The Arkansas Marriage Amendment

(Ballot Title)

AN AMENDMENT TO THE ARKANSAS CONSTITUTION TO RECOGNIZE MARRIAGE AS A UNION BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF SEX. NO MEMBER OF ANY CLERGY OR RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION SHALL BE OBLIGATED TO PROVIDE WEDDING CEREMONIES OR PARTICIPATE IN THE SOLEMNIZATION OF ANY MARRIAGE. REFUSAL BY CLERGY OR RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS TO PARTICIPATE SHALL NOT CREATE ANY CIVIL CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION. THIS PROPOSED AMENDMENT WOULD RESULT IN THE REPEAL OF AMENDMENT 83 OF THE ARKANSAS CONSTITUTION, REQUIRE STATE OFFICIALS TO ISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSES AND PROVIDE PROTECTION TO RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS AND CLERGY FROM ANY LEGAL REQUIREMENT TO PARTICIPATE IN MARRIAGE CEREMONIES.

REALLY bad article....

"Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has rejected the wording of two ballot measures that would legalize same-sex marriage in the state.........McDaniel last month certified the wording of a ballot measure that would repeal that amendment."

So which is it?? Did he reject it or certify it? Are there three ballot measures? One certified, two rejected? WTF??
