Hawaii Police Union Prez: 'You Will Have To Kill Me' Before I Enforce Same-Sex Marriage Laws
Since it looks like marriage equality is on its way to passing in Hawaii, we're thinking Hawaii Police Union President Tenari Maafala better get ready to submit his resignation.
The President of the State of Hawaii Organization of Police Officers (pictured, right) says there's no way he'll enforce same-sex marriage laws.
"The day I retire and bills like this are introduced, I will never ever honor such law. You will have to kill me to disrespect and dishonor my father in heaven. You will have to kill me to impose these type of laws upon my children and my nieces and nephews."
Maafala said the state has more important issues to address, such as homelessness and drugs, and that denying gay couples the right to marry is not discrimination if it’s against your beliefs.
“I stand by my beliefs,” Maafala said.
Enjoy retirement, Maafala.
