Breaking: Crist Urges Scott to Declare FL Will Not Challenge Marriage Ruling!!


~~August 29, 2014~~ 

This I have to post “verbatim” … this is how important this is!! I must confess that I’m not a fan of either Rick Scott or Charlie Crist.

People in Florida voted last Tuesday, August 26, 2014. Charlie Crist won the primary for his party. He will be one of the candidates on the next election. If Mr. Crist can get this done I will have to give him lots of credit. 


“As it appears on … “

Crist Urges Scott to Declare That Florida Will Not Challenge
Latest Federal Decision on Marriage for All

St. Petersburg, FlaCharlie Crist, the People’s Governor, sent a letter to Governor Rick Scott today urging him to declare that Florida will not challenge the latest federal ruling on marriage for all issued by U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle. Letter included below.


Dear Governor Scott:

Four years ago, a district court of appeals ruled Florida’s ban on gay and lesbian adoption unconstitutional. When the ruling came down, I believed it was my job as Governor to exercise the authority vested in me by the people and our Constitution. The day the judge ruled, I declared Florida’s adoption ban over. Gay and lesbian parents began adopting the children they loved immediately.

It is one of my proudest moments as an elected official.


Last Thursday Federal District Judge Robert Hinkle gave you the same chance to speak out for what is right when, in a ruling that would apply statewide, he struck down Florida’s ban on same sex marriage. By declaring the marriage ban finished you could discourage any future appeals and end the nightmare that loving same sex couples all across our state endure every single day, ending court battles that could drag on for months or years

Courts throughout Florida are endorsing the principle that government ought not deprive an entire class of citizens the right to marry simply because of whom they love. Florida deserves a governor who will stand up for all of the people of this state.


You have the power to end the suffering of people like Arlene Goldberg. Last March, Arlene lost her wife and partner of 47 years, Carol Goldwasser. At a moment of enormous and understandable grief, Arlene had to suffer the humiliation of not being listed as Carol’s wife on the death certificate. Even worse, she lost her home because she was denied the social security benefits they had earned.

When faced with a very similar decision four years ago I did what I believed was best for Florida and best for the thousands of children waiting to be adopted by loving parents.

Today, I urge you to do what’s best for Floridians and declare the state will not be challenging Judge Hinkle’s Order or any other orders supporting the rights of all Floridians to marry.

Expulsion from school …. for same sex relationship!

Florida teen fights expulsion and criminal charges for same sex relationship

Kaitlyn Hunt was expelled from school and faces criminal charges for dating a fellow female student.

Most high school seniors are excitedly preparing to put on their cap and gown and looking forward to the future right now.  Kaitlyn Hunt, 18, is instead fighting bigotry and hoping she won’t be forced to go to jail instead of college.  Her crime?  Dating another student – a female student.  Kaitlyn’s family  took her story public on May 17th, via Facebook. Hunt was a highly respected student at Florida’s Sebastian River High School with good grades and participation in cheerleading, basketball and chorus.  She was even voted “most school spirit.”

All of that changed when she started dating a fellow student, a girl she met on the basketball team, at the beginning of the school year.

According to Kaitlyn’s father, Steven R. Hunt, Jr., the relationship caused waves at the school from the start.  His daughter was dropped from the basketball team because the coach feared a same-sex relationship would bring unwanted “drama.”

Then the family was shocked and devastated when police came to their home in February to arrest Kaitlyn.  She was charged with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child 12 – 16 years of age.

Kaitlyn was 17 when the relationship began, but right after she turned 18, her 15-year-old girlfriend’s parents pressed charges.  Hunt’s mother, Kelley Hunt Smith, says the other set of parents have made it their mission to destroy her daughter’s life, all because they can’t accept that their child was in a same sex relationship.

The girl’s family petitioned the school board and got Katilyn expelled from school, weeks before graduation.  This decision was made in spite of a judge declaring she could continue to attend school as long as she didn’t have contact with the girl.

Kelley explained,

“They are out to destroy my daughter, because they feel like she ‘made’ their daughter gay. They see being gay as wrong and they blame my daughter. Of course, I see it 100% differently. I don’t see or label these girls as gay. They are teenagers in high school experimenting with their sexuality – with mutual consent.  And even if their daughter is gay, who cares?  She is still their daughter.”

The heartache for the Hunt family continues even with Kaitlyn forced out of the school.  Steven said their younger child is also a student at Sebastian River High School and is forced to see words like “criminal,” “rapist” and “child abuser” written about her sister on the bathroom walls at school, despite his repeated request that the school to do something about it.

Kaitlyn has been offered a plea deal of house arrest for two years, plus a year of probation.  This would delay her entering the next phase of her life and stay on her permanent adult record, limiting her career choices.

Her parents say all of this is because she fell in love with another girl and that girl’s parents couldn’t handle it.  They are urging the public to step up to “stop the hate, free Kate” by signing a petition they will present to the Indian River County State Attorney’s Office.    Click here to sign.  You can also learn more about Kaitlyn Hunt’s story on the Free Kate Facebook page.
