There is legislation in the works to put same-sex marriage on the Oregon agenda but no mention of opposition to this at all. Since the Archdiocese has long roots embedded in Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon and their member churches which include the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches (pro-homosexual activity) this doesn't surprise anyone. I don't believe any anti-abortion policies are reflected in any of the churches.
Our last lobbyist for Oregon Catholic Conference was Roger Martin. He apparently hasn't changed his pro-abortion position in the many years he represented the Archdiocese of Portland. We desperately need a change in so many positions.
Now the Office of Justice and Peace is again trying to look professional with this ad, when it is really just like the same old thing. But...let's pray this is the last time.
We used to have an Office of Marriage and Family life to balance things out.
