#  This is essentially what I am testing 
1.  The user is prompted for a new string template (the one with the double underscores in it).

  a. The prompter class has a new method that prompts for the story template, and that method is called.

2.  The user is then prompted for each word that has been double underscored.

   a. The answer is checked to see if it is contained in the censored words.
      User is continually prompted until they enter a valid word

3.  The user is presented with the completed story

Your code is awesome! The problem is with testing. Craigs testing sees the 'censored' word, even if you've filtered it and gives an error.

TL;DR change this line:

            if (isAcceptable)
                System.out.printf("The word %s is not valid, watch your mouth big  boy!!%n ", word);

to

            if (isAcceptable)
                System.out.printf("The word is not valid, watch your mouth big  boy!!%n ");
