Hawaii Done Deal
Moments ago, Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed same-sex marriage into law in Honolulu.
Sure, sure, the anti-forces — anti-gay/anti-equality — will make a stab at getting a court to stay the Dec. 2nd start date of marriages. Just as certain, there must be plug nasties ready to start a drive for a new constitutional amendment with the sole intent of reversing it. I don't see either of those happening.
Much more likely, the anti-LGBT sorts will be reduced has they have here in MA. They'll be a dwindling party of bitter types, fewer each month, each year. As the state sees the lies about disaster that heard a decade ago, people will know (almost to a one) that SSM helps many, harms no one, and is, as the Hawaiians call it, pono.
We can hope for a quick healing of the hearts and a resetting of the minds of those who would harm, hinder and hurt homosexuals.
