NEW HAMPSHIRE, October 2, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - So far the leading Democratic presidential candidates seem to be in a mad race to outdo each other in a quest for the "gay" vote. In the most recent Democrat debate held on September 27th in New Hampshire, Clinton, Obama and Edwards once again catered to homosexual activists in responding to a question regarding pro-homosexual curriculum being introduced in public schools as early as the second grade.
The pivotal question focused on a homosexual "fairy-tale" that was read to a class of seven-year-olds in Massachusetts. The story, selected as reading for a class on marriage, told the story of a young prince who rejects the pressures of his family to find a bride and instead chooses to marry a fellow prince. The two men marry, kiss (complete with an image in the book) and, as typical in fairy tales, live happily ever after.
The presidential candidates were asked if they would object to their children being read such a story in school. All three leading contenders - Obama, Clinton and Edwards - have previously indicated that they fully support same-sex civil unions but stop short of endorsing full recognition of same-sex "marriage".
John Edwards first answered the debate question saying that he would definitely be fine with such reading material although he admitted that "it might be a little tough" for second graders. Edwards claims that he does not want his views to influence his children's views. "I want my children to be able to make that decision on behalf of themselves, and I want them to be exposed to all the information, even in - did you say second grade? Second grade might be a little tough, but even in second grade to be exposed to all those possibilities, because I don't want to impose my view. Nobody made me God."
Obama stated that his opinions were very much in line with those of former Senator Edwards' and said that his outspoken wife had already made his children "aware" of homosexuality. "One of the things I want to communicate to my children is not to be afraid of people who are different. ."
In true Clinton form, the New York Senator side-stepped a real answer to the question of whether she would be comfortable having the story read to her own children answering instead that it should be left to the individual judgment of the parents involved.
"Obviously, it is better to try to help your children understand the many differences that are in the world. And that goes far beyond sexual orientation. So I think that this issue of gays and lesbians and their rights will remain an important one in our country."
Ex-Massachusetts governor and current Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney issued a statement after the debate condemning the answers of all three Democratic candidates.
"Not one candidate was uncomfortable with young children learning about same-sex marriage in the second grade. This is a subject that should be left to parents, not public school teachers. We need to strengthen our families by passing a federal marriage amendment and also insisting on marriage before having children. Change in Washington requires Democrats with the courage to stand up to their ultra liberal base and do what's right for our children."
In a previous debate, the Democratic presidential candidates were grilled with only questions pertaining to "gay issues" such as gay "marriage", the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and the military "don't ask, don't tell" policy. As previously reported by LifeSiteNews.com, at that August debate, the participating candidates, even the guarded Senator Clinton, seemed intent on outdoing each other in the eyes of the largely gay audience in toeing the line of total homosexual orthodoxy, with the minor exception of the gay doctrine of same-sex "marriage".

I find this out & out disgusting.
Homo perversion is a LEARNED BEHAVIOR
Well, I wouldn’t call it a fairy tail. People might get the wrong idea.
A fairy tale in more ways than one.
What no mention about aids, health issues or the squabbling etc?...I think if they plan on reading this bs to the children they could at least be honest. Tell the children that they can't have babies because they are both men & will be adopting (God forbid) & that it isn't a normal happy ending. GRRR
I always respond to this kind of crap the same way and I usually get put in time out for a while.
So how are you going to feel when you come home from and evening out and some old queer is trying to prok your teenage son?
Homosexuality is immoral, perverse and wrong.
Anyone know the name of the book?
“Homosexuality is immoral, perverse and wrong.”
Under every conceivable set of circumstances.
Thinking about the stinging defeat such pro-homosexual legislation like homosexual marriage meets when put to a vote of the people. It stands to reason that the majority of people may tolerate such lifestyles between adults but reject it when it comes to family affairs. Children are family affairs, therefor every effort should be made to squarely hang the homosexual agenda around the necks of these liberal socialists.
The Fairy Tale of Two Democratic Princes maybe a good title. No ,I don’t know it yet but I sure plan to find out so I can alert my daughter’s teacher she isn’t allowed to read/hear it.
Shaking my head with disgust.
The title is King and King
You got it. THere was a another thread on it here. It also sparked a court case in MA.
