No vote was taken last week on the Alabama bill that prompted Patricia Todd's remark about hate. The measure, which may be voted on this week, would prohibit schools from spending public funds on books or other materials that recognize or promote homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle.
"This is not about hate," said the sponsor, Rep. Gerald Allen. "This is about our culture being under attack."
Todd disagreed, telling the House Education Committee: "We are your brothers and sisters, your aunts and uncles. We go to church with you. And the message I get from you is: 'We hate you.'"
