Fear of two men kissing

The Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune exhibits a peculiar notion of what is in good taste:
Ben Taylor, the newspaper's senior vice president of communications, told the station: "Our feeling was that this was an advertisement for an event, and two men kissing was clearly meant to be inflammatory. It was not in good taste in the context of what it was advertising."
The ad was for the Minneapolis gay pride parade.
While I find kissing a guy inflaming I've never thought it inflammatory. Then again I'm not a timid executive afraid of offending a few subscribers or advertisers.
If I were world dictator I'd probably lockup homophobes who writhe at the site of gay people expressing affection in a room that showed gay porn nonstop. Surely after a month of that they'd find queer kisses more boring than hateful.
I trust all of you are doing your best to be as inflammatory as possible every day.
