A few weeks ago, I was asked to do an interview for the Archdiocese of Seattle with a local NPR reporter on Referendum 74.
The story has aired Nationally, and the reporter erroneously said that I was “sitting on the fence” about whether or not to allow the referendums in our parish. I stated repeatedly that I was behind everyone else’s response because of my trip to Rome and a retreat weekend in May. I wanted to make sure that I was at all of the Masses to address the issue. That’s hardly sitting on the fence.
The story spent most of its time and energy on people who didn’t want the referendum and disagreed with the Archbishop. Why am I not surprised??
