    The law is already on the books. A Catholic Church in Hawaii, if it wants to make money on weddings by renting out the facilities to non-members of the congregation (in other words, run a wedding business) can't refuse a marriage involving a previously divorced person, and so on.

    The marriage equality law would simply be adding another entry on the list of couples that Hawaii recognizes as legally able to get married that churches are already required to respect if they want to run a wedding business.
