I am not an editor, nor do I play one on TV. But I do supervise an editor who is responsible for producing a regional denominational periodical (Baptist). She is interested in soliciting articles that would both defend and critique the recent decision of the District of Columbia to permit same-sex marriages. One option is to say nothing about it and go on with our news and promotion articles. But she believes that to ignore a major issue is to court irrelevance. Another option is to print only one side, what most of us would consider the Christian and moral side, opposed to same sex marriage. But we do have within our Convention pastors and churches who are vigorously supportive of this new practice, and to ignore that or to refuse to give them a voice seems unfair. So the solution she proposes is to solicit point/counterpoint articles, making sure that the authors know that she will edit out pejoratives and hate language, no matter which side it comes from. But she is still concerned that some of our church members may be offended, either at the very mention of this practice or at the space given to a point of view most will not agree with. So, since I am her supervisor, I need to give or withhold permission. What say you?
