And I'd Like to add, Jeff Gordon will soon be banned too

Ah, Alabama, keeps up its long-term battle with Missisippi to be comprised of the dumbest bunch of legislative baffoons in the nation, and with this they are pulling ahead:
Legislators continue to debate a bill that would stop schools from spending state funds on books that recognize or promote homosexuality.


[The] bill originally would have banned all schools and public libraries from buying novels with gay characters and other materials that depict a gay lifestyle. He has narrowed it to instructional materials and books for libraries at K-12 schools.

Allen said the new version excludes classics, like some Shakespeare, and would allow college theater groups to perform popular plays like "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" by Tennessee Williams.

I'm sure this is a reaction to public displays of affection between men that so many conservatives find offensive. I mean those sorts of things are what the religious right finds to be destroying America's moral fibre right?

Of course, they could also ask, "What no tongue with a Christian?"
