This was not "THE NEWS". This was a sweet old lady's obituary who had a loving son who had a loving husband. They wrote the obituary to express their love for their mother/mother-in-law.

 

This "minister" took that opportunity to express his anti-gay marriage stance.

 

To take this action against people who were in their time of deepest sorrow just shows how ill equipped this supposed "minister" is in regards to living a Christian life.


You have constantly reminded everyone that you are not a Christian but Jewish, so who are you to criticize those following Christian teachings.  Has anyone criticized your faith?  Even the Old Testament has instructions against the gay life style.

 

Suggest you not read his paper if you disagree with his views.

But that isn't the topic but some providing their opinions about the topic.   And I was furnishing my opinion....I believe I'm entitled to do so, unless there is some site bias; you said nothing about the topic which is about the editor/publisher/owner omitting something against his religious beliefs as an ordained minister in addition to publishing a small town newpaper.

Not in the intergluteal cleft of the nation, where all manner of absurdity is commonplace...

The continued beating of the drums against same sex marriage is, again, proof that TEXANS target certain groups for different treatment.

 

In the past, with the Republicans holding all statewide offices and holding both houses of the legislature, statements against LGBT rights abounded. Even Rick Perry, former Governor, was quite vocal about his opposition to same sex marriage.

 

The problem is.... same sex marriage is the law of the land.

 

But that doesn't matter to the publisher of a TEXAS newspaper.

 

A lady died. Her obituary was written. Her son AND HIS HUSBAND were left to mourn her passing. The son and son's husband's name was written into the obituary. But the publisher removed son's husband's name like he never existed.

 

Even in death, TEXANS continue to apply their special brand of discrimination.

 

The brand that makes them the most racist state in the union.

And what does any part of your post have to do with the topic?  And of course the mandatory insertion of the KKK into topics.  Must say that some can't resist.  Did you read that the owner/publisher was a Baptist minister with strong religious convictions.  Is there a problem with that?

 

I note that even large newspapers like the Houston Chronicle slants the news according to editorial policy.  What about what is posted here on this site?  Are not posters editorializing?

 

But yes, I would believe that a newspaper could print or omit anything as long as it isn't libelous or an attempt at slander.  Wouldn't bringing personal matters and bringing family into public discussions be somewhat like that?

   Let's see here, if a fellow owns a local newpaper then he is free to write or omit any information that they choose.    If there was an attack on  people of  south-east asian descent and anyone who were married to them,.then that too must be acceptable, via the disjointed idea for freedom of the press, right?

 

    The excuse of a "back water" location is how the KKK got started, as did many other racist groups, just sayin...  How quickly some seem to forget that some alt-right guy decided he would go the ND and attempt to buy a small town.... that small community said NO.    http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-25646954.

And so the bigot "takes his superstition seriously" -  and the so-called  "christian" is persecuting - quite immorally, unethically, and unpatriotically - someone he superstitiously believes is not worthy of equal treatment - with absolutely no verified valid proof...

 

Scum like that despicable man is one of many reasons that membership in organized religion in the USA is steadily and irreversibly declining ...

 

More than one in five Americans no longer professes belief in any religion - and the number continues to grow daily...

Apparently you didn't read my post thoroughly regarding religious beliefs.  And why some came to this country for free exercise thereof.  What do you have against religious freedom?
