In the even-a-stopped-clock-is-right-twice-a-day catagory, a federal appeals court has upheld Florida's same-sex adoption ban:
A federal appeals court yesterday upheld Florida's ban on same-sex adoptions, ruling the landmark Texas sodomy case does not establish a right for homosexuals to parent displaced children.
The Florida legislature properly judged it is not in the best interests of its displaced children to be adopted by individuals who engage in voluntary homosexual activity, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta said.
The court said it "found nothing in the Constitution that forbids this policy judgment. Thus, any argument that the Florida legislature was misguided in its decision is one of legislative policy, not constitutional law."
Encouraging news, especially when taken with the court's slam against judicial activist:
"The legislature is the proper forum for this debate, and we do not sit as a superlegislature to award by judicial decree what was not achievable by political consensus," it said.
How did these guys ever get on an appeal's court? I say promote the lot of them to the Supreme Court immediately!
