CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Alexander Sample of Portland, Oregon has protested restrictions on religious worship, noting that they are tighter than emergency restrictions on restaurants and gyms. The restrictions are particularly onerous for Catholics, he said: “We are a sacramental Church. We need to have physical presence to the mysteries....” However, when questioned about the possibility that Catholics might defy state regulations, he said that is “not going to happen.”
