The Hawaii House of Representatives is set to vote today on legislation that would bring marriage equality to the state. The House voted 30-18 on Wednesday to advance the legislation, which would need to be passed again by the Senate. The vote follows several days of debate, which included testimony from Hawaii residents and lawmakers. Rep. Kaniela Ing, a self-described Christian conservative, at one point said that LGBT people "are the way they are. Shouldn't we allow them to love whom they love?"
