Singapore has ordered the destruction of a children’s book inspired by a real-life story of two male penguins raising a baby chick in New York’s zoo after it was deemed inappropriate.

The National Library Board, which runs 26 public libraries in Singapore, pulled the book from the shelves this weekend and said it would “pulp” the copies of three titles, citing complaints their content goes against Singapore’s family values.

They have laws against gay sex but rarely use them? Now the Authorities are trying to appease religious fundamentalists? Save yourselves, little penguins!
