LET THE DISSENTING CATHOLICS ON STAFF SHOW THEMSELVES . . . AND THEN QUIT YOUR POST!…Nina Rhea

“The  issue  of  marriage  and  family  life  is  a  top  pastoral  priority  for  me,  and  I  would  like  the  work  that  is  done  here  at  the  Pastoral  Center  to  reflect  that.”…Archbishop Sample.

excerpt:

Portland Archbishop Alexander K. Sample told his pastoral staff last month that the Archdiocese of Portland and the Baker Diocese would join the coalition opposing the same-sex marriage initiative.

In a Feb. 12 memo, Sample directed his staff to “do whatever they can to help support this effort” and said that “it is my intention to commit the energies of the Church to help defeat this initiative and to uphold the uniqueness and sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman.”
