he doth protest too much

Alabama Nutzi republican radical Gerald Allen thinks homosexuality is unacceptable. He is proposing a bill that bans books by gay authors and also requires that novels with gay protagonists and textbooks that suggest homosexuality is natural to be outlawed. When asked what he would do with all of the books that would be affected, Allen is quoted as saying "I guess we dig a big hole and dump them in and bury them." He has defended this idea on what he claims to be moral grounds, saying "I don't look at it as censorship, I look at it as protecting the hearts and souls and minds of our children."

Apparently Allen feels that if awareness of the existence of homosexuality is restricted, children won't "choose" to be gay. That would seem to indicate that Mr. Allen was himself tempted by the allure of homosexuality when he found out about it, and wants to save others from the horrible conflicts that rage within his heart. After all, if being homosexual is not a choice, then Mr. Allen has nothing to worry about since neither he nor anyone else can catch it. However, if homosexuality is a choice, then it is clearly a choice that Gerald Allen thinks about every day and he is so weak at controlling himself that he wants to make the the state of Alabama responsible for keeping him away from his lust for sex with other men.
