05 Jan Same-Sex Marriage: Coming To Your Neighborhood Library
During the campaign to pass Prop. 8 in California, Tony Perkins, of the Family Research Council, produced a video warning of the dangers of legalizing Same-Sex marriage. He shared that if Same-Sex marriage is legalized, then it must be taught as normal, acceptable and moral behavior in public schools. Mr. Perkins then interviewed a Massachusetts family whose kindergartner was given a book that introduced the child to homosexual families. When the boy’s father, David Parker, went to the school to protest the homosexual literature he was told that there was nothing he could do. His young son had no choice but learn about homosexuality while attending public school (click here to watch the video).
The right of parents to teach their children is one reason why marriage matters. It is another evidence that shows that sexual freedom will trump religious and parental rights if it is legalized. The book that the kindergartner was given is one example of gay books that teach young minds about the unnatural behavior of homosexuality, here are some others that are waiting to get picked up at your local library:
King & King: One day, a queen decides she’s had enough of ruling, and it’s time for her son to find a suitable princess and get married. “When I was your age, I’d been married twice already,” she grumbles. The prince agrees, though he’s never much cared for princesses… and none of the ones who show up manage to change his opinion. Then in walks the last princess, beautiful golden-haired Princess Madeleine–and her brother, Prince Lee. It’s love at first sight, and the two princes, known as King & King, live happily ever after. The final panel shows the two Kings kissing, their lips hidden behind a red heart. King & King has been translated into several languages, including Spanish. There is also a sequel, King & King & Family. (Intended for ages 3 and up)
And Tango Makes Three: A “true story” about two boys who fall in love and start a family. The two boys are penguins, Roy and Silo, and they do everything the other penguins do: “They bowed to each other. And walked together. They sang to each other. And swam together. Wherever Roy went, Silo went too.” When the two try to hatch a baby penguin, devotedly sitting on a rock to warm it, their keeper gives them an egg to foster. “Roy and Silo knew just what to do. They moved the egg to the center of their nest. Every day they turned it, so each side stayed warm.” And one day, “out came their very own baby!” Named Tango, “because it takes two to make a Tango,” the chick is the very first penguin in the zoo to have two daddies. (Intended for ages 4 and up.)
Mom and Mum Are Getting Married!: When Rosie’s mom and mum decide to get married, the main conflict is whether Rosie will get to be a flower girl and whether she and her brother Jack are responsible enough to take care of the wedding rings. (Intended for ages 4-10)
