Abdicating His Role as Parent

By Michael Medved

In a recent Democratic candidates' debate, John Edwards provided a shocking answer to a provocative question. He was asked about a recent controversy in Lexington, Massachusetts, where parents of second graders complained that their children had been exposed to a story in which two handsome princes get married to one another and then lived happily ever after.

Edwards not only indicated he would have been pleased to see his own second grader exposed to any and all pro-gay propaganda, but he offered a pathetic abdication of his role in providing values for his own kids:

"Even in second grade ... I don't want to impose my view. Nobody made me God. I don't get to impose on them what I believe is right."

A leader who's so shaky in his values that he won't try to convey them to his own kids can hardly expect to be an effective president who champions values for the nation at large.

(Emphasis added -- HH)

This kind of attitude smacks of communism; let the state raise and educate my children because they know what's best. Sick stuff.
