`The time has come’

January 28th, 2013

U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, has joined other prominent Democrats in urging state lawmakers to approve same-sex marriage.

From the senator:

The time has come to make marriage equality a reality for Americans around the country, so that all people can exercise that right in freedom and without restriction. I am pleased that President Obama supports marriage equality, and that the State of Hawai’i has a proud history of leadership in civil rights. I encourage State lawmakers to pass legislation that will ensure equal rights for all Hawaii residents.

    The “State of Hawai’i has a proud history of leadership in civil rights”? Really, what do you call Hawaii’s first-in-the-nation constitutional amendment to deny marriage equality to gays? The one opposed by your Senate colleague, Mazie Horono, one of the few with the guts to do that at the time, when you were what, in high school? Were you not politically aware just yet?

    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.

    Am I the only one who finds it odd that Senator Schatz wouldn’t include in his statement the words “I support marriage equality”?

    I give her a lot of credit for that. Another who had the guts to publicly oppose that amendment was Ed Case.

    “In the entire history of the human race there has never been gay marriage. ”

    It’s been going on for awhile in Europe.
