Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Prince Falls in Love

(Fox News) - A pilot project in 14 British schools has some four to eleven year olds reading a book called "King and King," in which a prince falls in love with three different princesses before falling in love with a man.

Another book called "And Tango Makes Three," which is in some U.S. school libraries, tells the true story of two male penguins who are in love, and a zookeeper who gives them an egg to hatch and nurture.

The director of the "No Outsiders" project says it is needed to combat what she calls the "absolutely massive" problem of bias against homosexuals among British schoolchildren.

But conservative Christians and Muslims are united in opposition to the effort — which one official for the Muslim Council of Britain calls "morally unacceptable."
