WHAT IT WOULD DO: Although state law limits marriage to one man and one woman, the Arizona Legislature—at the behest of the Christian-based Center for Arizona Policy—is asking voters to put the same limits in the Arizona Constitution.
SUPPORTERS SAY: Voters need to stop the militant homosexual activists from forcing their gay agenda on the state of Arizona to destroy the very meaning of marriage.
OPPONENTS SAY: Gay marriage is already illegal in Arizona, so why is a constitutional amendment necessary? Why shouldn’t two gay people be allowed to marry and get the same benefits as straight people? Why is the Center for Arizona Policy so preoccupied with gay people?
MAJOR FUNDING PROVIDED BY: No one yet; this proposition was placed on the ballot by the Arizona Legislature.
