The attorney general of Florida says in court documents that recognizing same sex marriages performed in other states would disrupt existing marriage laws and "impose significant public harm."
Eight gay couples and the American Civil Liberties Union sued the state in federal court in March. The lawsuit argues Florida is discriminating against the couples by not recognizing same-sex marriages performed in states where they are legal.

NBC Miami is an official sponsor, by the way, of the annual homosexual parade in Miami Beach. Their "journalists" even marched in the last gala.

This is in no way different than individuals that flee the jurisdiction of New York City because of taxation considerations. Income earned ANYTIME while within the city’s jurisdiction is subject to the local taxes, which makes for a very complex situation. That was exactly the reason Rush Limbaugh shifted from his EIB base in New York to the “Southern Command” EIB in Florida. Rush may, however, visit the city if there are no financial considerations or compensation paid during that visit.
Just Scott posing for the rubes that think he’s conservative via his stooge Bondi... All Scott cares about is pleasing his backers ,, the money center banks.
Uh, they aren’t rolling over like some Republicans and all Democrats. I think that is good.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
America is rapidly being transformed into a carbon copy of Sodom/Gomorrah and no one seems to give a rat’s *ss.
