Nebraska Newspaper Reverses Self, Agrees To Tell Both Readers About Upcoming Gay Marriages

The Omaha World-Herald newspaper in Nebraska will begin printing announcements for “legal weddings, engagements for legal weddings or anniversaries of a legal marriage,” a change that comes after parents Jeff and Heidi Wilke were denied a chance to purchase a wedding announcement for their gay daughter only to be told by publisher Terry Kroeger the paper doesn’t print those things about The Gays. He’s since reversed himself after the Facebook harassment campaign began.

      Um Queerty…whoever penned the article above needs lessons in writing clearly, summarizing, and explaining occurrences in chronological order.

      Didn’t the woman in the original story say her daughter was getting married in Minnesota which doesn’t yet have same sex marriage?

      Area residents call it the “Wierd Herald”.

      The “Wierd Herald” does business in neighboring Iowa and was open to a discrimination lawsuit under Iowa civil rights law which covers sexual orientation if it didn’t change its discriminatory policy.
