Supported by facts

To the Editor:

Re: "Chicago clergy endorse gay marriage" (April 5, Northwest Herald).
 
Wow. I thought the Catholic Church and other major clergy were against gay marriage. Talk about a misleading headline, this one takes the cake.

The reporter, Sophia Tareen of The Associated Press, wasn't reporting about the views of major churches in Chicago at all but on a few discussions with some low-level pastors. For example, one was a lesbian pastor. Another one was once a leading minister of a nationwide church until he began teaching that everyone goes to heaven. Now he runs his own church, New Dimensions Chicago.

Headlines should be supported by facts, not by some so-called information that supports nothing of consequence. The question is, how does a major report like this get by the editors of The Associated Press? Are they so liberal for gay marriage that anything goes? And the reporter, where did she get her reporting education? Maybe from California, where one can get a certificate for just about anything. 

And the Northwest Herald, how did you let this dribble take up space in your newspaper? Watch for that stuff. I am retired and like to keep my aggravation to a minimum.
