A children's book about a lion raised by two men has been banned in Florida because right-wing activists suspect the men might be gay - despite nothing in the book suggesting they have any romantic relationship, according to a report.
According to the report, schools in Manatee County, a conservative community just south of Tampa, withdrew the book that's based on the true story about a pair of men who raise a lion in their London apartment, then are lovingly remembered by the animal when they go to Africa to see him years later. ...
Nothing in the book indicates the two men are in a same-sex relationship -- but activists speculated that they might be, which was enough for a complaint about the book.
