Will, you continue to mis-understand either the facts or conservatism. The
book in question, "Heather Has Two Mommies" is a teaching text. Thus
it represents the official position of the school and government for the
purpose of promoting deviant lifestyles as normal and acceptable. That is not
book banning. You liberals can't seem to see the difference between free
press and forced education. Why do you, as a liberal view teaching from the
text, "Heather Has Two Mommies" as free press then turn around and supress
teaching "The Holy Scriptures" in the same school? For the record I beleive
neither should be taught as school curriculum but neither should they be
banned for free reading if they have parental permission.
