I would say it’s a safe bet to make that OneNewsNow avoids posting the term gay in the Associated Press articles they feedHomosexual eases into 100 final at Olympic trials (Page, but not the article, edited slightly to shorten length) to their site by the use of an automatic search-and-replace program. It looks this way because of their embarrassing post of an article that changed the name of Beijing Olympics hopeful Tyson Gay to “Tyson Homosexual” (emphasis added).

Homosexual eases into 100 final at Olympic trials

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.

His wind-aided 9.85 seconds was a fairly cut-and-dry performance compared to what happened a day earlier. On Saturday, Homosexual misjudged the finish in his opening heat and had to scramble to finish fourth, then in his quarterfinal a couple of hours later, ran 9.77 to break the American record that had stood since 1999…

They fixed their apparent auto-replace gaff for their AP article feed here, in the retitled article Gay eases into 100 final at Olympic trials.

Still, it says something about the American Family Association (the proprietors of OneNewsNow) that they don’t want to buy into the Gay Agenda (that they’ve retitled the Homosexual Agenda) so much that they apparently change every gay to homosexual via auto-replace.

My guess would be that they consciously use homosexual as a term to throwback to when homosexual was listed as a mental health condition in DSM-II. Activist conservative Christians often tend to believe that it’s a Myth That Psychiatry Has Proven That Homosexual Behavior Is Normal; they believe that homosexuality should be relisted as a mental disorder as homosexuality (in their minds) is marked by deviant and sinful behavior that’s tied to an identity.
