Newspaper coverage a reflection of gay-tolerant community

Miami Herald

Edward Schumacher-Matos writes in response to a Miami Herald reader who feels there has been one-sided pro-gay rights coverage in the newspaper.

"In recent years, most of us have come to accept the scientific view that sexual orientation is not a life choice, but a matter of genetics that defines a person as much as race. It is opposition to gay rights that is the life choice. If morality is important in guiding the newspaper -- and I think it is -- then this means that the newspaper is morally obliged to be more concerned about its impact on gays in our community than on those whose life choice is to restrict them."  [Link]
