Author Expelled After "Gay" Misunderstanding

British cleric Reverend Graham Taylor, author of "Shadowmancer," had his school speaking engagement cut short after he used the word "gay" as part of a reproduced catchphrase from a TV show, in reference to "Harry Potter."
The teachers at the school accused him of homophobia after he said that Harry Potter was not "the only gay in the village," which is a phrase used on the popular British TV comedy show "Little Britain," and by which he said he meant to state that Harry Potter wasn't the only book they could read.

Taylor said he was hoping the fans of "Little Britain" would get the joke. Reports say he also called the series' villains "wimps."
