Kissing Osama bin Laden, Hugging Prefered

I swear, you can't make this stuff up. There's nothing gay about a former Australian ballet dancer who changes his name to 'Jihad', describes Osama bin Laden as 'floating across the floor', and has insights into the most wanted terrorist on Earth's preference for hugging over kissing. Nothing gay to see here folks, move along. BBC:

Australia's "Jihad Jack", convicted of receiving funds from al-Qaeda, says Osama Bin Laden does not like being kissed but is happy to be hugged....

Thomas said he once shook hands with Bin Laden at an al-Qaeda camp in Afghanistan.

Bin Laden was "very polite and humble and shy. He didn't like too many kisses... he didn't mind being hugged but kisses he didn't like and he just seemed to float... across the floor," Thomas told ABC. ...

As a child Thomas was rejected as a ballet dancer for being too stocky and joined a punk band, The Lobotomy Scars.

He converted to Islam and changed his name by deed poll to Jihad before heading to Afghanistan in March 2001.

Bad gay? No. Bad, bad, bad gay.
