Apparently 51% of the country asked for this shit. It's going to get worse before it gets better. As soon as you have a little support for keeping one portion of the population under lock and key, sorta speak, you'll have every hateful wacko coming out of the woodworks.

after they purge american life of homosexuality, what's next? who will they have to scapegoat for every conceivable social ill?

let's start a list of possible contenders for "the new gays":

1. the jews (kind of obvious, i know)
2. muslims in America
3. californians, or perhaps just san franciscans
4. doctors
5. Christmas and Easter Christians
6. new yorkers
7. lawyers
8. single mothers
9. television writers (though this is almost the same thing as "the jews")
10. europeans living in America


place your bets now! who will political Christianity blame next?

Isn't this old news? Like was posted here in Jan?

There are lots of crazy guys in state legislatures doing this kind of crap. They never get anywhere.

You guys are doing a fine job of grouping all 'political christianity' as wacko's against the world.

Give it a rest. You're getting just as over the top as this bozo.

Yeah, the guy originally did the proposal in January. I remember the day it hit the Birmingham newspapers. I was outraged then, and I get more and more angry as I read about the guy's actions. The guy's a lunatic and he's just trying to build a political career on fear and hatred. This is Alabama politics for you. We have the worst schools, the worst everything in the country because no one is willing to pay taxes to even maintain basic services. I don't recommend that anyone move here.

imagine if someone told you that you couldn't get married.

or adopt children, because they don't want you raising children (remember: you've done nothing wrong, they don't know you).

and that any books mentioning you, or written about your particular "group" were to be removed from the public libraries because taxpayer money shouldn't "endorse" your "lifestyle."



and we wonder why so many gay people hate themselves.

and we're just scapegoat du jour.

i've got to great semantic lengths to call this a "particular stripe" of "political" christianity.

please, drop the semantic distinctions. we all know what is being talked about.

Censorship has a way of backfiring. The most effective way to get a kid (or adult ) to read a book they never would have touched is to tell them it is forbidden.

Its ridiculous. Even with the ban, kids are still going to find out about homosexuality, from the TV, Internet and the newspapers.

I guess Allen is going to ban TV and the Internet, and censor the press.
