Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has again rejected a pro-gay marriage group's proposed ballot measure that if approved would repeal the state's marriage amendment.
In 2004, Arkansas voters approved Amendment 83, known as the Arkansas Marriage Amendment, by a margin of 75 percent to 25 percent.
One of several similar amendments passed throughout the United States in 2004, Arkansas' marriage amendment was championed and sponsored by the Arkansas Family Council.
Jerry Cox, director of the AFC, told The Christian Post that in rejecting the ballot initiative he believed McDaniel "is simply doing his job."
Cox also told CP that he felt that even if the ballot initiative were to make it onto the ballot and be voted on, the people of Arkansas would still reject it.
"A pro-homosexual group here in Arkansas conducted a poll about six weeks ago and in their poll, it indicated that the Arkansas Marriage Amendment would still pass," said Cox.

He should have let them run it, and lose again. A resounding rejection.
Well,being from Massachusetts,where we were denied a chance to put the question of gay “marriage” on the ballot so we could have voted AGAINST it way back in 2007,I enjoy seeing the gays getting a taste of their own medicine!
