The Arkansas Initiative for Marriage Equality (AIME) will start collecting signatures for The Arkansas Same-Sex Marriage Amendment (ASSMA) on Saturday (Jan. 18).

Supporters will start collecting the signatures on the steps of the Arkansas State Capitol, in Little Rock.

Officials said AIME will have to collect signatures from 10 percent of the number of voters in the next gubernatorial race for the state of Arkansas (2014), and supporters must also collect 5 percent of the number of voters in 15 different counties from around the state by the middle of 2016, in order to be placed on the ballot for that year.

    This story reminds me of the young preacher I once listened to. His sermon was on “Halloween, the Devil’s Holiday”. He raged and raged about anyone who would celebrate on this day was in jeopardy of burning in H*** forever and ever. Several years later one of his grandchildren was born on Halloween….oops. There is a valuable lesson to be learned. You never know when you will want to take back your words about an issue

    There is no good reason to deny that we must keep evolving until an adult, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, monogamy or polyamory, race, or religion is free to marry any and all consenting adults. The limited same-gender freedom to marry is a great and historic step, but is NOT full marriage equality, because equality “just for some” is not equality. Let’s stand up for EVERY ADULT’S right to marry the person(s) they love. Get on the right side of history!
