    When Oregon’s DOJ decided that marriage equality would be extended to recognize marriages performed out of state, there wasn’t even a ripple of right wing fundagelical protest that has surprised many of us. I mean not a peep of protest. One has to wonder what is going on and why the christianists are laying low.

    Paul, My guess is they know they are goingto lose. We haven’t heard a peep from the Christianists in Hawaii about a move to overturn the legislature, and probably for the same reasons.

    Paul,

    The largest denominations in Oregon are Catholic, Mormon, and ELCA (Lutheran).

    Of those, the Lutherans perform same-sex marriages, the lay Catholics (especially in a liberal state like Oregon) are majority supporters, and the Mormon are keeping their head down as much as possible on the issue these days.

    Good for them. However, I am not buying a product just because the company is pro-gay.

    OR should be an easy victory. If not, our side is in trouble.

    Better late than never. Back in 2004, Nike remained neutral over the Oregon anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment that it now wants to repeal.

    Also, don’t forget that Columbia Sportswear and Adidas, and Oregon’s largest private employer Intel announced their support of Oregon gay marriage last month.
