It must be tough to be one of the Don Wildmon-type Christians. The Muslims are trying to convert you to their God, who’s actually the same God. The Atheists keep telling you that you are descended from monkeys. And you’re afraid that you will become gay if a homosexual moves into your neighborhood.

That’s probably why you go to the OneNewsNow Web site to get your news. Because you know it’ll give you the Christian news. So I can just imagine your shock yesterday morning when you went to the site and discovered that a Homosexual had run a wind-aided 9.68 seconds sprint to make the Olympics.

Of course, I’m sure that’s got nothing on sprinter Tyson Gay waking up to discover that his spot on the Olympic team was being instead taken by some guy named Tyson Homosexual. And all because some homophobe religious bigots set the auto-replace function to change all uses of “gay” with “homosexual.”

Now the story has been fixed, and Tyson Gay is back on the U.S. Olympic team. But I can’t wait until the Olympics and “Homosexual wins U.S. Gold.” – John Royal

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
