Well, perhaps the morally conservative Christians who make up this man's constituency should speak up at the next election.

I would not be surprised if he got re-elected, but perhaps you have more faith in them.

just thinking ... if this passes (which it won't) then we'll have to ban shakespeare (all those sonnets written to a lovely young man) and walt whitman and the guy who wrote _Ethan Frome_. there's that scene in _Catcher in the Rye_ with Mr. Antolini. and there are those interesting passages in the beginning of _Moby Dick_ ... all sorts of talk about harpoons in a homosocial environment. pursuing a *sperm* whale, no less.

*shudder*

come to think of it, Bush's "mandate" sounds pretty gay too. man-date.

i went on one of those on sunday.

Which isn't what happened up there...but

that thing was written by a bunch of guys who wouldn't let girls in the club, so they might a little suspect as well!

Somehow I don't think you'll see him in a library.

Hehehehehe.... Nice.

*Is very happy to see that everyone else in this thread is as unhappy about this as she is-restores her faith in humanity . Loved the point about the Bible that was made, too-so freakin' true*

By the way, I'm wondering if this guy paid attention in history class (doubt it)-didn't Hitler do things similar to this? What a great guy to emulate.

No, I doubt if he knows where his community library is.

I agree with the people who are concerned that this will make all evangelical Christians look bad. Some people will just make blanket judgments of all people of the evangelical persuasion and will come to the grossly unfair conclusion that they are all stupid. I know this is not true, but there's going to be some real tensions between groups in this country. I personally know of some evangelical Christians *right here in Birmingham* who are not at all anti-gay. People are going to be singled out for certain kinds of treatment just by their membership in a group. This is scary.

I don't know what you mean

The so-called 'Christian coalition" or "religious right” have shown what they are already.

Some evangelical Christians think Catholicism is a satanic cult. Others know it's a group of Christians with a few different beliefs and practices. Some are smart, some are klutzes. They don't all think Roy Moore and now this "book banner" clown are wonderful. I don't need to be told that the Christian Right is running my state. I know it is. I know that there are some evangelical Christians who wouldn't vote for these clowns as well.

There are some protestants (a very small percentage) who claim that Catholics won't go to heaven - total bull. There are also a small percentage of Catholics who feel that way about protestants. It's unfortunate. We believe the same basic message, and there's no reason to slam each other over it.

Always important to research before voting day.
