Marriage Equality Group Talks Plan To Repeal Amendment 83

An Arkansas marriage equality group gives more insight on its plan to repeal Amendment 83, which bans same sex marriage.
(KARK) LITTLE ROCK, AR -- An Arkansas marriage equality group gives more insight on its plan to repeal Amendment 83, which bans same sex marriage.

Arkansans for Equality submitted a ballot title to the Attorney General allowing voters to decide whether to repeal the amendment.

On Thursday, AG Dustin McDaniel approved the ballot title for Arkansans for Equality after being rejected twice.

The group must now collect 78,000 signatures before the measure appears on the ballot allowing voters to decide.

Arkansans for Equality co-founder Judd Mann wants every person to marry freely.

"We are wanting amendment 83 to be abolished," said Mann.

But Family Council President Jerry Cox says, "Recent polling shows the majority of arkansans still support the ban on same-sex marriage, I don't think this measure will be successful."

Mann argues getting rid of amendment 83 is the best thing to do.

"I'm a high school teacher, I'm the biological father of three children, and I'm a gay man. I want all my children to have equality I didn't have much of my life," said Mann.
