It Begins: Newspaper Will 'Very Strictly Limit' Op-Eds Opposing Same-Sex Marriage

With the Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalizes same-sex marriage, the gay rights movement won a significant legal and cultural battle. But in typical leftist fashion, that is not the end of the war—at least not until the opposition is further weakened, crushed, and silenced.

Predictably, it didn’t take long for the next phase to begin.

The editorial board of PennLive/The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa. is taking a hardcore stance against those who disagree with the Supreme Court ruling to legalize gay marriage.

“As a result of Friday’s ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage,” they declared.

After receiving strong pushback, the newspaper’s editorial board, which is overseen by Editorial Page Editor John Micek, quickly revised its policy. Freedom of speech will be allowed — but only for a “limited” period of time.

Micek explained on Twitter: “Clarification: We will not foreclose discussion of the high court’s decision, but arguments that gay marriage is wrong/unnatural are out.”

Before that, there was this: “From the edit: ‘PL/PN will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage.’ …This is not hard: We would not print racist, sexist or anti-Semitc letters. To that, we add homophobic ones. Pretty simple.”

The First Amendment be damned. Same-sex marriage is the law of the land—end of discussion.
