  1. Vile stupid woman. It’s shocking that a transgender woman could be so homophobic.

  2. She isnt Transgender; she is Jewish.Twice divoced ; no kids.
    How can someone so ugly be homphobic!

  3. Clearly doesn’t know what she is taking about.
    Stupid moose.

  4. And she could have used exactly the same (non) proof to ban interracial marriages. Ignorant and unpleasant.

  5. How did a retard like this get to be Governor of Hawaii, she hasn’t a clue about human rights the poor, dim, ugly, bigoted creep. Backward retards like this should be forced to undergo an induction course in the basics of equality.

    “First cousins couldn’t marry, or a brother and a sister and that sort of thing.”

    That’s because they share similar genetic makeup you idiot and procreate mutated freak shows.

    How did this idiot ever get into a position of power.

    She is clearly thick.

  7. She must go stupid woman – boycott Hawaii

  8. I wonder why the church haven’t used that analogy? :D

  9. I think they have, Louise. Didn’t they go on about CPs saying that sisters might marry their sister? Yeah, that’s right – and allowing straight marriage means that sisters might marry their brothers *rolls eyes*

    Logic doesn’t get a look in with many fundies.

    Would the words ‘political suicide’ be helpful at this point in the conversation.

  11. She looks like the product of inter breading herself!

  12. The fight continues. Each rejection by the forces of evil (in this case Republican), ensures more determination, more funding/donating and the battle will be won! The full recognition of our relationships WILL be achieved. Country by country, state by state, by every surface of the planet, land or water!

  13. It just proves one should never assume those in power to be there becuase they are smart. This woman is an idiot – her reasoning that gay people should not have any civil rights becuase of incest is beyond even a rebuke, it stands alone as a testament to idiocy.

    “procreate mutated freak shows”

    What disgusting prejudice and bigotry. Whether we ‘approve’ of how a child comes into the world or not we have no right to label it in such a way. The child has done nothing wrong.

    As someone who labels themselves a Dr. I would have thought you would understand that any potential genetic problems are at a higher risk and not absolutes and that even if a child was born with a genetically induced problem it still would not be a “mutated freak show”.

  15. It’s shocking that such mentally backward people can reach such high office. The world seems to make ways for such uneducated morons to take charge. Lets hope this will also become a thing of the past. These people have nothing to do with believing in civil rights they clearly want to do anything to stop humanity progressing in anyway. Notice though it is Never at their expense!!

    Absolutely shameful!!

    Dave.

    Stop being so uptight.

    Close relatives that marry may have a common ancestor who had one mutation of the recessive disease, but did not get any disease because they did not have the second mutation. Changes are higher than both of these close relatively may have the same mutation, and thus be “genetic carriers” for the recessive disease. If they produce children, these children are much more likely to actually have the full symptomatic version of the recessive disease.

    PS. My PHD is in IT, hence my callous insensitivity.

    “How can someone so ugly be homophobic!” What the hell does that mean? What is this, face fascism? I would have thought that the whole of homophobia is ugly regardless of the body in which it is transported from one BNP or other, similar meeting, to another.

  18. First cousins can marry in Hawaii, as long as they are opposite-sex, that is. So this idiot didn’t even have the laws of her own state right.

  19. It will be interesting to hear how she justifies her idiotic remarks in court when the case comes up.

    Meanwhile she’s already managed two childless marriages and two divorces herself, she clearly considers herself to be a lot more equal than others.

  20. I’d be bitter too if I had a face like hers.

    Pavlos:

    she’s used up 2 other people’s marriage quota!

    She said she searched her heart and soul for months about this decision BS, this rabid republican knew from day one how she would vote. Here is a woman who once said that George Bush the second was the greatest of American presidents. Heart and soul? the woman has neither.
    We have been together for 54 years, and are still strangers before the law in our own country. SHAME Lingle.

  23. George and Ward – 54 years? congratulations, thats about 5400 years in gay years, almost an eternity. Screw what the authorities say, next year will be your emerald wedding anniversary.

  24. George Vye & Ward Stewart 14 Jul 2010, 11:15pm

    Thanks for that Jay.
    I think at the top of this page you referred to her as vile and stupid. Vile yes, stupid no. She knows exactly what she is doing.
    She wanted the Sarah Palin crown, and was in the running for it. Now she is seeking Michael Steele’s job, and is being considered for that when it comes up. She’s a calculating canny wench.

    BTW, looking forward to a basket of emeralds!

    I guess I don’t understand what the photo of Mrs. Doubtfire has to do with this article about another stupid Republican. Where in hell do they find these stupid women?

  26. All you people should read the article, instead of just the headline. “….not to put it in the exact same category….” Obviously not saying gays and lesbians commit incest. Also, since gay marriage aka ‘civil union’ is a big issue, she thought it was “so important it should be decided by the people”. So in conclusion, read the article before you respond so angrily. If you feel so passionately about the issue, you should contribute to the argument instead of just name calling.

    I don’t care how this stupid debate ends up, just decide it once and for all. In my opinion, consensual homosexuality, incest and polygamy between consenting adults are all in the same group. It’s all a matter of “morality.” The question we need to be asking are: Should we be legislating morality? Who decides what is moral? Can morality change over time? And in this specific instance, Can we legislate restrictions on marriage between any grouping on consenting adults or not?

  28. Once again I say: There is no cure for stupidity.
