Editor Promises Response to Hate Piece in C. of DuPage Newspaper


Yesterday I posted an item about this hateful opinion piece in the College of DuPage's student newspaper, Courier, written by Wayne Lela of anti-gay hate group Heterosexuals Organized for a Moral Environment.

I received an email from the paper's editor, Vikaas Shanker, today, which I'll share:

"The Courier will print an editorial in this Friday’s issue (Nov. 5) which will address the decision to print Mr. Lela’s letter in the Oct. 29 issue. Due to space issues, we will not be able to print all letters to the editor, but we will print the petition sent to us and some letters from the college community. Most other letters will go on the web in a viewable PDF format. All letters are subject to editing for grammar, style, language, length and libel as stated in our Courier policy."

Wait and see.
