Abercrombie's statement on passage of SB1

LAST UPDATED: 02:42 p.m. HST, Nov 12, 2013

Gov. Neil Abercrombie's statement after the state Senate voted today to pass SB1 HD1 relating to marriage equality rights:

"In Hawaii, we believe in fairness, justice and human equality.  We embrace the Aloha spirit and respect one another. Today, we celebrate our diversity defining us rather than dividing us.

"I believe this bill provides equal rights for all people, is legally sound, and is in accord with the Hawaii State Constitution.  

"I look forward to signing this significant piece of legislation, which provides marriage equity and fully recognizes and protects religious freedoms."

Where on earth has Neil been hiding the past two weeks? "Today, we celebrate our diversity defining us rather than dividing us" is he serious? We are more divided now than we have ever been in this states history.
