It's been fifteen years since Hawaii overwhelmingly voted against "gay marriage." Last Monday, Sept. 9, the Governor decided to go for broke to try to make it a reality in in that state. He has called a special session of the Legislature to convene on Oct. 28, for the sole purpose of taking up his new "gay marriage" bill.
A "gay marriage" bill had already been introduced in this year's session. But by the time the session ended on May 2, it had failed to gain sufficient support and was never brought to a vote. Much of that was due to heavy pressure against it by churches.
So the homosexual lobby, working closely with the Governor, went into high gear, and by early August they had crafted a new bill which the pro-homosexual governor publicly unveiled for "examination" by the legislators. The new bill strengthens the "religious exemptions" which had been an issue with legislators. The Governor began lobbying them heavily on the new bill, and now claims that he has the votes to pass it, and thus has called the special session.
In an exchange with one Republican state legislator, the Governor actually admitted that he foresaw "gay marriage" possibly leading to polygamous unions. Apparently he has no problem with that:
[The legislator] asked the Governor, "Based on your reasoning that Same-Sex Marriage is a civil right, then how can you disenfranchise a bi-sexual from marrying the people he/she loves?"
His response, "I fully expect a lawsuit to be filed in about a year."

Looks more and more like I’ll be around for the second coming...
Let it sink into the ocean
For issues on which they cannot gain a consensus they now simply declare majority support and enact by command.
Maybe one day voters will see the cause and effect of putting these dictatorial a-holes in positions of authority.
Few things will thrill the people of HI more than “gay marriage”. I’m surprised they haven’t had this for decades now.
If only hussein had waited for this.
It's the legislature that is now causing this trouble. Despite being avidly socialist in fiscal issues, the people of HI are fairly conservative socially.
It will be interesting to see exactly how the legislature tries to enact this. They don't have the votes currently.
