Marriage equality is almost certainly coming to Hawaii. Zack Ford of Think Progress explains:

The Hawaii House has granted marriage equality its third and final passage with a vote of 30-19, as it had on Wednesday. The bill remains as it was amended in committee, which means it must return to Senate to passage before advancing to Gov. Neil Abercrombie (D), who is committed to signing it.

Though Wednesday’s passage foreshadowed easy passage again Friday, opponents of the bill again attempted to delay and obstruct the bill with numerous amendments, all of which failed.

According to the calculations of Bishop Tom Ely of Vermont, after Gov. Abercrombie signs the bill, 39.8 percent of Episcopalians will live in jurisdictions in which same-sex couples can marry.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
