While the SB 777 referendum campaign continues to surge forward with increasing strength, the homosexual lobby is busy preparing schools for the new law's implementation.
Last week the Gay Straight Alliance, a homosexual rights group that promotes their agenda in schools, sent out an e-mail instructing their California chapters on how to integrate homosexual history into curriculum. In October-the same month that SB 777 was signed into law by Governor Schwarzenegger-each GSA school unit received a "campaign guide" entitled "Sharing Our Stories: The Fight for LGBTQ-Inclusive Curriculum". This guide was designed to assist students in lobbying their peers and school district to include homosexual, transgender, transsexual and bisexual figures in school textbooks.
In the guide students are told that insisting on LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) history in school instruction "helps to create schools where students feel safer and more supported." The GSA e-mail cites the California Safe Schools Coalition's assertion that students feel safer when LGBTQ history was included in their classroom instruction. Interestingly, the California Safe Schools Coalition was established in 2000 by AB 537 (Kuehl), the anti-discrimination law that purportedly ended harassment and discrimination of homosexual students.
When AB 537 was passed, the law made clear that it would not apply to school instruction or school activities. Obviously SB 777 was written to now include instruction and activities. These groups are already planning the curriculum before the law even takes effect.
In fact, curriculum inclusion is not sufficient. According to GSA, "tolerance education is an important first step, but we need to push further." Their goal is to "Infuse LGBTQ curriculum into history, social science, and literature classes."
Utilizing the slogan "Let's Set the Record Straight: History Isn't", students are given several action steps to take in accomplishing their "curriculum campaign" goal. These include monitoring classroom instruction to see if LGBTQ individuals are discussed or "made invisible"; taking over class to present LGBTQ history lessons; contacting textbook companies directly about including LGBTQ history; and lobbying school districts to change curriculum.
Students are also encouraged to promote LGBTQ history month in October. Keep in mind that schools are already participating in November's Transgender Day of Remembrance and April's Gay Day of Silence. To promote these "awareness" campaigns, GSA suggests reading "queer poets" poetry over the school intercom during homeroom and lunch. They also recommend organizing a school-wide assembly to hear about LGBTQ history.
The homosexual lobby is active and ambitious. They already have GSA units in many California schools that will oversee the implementation of SB 777.
As evidenced in the GSA e-mail, their agenda is inclusion in school instruction and activities, regardless of their public assertions of "streamlining" anti-discrimination policies in the law.
The SB 777 referendum is our opportunity to take a stand against the indoctrination of innocent school children.
No child should be discriminated against or harassed. But incorporating discussions of and instruction about controversial lifestyles in the classroom does not accomplish this goal. Instead, it undermines parental authority over children's moral upbringing.
We recognize the true agenda of such radical groups and implore you to join us in the campaign to Save Our Kids.
Sounds like the Nazi and Communist as they educated their students against all others.
And my tax money is paying for this crap. Vote to make all schools private.
does anyone know the history of the pedagogy of lesbian fisting as taught in Boston elementary schools?
and don’t forget to celebrate AIDS or you are a homophobic

Oh S+GSA are great at claiming someone who is no longer here to defend themselves, as one of their own. (They also claim GSA'a are student run and initiated by students, YEAH right!)
Sorry Mr. Homosexual, my son does not need to know where you put your winky, or where anyone else does either, in history or present day.
They claim a list of famous people who were homosexual. From what I’ve heard, it’s probably true that Michaelangelo was homosexual, but they’re also claiming Leonardo. In the 15th century, there was a rumor that Leonardo was homosexual. The matter was taken to court and was thrown out because there was no evidence. That constitutes evidence as far as the gay rights movement is concerned. They also claim that Abraham Lincoln, who was married, was homosexual. I have heard that Lincoln slept with a man, but you have to put this in the context of the 19th century when people shared beds. Who knows? The point is that if they claim somebody who has been dead for at least 150 years, no one can conclusively argue with them.
I remember an official from the Carter administration claiming in a radio interview that Lincoln’s homosexuality was the most important aspect of his life. It wasn’t being President or dealing with the issue of slavery; it was his homosexuality. At first I thought that the program was a comedy show, but this guy was serious.
One problem that the rest of us are dealing with is that they are extremely focused on their issue while most of their opposition is not. They’ll be defeated in the end; it’s a question of how much social disruption we’ll have before that happens.
Capitol Resource Institute is collecting signatures as we speak in order to overturn SB 777.
