Never mind this was not "marriage" but civil unions. It is not and never was about marriage, but about any recognition of gay people.
Anyway, from the Honolulu Star-Advertiser's coverage
Opponents of civil unions celebrated Lingle's veto but recognized that the community appears divided.That is the single most stupid comment any of the anti-gay side has ever uttered.
"We feel the stress in this community, and that's not our objective at all," said Francis Oda, chairman of the Hawaii Family Forum. "What we want to do is create unity in this community."
How can there be unity with someone who denies my essential humanity and civil rights, who wants my family to be second class, my relationship permanently illegal and unprotected?
Seriously, what can this man be thinking? He has reached into the homes of his fellow citizens and done his best to rent them asunder and thinks there is a possibility for "unity"?
