Hawaiian Governor Vetoes Same-Sex Civil Union Bill

Governor Linda Lingle of Hawaii has vetoed a bill that would have permitted same-sex civil unions.  Why is it so hard for some people to understand that two people can love each other?  Even if they are the same gender?  What is the threat to the institution of marriage?  Last I heard, the divorce rate among heterosexual marriages is something like 50% for first marriages and even higher for second marriages.  How can something that no longer exists be threatened?

Does "til death do us part" have any real meaning anymore?  Even among the failthful, the rate of divorce is still over 25% for those that attend church several times a week.  Exactly what institution are you still trying to defend?

If God is so perfect, you'd think it could get the balance of hormones right in the womb.  I sure hope that in 15 or 20 years, we look back at this time and shake our heads at how silly it all was to believe this way.  I sure hope that it doesn't take 15 or 20 years to understand that human beings are human beings regardless of your sexual orientation and that human rights apply to all humans.
