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.
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.”
