It's tough right now. I am about to explode with anger. This guy is going to be receiving a suitably irate note from me sooner rather than later.

even if it were to pass it would be struck down by the supreme court as unconstitutional. It still makes me sad to know that people think this way

If we were to ban gay books, we'd have to ban lustful books long before it, along with evolution books. That pretty much means burn down a few libraries. This guy's agenda hardly makes sense. He can disagree with homosexuality if he wants, but banning books is not going to stop it.

What's the benefit of banning and burying these books? There's worse things out there than homosexuality.

Then we should ban all books that have any kind of sex, vilolence, or anything controversial for that fact...oh wait that would include the Bible.

why do these tactics seem to work?
Actually, you got both of those wrong. The lesbian thing was said by Tom Coburn, the Senator-elect from Oklahoma.

Fritz Hollings is a retiring Democrat. Jim DeMint is the guy who beat Inez, and doesn't want single mothers teaching.

Heh, heh. I seem to remember some stories about a guy who was friends with prostitutes. We don't want our kids getting the wrong ideas ....

That's rather strange. Does he want single mothers working at all?

he didn't want them working in schools because he didn't think their lifestyle choice -- to have children without being married -- was an appropriate one for children to emulate.

since all 6th graders want to grow up and be exactly like their teachers, as we all know. 11 year olds think their teachers are the coolest.

Does this mean they have to burn their interior decorating books?

If we're going to ban books, why not ban romance novels? Those really screwed me up. I would read about inexperienced virgins being ravaged by virile men and exploding in orgasmic bliss and think the first time I had sex would be mind-blowing. Instead, I lied there thinking, "What the fuck was that?"
