New Hampshire newspaper rejects legal gay wedding announcement

Gay marriage is legal in New Hampshire… but try telling that to the Union Leader newspaper of Manchester. The conservative-leaning daily recently rejected a gay-marriage announcement and caused a huge uproar.

Although the state legalized homosexual marriages in June 2009, God still has not sent any apocalyptic floods New Hampshire's way. (Nor, it seems, has He made a statement about how disappointed He is that loving couples are binding their unions with legal paperwork and a ceremony.) Nonetheless, the Union Leader's owner still does not realize his state has entered the 21st century.

"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."

I'm just going to say it clearly: fuck the Union Leader and congratulations to Greg Gould and Aurelio Tine! If the Union Loser won't print the wedding announcement, I will.
