Chaz Bono got run over by a homophobic reindeer!

    1. Petition by

      Tom Emmott

      Traverse City, MI

Dan Phelps wrote degrading and homophobic lyrics about Chaz Bono to the tune of "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer".  This appeared in the Lowell Sun newspaper in Lowell, MA. on December 19, 2011.  Dan Phelps, his editor James Campanini and Mark O'Neill, the President/Publisher owe Mr. Bono, the nationwide LBGT Community and the Lowell Sun readers an apology.   I sent a scathing email to Editor, James Campanini and he replied with-"Merry Christmas".  I sent a second email saying that I was going to start a petition against him and the newspaper.  Please join me in wiping out homophobia at the Lowell Sun newspaper.  You can read the original unfunny lyrics at http://pamshouseblend.firedoglake.com.2011/12/19massachusetts-newspaper-lowell-sun-celebrates-christmas-bt-disparaging-trans-people/
