Another Case of Judicial Whim: Judge Allows Gay Adoption


In another case of judicial whim, a Florida judge felt, and I stress 'felt', the 30 year law to be unconstitutional. I would like to know how it is unconstitutional. Here's what this equals, if you have a conservative family values law, it will eventually be ruled unconstitutional. The lesson here is that the people need to pump new life into the constitutional amendment process. Until you get things that ban gay marriage and adoption, as well as abortion, made into constitutional amendments, both states and federal, these laws will always be up to the whim of the Judiciary.

The best comment out of this story from the Miami Herald comes from another judge that made a similar ruling in Florida:

''Disqualifying every gay Floridian from raising a family, enjoying grandchildren or carrying on the family name, based on nothing more than lawful sexual conduct, while assuring child abusers, terrorists, drug dealers, rapists and murderers at least individualized consideration, `` Audlin wrote, was so ``disproportionately severe'' that it violates the state and U.S. Constitutions."

What is funny about this comment is that Gay people by choice cannot raise a family. It is biologically impossible. It is impossible for them to carry on their family name. Only through the conduct of heterosexual relations is it possible for the human species to continue. The way I see it, when you choose to lead a gay lifestyle, you give up on having a family.

From a "civil perspective" it is hard to have restrictions on the gay lifestyle because it is not illegal to be gay or engage in homosexual behavior. I think that you can only make the argument from a religious perspective.. but I could be wrong?

I don't think there should be the law banning the lifestyle, but there should be laws in place from recognizing such as being equal to hetero relations.

If homosexuality is legal then what would the basis in law be for restricting homosexual behaviors?

Maybe you could give me an example of a similar law?
