Great Moments in Christoholic, Homophobic Censorship
(Tip o’ the tinfoil hat to Mark Morford at the SF Chronicle.)
Thanks to Right Wing Watch, a delightful site that delights in keeping an eye on the AFA and other toxic mushrooms that spring up on the right side of the yard comes this pearl. One of the best catches of the year occurred late last month when this intrepid bunch this once again held their nose, put on their intellectual hazmat gear and spelunked into the subterranean bowels of Crazy Base World.
Among their disturbing discoveries (among them eyeless and heartless cave fish, similarly eyeless political moles who, despite their tiny stature, nonetheless have undermined every political campaign since 1980 and pure, lethally toxic Koolaid that drips from the stalagmites) is their “gay filter.”
You see, Christopaths are so shudderingly, tightie-whitie-pissing frightened of anything having to do with teh gays that they’d actually targeted the word “gay” in their filter so that any news stories on the AFA’s official website containing the word “gay” had been replaced with the now-outmoded and politically-incorrect word “homosexual.”
Hence, we’re treated to news stories of Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay being rechristened “Tyson Homosexual” (they’ve since removed the offensive word “gay” from their filter).
Yes, people, it’s come to this. And the Christian right has come to that. Reading stories like this are almost enough to make a red-blooded liberal heterosexual male put on a mesh shirt, drive to a gay bar in Provincetown and toast the Christpaths’ immolation with a wine spritzer just out of pure spite.
