Pastor Who Supported State Issue One Now Says He Opposes The Ballot Measure
An Ohio pastor who supported state issue one now says he has changed his mind.
Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.
Pastor Greg Delaney of Xenia works with drug addicts who are trying to beat the disease and says he had been working for Issue 1.
He says he shot an ad for it. But he says he’s learned more about it now and will now oppose it.
“The idea is great. The mechanism is flawed.”
Delaney says the Christian Coalition of America paid him to support Issue 1. Keith den Hollander is a spokesman for that group.
“He was not paid for his endorsement for the campaign.”
Den Hollander says Delaney was hired to do other work for the group.
A spokesman for the Issue 1 campaign, Dennis Willard, says he’s thankful for faith organizations and faith leaders for their support.
