Bill to remove racist language will likely die

Roy Moore and the Putatively Christian Coalition, you might recall, campaigned against an Amendment to the Alabama constitution that would have removed racist language from the constitution. They claimed that the amendment would allow "activist judges" to raise taxes because it removed the horrific claim that there's no right to a public education.

And now, John Rogers is blocking a new bill because to let a modified version through "would be admitting that Roy Moore was right". Now, I don't want to do anything to make Roy feel even better about himself than he already does. But this is stupid. And just Rogers being Rogers.
