Top Three Democrats Favor King & King Homosexual Fairy Tale
eagle forum ^ | november 2007

Posted on 11/22/2007 7:57:56 PM PST by Coleus

Recently in New Hampshire, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Sen. Barack Obama and former Sen. John Edwards affirmed that King & King, a homosexual fairy tale, was appropriate for 2nd-graders. King & King is a picture book about a prince seeking a princess to marry. To his mother's surprise, he decides to marry one of the princesses' brothers instead. The book has caused controversy in districts where teachers have read it to elementary school children. In Massachusetts, parents protested the book without success even though the state requires parental notification before sex ed lessons.

"Same-sex marriage is legal in Massachusetts but most of you oppose it. Would you be comfortable having this story read to your children as part of their school curriculum?" asked Allison King of New England Cable News at the debate.  "Yes, absolutely," was Edwards's resounding reply. "I want my children to understand everything about the difficulties that gay and lesbian couples are faced with every day. . . . I don't want to impose my view. Nobody made me God," he explained. Edwards did promise that although he opposes gay marriage, he will extend to homosexual couples all benefits available to married heterosexual ones, will do away with the Defense of Marriage Act and will abolish the U.S. military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

Obama agreed with Edwards and added his signature rhetoric of hope, reason and tolerance opposing fear, conflict and division.  "I really respect what both John and Barack said," affirmed Sen. Clinton. She did not answer the question directly, but urged respect for other people and their choices, and passage of the federal Hate Crimes bill. "We haven't been able to get it passed, and it is an important measure to send a message that we stand against hatred and divisiveness. And I think that, you know, that's what the Democratic Party stands for in contrast, all too often, to the other side."

Republican primary candidate Mitt Romney criticized the Democrats' responses. "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." Romney has already sparred with Obama on sex ed and the appropriateness of sex ed topics for kindergarten students.

What--no spoiler alert? Thanks a lot for giving away the ending.

“I want my children to understand everything about the difficulties that gay and lesbian couples are faced with every day. . . . I don’t want to impose my view. Nobody made me God,” he explained...............


This is a book for 2nd graders. Do we really want 2nd graders to understand everything about the difficulties that gay and lesbian couples are faced with every day?????? Is this really a subject for 2nd graders in the first place?????

Haven’t read this book, but wasn’t the prime responsibility of a royal heir in the old days to “carry on the line?”

Wouldn’t his “marrying” a guy make that kind of difficult?

There’s a sequel already!

“King & King & Family”

“Join newlyweds King Lee and King Bertie on their journey into the noisy jungle. As they float down a river, the kings are greeted by wild animal families, but the royal travelers suspect that something more significant awaits them in the trees. The King & King soon discover that there’s no adventure more wonderful than starting a family.”

The Democrats are so easy to defeat if only the Republicans had some spine and IMAGINATION. Half the posters on this forum could write the ads they could win with using the Democrats’ own words and deeds. So why don’t they?

Maybe the Princesses' brother was the only one who could wear the size 12 glass slipper.

-Or-

The princess missed the midnight deadline and her "fairy" godmother turned her into a poofter.

There are some Fractured Fairy Tale possibilities here, but I don't think Barney Frank would appreciate the humor.

Little vague on biology, are we?

BTW, there were quite a few homos in the old European royal families. In Britain Edward II, James I and (possibly) Richard the Lionheart spring to mind. All except Richard did their marital duty and produced an heir.

Although one wonders if the Queen might have gotten a little extramarital assistance in some cases.

So here’s the question that intrigues me. They’re obviously more than a little gray on this one, so who is it they are pandering to? The mainstream and the religious by opposing outright gay marriage, or the gay movement within the Democratic party? Are they opposing gay marriage just for show to avoid giving GOP ammo, or are they tacitly, personally approving it because they want to seem liberal enough? I *suspect* the former, but the latter wouldn’t surprise me either.

Ya, he's just their father. That's certainly no reason to try to give your children some guidance or pass on your values to them. Of course, that's the way they plan to run the country.

Roflmao! That made my night. I can't stop laughing. I think you ought to send that to Garden State Equality Group!

Seriously though, if they even try to read that book to Sassy or talk any gay bs, she is going to raise her hand & ask when they are going to teach the children about dying from AIDS. Nobody should be pushing that gay agenda on children in the lower grades at all. I keep a close eye on my school & so far they have said that theres no plan to introduce gay bs into the 2nd grade. I don't trust them though so I told my daughter to ask that should the topic ever come up.

King & King is a picture book about a prince seeking a princess to marry. To his mother's surprise, he decides to marry one of the princesses' brothers instead

Interesting. Allow me to fill in the rest of the story from a historical perspective:

"Since the purpose of royal marriage was invariably to seal and solidify relations between the two kingdoms and to produce and heir for the thrown, scandal erupted in the court of the foreign kingdom."

"The foreign king took offense not only at the hideous insult to his daughter, but particularly at the seduction of his only son, the man who would have one day assumed the thrown held by his family for three centuries."

"While the king, who loved his son, was willing to overlook and forgive him for being weak, the court and the people of the kingdom were outraged. To placate them and to quell a peasant's revolt, he imprisoned his own son."

"To exact revenge, he sent out his personal royal guard to overtake the prince who he had sent aways from his kingdom in anger. The royal guard was under instruction to assassinate the prince, but to make it look like bandits."

"The attack worked exactly as planned, and the deviant prince died with 36 inches of fine steel through his neck. However his father's spy network had learned of the foreign king's plan. They brought news of it back to the king just as he received word of his son's murder."

"Fearing repercussions from his own people, the king could not allow the story of his deviant son to spread. Rather than launch an outright attack that would inevitably draw embarrassing questions from the court, the king ordered his spys to assassinate the foreign king."

"Shortly aftwards, word arrived that the foreign king and his taster had died in their sleep from a slow acting, tasteless poison. The king rejoiced and sent 3 legions of troops to help keep order while chaos took over the foreign kingdom. 'A fine dowry that will make! And who needs a wedding?' smiled the king. "

"A few months later word reached the king that the foreign king's son had committed suicide while in prison. There was never and inquiry made as to how he achieved the multiple stab wounds to the back. The king adopted the foreign king's daughter, sending her to the distant countryside "for her own safety". He then sent his cousin to rule in the absence of the royal family in his name."

"The king, sat contentedly in his throne room reflected on the events that had occurred. A shapely servant strolled pass the throne and caught his eye. 'I'll need more sons' he thought to himself as he followed her. 'It's good to be the king!' he thought as she turned and smiled.

THE END

I can be just as ruthless as the left should it prove necessary. They want to shatter our children's childhood. I can shatter their illusions just as easily. >:D

+King & King & Family (PreS-Gr 2)-In this follow-up to King & King (Tricycle, 2002), King Lee and King Bertie have just married and embark on a honeymoon. As they fly off to jungle country, the two men soon discover that their cat has stowed away in their suitcase.

The travelers happily tramp through the wilderness and paddle down a river, observing the wildlife as they go. Before long, they have a strange feeling that something is following them. Upon returning home, they discover another stowaway in their suitcase-this time it's a young girl from the jungle, whom they joyfully adopt and everyone lives happily ever after.

The mixed-media collage illustrations are colorful with lots to look at on each page-perhaps too much, as some of the spreads are a bit cluttered. Bertie's travel diary is reproduced on the book's centerfold, hinting at the surprise ending. The text is brief and fun, and the relationships are treated matter-of-factly.

However, children may wonder why the men do not try to find the little girl's family, or check to see if anyone is searching for her. All in all, this story about a nontraditional family is a bit heavy-handed...(reviewed by children's librarian)

Under a future Clinton “hate crimes” statute, a parent would be subject to civil and criminal penalties for opting their child out of reading “King and King”. Fines, imprisonment and lost custody of that child would result. Bet on it. That is where the left is heading.
