With Gov. Abercrombie preparing to sign the Civil Unions Bill on Wednesday, we asked our readers to share their opinions on civil unions. About 75% of the comments and emails were in favor of civil unions. Here are a few of the responses:
Sue: “Against civil unions because marriage should be between a man and a woman.”
James: “Marriage existed long before Christianity did. Marriage is not unique to Christianity. Therefore we should not allow Christianity to hijack the institution of marriage.”
Jen: “Marry whom every you want, as long as they are humans! Aren’t there more important things to fight about…like our country’s debt?”
We thank everyone for sending us their opinon on the issue. Please keep them coming as we encourage dialogue on every subject. In case you were wondering, the signing ceremony will be live streaming on the governor’s site.
