Testimony Ends: House to Consider Amendments to SB1 Tonight
By News Release @ 8:38 PM :: 4773 Views :: Family, First Amendment

Message to Supporters from Hawaii Family Advocates   November 5, 2013

We are so proud of you and the thousands of people in the community who took time out of their busy schedules to make their voices heard at our state capitol.  Several sources report that this outpouring is UNPRECEDENTED in the State of Hawaii.

The rally last week was simply phenomenal — a reported 10,000 people attended from Oahu to the Big Island!  What makes that so amazing is that over 5 thousand people signed up to submit oral testimony and some news reports show that over 10 thousand people submitted online comments.  We simply cannot allow this energy to wane.

Please contact your state House Representative to let him or her know to vote against SB 1 and oppose redefining marriage.

The latest report is that the House is considering amending the legislation to put in place enhanced religious liberty protections.  Tonight at 6:00 p.m. the full House has scheduled a 2nd reading on the bill.  From there, it will be placed on the calendar for third reading.  With 48 hours notice, that may mean on Thursday.  

CLICK HERE to check the capitol website for current information.

That means we need you to be at the capitol WEARING YOUR DARK BLUE shirts.  Try to be at the capitol as often as you can this week to show the legislators that the community is, in fact, paying attention.

Many experts testified that  people of faith may well be punished for promoting marriage between one man and one woman.  People who were at the capitol reported being labeled a bigot and a hater.  Although supporters tried to deny it, educators testified that school children will be taught that they have the choice of marrying anyone regardless of sex, even if that teaching squarely conflicts with what the child is taught at home or in church.

The only way to avoid the inevitable clash and impairment of civil rights is to reject redefining marriage.

Please act today — use this link to send an urgent message to your representative about this very important issue.

And even if you've already called your legislator, call again to remind him or her that you remain strongly opposed to SB 1 and the redefinition of marriage.  And after you have taken a minute or two to contact your legislators, please take just a moment more to forward this message to your family and friends so they can do the same.  VISIT OUR WEBSITE for updates and more information.

Sincerely yours,

Jim Hochberg

President, Hawaii Family Advocates
