Fratricide is Religious; don't f**k with my religion!

Anti-Travel Ban Lawyer Leans on Argument that Honor Killings Are Islamic:
The lawyer representing the State of Hawaii in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit today has stated the collection of data with regards honor killings should be removed from President Trump’s Executive Order in order to “pass constitutional muster”.
In other words, it's okay to kill your sister if she acts in a manner which contravenes the strict interpretation of your shared religion?   Is that the tenet?

And if some person calls on the Constitution to justify murder because he claims it is a religious tenet
 .. that should be considered acceptable?

That is the most despicable thing I have ever heard.

The Constitution is the one thing which should never be used to justify immoral acts.

And this thing ... "honor killings" of a family member ... is the most immoral act possible.

That is not America, and anyone who leans on the Constitution to justify despicable immorality is the most horrible person imaginable.   They should NOT consider themselves part of America.

HA is not part of the USA, either geographically or culturally. The State allows and ENCOURAGES racial discrimination against whites, or "haoles". When I was there in '94, deployed with the Oregon Air National Guard for two weeks with the Hawaii Air National Guard, officers BOASTED that the HA'ANG was 95% native Hawaiians, and they planned to keep it that way.

The Second Amendment doesn't exist there. HA gun laws are as capricious and exclusionary as Cook County, IL. The USA should just dump Hawaii back to sub-State status. BTW, there is a plan afoot there to make a Hawaii King again, and not just ceremonially, either, that King would control the State government.

Not really USA material, are they?

Got to agree with the previous poster. I was stationed in Hawaii for three years and learned to loath the racism and anti-haole, anti-mainlander prejudice. Plus their state government is weird.

Deployed there a number of times in the 70's. Agree with all above. In addition Honolulu has become a tourist slum.
