like the sign says: "hate is not a family value"...

Journalism and right-wing christianism clearly don't mix:
"Tyson Homosexual easily won his semifinal for the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials," the article read, "and seemed to save something for the final later Sunday." The headline read "Homosexual eases into 100 final at Olympic events."
Global word-change run amuck at the American Family Association is the bet here. Consider the attitude, and not just from these sanctimonious yabbos, of insisting on calling a group or individual other than what they wish to be called and with a default pejorative. Why, it fondly harkens Muhammad Ali and his fight with Ernie Terrell, who insisted on calling Ali "Cassius Clay," his birth name, after Ali instructed the media and the world his name was legally changed to Ali.

*Whap!* "WHAT'S MY NAME!!?" *Pow!*

too funny. And I thought the liberal slackers at CNN were the only ones that couldn't handle spellcheck.
