USA, Hawaii: Far Right Christians Attempting Citizens’ Filibuster of Marriage Equality Bill

Written by scott on November 4th, 2013

HawaiiWe suspected this, and now it’s official – “Christians” in Hawaii are attempting to talk the marriage equality bill to death.

Towleroad reports:

Public testimony continued in the Hawaii House until 11:00 p.m. Saturday night. The hearing will resume on Monday, November 4, at 11:00 a.m. in the Capitol Auditorium. Monday’s hearing will continue to be broadcast live by Capitol TV and on Olelo Channel 53. Religious groups opposed to marriage equality are attempting a “citizens filibuster,” similar to what pro-choice advocates attempted in the state of Texas earlier this year: thousands have signed up to testify in an attempt to run out the clock by talking the bill to death in the time scheduled for the Special Session.

Testimony will resume today in the House. One of our commenters who’s been on the scene thinks they may finish with citizen testimony by tomorrow.
