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.
Another Moral Absolutes ping, right?
What--no spoiler alert? Thanks a lot for giving away the ending.
The Prince was a Democrat ! How fitting!
“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?????
Queen Charlatan, Prince Bammy, and Silky Pony are all in agreement...We need to “educate” our chuldrun to participate in our new amoral Socialist Republic and do what they are told.
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?
Would these Democrats object if the story pulled a “Braveheart” with the King throwing the little queer prince out the window?!
I guess I’ll see you at re-education camp if the dems win the whitehouse.
“insisting on marriage before having children” What business is it of government or politicians to insist on this?
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?
“Promise him anything...but give him our page.”
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.
