After much speculation from bloggers and media outlets, it does appear that what many viewed as a conveniently timed wedding between Florida Governor Charlie Crist and Carole Rome is still on. A4S_kiss071308_30484d.jpgThe wedding announcement came out when Crist was on the short list for Vice-President on the McCain ticket and was seen by many as a way to put years of rumors about his sexuality to rest.

Well, the wedding is still on for December 12th and it hasn't escaped the notice of one gay rights group in Florida. The group Impact-Florida has announced it will be protesting Crist's wedding over his support of Amendment 2, the recently passed "Marriage Protection" amendment that not only bans same-sex marriage but could also have a devastating impact on domestic partnership rights.

Head over to Bilerico-Florida for the full story on the Crist Wedding protest.

That is funnier than hell. I hope someone has a sign that says, "Here's one gay marriage in Florida!" :)

You've GOT to go to the protest, Waymon, and get lots of pictures. LOL

Oh no the real deal would be to have someone stand up and object at the very appropriate moment that everyone knows is written into every wedding ceremony. It is written in because marriage it self is between the two people standing in public to say " I am marrying you and you are marrying me". it is not the officiant. and therefore if someone has an objection as to why they should not be married they have the right to speak up or forever hold their piece!!! The perfect moment for the protest to be loud!!! The piss in the pants moment, the moment where the people wold be able to say I object to this man because he objects to us being married by supporting prop 2! the moment the gay lovers whould rise up and say I object because I "did" him or he "did" me and you know...!! LOL
