Shut down the petition to "Rewrite Thomas Monson Obituary on New York Times"

This petition had 293 supporters

Recently someone started a petition to rewrite an obituary The New York Times wrote of Thomas S Monson, formerly President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

In true mormon fashion they didn't like the truth and verifiable facts the obituary stated. In the petition they also compared the obituary to Fidel Castro and the pope as a manipulative plot to gain shock and sympathy for their cause. 

ll people, including the New York Times and its authors, have the right to free speech and free press. And we must not let people censor this for religious reasons. Let them disagree based on their own bias. But to censor this freedom is a violation of what America was founded on. 

We are asking that the creator of that petition grow up and formally apologize for this bias towards the New York Times. And to take their frivolous petition down. And to understand freedom of speech will not be conceded due to your religious beliefs.
