MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama lawmakers are moving to strike anti-gay denunciation from the state’s sex preparation law. The stream law says students are to be taught that homosexuality is a lifestyle that’s not “acceptable to the ubiquitous public.”
The Senate Education Policy Committee voted Wednesday to undo that phrase, promulgation the check to the full Senate.
Republican Sen Tom Whatley, the bill’s sponsor, says the check clears up denunciation in the law.
Although sex preparation is discretionary in Alabama’s open schools, a 1992 law sets mandate for programs.
The check also deletes a requirement that students learn homosexual control is a rapist offense. That was a anxiety to Alabama’s anti-sodomy law, which has given been ruled unconstitutional.
