      "I don't look at it as censorship," says State Representative Gerald Allen. "I look at it as protecting the hearts and souls and minds of our children."

      Yeah, because sheltering our children from everything that the bible doesn't say something good about and telling them its from hell is a great way to help kids!

      BTW, I can't belive that bullshit, only a true ignorant bastard who wants to force his religous belifes on everybody would say something like that. I am discusted at this...

          But in book after book, Allen reads what he calls the "homosexual agenda," and he's alarmed.
          lol, does this sound familiar? Paranoia, anyone?

          When the time for the vote in the legislature came there were not enough state legislators present for the vote, so the measure died automatically.
          I better hope these legislators don't pull the same trick when important decisions need to be made...

            Reminds me of the burning of jewish books by the Nazis.

            Hell if any books need to dissapear it's the crap that Gerald Allen (article) reads giving him these disgraceful ideas.

              "I think it's an absolutely absurd bill," says Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
              Yes, it is. You can disagree with the lifestyle but you can't ban written works. They can write what they want. it's not the state's job to regulate what people read.

                It's sad when people are judged this way. We had a huge problem in Peterborough County in the late 1970's where a Church group wanted the books written by Margaret Laurence (The Diviners, The Stone Angel, A Jest of God etc) banned from the schools and libraries. One of our neighbours came to our door with one of the books and the "bad" passages underlined. She wanted my parents to sign a petition to remove these books. This lady kept quoting the Bible and telling them about the "horrible" parts in the book.
                My Mom asked he if she had read the entire book, the lady had not. Her Pastor had underlined the "horrible" parts and sent the congregation out to gather signatures.
                I've never seen my Mom get so mad. She tore a strip off that lady and threw her out of the house. Mom even went to the Board of Education and to City Hall to help defeat these petitions. We are regular Church going people, however we also believe you are free to read what you want and think with your brain, not someone elses.
                When I went to university I had Margaret Laurence for a tutorial leader in my 3rd year English class. What a wonderful lady and an excellent writer. Ms. Laurence was still upset years later that these "holy rollers" tried to ban her books.

                              they expect this to pass? I can't belive how ignorant some people are. Just the fact this bill is being presented is completely idiodic. No way this is going to pass.
