Just who runs this facility? Another Murfree friend? Who would have been responsible for the 'miscoding'?

Of course The Hospital Authority is corrupt! Any members with integrity should resign before the Commission replaces them. Maybe not happening this week?! Herald, this is another example of an article that many people can't comment on from their Facebook page. Phoebe thumbs their nose at The Supreme Court, you don't think they would punish the little people?

This change will stifle the free exchange of information and concerns regarding the very serious issues facing our area. I am not the only one who fears retaliation from my employer, Phoebe, or the church for expressing my views. Sure, freedom is abused sometimes, but freedom is messy. The Herald has failed to set and enforce reasonable standards, and now it's throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Many of us find Facebook absurd and don't participate. I wish you well but won't be checking the website as often.

Thanks for your letter. I know it takes courage to open yourself up to all this ridicule. Thanks to you, and those who have come before you, this discriminating is rapidly declining. May we soon get to the point where no one really cares what living, consenting adults do. And where you can have the same respect and financial benefits that heterosexuals enjoy. God bless you.
