Will the editors please explain how printing the anti-Proposition 8 comment from “DeschutesMan” (TNT, 8-5) contributes to thoughtful public discourse on the important issue of same-sex marriage?

Even those who might support his position should find his choice of words offensive on many levels. I thought your editorial policy was designed to prevent such hateful anonymous commentary.
