    "Several Florida circuit judges and a U.S. judge in Tallahassee have already declared the state's ban [against gay marriage] unconstitutional. {Florida Republican State Attorney General] Bondi and [Republican] Gov. Rick Scott have appealed those rulings. The judges have agreed to stay their rulings pending those appeals.

    Bondi has maintained all along she was waiting for the U.S. Supreme Court to resolve the issue.

    Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida, said his group is filing a request Monday that asks U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle to dissolve the stay he issued in the federal case."

    Yeah, but that's OK. She's a family values Christian, despite her own checkered past in that regard. It's only the gays who need to be demonized and penalized. So long as you're a straight Republican Christian, you can do anything you like with your marriage, and it's fine and dandy.

    more likely than you think:
    the Colorado Attorney General, a conservative republican in my state has said he will be dropping the effort to block same sex here.

    best wishes and hope it happens for you
