How Florida Officials Plan To Undermine A Federal Marriage Equality Order

Florida to challenge court orderAt the end of the day on Monday, January 5, marriage equality will arrive in Florida, but most of the state’s county clerks are still planning to deny same-sex couples marriage licenses. They believe that they are still bound to follow the law banning those licenses, even though it was struck down.

Despite the cavalcade of marriage equality in states across the country over the past year, Florida’s case still presents a unique set of circumstances. It will be the first time that a federal district judge’s decision will take indefinite effect despite opposition from the state. Neither the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals nor the Supreme Court felt it necessary to extend a stay on an August ruling by Clinton-appointee Judge Robert L. Hinkle overturning the state’s ban. That decision takes effect next week.

Laundry Love builds community and washes clothes for the destitute

Laundry LoveFrom the Pacific Coast Highway exit off the freeway in Harbor City, it is impossible to miss the towering exhaust stacks of the Phillips 66 petroleum refinery and the mammoth cranes of the Los Angeles-Long Beach port complex. This is working-class L.A., 21 miles away and a world apart from the velvet-roped wonder of Tinseltown.

Across PCH from a payday loan shop and next door to a trailer park, King’s Laundry seems an unlikely vessel for hope in difficult times. But on a Thursday night in December, as a cheerful crowd of more than 100 men, women and children gathered in a parking lot to enjoy hot dogs, hearty soup and Christmas tunes played live by a church band, hope was exactly the thing on offer — in the form of free loads of laundry, courtesy of the volunteers who donate money, labor and laundry soap at Harbor City’s twice-monthly Laundry Love event.
