Cardinal724 said...that's what I meant, which you can clearly see if you reread my post where I say "it's a little odd that the *article*(ie-the one posted in the OP), claims this letter came from the whole gay community". It's the fact that the site that posted the letter wrote as the headline that "Gay community apologizes..." which is strange when in reality, it's just one man.
I think it's one of those things that we in Britain call "a joke".
I think you missed the point of my post completely...I get the joke. I don't care that the author of the letter says he's writing on behalf of the gay community. It's part of the satire and gives the letter part of its punch. But what *is* just a little bit irksome is that the author of the news article writing *about* the letter used as it's headline "Gay community apologizes". In and of itself this is not too big a deal but simply something worth noting. Also my original post was meant as simply to validate SouthBeach's post which itself had merit to it. Just because 99% of what he says may be ridiculous, it doesn't mean every single point he makes is likewise ridiculous just because it came from him
Generally, reporters don't write their own headlines, which is more often the job of the copy editors who also have the layout before them so they know how much print to fit. Headlines are not there to editorialize, but to sum up the article. This fluff piece about a letter written tongue in cheek was thereby appropriately summarized by its headline.
Meanwhile, nice job SB on that little hand grenade of yours, as you've got them scattering around an argument you know you can't win. You do seem to sometimes know your enemy better then they know themselves. One day, you may even learn to know yourself as well as you know your enemy.
