HILO, Hawaii – A group of East Hawaii’s spiritual leaders gathered at the Hilo YMCA on Thursday, to discuss their strategic approach to the ongoing special legislative session at the state Capitol, where lawmakers are on the verge of passing a bill that they stand opposed to; the same sex marriage law.
The faith-based leaders also had a message to share with media. Sheldon Lacsina with New Hope Hilo, Hawaii made a statement to the press after conferring with other local church leaders.
A list entilted “Conflicts between Religious Liberty and Same-sex Marriage” was provided to Big Island Video News by local church leaders.
Allthough most of the action has been on Oahu the last two weeks, there have been sign wavings on Hawaii Island. We covered one held in Hilo before the special session began, organized by folks in support of SB1.
