    Hawaii Gov. Calls Special Session on Gay Marriage

    Hawaii Gov. Calls Special Session on Gay Marriage

    HONOLULU September 10, 2013 (AP)
    By OSKAR GARCIA Associated Press






    Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Monday called for a special legislative session to move forward on a bill that would legalize gay marriage.
    If lawmakers pass a bill, Hawaii would join 13 U.S. states and the District of Columbia in allowing gay marriage. The special session is scheduled to begin Oct. 28.
    The bill is the culmination of 20 years of discussion, Abercrombie told reporters during a news conference at the Hawaii Capitol.
    "Every variation on a view with regard to the issue of marriage and equitable treatment for those engaged in marriage has been aired, has been analyzed, has been discussed," Abercrombie said. "No one has been left out or has been marginalized in the process to this point."
    Abercrombie acknowledged that some people will be against the bill because they disagree with the concept of gay marriage, but he said it includes provisions including a religious exemption to protect First Amendment rights.

    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!

    I don't think he realizes that if he does this, Hawaii will literally sink into the ocean.

    Two girls in bikinis on the beach kissing? I like it. Hell, you could sell tickets to that.

    You do know it's not actually like the toy boat mom gives you to play with in the bathtub right, it's not just floating there until you fill it with water?

    I'm pro-gay marriage, but some of you guys are becoming caricatures of what it means to be pro-gay marriage.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
