USA, Oregon: State Supreme Court Upholds AG’s Ballot Title for Anti Gay Initiative

Oregon Gay MarriageAn anti gay group pushing one of those “right to discriminate” bills lost their battle over the initiative title today.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

Without comment, the court upheld a ballot title drafted by the Attorney General’s office that sponsors of the initiative had complained used “politically charged” wording that would bias voters against the measure, reports The Oregonian. Ballot titles are regarded as one of the most important parts of an initiative campaign because they appear on the ballot right above where voters mark either their “yes” or “no” vote. The certified ballot title contains the language: “Religious belief” exceptions to anti-discrimination laws for refusing services, other, for same-sex ceremonies, “arrangements.”

It’s a victory, but a bigger one would be to keep it off the ballot altogether.
