It looks like the Tennessee bill, as amended, no longer requires schools to let students make announcements over the PA or speak at events (but if they do, there must be a "neutral" procedure for choosing students, and religious content is OK).

Amusingly, "The provisions of this act shall comply with ... any applicable state or federal laws, the Constitution of Tennessee and the United States Constitution." Yeah right!

I read that a Tennessee bill which actually helps students' religious proselytizing in public schools, including anti-gay bullying, recently passed the legislature by veto-proof margins.

Tennessee Passes Bill Allowing LGBT Students To Be Bullied In The Name of ‘Religious Freedom’ (The New Civil Rights Movement)

Sentinent did Tennessee recently pass a bill similar to the Miss.bill?

I read somewhere Tenn. had passed a similar bill & at the time it was waiting for the Governors' signature.

I would appreciate feed back. Thanks !!

Sentient, I'll bring the marshmallows if someone else will bring the chocolate bars.  (If we can't build a campfire, we can always nuke them....verrrry carefully!)

I was homesick for a glimpse of the Pacific as much as turned off by the idea of a prison tour.

Opting to see Gidget was definitely the better choice!

My introduction to the charms of Alabama was opening my suitcase in Birmingham, and being confronted with a cockroach that could only have come from the last town we had played - Montgomery.

Plus, the state government in Montgomery offered our company a tour of the state prison as an "entertainment."  My roommates and I went to see "Gidget" instead.  THAT's how long ago it was.

Steph, as far ad I know, no protests. I imagine there will be something.

Mississippi and Alabama have so little to offer. Anti immigrant feeling is also very strong. I think the should combine the 2 states, throuw in Arkansas as a boobie prize, and name their region 'Xenophobia". Except they could neither spell nor pronounce it.
