Kudos to Manchester Union-Leader for Rejecting Homosexual ‘Marriage’ Notice

Two men or two women cannot get "married" truthfully before God any more than they can produce a child on their own. Homosexual "marriage" may be legal in some states and nations, but it will always be immoral in the eyes of God.

The Manchester Union-Leader in New Hampshire – which has a long and storied history of defending conservatism – has rejected publication of a “marriage” announcement for a male homosexual couple (who are going through a ”marrage” ceremony today). [Editor's Note: AFTAH always puts homosexual "marriage" in quotation marks because -- although "same-sex marriage" is legal in New Hampshire --  two men cannot "get married" before God any more than they can produce a child on their own.]

TAKE ACTION: The Union-Leader is now being attacked by pro-homosexuality activists. Contact the Union-Leader HERE. The following is Publisher Joseph McQuaid’s statement: 

This newspaper has never published wedding or engagement announcements from homosexual couples. It would be hypocritical of us to do so, given our belief that marriage is and needs to remain a social and civil structure between men and women, and our opposition to the recent state law legalizing gay marriage.

That law was not subject to public referendum and the governor (John Lynch) who signed it was elected after telling voters that he was opposed to gay marriage. Indeed, in no state where the public has been allowed a direct vote on the subject has gay marriage prevailed.

We are not “anti-gay.” We are for marriage remaining the important man-woman institution it has always been.

While the law sanctions gay marriage, it neither demands that churches perform them or that our First Amendment right to choose what we print be suspended. In accordance with that right, we continue our longstanding policy of printing letters to the editor from New Hampshire citizens, whether or not they agree with us.”

Here is my note to the Union-Leader:

To the Manchester Union-Leader:

Thanks for Defending Marriage

Thank you for your stand in NOT recognizing counterfeit “gay marriages.” Although I believe the Union-Leader has compromised its principled, conservative reputation in recent years by NOT resolutely resisting ALL efforts by the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) lobby to normalize homosexuality — a sexual perversion and a sin — I commend you and publisher Joseph McQuaid for not capitulating on the timeless definition of marriage.

Respectfully,
