According to the Birmingham News, State Representative Gerald Allen has introduced a bill that seeks to ban from Alabama schools and libraries all books that "recognize or promote homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle."

What to do with all the current copies of The Color Purple, Giovanni's Room, Brideshead Revisited, or local community theatre favorite, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof? Burn them, just like the Nazis used to do?

Heavens, no! Rep. Allen has a better idea: "I guess we dig a big hole and dump them in and bury them."

Dig a big hole and put things in it? What a homoerotic suggestion, Gerald! Perhaps books aren't the only thing Gerald wants to "bury."
