Bill Mandating Gay History in Schools Goes to Calif. Governor
Fox News ^ | July 5, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 07/05/2011 9:47:53 PM PDT by lbryce

California lawmakers on Tuesday sent the governor a bill that would make the state the first requiring public schools to include the contributions of gays and lesbians in social studies curriculum.

The bill, passed on a party-line vote, adds lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people as well as people with disabilities to the list of groups that schools must include in the lessons. It also would prohibit material that reflects adversely on gays.

Democratic Assemblyman Tom Ammiano of San Francisco says SB48 is crucial because of the bullying that happens to gay students. Republicans called it a well-intentioned but ill-conceived bill and raised concerns that it would indoctrinate children to accept homosexuality.

"This bill will require California schools to present a more accurate and nuanced view of American history in our social science curriculum by recognizing the accomplishments of groups that are not often recognized," said Assembly Speaker John Perez, the first openly gay speaker of the California Assembly.

The bill now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, who has not said whether he would sign it. Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a similar bill in 2006.

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, a Republican from Twin Peaks, said he was offended as a Christian that the bill was being used to promote a "homosexual agenda" in public schools.

think it's one thing to say that we should be tolerant," Donnelly said. "It is something else altogether to say that my children are going to be taught that this lifestyle is good."

California law already requires schools to teach about women, African Americans, Mexican Americans, entrepreneurs, Asian Americans, European Americans, American Indians and labor. The Legislature over the years also has prescribed specific lessons about the Irish potato famine and the Holocaust, among other topics.

Why stop there? How about the contributions of sadomasochists, pedophiles, adulterers, auto-eroticists, and those into bestiality? Heck there are probably a lot more degenerate life style choices we could put on a pedestal.

Gay history!

Now chidren, let us discuss ...

... what that little trap door was for in the back of the suits of armor...

... How you’ve heard of the “march on Selma”? We are going to discuss the sashay on Fire Island...

... How the Dykes of Holland REALLY got their name!

... Sir Gallahad’s ‘cute’ friend “Frank”

... Forget Adam and Eve, it was really “Adam and Steve”

Serious question.

When do we get the contributions of the S&M community in school textbooks? If we are going to have the contributions of people recognized based on a sex practice (because let’s face facts... Homosexuality without Anal/Oral sex is just celibacy between really good friends), I demand the contribution of all those with alternative sex practices be recognized equally to homosexuals.

It’s ‘fair’ isn’t it? We can’t ‘discriminate’ can we?

Too bad they don't teach reading, writing, math, science, or anything else that might actually be USEFUL in the real world. No wonder California's headed straight for disaster. Maybe saying "straight" is considered bullying homosexuals.

Teaching children about something as disgusting as homosexual acts—about lust and narcissism and idolatry is perverted and anyone in public schools that tries to normalize behavior that is created by emotional and/or physical abuse should be convicted of child abuse.

They are trying to pervert the worldview of normal children...make them believe abnormal is normal and undermine the Bible and freedom of religion. It will destroy respect for any Christian parents...mark them as bigots and haters.

This is a breach of the freedom of thought and conscience and the freedom of parents to shape their children’s worldview. You have government forcing a dysfunctional/atheist worldview on young children.

It is evil. It is so unconstitutional on all levels. Get your children out of those sewer schools that are destroying sexual morality in your kids....trying to create the “Brave New World” and an atheist/postmodern paradigm when this country was founded on Natural Law Theory—Modern philosophy and individual freedom—not group think and fascist government schools that believe in NO God and No Moral Absolutes. Our rights come from God and so we go by God’s standards of right and wrong...not some communist Hays, the homosexual who was sodomized as a boy and founded the homosexual movement to destroy the US from within by destroying morality. Very sick!

Absurd...not due to the ethnic groups, but all of this micromanaging by the legislature. Seems like so many mandates that things are going to be completely inflexible for schools.

If you teach actual history, that would interfere with the Orwellian rewriting.

” It also would prohibit material that reflects adversely on gays”

So we can’t tell the truth about “Bareback riding, promiscuity, high suicide rates, depression, high rates of drug use, HIV and other high rates of STD’s............... Don’t want the kids they want to recruit to get the full picture.

But since they are born that way, makes you wonder about the recruitment part.................unless that is just BS.

It’s going to be an utter whitewash, you just know. If it was an honest, candid overview (which includes documentation of disgusting pranks pulled by the lugg-butts) there would not be so much to complain about. If I were one of those kids, saw this, thought that there was no harm in going gay and indulged it, then learned the facts of life in the school of hard knocks, I would be quite irate at how I had been misled.

Perverts are now giving normals the law.No greater evidence of the superiority of one group over another exists than the ability to lay down the law-William Blackstone.

As the Gaul said to the Roman: "Woe to the conquered!"

If you care for your children pull them out of public school.

It also would prohibit material that reflects adversely on gays.

So the law suppresses the truth about homosexuality, especially the added risk to mental and physical health (see actuarial tables), and the added risk for the same to the entire population the laws are supposed to protect. If such a law is NOT evidence of disordered minds, I do not know what is!

Are not these zealots getting carried away with the imposition of their warped and twisted thinking on the rest of us? They are setting up the population for some serious failures and misery by defying common sense and God.

This is why so many kids hate “public” school. They know when they are being brain washed. They are well aware that they are being shoved a lot of crap. What normal person wants to be part of this agenda? People want freedom to think and express, not though crimes.

But will these Californicating Schools be teaching that these “contributions” by “gays” were mitigated by their choice of lifestyle /Orientation” or were the “contributions” merely an act of one gifted by their Creator and not the byproduct of their rebellion against God.

Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals
...

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

** 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” **

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

The gay groups that comprised the general command in the 1930’s bundeswehr and gestapo, did some really interesting things for the world. Innovation comes from putting round objects in unusual holes. Muslims use them as Kites. or at least gliders from minarets.

Well, when I was in high school, once upon a time, they actually admitted that penetrating what we should know is the wrong place in the human anatomy carried the highest risk of contracting HIV from an infected individual. They didn’t mention that it was overwhelmingly practiced by homosexual men, but then again, that’s probably enough to know for some individuals.

Additionally, I do remember perhaps when John R. Diggs wrote his paper about “Health Risks” I hope behavior for some has seriously changed, because the statistics didn’t look too good for plenty of them from the looks of it.
