Hawaii Governor Compares Gay Marriage to Incest
In announcing her decision to veto a civil unions bill approved by lawmakers, Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle insisted she had treated supporters of a civil unions bill with "respect and dignity." But in her first interview since that announcement, Lingle likened gay marriage to an incestuous relationship.

Saying the legislation had "touched the hearts and minds of our citizens as no other social issue of our day," Lingle sounded concerned about how the bill would affect all the people of Hawaii.

...

"For those people who want to make this into a civil rights issue, and of course those in favor of the bill, they see it as a civil rights issue," she said. "And I understand them drawing that conclusion. But people on the other side would point out, well, we don't allow other people to marry even it's not a civil right for them. First cousins couldn't marry, or a brother and a sister and that sort of thing."
