HARRISBURG, PA, June 26, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – One of the largest news publishers in Pennsylvania, put out an editorial on the Supreme Court ruling noting, “As a result of Friday’s ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage.”

After a public outcry the publication recanted slightly but maintained a near ban on all comment opposed to same-sex “marriage.”

The new section reads:

As a result of Friday's ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will very strictly limit op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage.

These unions are now the law of the land. And we will not publish such letters and op-Eds any more than we would publish those that are racist, sexist or anti-Semitic.

We will, however, for a limited time, accept letters and op-Eds on the high court's decision and its legal merits.
