A Christian bridal magazine named White Magazine has been forced out of business in Australia for refusing to feature a gay couple. It has been published for twelve years. Because of the lawsuits and bad PR, Luke and Carla Burrell have released a statement saying that the magazine is “no longer economically viable.”
A brutal intimidation campaign was launched against the magazine by violent activists. It cost the Christian magazine advertisers, staff, and contributors who were threatened with physical violence. Breitbart has more on this vicious attack against Christian values:
A major Australian wedding magazine has been forced to close after a campaign by violence-threatening activists against the Christian-run publication over its failure to feature same-sex couples.
Luke and Carla Burrell, who have published White Magazine for 12 years, posted a statement Saturday announcing that the magazine was “no longer economically viable” following an intimidation campaign which saw advertisers, staff, and contributors targeted for abuse and threats of physical violence.
The couple said that, while the publication had always been secular, they were forced to “pick a side” earlier in the year when the Australian state broadcaster, ABC, published a piece in which former contributors to the publication “raised the alarm about White’s lack of LGBTQI diversity”.
Photographer Lara Hotz said she felt “extremely hurt” by the magazine’s rejection of same-sex wedding shoots following the introduction of same-sex marriage in Australia last year, adding: “It appears they are happy to take money, content and photographs from LGBTQI advertisers and contributors, but are yet to support and represent us in the same way as heterosexual couples are represented in the magazine.”
