Colette Machado, the chairwoman of the state Office of Hawaiian Affairs, has joined others in an advertisement opposing the special session of the state Legislature to consider gay marriage.

The ad, sponsored by a group called For the Sake of the Children, features Machado and others declaring that the Bible is the highest law in the land and that same-sex marriage will effect their traditional sense of ohana.

The special session, the group says, denies the people of Hawaii a chance to be heard. They urge people to contact the governor and state lawmakers and tell them to protect First Amendment rights.

    "The special session", is not a special session
    unless, again I repeat they are looking for special
    treatment. That is not equality to be treated special.

    And Native Hawaiians have done really since Biblical values were first brought to Hawaii, haven't they? Kind of like when the penalty for a commoner who permitted the shadow of an ali'i to be cast upon them was death.

    Missionaries came and preached. With their arrival
    they also brought disease.
    No different then and now.
    Learn the meaning of Mahu.
    Missionaries could not keep incest away, since
    royalty only married sisters or brothers in family.
    Same sex marriage will open the doors for such incests
    and petcests.
