A law that actually requires teachers to tell a bald faced lie to their students by telling them that homosexual behavior is still a criminal act. The statute may still be on the books, but it's been unconstitutional to enforce it how many years now?

Way to go Alabama.

Does the new law also mention anything about teaching them that marrying your aunt is not a good idea?

Ah yes...Alabama, a state which ranks low in income, low in education, low in employment, and they are worried about homsexuality and abortion in textbooks! Hell, Alabama even still bans dildoes!! Oh well, what can we expect from a state that is run by the American Taliban wannabe's (aka "Evangelicals")?
