  • Gary W. Pollack Esq.

    The citizens of our state of Florida should be furious at both Attorney General Biondi and our Governor Scott for appealing this decision. Our laws should be more inclusive giving every citizen equal rights under law. There is zero rational thought to taking an appeal to deny the rights of any two people who are in love and want to enjoy the legal benefits of marriage. The idea that our government would fight to take rights away from its citizens should sicken all of us, gay or straight. It is a sad day that our chief legal officer and her boss surge forward on the wrong side of history and the wrong side of justice. On the other hand, my gay brothers and sisters, keep your chins up ...this battle against injustice is nearing its end and one day the appellants will understand these words that were written long ago....We hold these truths to be self evident...that all men are created equal...
    Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are inalienable rights that our government should be fighting to protect, not to take away.
