Teresa Harke with "Friends of Religious Freedom" says they are trying to allow people with deeply held religious beliefs protection from doing something they don't want to do.

 

"How does someone opt out of same sex ceremonies without facing bullying and backlash and fines from the state?   We need to have religious protection from our first amendment rights -- to be able to say based on my personal beliefs, I don't want to participate in this particular event."

 

The Project Religious Freedom Initiative hasn't started to collect signatures yet, to put the issue on the November ballot.

 

This effort sprung up following an incident last year in Gresham -- where a bakery is now facing legal troubles after refusing to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple.
