Gay Legislator Says No To Gay Lobby-- Gets Hate Mail and Threats from Gays?!
After actually listening to the points the speakers made, State Representative Jo Jordan voted "No." Jordan became the first openly gay legislator to vote against a gay marriage law.
Although everyone knew the outcome was a foregone conclusion that would see the Gays winning the day, the hearings and subsequent final vote produced an unexpected result. After actually listening to the points the speakers made, State Representative Jo Jordan voted "No."
While Hawaii is a super stronghold of liberalism, a stray "No" vote on an issue like this is not surprising unless it comes from an open lesbian.
Christian groups politely thanked Jordan "It was the people of her own LGBT community that unleashed a torrent of bile and hatred toward her which "took her aback." "
The attacks opened Jordan's eyes. She reports having thought, "Wow, so much for minorities that have been suppressed."
