King and Kingmaker

, Deborah Lambert, Leave a comment

If the top-tier Democratic presidential candidates had their way, the homosexual fairy tale book, King and King, would be deemed appropriate for all second graders.

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards recently stated their opinions about the controversial book in New Hampshire.

[Before dropping out of the race] John Edwards noted that despite his opposition to gay marriage, he was firmly in favor of his children understanding “the difficulties that gay and lesbian couples are faced with every day.”
Obama agreed with Edwards, and Clinton reiterated her support for passage of the federal hate crimes bill.
