FTA:
Republican state Rep. Bob McDermott said in a letter to Abercrombie on Friday he will file a request for a temporary restraining order if the bill passes, the Honolulu Star Advertiser reported Tuesday. A state judge has said he will hear the case if the bill passes.

Even the HI GOP resorts to whining and foot stomping when they don't get their bigoted way. Sad.

But good for you, HI! You started this back in the 90s. It's good to see you finally finish it.

Also, aren't temporary restraining orders usually for things that would harm people if they are allowed to go into effect, like laws requiring abortion clinics to have 14 foot hallways and admission privileges and granite countertops? Who is harmed by this?

They're outnumbered by Dems about 4 to 1 in the House, and I believe there's only 1 Republican in the Senate, so they have almost no power at all. But there were a few Dems who opposed this legislation, so it wasn't necessarily a party issue. The general opinion from what I've read is that the courts will likely rule that the legislature had the power to decide.

Well clearly one must only look at all those straight marriages that are now failing in states that allow homo-marriage. Why, I hear that now at least 50% of straight marriages end in divorce there!

In many cases gay marriage passage is a gradual process, Hawaii, Illinois, Washington, New Jersey, Maryland, etc all had domestic partnerships similar to marriage before they allowed gay marriage. So none of this is just out of the blue, people build up a tolerance over time and realize that gay people are just people like anyone else. Go figure.

Which is why Colorado, Oregon, and Nevada are probably next. They all have domestic partnerships and a majority of support for gay marriage.  Of course previous legislation is not exactly necessary, but it helps. Michigan might pass gay marriage through the legislator next year, but its worth nothing that both Michigan and Nevada have Republican governors but with support in both states near 60 percent it'd be suicide possibly for either them to veto such legislation assuming it passes. Colorado and Oregon though are for sure.

As for Virginia, I wouldn't hold your breath for them to do anything in 2014. With public support in Virginia not quite at a majority, and no previous legislation. Yeah, no. 2015 maybe? Or maybe 2016. I doubt they'll hold out as long as Texas, Alabama, Georgia, and maybe Florida.

The South won't bother until the Supreme Court forces them to, and even then it'll take a few decades minimum before they get around to removing the text from their lawbooks.

The Hawaii supreme Court ruled for same sex marriage in the mid 90s, which kicked off DOMA. HI soon thereafter amended the constitution to allow the legislature to define marriage as straight only.

This undoes that law.

Hey, I remember some comic from the 80s call "Homosexuality: Legitiment, Alternative Deathstyle". I kid you not, the cover had a bunch of zombies destroying D.C. It was pretty much an even more snark baiting chick tract that featured Andy Dick, the old guy from Up, and Ward Cleaver giving a... disturbingly detailed account of the horrors that await if we tolerate the gay. "Gay people touch food! Oh yuck!"
I'm just saying, it was published by a homophobe in the pre-Internet days, yet it goes into graphic sexual details, where gays congregate. I'm a little suspicious.
/Could anyone get some pics?

Both the CO and OR governors are in a bad spot.  If they sign on, regardless of majority public opinion, they will still have a Tea Party primary challenger on this issue alone.  They may loose their jobs over that , regardless a Tea Party Republican stands little chance of election in those states.

It's not the corporate pillaging of second and third world nations.

It's not waging war on countries who had nothing to do with 9/11, while cozying up to those who did.
It's not about being completely and utterly paranoid as a nation.

No. It's the ghei that will damn us as a country.

I love how there's a passage on the first picture that says "What consenting adults do in the privacy of their homes CAN hurt you.".

I want to know how. Because the only way I could see it happen is if the gay couple next door rams the bed so hard that your fishing trophy slides off the shelf and falls on your head.

Here in Virginia, at least in Richmond, captital city, capital of the confederacy and all that, the city gubment is passing legislation to recognize same sex partners for city workers. not that they can do anything about it on account of state wide legeslation, but because the city leaders see the writing on the wall and want to have the language in place for when the state does... turn... as it were.

so.. if folks in capital city can smell something on the wind here in Virginia.. that is a good sign...


One must remember.. Richmond VA, like a lot of other really old southern cities,  have a reallyreallyreally big Gay population. and our major urban centers in NorVa and Hampton Rhodes/VABEAtch, are keeping a lot of the southwestern Bigots at bay. I point to our recent gubernatorial elections as evidence of that trend.

CSB-
When we first moved to Oahu the wife and I went for a drive up the windward side to check out the beaches. At one park some locals were hanging out fishing and drinking beer. We started talking and they said to be careful if we went to the next beach up the coast because lots of mahus hung out there. I had been warned about Samoans, Filipinos, Tongans and all kinds of other folks so I didn't worry about it. The next day at work I asked one of the aunties what island mahus were from and she said 'Key West!' When everyone stopped laughing she explained that mahu is Hawaiian Pidgin for 'gay'.

Well It's not like I plan on getting married but I would like the right to and gotta say Hawaii would be a hell of a getaway wedding destination.

Cerebral Knievel: Here in Virginia, at least in Richmond, captital city, capital of the confederacy and all that, the city gubment is passing legislation to recognize same sex partners for city workers. not that they can do anything about it on account of state wide legeslation, but because the city leaders see the writing on the wall and want to have the language in place for when the state does... turn... as it were.

so.. if folks in capital city can smell something on the wind here in Virginia.. that is a good sign...


One must remember.. Richmond VA, like a lot of other really old southern cities,  have a reallyreallyreally big Gay population. and our major urban centers in NorVa and Hampton Rhodes/VABEAtch, are keeping a lot of the southwestern Bigots at bay. I point to our recent gubernatorial elections as evidence of that trend.


Oh, I'm sure they'll pass something sooner rather than later but purple states are still at the mercy of the GOP, so even if they don't hold out as long as true red states like Texas it'll still be a while yet. After all, as bad a democrat as the new Virginia governor is, Ken Cuccinelli still got 45 percent of the vote despite being anti-gay/anti-blowjobs, wanted to bring back sodomy laws, etc. So yes, I agree that its only a matter of when rather then if VA joins the ranks and possibly in the next few years. Meanwhile, Texas maybe not until 2020 if the Feds don't tell them otherwise.

FTFA:
Republican state Rep. Bob McDermott said in a letter to Abercrombie on Friday he will file a request for a temporary restraining order if the bill passes, the Honolulu Star Advertiser reported Tuesday. A state judge has said he will hear the case if the bill passes.

On what basis could they possibly challenge this?

The Hawaiian constitution specifically gives the legislature the right to pass a law banning gay marriage.

FTFHC
"The legislature shall have the power to reserve marriage to opposite-sex couples."

If they have the power to do that, then clearly they have the power not to do so.

And because of prior cases, they don't need to specifically allow for gay marriage as long as they don't specifically ban it (per that constitutional amendment) they have no choice but to accept them (as it was found to be against the Hawaiian Constitution prior to the above amendment, which doesn't ban gay marriage but merely allows the legislature to do so).

- Oh, look. Those lesbians are wearing grass skirts at their wedding. How traditional.

- They're not wearing grass skirts.

Phil the SWO: But good for you, HI! You started this back in the 90s. It's good to see you finally finish it.


www.learnthailanguage.org

In particular, 20 years ago (seriously, holy fark, 20 freakin' years?!) in 1993, Baehr v. Miike was decided by the Hawaii Supreme Court, holding that the state's refusal to grant gay couples marriage licenses was discriminatory. This led directly to DoMA in 1996 and a constitutional amendment in Hawaii in 1998 and dozens of other state constitutional amendments and laws banning gay marriage.  A dark time, until Massachusetts legalized gay marriage in 2003, 10 years later.
Hawaii has now come back to the fold, and I'm glad to see it. And look on the bright side, guys - you're still in the top third.

Yada, yada, will of the people who voted for the amendment, etc., etc. It doesn't need to be a winning argument, just one that convinces a conservative judge that he won't immediately be reversed if he says "yes, I need to at least stay this temporarily while we hold a trial to hear more about arguments, with plenty of time for discovery and expert opinions."

It's like the old saying - you can sue  anyone... the question is whether you'll survive even summary judgement.

I think that HI will be among the winners in the eyes of history not because they were one of the first two end marriage inequality, but because they weren't FORCED to do it by SCOTUS. I have a feeling that 20, MAYBE 25 will be in that club.

Paris1127: Richard C Stanford: Hey, I remember some comic from the 80s call "Homosexuality: Legitiment, Alternative Deathstyle". I kid you not, the cover had a bunch of zombies destroying D.C. It was pretty much an even more snark baiting chick tract that featured Andy Dick, the old guy from Up, and Ward Cleaver giving a... disturbingly detailed account of the horrors that await if we tolerate the gay. "Gay people touch food! Oh yuck!"
I'm just saying, it was published by a homophobe in the pre-Internet days, yet it goes into graphic sexual details, where gays congregate. I'm a little suspicious.
/Could anyone get some pics?
//Alternative Deathstyle would be a pretty good band name.

Not so much stupidity as some SERIOUS projection.  Dick Hafer had some major self-hatred and guilt going on.

What I loved about listening to the gnashing of teeth from those opposed, they liked to say, "This was rushed!  Rammed through!  You need to hear more voices, OUR voices!"

Well, hell.
 

Here is the Hawaii Legislature's records page for this bill.

http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/measure_indivSS.aspx?billtype=SB&billn um ber=1&year=2013b

The log of people who mailed or emailed commentary on this issue is the right sidebar, complete with scans of their comments.

I dare you to read it ALL.

Every single piece of testimony, both expert and from the wildcard line.

And that doesn't even cover transcriptions of verbal testimony given between 10/31 and 11/5...of which over five thousand people signed up to speak.  I'm still looking for those, bet those must be an absolute riot.  Especially if the reporter included physical descriptions of the speakers.  (Pro-SSM supporters were often seen wearing rainbow lei.  Anti...were generally seen wearing shirts with some kind of church slogan.)

Man, that is disappointing. I'd have expected someone named Ammon Ho'oululahui Cabrinha to be significantly cooler than that.

I think same sex marriages are a good thing.

Why should straight men be the only ones taken for half their shiat when their cheating wives (same sex partners for butt-pirates / carpet-munchers) file for divorce.

That's because there is this disparaging perception that all persons with an ethnicity other than Caucasian Indo-European are supposed to be more enlightened to the progressive cause.

Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: Who is harmed by this?


This is my understanding of the logic: All men are actually gay; they only put up with women because society frowns on man-man lovin'. If it ever becomes socially acceptable, then society will collapse as men abandon women entirely, leaving nobody to create children.

It's a reasonable thing to think if you're a gay man growing up in a conservative area; since you and every other gay man you might know are closeted, maybe everyone is closeted - maybe the men you know who appear to like the ladies are just doing a better job of closeting than you.

This is why the gheis are weak. To prove your manhood you must withstand marriage to a woman. This is why the lezbuns are scary.

I don't much care for the person's ethnicity, to be honest; I just believe that if you've got a name like Ammon Ho'oululahui Cabrinha, you have a responsibility to be at least moderately cool. It'd be just as disappointing if the person was white.

In the state that came within a couple of percentage points of putting a rabid homophobe in charge last week? Not a chance, not for at least a few more years.

Meantime, Maryland is right next door. Come on over, get married, go home, and then sue the fark out of them so that the Supreme Court can overturn the rest of DOMA.

I come from a "savage" country myself, so I really don't need any lectures any lectures about the range of opinions that can be held by nonwhite people. I was just making a joke about what I thought was a cool-sounding name.

Some of you just need to relax and not try and turn every little thing into a teaching moment.
