Gov. approves 'sexual brainwashing bill'

I've written my 2 cents worth under the news article, so please read on...

Gov. approves 'sexual brainwashing bill' (
Becky Yeh - OneNewsNow California correspondent - 7/15/2011 7:15:00 AM
California's governor has signed into law legislation that requires the state's public schools to teach on the contributions of lesbian, "gay," bisexual and transgender individuals.

Yesterday, Gov. Jerry Brown signed S.B. 48, making California the first state in the country to pass such legislation. The law, authored by homosexual Senator Mark Leno of San Francisco, requires that textbooks be re-written to include information about LGBT Americans and present them in a positive light.

Commentators warn that the measure, which requires no parental notification and does not allow parents to opt their children out, will affect students as you as six years old. But Earl DeVries, a former candidate for state Senate, explains that other schools will be affected as well because California is one of the states that purchases the most textbooks.

"I feel sorry for those states because we've not done a good job defending our families and our children, and we have the wrong kind of people in Sacramento," he laments. "And this is the consequence of our lack of involvement."

Brown announced in a written statement that the bill "revises existing laws that prohibit discrimination in education," and he urged that "history should be honest." The governor further assured that the law represents an important step forward for the state of California, but DeVries disagrees.

"Well, it really isn't," he contends. "Of course, their ultimate agenda is to normalize homosexuality, [but] the Lord says that's wrong. And we are going to be suffering the consequences of those decisions now."

Randy Thomasson, president of, helped lead the opposition to S.B. 48. He reports that it is California's eighth school sexual indoctrination law that forces immorality on K-12 students. He also points out that the bill prohibits teachers and textbooks from "telling children that homosexuality has the highest rate of HIV/AIDS and other STDs, higher cancer rates, and earlier deaths."

So he encourages parents to take their kids out of the public education system and explore different options, including church schools and home school.

Ok, here is my 2 cents worth.

Why is this needed?

The LGBT community has always been included in education.  How could they not be?  The fact of their sexuality has as little bearing on their contributions to society as the fact that George Washington actually made it home occassionaly to sleep with his wife!
Who can studied history and not learn about Alexander the Great?  Who could study art without the wonder of Michelangelo?  Will you ever look at a Campbell soup can again without thinking of Andy Warhol?  Oscar Wilde's plays make me need to wear Depends.  Leonard Bernstein touched so many genres of music over 50 decades.  And even if you don't know who Freddie Mercury was, trust me, he was a musical genius!
All this to say that LGBT individuals have always had a part in history and will continue to do so. 

I'm all for the fact that "history should be honest," but being honest does not necessary condone or promote.  I can be honest about Hitler and what he did without condoning it.  We can study Abraham Lincoln's policy concerning the Native Americans and not agree with it.  I can learn and appreciate the talents of Gordon Ramsey without promoting his choice of language usage. 

Obviously, I can teach about Alexander the Great (which I have) without promoting or agreeing with the LGTB agenda.  This legislation is clearly a promotion of agenda and not education. 

I'm so glad I get to home educate!
