How is it possible that our local paper can print such hateful material?

My friend and neighbor, Wendy Cohen alerted me to this horrific article. 

I am a professional who knows all too well the impact of such hate.  Perhaps Mr. Zimmerman should examine the scientific data about the impact of prejudice; perhaps he can visit the Tyler Clementi Center at Rutgers.  

But I cannot see the purpose of printing such hate in my local town newspaper.

Every gay or lesbian youth or adult that resides in AH does not deserve to read this garbage.  I cannot fathom such material being published in this day and age.
