July should be officially named this year´s funniest month. A couple of weeks ago the Mwanawasa story ,now this. The American Family Association has an automated system that replaces forbidden words for publishing in its Christian news outlet. In this case the word `Gay` was supposed to be replaced by ´Homosexual` .They thought the former might put the issue of homosexuality in a ´positive light`. Good for them!

What brought the issue into the spotlight was when the website published an AP Olympic qualifiers stroy about the  World Champion sprinter, Tyson Gay. The system automatically replaced Mr. Gay´s name into ´Homosexual´ and the  AP reports appeared as  “Tyson Homosexual easily won his semifinal for the 100 meters at the US Olympic track and field trials.” and  “Homosexual eases into 100 final at Olympic trials.”

  

Well lol…never too late to laugh this much …get the full story  here
