You want to know just how sensitive, Politically Correct and ridiculous people are getting? Well the owners of a Christian bookstore in Knoxville, Tennessee just discovered the answer to this question as they were left dumbfounded after the News Sentinel rejected their ad because it included an offensive word – “Christian.”
Excerpt From Todd Starnes:
Lois McGinnis and her family own Cedar Springs Christian Store. They recently decided to close a second location of the store so they decided to place an ad in the classified section of the newspaper, which is owned by Gannett. The advertisement read: “Store closing sale – Cedar Springs Christian Store – Clinton Highway location – All merchandise, fixtures, slat walls must go. Sale through August 13, phone 865.947.XXX.” Mrs. McGinnis placed the ad on July 26. It was supposed to run on July 28. But when she opened up the newspaper – the ad was nowhere to be found. So Mrs. McGinnis phoned the newspaper and spoke with a classified ad employee.
