Idaho newspaper disavows anti-gay sticker on its front pages

Jim Romanesko reports that after Wednesday's publication of the ad in four Idaho newspapers, "a House committee voted 13-4 to reject adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the Idaho Human Rights Act."
     Publisher Mike Jung clarified that it was all about the money it was all about freedom of advertisers to espouse varying viewpoints and that his papers had, in fact strongly supported the rejected legislation.
The ad included the URL to a website with a post claiming that “the essential nature of homosexuality, ‘transgenderism,’ and other forms of sexual deviancy is, ultimately a form of rape.”
