FRC Cheers Hawaii On Marriage
"It looks like the Department of Health and Hawaii Family Forum have the upper hand. A lot of the credit for that goes to our friends at ADF, who defended the Forum--and traditional marriage--in court. No doubt their arguments helped shape Judge Kay's opinion, which powerfully outlines the importance of man-woman marriage to civilization. 'It is not beyond rational speculation to conclude that fundamentally altering the definition of marriage to include same-sex unions might result in undermining the societal understanding of the link between marriage, procreation, and family structure,' Judge Kay wrote. 'Because Hawaii's marriage laws are rationally related to legitimate government interests they do not violate the federal Constitution.' Gov. Abercrombie followed up the opinion with one of his own. Despite his state's support for traditional marriage, he vowed to fight on. I suppose when you're already the least popular Governor in America, you have nothing to lose." - FRC head Tony Perkins via press release.
