Fed Court Strikes Down Oklahoma’s Anti-Gay Adoption Law

Whereas our federal government seems insistent on bringing the anti-gay marriage amendment to the Senate floor, things are looking up in the federal court system.  More accurately, we aren't losing ground in the federal courts

On Friday, the US District Court ruled that an Oklahoma law banning LGBT couples from adopting was so extreme that it threatened to invalidate adoptions from other states.  If a gay couple traveled to Oklahoma, their parental rights would not be recognized while they are in the state.

What the hell kind of sense does that make? As one of the judges opined, the adoption was approved by a court in another state which indicates that it was deemed to be in the best interest of the child(ren).

Obviously, Oklahoma has some serious homo-hating folks in their legislature.  Or back home among the voting faithful.

Is it progress that we can now visit Oklahoma without our children being deemed orphans?  Hmmm.
