Editor Fired Over Gay Comments on Blog
The editor of an Iowa newspaper was fired a week after he posted a personal blog on the gay community.
Bob Eschliman wrote that the "Queen James Bible" is an attempt by homosexuals "to make their sinful nature 'right with God,'" referring to them as "gaystopo" and "the enemy."
"It's pretty easy to brush off a nonsensical contrived version of the Bible, but that's not the deceivers' end goal," Eschliman wrote. "No, they want all Christendom to abandon their faith. They do that by 'proselytizing' to church leaders to change their view on homosexuality."
The owner of the Newton Daily News says Eschliman's opinion does not reflect the position of the newspaper and his blog compromised the paper's reputation.
