Crist has "to think about" gay adoption

Gov. Charlie Crist is showing some inconsistency on his stance on gay adoption during a statewide tour to promote adoption as an alternative to abortion. From the Florida Times-Union:

During a visit to Jacksonville to promote adoption in Florida, Gov. Charlie Crist reiterated his opposition to gay adoption in the state.

But when asked about it three hours earlier in Tallahassee, he sounded less opposed.


Earlier in the day, Tallahassee reporters asked if he would support legislation to change the law, he left the door open, saying, "I'd have to think about it."

In November 2008, a judge ruled that Florida's ban on gay adoption was unconstitutional. The state is appealing.
