In Arkansas Lt. Governor's Race, GOP Contender Questions Opponent's Values
By Jim Brown September 14, 2006

(AgapePress) - The Republican candidate for the second-highest executive office in Arkansas says his Democratic opponent is hedging on the issues of same-sex "marriage" and homosexual adoption.

Democratic candidate for Arkansas lieutenant governor Bill Halter and State Party Chair Jason Willett have both said they oppose homosexual marriage and favor a ban against homosexual adoptions. But less than three weeks ago, the Arkansas Democratic Party eliminated language from its platform that affirmed marriage is between one man and one woman.

Now, Halter's opponent, State Senator Jim Holt, is asking the former Clinton administration official whether he supports the revised platform and the national Democratic Party's five-point plan to fight ballot measures banning homosexual marriage. Holt feels his political rival's position on these two issues may not be in synch with the will of the people of Arkansas. ...

Nor did Halter ever comment on whether the Arkansas Democratic Party was wrong to remove the traditional marriage plank from its platform, the Republican candidate notes. He says Halter "has never answered either one of these questions, and when we try to talk about it, the press will not report it."

Halter's latest equivocations on the issue of homosexual marriage do not mark the first time the Democrat politician's commitment to traditional family values has been called into question. During the Democratic primary, opponent Tim Woolridge accused Halter of profiting from pornography and online gambling because he sits on the board of a company that has done business with pornographic websites.
