Seeking to support a campaign to restore the definition of marriage to a union only between a man and a woman, the Catholic Diocese of Portland asked parishioners to donate to the campaign in a second collection on Sunday.
Officials said the donations will help pay for television ads aiming to overturn a state law legislators passed last spring recognizing same-sex unions as “marriages,” ABC affiliate WMTW News 8 reports.
Parishioner Jane Roy said she hoped marriage can go back to “the tradition as it was.”
“Marriage should be between a man and a woman, at least in the state that I live in.”
