First gay couple in Florida to legally wed. A Sheriff's deputy (in uniform) to a former Marine.
Congratulations are in order:
Detective David Currie, 50, and his now-husband Aaron Woodard, 33, tied the knot shortly after midnight on Tuesday, when the state legalized gay marriage. And after requesting permission from his superiors, Currie walked down the registry aisle with full support of the Broward County Sheriff's to wed in uniform.Does this disgust you, wingnut? Don't you support our cops/troops?? Why do you hate police officers??
We have finally turned a corner in this state. We went from rampant homophobia (perfectly encapsulated by former governor Jeb Bush's rant comparing gays to pedophiles and drunk drivers) to now seeing statewide support for marriage equality.
Marco Rubio and other backwards politicians are pushing Florida AG PamBo to continue to fight this already lost battle to the US Supreme Court, even though they recently shredded her last minute plea for an injunction. PamBo tried to argue that marriage was meant only for couples who planned to breed and provide "enduring family relationships".
This coming from a childless, twice-divorced adulterer who currently has a "living in sin" arrangement with her boyfriend.
Oh, and the happy couple shown here? They are foster-parent certified and plan to raise children! (Gay adoption has been legal in Florida since 2010, when then-AG Bill McCollum's leading "expert" he paid to fight it turned out to have a proclivity for hiring male hookers.)
I wish David and Aaron the best in their new lives together and the love they will bring to their children who deserve it and badly need it.
You see, Pam Bondi, THIS is what a real marriage looks like. Maybe try it sometime before you bash it?
