I am well aware it is privately owned, but really do they really think this is a good business policy?
It's not good business. Financially, the decision could end up being a costly one. People who don't agree with the it, might stop buying the newspaper. Companies could stop advertising. Other businesses will pull ads. Print media, in general, is already having a hard time. I think any decision that causes a business to lose money is absurd.

When you have a product that more older people buy, you have to target the older buyer. And the younger populous favors gay relationships-they get their news online. Why produce a product that won't sell? Or will turn off your consumer? Once again Older your daily agenda and your daily hope of pushing this down our throats is in direct contradiction to what the free market allows a business to do. And,your daily liberal agenda also contradicts the business philosophy of producing a product and selling it to a targeted audience or buyer. Basically, Older, The newspaper buying audience does not show statistically that they favor seeing a gay marriage announcement whether YOU want them to or not.
Thus IMO it is NOT GOOD BUSINESS

older, you asked if it was a good business policy to refuse to print the ad, right? I said it was not good business , and why it was not from one financial viewpoint. Why is that "hogwash?"
