Book Banning in Alabama

In Alabama, lawmakers are saying that homosexuality is unnacceptable. How does this connect to books? Well, to “help stop” the so called “homosexual problem” they have decided to pass a law to ban books written by gay authors, some of the books set to be banned being classics, such as Shakespeare. After criticism, they have decided to exempt classics. ¬†Librarians became afraid that lawmakers would patrol the shelves of their libraries, though the first amendment clearly states that banning does amount to censorship, and is therefore illegal.

This bill had fewer legislators then needed to carry the bill through, so it was not carried out.
