Tyson Homosexual Sets Record

It's going to be an embarrassing day at the office for people who get their news from the Christian web site One News Now. The water cooler conversation about sports is going to get awkward when they say, "Did you see the record set by Tyson Homosexual?"

Yes, One News Now, which describes itself as providing "your latest news from a Christian perspective," calls the Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay "Tyson Homosexual."

Jim Buzinski of Outsports explains that the site has set a filter to change the word "gay" to "homosexual," and they don't bother to look at the context of the story before applying the filter. And that's how Gay became Homosexual. - Michael David Smith of AOL Sports
As one commenter, UkraineNotWeak wrote, "He ran like he was on fire. I guess that would make him a "Flaming Homosexual" in the Christian Right's eyes."
