In the opening scenes of the 4-minute video produced by Oregon United For Marriage, Paul Rummell and Ben West sit side by side on a couch in their home. Paul says he grew up in a “very traditional Catholic family.” “[A]nd not very hospitable toward gays, for sure,” he says with a frown. “I grew up in North Portland,” says Ben. “And I grew up in a very evangelical conservative fundamentalist home.”

Oregon United for Marriage is busily collecting signatures to put the issue before voters in November, 2014.
