Catholic diocese parts ways with the Maine Council of Churches 

[Will other dioceses follow suit and quit state and local Councils of Churches for the same reason?  The USCCCP has yet to join the National Council of Church, nor the Holy See the World Council of Churches, despite both entities schmoozing with them! – AQ Tom]

Editor’s Note: Bishop Robert Deeley of Portland cited the ecumenical body’s decision to adopt positions by majority (rather than unanimous) vote. Thus, “our continuing participation could result in me advocating for two different, and even contradictory, positions [such as LGBTQUEER issues],”  the bishop wrote. “What I advocate for cannot be simply determined by a majority vote.”
