Banning the metaphor

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has finally gone completely PC bonkers:

Smith called Olsen's brother "the *** in Luther's armor" and warned him the bill has no chance of getting through the Legislature whether Olsen voted for it or not.

"***" ???

The phrase was "you are the chink in Luther's armor."

Has that word -- and phrase -- now been banned at the JS? In this context? Seriously?
