Ignoramus of the Month Award for April 2005

My first "Ignoramus of the Month" award goes to....

Alabama state Rep. Gerald Allen (R-Tuscaloosa)

The honorable gentleman from Alabama wants to ban public funding for any books with gay characters or content to protect children from the “homosexual agenda.” At one point shakespeare was on his hit list.

For those books already in the state’s public and university libraries, Allen suggests that people “dig a big hole and dump them in and bury them.”

“[P]lays glamorizing homosexuality, books advocating gay and lesbian activities, public financial support for activities organized by homosexuals have created an undue influence on the children in our schools,” Allen said in a statement. “Whether inborn or acquired, [homosexuality] is still, like all sexual contact apart from marriage, immoral.”

The only thing scarier than this ignoramus is the ignoramuses who elected him - so we'll give them honorable mention.
