Oklahoma City Gay Book Ban Creates Tensions
A report in Yahoo News follows the developing situtation over banning gay-themed books for the library system:
The Oklahoma City Metropolitan Library System Board met to consider whether the book "King and King," which features a story about a prince marrying another prince, should be placed in the children's section or in another part of Oklahoma City's downtown library. Board members allowed hundreds of community members -- including public officials and activists -- to speak at the meeting but limited them to 30 seconds each because of the number of people in attendance.
