Anti-Gay Advocates Face Mondat Deadline for Bigoted Ballot Measure TO Bar Gays From Adopting In Arkansas

Boxes and boxes of signatures will be delivered to the Secretary of State Monday as the Family Council’s Action Committee tries to change the state adoption law. Just three weeks ago the group had only 45 thousand names on a petiton to ban unmarried couples from adopting or fostering kids. And they still needed at least 17 thousand more.
Now Jerry Cox says his group is confident about getting on the ballot. “We may not have enough once they’re all checked to qualify for the ballot. So again we’ll have to do a supplemental filing and after that we’ll have enough.”
Gay activists have attacked this measure since it could keep kids out of loving homes that are available to them under current law. Jerry Cox says his group’s made no secret of the fact that they don’t believe children should be placed in homosexual households. Source.
