of a federal ban on gay marriage, the number of states that allow same sex marriage has jumped from 12 to 17. States like Oklahoma and Utah are one legal ruling away from joining the list.Now, gay rights groups are bringing the fight to Florida. Shannon Minter of the National Center for Lesbian Rights said, "We believe the laws in Florida that ban same sex couples from marriage are really out of step with where most Floridians are today."Six gay couples filed a lawsuit in Miami Dade court Tuesday challenging the current law. They believe a constitutional amendment approved in 2008 by 62 percent of Florida voters violates their federal rights.Catherina Pareto, one of the plaintiffs said, "We want our son to grow up in a world where his parents are respected and treated as equals, not second class citizens."The plaintiffs in Tuesday's lawsuit have been together for years. Many of them have children, and they believe the law is on their side. Nadine Smith, CEO of Equality Florida said, "We stand here with the knowledge that the majority of Floridians stand with us, and we have faith that the courts will do what is necessary."Republican turned democrat Charlie Crist was Florida's governor when the amendment passed. Now, as a gubernatorial candidate he supports it's repeal. He released this statement: "No one would want to be told they can't marry the person they love. It's an issue of fairness, and I'm proud to support it."Governor Rick Scott's office, however, has signaled the administration will defend the amendment in court. His office released this response: "Governor Scott supports traditional marriage. Florida voters amended the state constitution in 2008 to define marriage as between a man and a woman."But the couples involved in the lawsuit hope to show their love is stronger than the language blocking their legal union. Don Johnston, another plaintiff, said, "Please give George and I the opportunity so many other couples have had to stand with our friends and family and say, with this ring I thee wed."Plaintiffs Todd and Jeff Delmay have been together for sometime, and after 11 years had a son together. They wear rings on their right hands and they plan to move them to their left hands when they're legally married. "We said, 'You know what? This is what we want.' Well, who's going to make it happen? Well, we should," said Jeff Delmay.The Delmays believe the opinions of the public have shifted in favor of gay marriage. "I think hearts and minds change; I don't think they need to be convinced," said Todd Delmay. "I think, if an opinion poll or a referendum were held today it Prada Belt Bag Men

would be a very different result."The Delmays said their son is the reason they are willing to fight for their rights. "We know that Blake is too young now to understand that there is this one thing different, but there will come a time and a place where we know he will understand, there is this one thing. We want him to someday be at our wedding and to see that come to reality."The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has come out in favor of the lawsuit.
