Latest update on Florida’s gay marriage lawsuit. IT’S STILL ON.
So, it was just a week or so ago that we were telling you how Florida Family Policy Council nutjob John Stemberger and his boyfriend (er, partner in crime) Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel (WHICH IS NOW A HATE GROUP, NATCH) were – cough – inserting themselves into Florida’s legal volley to get gay marriage passed through the courts (because our boyfriend House Speaker Will Weatherford totally won’t do anything legislatively, even though that’s not what he said LAST NIGHT!). Whatevs with that deflection dramz, because today the team of attorneys representing the six couples suing for the right to marry in Miami-Dade County responded to the the clerk of courts initial response (basically, that he didn’t think it was right that he be the focus of all this, even though clerk Harvey Ruvin is the one who physically refused to issue these folks marriage licenses in January) with an audible eyeroll. Below, you’ll find today’s filing and then, beneath that, Ruvin’s attempt at logic from three weeks ago. Big wheel keep on turning, proud Mary keep on burning. SHOOP SHOOP SHOOP.
