Commentary: Florida's archaic gay adoptions ban

If you read my column regularly, you probably know my values. I am someone who tries to put into practice the most important tenet of the sacred scriptures: loving one's fellow man. To give meaning to my life, I help others. I have never had a run-in with the law. I pay my taxes. I have never even gotten a traffic ticket for a moving violation. Taking all this into account, you could make the argument that I would be a good father. In any state, except Florida, this would be possible. But here I am forbidden by law only because I am a gay man.
