LIFESITE — SANFORD, Florida, February 15, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A teacher in Florida is being questioned by school authorities for reading a gay-affirming book to elementary-school students.

A so-far unnamed teacher read “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver presents A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo” without previously informing school authorities or parents, according to local TV reports. It is a parody presented by British comedian John Oliver that depicts a homosexual rabbit who lives at the White House and seeks to be united with another male rabbit.

Penned by Jill Twiss, the 2018 book is a parody of a book written by Vice President Mike Pence‘s daughter about a pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo. Parents complained about Oliver’s book to authorities at Seminole County School District in Sanford, Florida, which prompted an internal investigation. Wendy Curry, a parent, told WFTV, “It’s not something that should be in an elementary school,” adding, “That’s for me to decide at home — what I want to teach my child and what I feel they are able to handle.”

In the version published by Oliver, which is available at Walmart, Bundo the bunny falls in love with male rabbit that he eventually “marries.” The book was read to students at Pinecrest Elementary School in Sanford, which is close to Disneyworld in nearby Orlando.
