John Edwards on parenting. Sheesh!

The moderator at Dartmouth College's recent debate asked the Dems if they'd be comfortable in having the "gay fairy tale" (I'm not making this up) called "King & King" read to their children in school.

John Edwards replied, "yes, absolutely!"

“I don’t want to make that decision on behalf of my children,” he said. “I want my children to be able to make that decision on behalf of themselves, and I want them to be exposed to all the information, even in — did you say second grade? Second grade might be a little tough, but even in second grade to be exposed to all those possibilities, because I don’t want to impose my view. Nobody made me God.”

Nobody made Edwards God, of course, but God made him a parent. Parents are supposed to impose their views, aren't they?
