CBA Clarifies "Language List" and Adds New Words

The line in the sand is a line no more. CBA has finally approved a list of forbidden words...and it's longer than you might expect. PW Religion's Jana Riess breaks the story... a little earlier than expected.

I for one am glad. This nebulous gray area has gone too long. Personally, I don't think the list is stern enough. "Episcopalian," for instance? Still on there. You can still mention the restaurant "Hooters" and all subsidiary corporations including "Hooters Air" and "Hooters Casino." And after Brokeback Mountain should we really be using, "cowboy," "flannel," and "cattle drive?"

Just one man's opinion.
