A gay teacher read a book published in 2003 to the third graders in his class at a North Carolina public elementary school that features two homosexual men getting married.
According to a local ABC television affiliate, parents angry over Omar Currie’s decision to read King and King to their children without informing them or seeking permission attended a meeting on Friday at Efland-Cheeks Elementary School to express their concerns.
Three complaints so far have been filed with the Orange County North Carolina School District, according to the ABC report, which included an interview with one of the parents who attended the meeting.
"Whether they're for it or against it, [parents] had a right to know,” said parent Rodney Davis, who has two children at the school. “That's the thing.”
“They had a right to know and no one knew," Davis said of parents not being informed about children’s book, classified as a fairy tale by reviewers.
“These are my children, these are not your children,” said Davis.
