Hawaii Christian Coalition Helps Stop Gay Marriage in Hawaii

Good news from the battle to defend traditional marriage.  This time it comes from Hawaii, where Republican Governor Linda Lingle has finally decided to veto the same-sex civil unions bill that was passed by that state's legislature this past April.  Garrett Hashimito, our Hawaii State Chairman of the Christian Coalition, has been heading up hundreds of grassroots in this effort.  The Hawaii Christian Coalition was given the credit by the local papers and media.  Garrett and his staff have done an excellent job with this veto and stopping gay marriage in Hawaii.

It's another big win in another typically "blue" state, which is a big blow to liberals who have been reeling from defeats in California and Maine over the past few years (which also tend to be "blue" states).

The bill would have given all of the same rights and benefits of traditional marriage to homosexual couples, with the only difference being the term "civil union" instead of "marriage.  This has been the political route taken by those pushing for full gay marriage in cases where they didn't think they could go that far right away, which again, makes it a big defeat.
