I'll bet if the legislature had to pay gay couples reparations for loss of benefits from waiting until next year; they would change the words 'civil union' to 'marriage' before dinner today!

Yet another demonstration of the cowardice of our legislators.

The good news is the Governor can still call a special session. While the legislature may not have the 2/3rd votes to call a special session, they almost certainly have the votes needed to pass a marriage equality bill, which is exactly why the anti-gays won't vote for calling the special session.

If Hawaii's selective government refuses to provide equal governmental services to gay people; then they should forfeit the right
Perhaps we would be better off telling their sorry homophobic a$$es to go to [email protected] and form our own government in Hawaii
