Still deciding how to vote on Oregon ballot measures? Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO), the state-wide council of churches and faith-based organizations, has produced their annual Voter's Guide to Ballot Measures for the 2014 elections.
What you'll read are the careful theological reflections of Christian leaders trying to discern how the different measures before Oregon voters will impact the common good. Candidates are not ranked or endorsed.
On some issues, EMO makes no recommendations either because the measures do not warrant input from the faith community or because the member bodies of EMO were not able to come to consensus.
You won't be reading a partisan document - like the voter guides published by the Oregon Family Council, a purely political organization complete with a PAC that donates 100% of their funds to GOP candidates all while claiming to be a church council - or a document that insists you must vote with EMO's recommendations to be a good Christian.
I generally agree with the recommendations made by EMO (though I have endorsed Measure 91) and commend these recommendations to you.
