Isn't religious freedom one of the foundations of America, so much that over the years people from other countries came here to escape religious persecution?

 


So you say you are agreeing with the anti-gay sentiment expressed so publicly by this publisher.

 

You say you agree with, in this time of deep sorrow with a loss of a parent; that one's personal belief should override another's personal belief to the detriment of the other person.

 

You don't think that removing a spouse from an obituary, a legal spouse that loved your parent and is mourning also, is a form of religious persecution?

 

Man.... THAT'S COLD.

The fish are not biting today.  Further 'the intended fish' believes the owner/editor of newmedia has the right to publish what he/she wants and exercise editorial content over articles.  There is that thing called the First Amendment.

 

Further, this is a small town newspaper in a town with only 2500 residents.

 

But more important believes that a person should look homeward and insure his own state is in order before criticizing another.

 

Note that the owner/editor of the paper is also a minister in the Baptist Church with firm religious convictions.  Some people take their religion seriously unlike some that just claim a faith.  Isn't religious freedom one of the foundations of America, so much that over the years people from other countries came here to escape religious persecution?

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.
