Here is Bishop Sample's answers to questions put to him by the Oregonian. We need to step up our prayers for his discernment because, in my opinion, there will be pressure put on him by the liberal guard in the Pastoral Center.
For example, when I was speaking to Todd Cooper, Archbishop Vlazny's 'Special Projects' man regarding my questions as Director of Catholics for McCain/Palin in Oregon, he said that that "things are different in Portland", when referring to Rome as a guideline for Catholic votes. Well, yes things are different in Portland, but our church is Catholic Mr. Cooper. Roman Catholic not Portland Catholic.
