Miami media is doing a sick happy dance. Meanwhile, Florida's constitution AND the nation's Constitution is being shredded.

“Then, theyll order church ministers who believe the Bible to do it.”
Following and since Loving v Virginia, the federal courts have not ordered any minister to perform interracial marriages or for the matter, interfaith marriages.
Is exactly right, the media (at this point) are bright Yellow and not to be trusted with a ten foot pole.
Same in the Tampa Bay area - every promo for news during the weekend’s NFL games had some reporter just giddy with excitement.
