This morning, in New Orleans for the Log Cabin Convention, I made my first tough decision as sole blogger on GayPatriot. I had to decide whether to post on the lawsuit filed against LCR while attending the LCR convention. It seemed an unusual place to have to make that choice.
This information did not come to me out of the blue. A source had e-mailed me several days ago about this. I chose not to post anything as he had not provided any evidence. But, when I received the documentation this morning, ironically moments before I registered for the convention, I realized I had to make a decision.
I chose to post because the documents could be easily authenticated. And they are an item of public record. This blog has frequently commented on Log Cabin, posting items positive as well as negative. This story was clearly the province of GayPatriot.org. That said, I realize there are two sides to any case, so I asked Chris Barron to comment.
In the coming days, I will follow the case and will post as soon as I can what information I deem newsworthy. Should representatives of Log Cabin offer any comments (for the record) on the case while I’m here in New Orleans, I will post them as soon as I am able.
Our legal system gives both sides the opportunity to make their case. I believe that principle should extend to the court of public opinion as well. One individual has filed a complaint against Log Cabin. He has begun to make his case. Through this posting, you can access the documents and see his side. I expect that in a short while, Log Cabin will respond to his claim in court. I will make those documents available to you as they become available to me.
With both the complaint and response in hand, you will have a clear picture of the case and be better able to judge for yourself.
