Tyson GayVia Christoher Orr at The Plank, whose blog post brought this to my attention.
Quoting Mr Orr here: "The American Family Association's website evidently changes the word "gay" into "homosexual." This caused a bit of trouble over the weekend when they published an altered version of an AP story about Tyson Gay winning the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials"
This is how the story read, after their ham-handed edit:
Tyson Homosexual easily won his semifinal for the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials and seemed to save something for the final later Sunday.No wonder the right-wingers like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly - these people are just plain stupid!
