Lorraine Mae Rafferty is a gubernatorial candidate in Oregon with strong conservative views that she is not shy about sharing.
The Republican was recently interviewed by The Oregonian, which asked her what she thought about gay marriage (video below).
"I would have to say I definitely believe that is wrong," said Rafferty. "I believe it is a sin, same as murder is a sin."
Gay marriage may end up on Oregon's November 2014 ballot unless U.S. District Judge Michael McShane rules on same-sex marriages in May.

Rafferty was also asked about abortion.
"I believe that would be murder," stated Rafferty. "I'm against abortion. I think it's misunderstood."
If she becomes governor, Rafferty promised to educate the state that a "baby in the womb is a human being."
