You are exactly correct. I even signed up on CNN to post to the original article and my comment was "held for review." I don't expect to ever see it posted.
All you ever hear anymore on the Lamestream Media is "marriage equality" and newspeak garbage like that.
The media sees this as a great civil rights issue. If you see it from that perspective, it’s no wonder that you’d want to shut down all dissent. Of course, they’re wrong, but that’s how they see it.
