'Deseret News' denies my comment, all-but-confirms own agenda

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember yesterday when I called out the (conservative, heavily Mormon) Deseret News for running a "poll" conducted by anti-gay writer and activist Gary Lawrence, as if Lawrence's (also conservative, heavily Mormon) work is on par with Gallup? Yeah, well -- check out this little act of egregiousness!

After my post, I went over and left a comment on the article, which you will find below. But before my comment, you will find THE PAPER'S DENIAL of said comment, based on completely inapplicable rationale:

Not only are they shutting out fair discourse, but they are putting an unfair onus on me. The editors are essentially accusing me of some sort of out-of-line behavior, when all I gave them was insight that they themselves were not willing to give!

So in short: Typical behavior for those with a certain "culture war" agenda.
