ABERCROMBIE WILL SIGN GAY MARRIAGE BILL WEDNESDAY
Honolulu Star Advertiser ^ | Nov 12, 2013 | staff

Posted on 11/12/2013 8:22:13 PM PST by LeoWindhorse

The state Senate, as expected, overwhelmingly approved a marriage equity bill today, sending the measure to Gov. Neil Abercrombie who has vowed to sign it and make Hawaii the 15th state to legalize same-sex marriage.

An invitation-only bill-signing ceremony is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Hawaii Convention Center's Liliu Theater

Hawaii is about to become the newest fag paradise . This was done over the wishes of the great majority of the people . It was never put to a vote . It is a huge example of the tyranny of the gay agenda .

We should never have made Hawaii a state. Should have just been an overseas territory. That way, you’d have two less libtards in the senate.

I am in Hilo, and spent from 9/11/13 - 11/10/13 completely & utterly submerged in fighting this. We had a conference call today with folks from across the state on the next step. Do you know David and Rick in Kona, the guys we were working with?

It was voted on.

The people voted AGAINST it in the referendum.

The legislators voted FOR it this week.

The vast majority of the public is still against it. So will they vote the trash out? Doubtful.

I know that you see only blue when you think of Hawaii, but Hawaii is an important state that, for so many, proudly flies Old Glory. I grew up in Illinois - do you think we should have withheld statehood for that blue atrocity? Home of Lincoln & Reagan? There are many outstanding patriots here. Hawaii’s history set the stage for a one party system, but it can be broken. Many of us islanders are your comrades-in-arms against Progressive tyranny. Please don’t dismiss us.

Hawaii is a great State , we just need to find a way to keep all the West Coast and East Coast Libs out .
They have infested Hawaii , with their snooty know-it-all ways , and are making it into a progressive cesspool . Most of the locals are asleep at the wheel . No time for get involved , too busy working or go beach

Stop the presses. The governor of Hawaii is about to sign a law affecting less than 3% of the population.

judging by the utter ineffectiveness of the HRP , don’t hold your breathe . They are about as useless as tits on a boar hog . Completely defeatist , utterly incompetent campaign advisers , squishy RINO’s , and just barely preferable to the damn Dems . All but Sam Slom ; the only decent politician in the whole state .

No it’s going to affect all of us . The arrogant flamers are going to get way more ‘out there’ than they are already . Get ready for SF style Folsum St. events .

Is it time for the torches and pitchforks yet ? Or do we endlessly depend on these idiotic political games and ‘processes ‘ ? WE are losing

Oh, you mean another referendum? Yes, that would have been good.

The people would have voted the same way they did in '98...maybe even more against.

Abercrombie and his gang are sickos. He's the most unpopular governor in the US.

I’m truly convinced our nation is entering God’s judgment.

We abort over a million babies a year. We celebrate sodomy. We call evil good, and good evil.

Ana election or two is not going to save this nation. We are entering very dark times.

I am in Keaau and thoroughly disgusted starting with Evercrummy through the Senate and House. We worked as hard as we could with the limited time we had to get folks aroused to oppose this same-sex marriage crap, but the whole fiasco was a foregone setup from the start.
My efforts from here on in are to work for the defeat of Hanohano and Onishi.
This has been a case of elected officials voting their desires opposed to the desires of the voters.

I propose shifting energy output from general criticism to specific constructive action. I worked hard for Lingle in the first campaign, and not quite so hard in the second (when she won). I worked very hard for Aiona & Finnegan and was in shock for a long time at their epic loss. I visited churches all over the Big Island in the run-up to the election, with a large sign mounted on pvc pipe saying: Christians - Do you know the voting record of Neil Abercrombie? I stood outside churches on Sundays as the congregation left the parking lot, handing out sheets listing Abercrombie’s votes in Congress. And I have just spent 60 days straight on all manner of things to prevent this homosexualization. Now the task is to organize statewide with all of the churches to put into the House & Senate good candidates, district by district. Onishi will be taken out of my district. I will devote the next year to seeing this happen.

Maybe we know each other. I’m the one who organized the meeting at the Keaau Community Center with Onishi, who then backed out, but 60 showed up and we showed the Mass Resistance video. Write me an email and we will work together to oust the 2 you mention. We had a group phone discussion today at 2pm with Dylan Nonaka & Lani Kaaa & Richard Fale’s wife about finding and running good candidates in each district.

Can somebody explain this bill to me? I was under impression Hawaii voters amended their constitution. Does state legislature there have the power to undo amendments or do I have it wrong?

Just seems weird to me. The left keeps saying “Don’t vote on gay marriage/’civil rights’” but when the vote goes their way they don’t seem to complain.

Iran nuking up, problem solved. Record unemployment, problem solved. Massive deficits, problem solved. Foreign invasion on the southern border, problem solved. Chinese threats to asian allies, problem solved. Economy on life support, problem solved. Pot holes, problem solved. I guess all thats left to do is increase the divorce lawyers’ client base and let homosexuals marry.

Personally I dont care aboutthe issue. The government shouldn’t be involved. No, anyone would have to be an idiot to get married, economically speaking. Obamacare pretty much killed off the institution with the marriage penalties.

Actually, it was put to a vote. It was passed by the legislature and about to be signed by the executive, which is how things work in a republic.

leading the Republican Caucus in the State House ,she led and encouraged the R group in voting for and approving the creation of Islam Day in Hawaii . Then she stuck to her guns on the matter and tried to deny everything ,until it became a major campaign issue that everyone was asking her about in the run up to election . Until forced to make a fuzzy and smarmy semi-apology and disavowal of knowing what the proposed resolution was all about . Zero homework , zero leadership and then a degree of cover-up . She lost a lot of support . She hurt Duke . but cute....

The way their constitution amendment was constructed, the spirit of the amendment was that marriage redefinition was prohibited by the people of Hawaii. I presume that a back-door loophole was inserted by sodomites to allow for Congress to ignore the people.

It should have been written more durably. But then, who would have thought 15 years ago that the attacks against marriage would ever become so vicious?

Actually, that's not the case. I just looked it up, and the amendment asked this question:
Shall the Constitution of the state of Hawaii be amended to specify that the Legislature shall have the power to reserve marriage to opposite-sex couples?
That's it.

Not "must gay marriage be banned", or "should it be banned" or even "do you want it to be banned". Just "should the Legislature have the authority to ban it." And whatever the Legislature has the option to prohibit, it also has the power to allow.

So this is perfectly in line with both the letter and spirit of the Constitutional amendment. We don't have to like the results, but this is exactly how a representative democracy is supposed to work. If this is truly against the will of the people, they can vote the representatives and governor out of office and pass a stricter amendment. That's the rule of law. What matters is how we respond now.
