Marriage passed the Hawai'i house 30-19, now back to the Senate for a pro forma approval and then let the weddings begin! The people sing outside. NOte, however, that the opponents were vocal, outraged, and said some of the most vicious and vile things in their testimony, turning neighbor against neighbor. Can you imagine how it felt to be a gay person listening to that?
Hawai'i also has the distinction of having an openly gay lawmaker vote against marriage equality to "protect religious freedom". Wow. Talk about drinking the koolaid.
