    Abercrombie said he chose to call a special session rather than allow legislators to consider the issue next year in part because of implications on taxes for this year.

    "There are serious, deep and wide-ranging consequences," Abercrombie said.

    Abercrombie said if legislators move quickly and efficiently, the special session could last four to five days.

    I don't think freedom should wait. We pay these guys enough to come in on the weekend every once and a while, wouldn't you say?

    more possible equality winning over discrimination.
    it be great to see these issues go minimum to state supreme courts and ruled on but ill take it this way too!
    The best solution would be SCOTUS hearing a direct case and ruling on it assuring all states stop discrimination and respect equal rights.

    Anyway the extra provision protection is a complete waste of time but its nice frosting to put on the bill to settle down the conspiracy theorist and fear mongers. I guess in ways its also smart though too since it makes the bogus claims of saying churches/religions are in danger even more silly.

    I hope it passes, just another stone in the road of equality!

    Hawaii has a part time legislature. I don't know why I know this. They meet for about 2 months out of the year.

    They'll eventually turn into fat, nasty married lesbians. It'd be a cruel ass trick if straight women let their looks go to hell while hot lesbians stay hot.

    I'd actually oppose gay marriage after that, just out of spite.

    Making more predictions? Want to add this one to DADT, SSM in Washington, the SCOTUS ruling, and the Boy Scouts? Don't you get tired of being wrong?

    That is and easy one.....All the Red states that Romney carried in the last election. Most of them have constitutional amendments banning gay marriage and they are not about to change them........You got all your going to get.
