Homovielser must not have place in the columns in the vesthimmerland folkeblad. The editor will not write about the new marriage ritual for gay.
The editor is even against homovielser in the Church, writes tv2nord. dk.
On behalf of the Bishop of Aalborg Diocese sent the priest and press officer Christian Roar Pedersen Monday in an email to a number of Northern Jutland weeklies, where he urged them to write about the new marriage ritual for gay.
The response from the editor Preben Eskildsen of vesthimmerland folkeblad shock:
-In what the hell will write in about homovielser, but it is wrong, and we will not use the column space on it, wrote back on message. Eskildsen Preben
Pastor Christian Roar Pedersen is shaken.
-This is a major problem, if there are parts of the press, who do not want to write about certain topics.
-I hope he has a swallow, but if it is a general picture, so it is a problem for democracy.
-This is a strange news criterion, that he would not write about it, he himself disagrees, says Christian Roar Pedersen to tv2nord. com.
Vesthimmerland people's magazine has a circulation of 9600 newspapers each week. The editor said the map of the phone, that he even owns the newspaper in private, and that he therefore has the right to refuse to write about the topics he did not himself advocate.
-I am very against the homovielser in the Church, and I think the Church Ministry interfere in something, he should not interfere in, says Preben Eskildsen.
Vesthimmerland folkeblad calls itself a non-political newspaper. The magazine often writes about events in the local churches.
