Man leading current fight against #HI4M once admitted he wants to 'discourage' homosexuality

by Jeremy Hooper

These days, you're less likely to hear James Hochberg, the man heading up the current fight against Hawaii marriage equality, admit that he thinks homosexuality is like drug addiction. But that wasn't the case back in 1993, when people like him felt a little more comfortable with the whole homo-hostility thing.

Here is the same Hochberg, as quoted by the July '93 edition of ABA Journal:

201310282114
[ABA Journal, July 1993]

There's a Hawaii marriage hearing going on as I write this. Let's hear it, Mr. Hochberg. Tell the legislature that you think gays are like drug addicts. I dare you!!

Pagebreak-350

**He also falsely told The New York Times, in a 1995 interview, that many psychologists classify homosexuality as an "emotional disturbance."

This is NOM's point man in The Aloha State. Yikes!
