Nation spotlight: Oregon judge on marriage

courtNation spotlight on Oregon ‘marriage’ judge
By Faith News Note:

The story of the Oregon judge, Vance Day, has gone beyond state headlines into national media attention with the story being picked up on CBS News, New York Daily News, Newsmax, The Examiner and more. Marion County Circuit Court Judge Vance Day has stopped performing all weddings — an option given to county circuit judges. Judge Vance Day through a spokesman said he does not wish to feel compelled to approve same-sex marriages which are against his personal beliefs. There is currently an investigation by the Commission on Judicial Fitness and Disability that deals with the issue of screening marriage candidates as well as other complaints (details). Vance has created a legal fund to help with any expenses that might arise.   The events are magnified in light of other national cases involving the role and responsibilities of businesses and public officials in handling same-sex marriage requests by the public.

Below is KGW-TV reporting on the event.
