Gerald Allen is still at it.

From CBS:

Republican Alabama lawmaker Gerald Allen says homosexuality is an unacceptable lifestyle. As CBS News Correspondent Mark Strassmann reports, under his bill, public school libraries could no longer buy new copies of plays or books by gay authors, or about gay characters.

"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."

So what actually counts as censorship, Rep. Allen?  Sheesh.

Happily, the Editor's Note at the end of the article reads:

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 doubt that we've heard the last of him, unfortunately.
