Said White House spokesman Shin Inouye to the Star Advertiser:

"While the president does not weigh in on every measure being considered by state legislatures, he believes in treating everyone fairly and equally, with dignity and respect. As he has said, his personal view is that it's wrong to prevent couples who are in loving, committed relationships, and want to marry, from doing so. The president would welcome a decision by the state Legislature to treat all Hawaii couples equally."

  1. It is amazing that these states still have the mentality that God's laws trump Federal laws.
    The Supreme Court has long decided that :
    "state laws that conflict with federal law are without effect" Same go for those anti-sodomy laws which are still on the books but cannot be enforced.
