With the Special Session set for October 28, grassroots organizing against gay ‘marriage’ continues at the precinct and district level in communities statewide.

Nearly 1000 Attend Anti Gay Marriage Rally at Capitol

HNN: The special session on same-sex marriages is a little more than three weeks, away but the lobbying efforts are already in high gear.

More than 500 people (organizers say 1000) attended a rally the state Capitol today (Sun Oct 6) to oppose the legalization of same sex marriages. The rally was organized by the United Fellowship of Churches, which wants the issue decided at the ballot box and not by the state Legislature.

"We want to shoot it down. We want to bring it down," said Bishop Soara Tupua Jr. of the Holy Hill of Zion Thy Dwelling Place Church in Waianae.

"Let the people vote, let the people decide. Don't make it a special session and you decide for us. We want the people to say, this is what we want. That we have a say in the same-sex marriages."...

Many of those who attended today's event believe that most voters oppose same-sex marriages.

"I feel very strongly that the word marriage connotation between two people, a man and a woman," said Kathy Kane of East Honolulu.

Added Aiea resident Liz Chow: "I believe the people of Hawaii should be able to vote on the same sex marriage issue."

Lawmakers say the rally is just one of many to come on same-sex marriage debate -- a debate that's expected to heat up as the October 28th special session gets closer.

Lihue: Voices of all Hawaiians need to be heard on the upcoming special legislative session

KGI: Ofelia Serrano ... waved and held a sign as she stood along Kaumualii Highway Friday afternoon.

Her voice, and the voices of all Hawaiians, need to be heard on the upcoming special legislative session on marriage ... she said.

“When you talk loud, they hear you more, so here we are, speaking loud, saying what we believe,” Serrano said. “It’s important for our kids, our youth, to put a face on our faith and what we believe in. This is for the next generation. This is for their sake.”

About 20 people — including pastors, citizens and kids from various Kauai churches - rallied for two hours, holding signs and occasionally waving to passersby.

Their signs carried messages such as “Marriage Does Not Need Redefining,” “Yes to Traditional Marriage,” and “Hawaii Already Voted in 1998.” ... drivers honked and waved back....
