This is all Political Correctness 101 for the 99% brainwashed masses.
Once again, what was your rational, constitutional and educated reason for opposing same sex marriage when you did?
Where in the Constiution did the founding fathers mention marriage?

I always found it a little suspect when a group of "Christians" decided to go to a tropical paradise to help the "needy".
Oh, don't get me wrong... I'm sure there are needy people in even the nicest locations on the planet.
But preaching the gospel in a seaside village in Hawaii is a far cry from helping those in remote, famine ravaged, locales where the death rate is about 150 time higher than it is here in the US.
I'm curious, Kim, why Hawaii? Why not the slums of India? Why not the parched and impoverished lands of Sub-Saharan Africa?
How "convenient" that God called you to go to paradise; taking money from Pat Robertson (of all people). He gets his money by begging for it on TV shows--taking it from many who can barely afford to give it--making them feel ashamed if they don't write checks--promising them that God will give them back ten times whatever they pledge.
And all the while he is one of the wealthiest men on the planet with a net worth of over $140 million.
Thanks, but not thanks... I'd rather be in cahoots with a snake than that man.
Doing missions work in Hawaii... Please!
I'm glad to know you are looking out for Hawaii.

Here is a brief synopsis of my 25 years there.

We moved on an average of every two years because we rented until the last seven years. I was in my mid forties when we bought our first home. Instead of $1,200 rent, I paid $1,300 mortgage. That was in 98.

I worked as a hotel night auditor and house painter for the first 10 years, pastoring without pay.

I experienced during that time being a minority,'f---ing hoale', because of my skin color.'Haole boy' went from being a slur to a term of affection.

We fostered almost ten children along with raising two sons during that time. Without one dime of assistance.

I was a founding member, and eventually President of the following non-profit community services, all without a single penny of compensation;

Crosslines ~ A food pantry run from the back of the Catholic Church that also provided rent/utilities/medical/dental/ housing assistance. This was one of the ministries that Pat Robertson assisted. He never turned down a request.

Love INC ~ A World Vision community program. We enlisted nearly 30 churches and assessed volunteers from those congregations to provide any kind of assistance needed. The Church I pastored also provided space for the office.

Homeless Task Force ~ Kona had numerous homeless people and families. We acquired a piece of property and built temporary housing.

The Help Center ~ Provided help to teens and their families at the local high school.

The Pregnancy Center ~ Help for pregnant woman. Free ultra-sound. Support for single mothers.

Our congregation took 10% of monthly giving and gave it away to needs we were aware of in the community.

Personally I would recruit volunteers to help people moving. With most local people renting, stressful moves happened often. I also made sure that single mothers and widows had car and home repairs addressed. If I could not do it myself, I would assist in getting it done.

I ended up moving to Hawaii because a Minister asked me to come help him. At the time I was janitor and youth pastor in Rockford, IL. It was totally out of the blue, I had never even imagined doing such a thing.

We left our family and friends for 25 years. We would go into debt every 3 years to return and visit. I retired after pastoring the same Church for 20 years.

I hope that answers your judg... questions.

What does your gerbil do during this time? Stare at the bathroom door hoping he doesn't see a 'Trojan' labeled package exit there in your hands?
I don't own a gerbil. Dopey ad hominem. Get a real argument dummy.

You can back peddle all day long... taxes are recognition, it means the federal government recognizes them as married regardless if the state does or not.
so now there is no state where they cannot be recognized by the federal government.:)

...where in the Constitution does it specify Asians can own land?

Where in the Constitution does it make it known blacks can be left alone?
-Fact is those familiar with the Constitution recognize it was an instrument that put teeth behind the idea that ALL American citizens we are allowed a full set of liberties IDIOT.
Had it not been we would have held a vote in your no doubt shithole neighborhood and I'd bet my bottle top collection your neighbors would have voted you out leaving you with the areas of Siberia or North Korea to move to.
You're just some spoiled punk who has no idea of the makeup of our great nation.
