Equality Florida: Attorney General Pam Bondi's response to gay marriage lawsuit 'deplorable'

Email from Nadine Smith of Equality Florida:

1bAttorney General Pam Bondi filed a response today asking a federal judge to throw out a marriage equality case arguing that recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states would “impose significant public harm” and “create significant problems for the state's pension and health insurance programs.”

This response is deplorable. The only Florida families suffering harm are the LGBT families who continue to be discriminated against. Pam Bondi is on the wrong side of history and on the wrong side of Florida public opinion, which shows 57% of Floridians now favor marriage equality. Judges appointed by Republicans and Democrats alike have 19 times in a row come to the inescapable conclusion that such bans are wrong and constitutionally indefensible. Attorneys General in states across the country have upheld their duty to the U.S. constitution by refusing to defend a law that so clearly violates basic rights.

We need to take action now! Send an email to the Attorney General today and let her know she needs to stop defending the indefensible. Please click the link below to send her an email or call her office at 1-866-966-7226.

We look forward to our day in court and are confident that equality and justice will prevail.
Nadine Smith,
Chief Executive Officer
Equality Florida
