Alabama Senate candidates support new state legislation aimed at LGBT issues ...

The majority of the Republican candidates for Alabama's Senate seat expressed support for Alabama's recent passage of legislation involving LGBT issues, including a similar amendment to Florida's so-called "non-profit legislation."

"Our schools should be focused on education rather than indoctrination," Katie Britt, the former head of staff for Senator Richard Shelby, whom she is now recruiting for.

Both Britt and candidate Mike Durant, a former Army helicopter pilot, claim they are putting the Alabama legislation in the way of bolstering Christian values in schools.

Of course, our youngest students should not be able to learn about sex in the classroom, but it's the responsibility of parents, not teachers, Britt said. We must reintroduce God back in our classrooms and return students to saying the pledge of allegiance every day while standing for our flag.

Rep. Mo Brooks, who is currently a candidate for the Senate, said that the legislation is pro-science and will protect Alabama from a left-wing ideology to lie to children.

"The amoral Left claims they own our kids and wants to lie to our children about biology and science," Brooks said. "My reply is simple: 'Hell no. Not in Alabama."

Friday, Gov. Kay Ivey signed the two bills into law.

One criminalizes gender-affirming surgery for trans youth, while another requires students use the toilet of the "biological sex" listed on their birth certificate, and in a similar amendment developed on Florida's law, prohibits classroom discussions. In kindergarten through fifth grade, one one criminalizes gender-affirming surgeries.

On behalf of Durant, a spokesperson said that the words "anti-trans" are the language of liberal indoctrination.

The liberal media would like nothing more than to indoctrinate our youth with the awakened belief, educate seven-year-old children to discover their "gender identity," and encourage kids on the playground to ask each other what their pronouns are.

The bill comes a year after Alabama approved a measure to remove its sex education guidelines. The state still maintains abstinence, but language about homosexuality was removed in 2021.
