Further discussion

February 8th, 2013

Gov. Neil Abercrombie, who declined to include a same-sex marriage bill in his legislative package, on Friday encouraged state House and Senate lawmakers to hear marriage legislation this session.

The state House Judiciary Committee and the Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee have yet to schedule hearings on the legislation. Several sources have privately doubted whether there are enough votes for marriage equality, while others say lawmakers should wait and see how the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the issue later this year.

From Abercrombie:

I have always supported human equality and agree with President Obama and our Congressional Delegation that all of our citizens should be treated equally.

Hawaii is a state defined by our diversity, compassion and aloha. I encourage our state legislators to hold hearings on the marriage equality bill so that we can further discussions on equal treatment under the law.

    In the entire history of the human race there has never been gay marriage. Not on any continent or island, not in any tribe, kingdom, or republic. Not in any religion or irreligion. Marriage has always been between male and female until the Broken Trust Hawaii Supreme Court took a break from its primary function–facilitating the looting of Bishop Estate–and invented gay marriage out of thin air in 1993. Then they went back to looting for 6 more years until the IRS shut down their racket.

    Wow, Auto de Fe, the Hawaii Supreme Court is so powerful that multiple states and nations, either by judicial, legislative, or electoral action, have adopted marriage equality? WOW! Who knew?

    Wow, OhiaForest, the claim that gay ‘marriage’ is a ‘civil right’ is so weak that the vast majority of the world’s people and their governments—representing billions—have flatly rejected it. Only a handful ignorant and backwards jurisdictions populated by weak-minded people desperate to prove their ‘political correctness’ have been fooled. Even California rejected gay ‘marriage’. WOW! Who knew?

    Who said marriage is carefree?
    For those who couldn’t care less.

    Those who knew are the carefree ones.
