"Tyson Homosexual Sprints to the Finish Line"

Because this is what happens when you stop thinking for yourself. From ThinkProgress:
And finally: The American Family Association has a policy of replacing the word “gay” with “homosexual” on its Christian news outlet, OneNewsNow. To do so, it has set up an automatic filter. But the system went awry when it ended up publishing a story about a world-class U.S. sprinter named “Tyson Homosexual” (whose real name is “Tyson Gay”). Therefore, OneNewsNow published an AP story reading, “Tyson Homosexual was a blur in blue, sprinting 100 meters faster than anyone ever has.” OneNewsNow said that it has now taken “the filter out for that word.”
Because sometimes a Gay is not a gay.

What a hoot that their filter makes such a hash of things.
This is the same group that got the Heinz ad pulled. An American (please do not put the rest of us in the same category with this bunch) group, got the ad pulled -- in Britain.

-they are idiots!-
and on THAT note, I am going to have a jello shot. (Somehow, today, idiocy like that deserves jello shots. I have to numb my mind - maybe that way I won't be able to think for myself and I might understand them......)

If you can stand to read the link to the AFA site, it's pretty humorous. they can't even bring themselves to say "that word".

Well, that's Mr. Gay to you, AFA!
