    In Portland there are four parishes that have marched in the Pride Parade for years.  Got new Archbishop this year - very conservative, very ambitious.  He told all four they could march as individuals (mighty big of him) but not as a parish.

    The pastor of St. Andrew consulted with the parish council - they voted to march anyway.  When he told the congregation they gave him a standing ovation.  St Andrew will march as a unit, with their rainbow flag tomorrow.  So will the other 3 parishes.

    Welcome to Oregon, Archbishop.  Things look different here.
