Florida, USA: The Tampa Bay Times Endorses Marriage Equality

Written by scott on March 3rd, 2013

FloridaJust ran across this editorial in the Tampa Bay Times, endorsing the overturning of Prop 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act:

The tide is moving in one direction, toward the legal approval of marriage equality. As recognized by powerful people and institutions who are now making a public stand, it is a civil right whose time has come.

The editorial also takes on the GOP:

This group of Republicans is at the forefront of the kind of change the party will have to make to attract younger voters who overwhelmingly support the right of same-sex couples to marry. Pro-marriage equality Republicans make a conservative case that marriage creates stronger family bonds and helps couples to rely on each other rather than look to the state for support.

And Florida can’t even pass a domestic partnership bill?
