Honolulu bishop calls same-sex marriage a 'manufactured civil right'

Following a special session of the Hawaii Legislature that for two weeks turned the state Capitol into high-spirited exhibition of populous democracy, Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Wednesday signed the bill causing all the commotion and made Hawaii the 15th state to legalize same-sex marriage.

Honolulu Bishop Larry Silva, who had vigorously opposed the legislation, called same-sex marriage a "manufactured civil right" that is "symptomatic of a profound misunderstanding of the purpose of human sexuality."
