Hawaii's Governor Tsk Tsk Tsk

Seriously Governor Lingle, what are you saying? Same-sex civil unions are the same as same-sex marriage, just a different name?

"And the No. 1 reason civil union is substantively different than marriage: The word "marriage" is the gateway to the 1,138 federal protections afforded married couples. Without that word, same-sex couples in civil unions have no claim for those legal protections. If the marriage exclusion were abolished, same-sex married couples would have a stronger standing - both legal and political - to challenge the federal discrimination."

Ayres, Ian;

We are still having to jump the broomstick people!
