Admit the error and change policyPlease don’t make your decision on whether to keep The Forum’s discriminatory policy by taking “community feedback.” Please remember the reason you got into this business – to publish the news of the people – and to be fair, ethical, and practice free speech. Get a backbone, and publish the news of same-sex marriage or commitment ceremonies just as you would that of other marriages, anniversaries, birthdays, Boy Scout accomplishments, etc.
As a Concordia grad, I will always support the Fargo-Moorhead community. I believe in what the community has to offer, and I loved my time there. As a citizen of the world, I believe in the rights of all people.
Please stop this craziness and just admit wrong and change your policy. The gay and lesbian community and supporters will accept your apology and graciously move on.
