False Report in Bay Windows Corrected

Bay Windows tried to make MassResistance/Article 8 appear ineffectual, publishing a "news story" that a protest against the concert by the Boston Gay Men's Chorus at the Concord-Carlisle High School "fizzled". Well, MassResistance/Article 8 never called for a demonstration! Bay Windows did run our correction in their "Letters to the Editor" column this week:

How not to celebrate Palm Sunday

The headline (see “Article 8 Protest of Boston Gay Men’s Chorus Fizzles,” April 13) states that Article 8 called for a protest of the BGMC concert at Concord-Carlisle HS on Sunday, April 9.
They did no such thing.

Article 8 supporters would not turn out for a protest on Palm Sunday. The idea of that concert on that day was so repugnant that no one would go anywhere near it! We were simply getting the news out that the event was on the calendar. Many people then contacted the school administrators.

Please correct your misleading headline and story.

Charles Liung, MassResistance

[Bay Windows] Editor’s note: Bay Windows would never presume to understand how the members of a group like Article 8/MassResistance celebrate religious holidays like Palm Sunday.
