Hawai’i to consider ban on shatnez

A mixed marriage.

Following on her reluctance to sign a bill which the Hawai’i legislature passed to permit civil unions for same-sex couples, Gov. Linda Lingle (R), not to be confused with the  Lingle of the famous LINGLE VCHEVRON U.S. A. INC. (04-163) 544 U.S. 528 (2005) 363 F.3d 846, case,  has announced that she has consulted with several local rabbis for a loophole to evade any commitment.

One of them, R. Velvel Schneerson, of the Lubavitch sect, suggested that to honor the Jewish community she also tack on a rider to the bill to ban shatnez thus making Hawai’i the first state to do so.

Shatnez is a combination of wool and linen which is prohibited in the Old Testament. The governor asked if this would include polyester which she favors in her garments. When told that she could continue to order her clothing from K-Mart, she said that she would consider the shatnez ban.
