Cross your fingers for Hawaii!

Hawaii is one step closer to being a gay friendly state as the House of Representatives voted in favor of Civil Unions.  The bill has yet to be signed into action by Governor Linda Lingle, a die hard Republican who is pretty against the action.  However, I think that she should take into consideration the voices of the people and not simply her own whims.  Not only would it put an end to part of the Hawaiian fight for equality that has been going on since the early 1990’s but it would also make Hawaii the 6th state to grant these rights to same sex couples and can you spell economic boom! I don’t know what Governor Lingle is thinking but it would be in the best interest of Hawaii to:

A) Be seen as a progressive open minded state and

B) It would be a huge boost to their economy if she were to sign this through being that Hawaii is already a popular honeymoon spot what better place to elope to!?

I don’t want to sound too much like an ass but if Lingle had a brain in her head, she would do what is best for her state…

    I agree the more friendly states the better. People should be allowed to be happy and for someone to say what they want is wrong then they are idiots. so good luck to all of those who want to be happy, May you find it.

    You and me both Linda! That is how I think it should be too, there should be no room for inequality in a country that prides itself on being so diverse! Not to mention who really wants to go to Vermont or Massachusetts for a civil union/marriage Hawaii would be so nice! I know I am crossing my fingers that it passes because I want to go!

    I am praying that Hawaii’s Govenor passes the bill. I am hoping that all states will get their stuff together and make it legal for everyone to be married, no matter what sex. I believe in equality for everyone no matter sex, religion, race.
