Christian News Site Automatically Changes Pseudo-World Record Holder's Last Name From Gay To "Homosexual"

Monday, June 30, 2008

As evidenced by some of the stories in the Sports World of late there are some overly sensitive folks out there. One of those groups of people happen to be the Christian news network One News Now who apparently have a filter that changes the word "Gay" to "Homosexual". Obviously it does it for people who have the name Gay, like new 100-meter World Record holder Tyson Gay, and thus gives us the best headline ever....


The craziest part of the whole thing is that when you click on the story it links to the AP version with the correct version of the runner's name. Too funny and it might be time to update your homosexual editing software, One News Now.

AA, Tyson Gay doesn't hold the world record. He has run the fastest time, but it was wind-aided and therefore unrecognized by the record-keepers.

Good thing the "Gay-Love" era in Memphis didn't last long, or that program would've exploded.

Fantastic, but maybe they know something about Gay that we don't...

They must have confused Gay with the track star (Gatlin?) who used to make prom dresses.

I don't know what is funnier:

The fact that he was called Tyson Homosexual, or a website run by crazy people have a filter that turns the word "gay" to "homosexual"
