I want same-sex marriage in Florida

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, defender of the sanctity of marriage, has appealed Florida’s marriage equality case to the U.S. Supreme Court.

She keeps following Gov. Rick Scott’s bigoted crusade to keep loving and committed couples from getting married and having their marriages recognized in Florida. In the process, they continue to waste hundreds of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars in a discredited ban that a federal court has already declared unconstitutional.

Marriage equality is already a reality in 35 states, but not in Florida, where Bondi, Scott and the dark forces of bigotry still want to drag our state back to the Middle Ages.

I live in Florida, my family is real, I was legally married in New York and I demand my family rights, like any other Floridian.
