The only reason queers want to marry is to have one of their conspirator team legally dismissed from having to testify against the illegal activities common to their partners. The incredible increase in illegal drug activity in Hawaii is completely due to queers, their use personally and their use of drugs to molest young men and adolescents.

I'm sure your comment will have its admirers. Some of them might even walk upright occasionally.

If there is any justice, you will be the first to go.

We actually are laid back with the live and let live way of life. But that is changing rapidly. Gay marriage is the least of our worries at the present time. Most anti-gay comments on this forum are from transplanted mainlanders or just mainlanders. The only thing I am for is not getting involved in this gay marriage mess. You have to remember Hawaii's #1 industry is tourism so if we get gays marrying each other our politicians see only dollar signs. Crazy thing about tourism is once you are known to be anti-gay you get labeled anti-everything. This Catch 22 situation is what happens when you let lawmakers decide(1996 law) something attached to the good old American dollar. Hawaii is known for its A-L-O-H-A(love you) style personality so I guess by passing this law those revenue dollar signs will happen.

This travesty by our Island blind & deaf representatives and nome of a Governor has polarized the 90%plus Religous/Moral anti-gay marriage majority even stronger and in effect made the gay agenda look worst and and even more immoral than it started. I think by next election time these Obama Democrackpots will be voted out. Remember Goverment for the people and by the people, well you got your Gay marriage law passed by circumventing that and in a sense by goverment that dont gives a rats what the majority thinks. Passed during the tenure of the most anti-Christian and failed President ever. the 90%+ will always look upon Gay as a sin and an abomination against God's Law where it matters.

Well your Aloha spirit wasn't displayed much during the circus which was the House hearings.

Sounded more like a whole lot of hate, especially from the natives.

oh, you mean sorta like the when segregation was made illegal.....or when birth control was made legal and had to made available to all people via a scotus ruling.... or when scotus ruled on interracial marriages.... or when scotus said that sex discrimination was illegal...or any number of things we take for granted now that went against people's ideas of right and wrong back when scotus made the ruling.

Dude I was asked for a local opinion for which many locals would agree. You are adding this "HATE" clause to my statement. Why should I go down to the hearings? I have been married for 45 years and have better activities to do. Why should I make a anti-gay azzhole out of myself? I could care less if gay people get married. I say live and let live and most locals here don't really care one way or the other . Those protesters are mainly transplanted mainlanders that have dogged our daily lives on every important issue. Screw them I prefer to mind my on business.

You are right my brother since the time of Christ's Crucifixion, corrupt self governed jewish leaders and Pontis Pilate to our corrupt self-interest Legislature and our current Governor holding this bogus special session washing his hands of the blatant disregard for what the majority standed for.
As Christ said Christ and those who follow him rule NOT in this world.

Things have changed a LOT in 17 years.
And they changed the constitution to allow the LEGISLATURE to define marriage.
That's what the legislature just did.
One thing that haven't changed, you're still queer.

Wait 'til you see two butt-ugly dudes making out as they walk by you and your children on the sidewalk. That will cure you.

No more so than seeing two butt-ugly opposite sex people make out.

Which is why I support only allowing us good looking people out in public.

Deperately trying to save sinking tourist revenue. A train wreck is more likely or worse yet negative effects.
