Jerry Brown signs LGBT school textbook bill
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 7/14/11 | Wyatt Buchanan, Chronicle Sacramento Bureau

Posted on 07/14/2011 12:37:15 PM PDT by SmithL

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a controversial bill to include the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans in California's public school textbooks.

After the governor signed the bill introduced by Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, he released a statement that said, "History should be honest. This bill revises existing laws that prohibit discrimination in education and ensures that the important contributions of Americans from all backgrounds and walks of life are included in our history books. It represents an important step forward for our state, and I thank Sen. Leno for his hard work on this historic legislation."

The major contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans is to mandate laws for contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.

I was unaware that homosexuals and Pacific Islanders were omitted from textbooks. Maybe the new books will put "Homosexual" or "Samoan" after their names.

Maybe we should put "Jewish, Heterosexual, White, Male" after Einstein's name. Or "Otherly-abled, White, Southern, Female, probably Heterosexual" after Helen Keller's name.

These people think that they are wise, but they are literally playing with fire. OMG have mercy upon them!

But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.
Mat 18:6

Beware that you don’t look down on any of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father.
Mat 18:10

John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Wayne Williams, Henry Lee Lucas, Arthur Gary Bishop...

Somehow I don’t think the homosexual drive of these prolific serial killers will be in the textbooks.

How many Christian and/or conservative government teachers will willing open the government schools in late August and **willingly** implement, aid, and support this horrific agenda? How many will hand out the textbooks and complete the assignments? Hm?

( Just wondering)

Oh!...And...Any Christian and/or conservative who thinks they can sneak in a little opposing thought into their classroom are, indeed, teaching an important lesson. They are teaching the children that conservatives and Christians are SNEAKY!

Sounds like a variation of the old Yakov Smirnov Russia jokes, "In California, fruits harvest you."

The following applies to ALL government teachers in a GENERAL manner and is NOT NOT NOT directed at any individual here on Free Republic:

Haven't we read many times, here on Free Republic, that there are many “good” teachers in our government K-12 schools. Really? Is that so? Then how can the following be “good”?

Every day, ALL government teachers **willingly** go into government schools and **willingly** take a paycheck for teaching their students to think and reason godlessly. The government schools BY LAW are godlessly secular in their worldview. The children must learn to think and reason godlessly merely to cooperate in the classroom and do assignments.

No one is holding a gun to any government teacher's head as they work to undermine the parents and the child's faith.

Also...Let's go further. Again, how can the following be “good”?

**ALL** ( Yes! **every**!) government schools in this nation are socialist-funded, compulsory for all those whose parent's can't ransom them, and managed by the collectivist voting mob. Merely by attending children learn to be comfortable with taking money from their neighbor for a service their parents want for tuition-free. Well?...If government can give “free” school, why not a thousand other wants and needs.

Why on earth would any “good” teacher agree to uphold, establish, and run a system that teaches children to be comfortable with socialism, government compulsion, and submission to the voting collectivist mob? No one is holding a gun to their heads when they do this. No one is threatening them or their families with harm as they collect their paychecks.

The TSA airport searches and the coming Death Panels are not an accident. They are a result of generations of citizens being conditioned in government schools by government teachers ( who seem so sweet and love their cats) to placidly accept government compulsion.

Yes, some Christian and/or conservative teachers will say that they are trying to sneak in some Christian and/or conservative principles into their classroom. Well! They **are** teaching an important lesson. They are teaching children that Christians and conservatives are timid and SNEAKY!

Let's use an extreme example. The Nazi concentration camps.

Would a “good” German WILLINGLY agree to work in the Nazi concentration camps because he might sneak a few crumbs to the prisoners once in a while? Or... would the **truly** “good” German join the resistance and work his guts out to help as many prisoners to escape as possible, and strive bravely and valiantly to permanently close down the concentration camps?

So... The genuinely ***good** teachers are NOT working for the godless, socialist-funded, compulsory, and voter mob managed government schools. They are working their guts out to see they are completely closed down. And...They are doing their best politically and culturally to see that children have other alternatives. They are warning parents not to send their children into the government schools.

Please remember that when you meet dear Mrs. Smilely ( the teacher who loves her cat) in church or at the supermarket, that every working day she is establishing, supporting, and upholding government schools that teach children to think godlessly, to be comfortable with taking their neighbor's money for “free” stuff, and to submit meekly to the crushing heel of the collectivist voting mob. None of that can that be “good”!

Finally....There have NEVER been “good” government schools or “good” government teachers. From their inception in the mid-1800s to early 1900s, government K-12 schools have been socialist-funded, compulsory, and managed by the collectivist voting mob. Why should we be surprised that one or two generations later that we had Woodrow Wilson, the IRS, the federal reserve, unions, feminism, direct election of senators, and Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal?

Yes, the government schools, at first offered up a lukewarm and generic Protestantism. We know what Christ does with the lukewarm. He spits them out of His mouth! By my grandmother's day ( born 1894), the government schools were godlessly secular with a sprinkle of prayer in the morning.

Conclusion #1 : There is not now, and never has been even one good government school! There is not now, and never has been, a good government teacher!

Conclusion #2: If Islam takes hold in this nation, it is because government schools, like the Death Eaters, have sucked the souls out of our nation's children and their parents.

The above applies to ALL government teachers in a GENERAL manner and is NOT NOT NOT directed specifically at any individual here on Free Republic.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Just by their presence ( or failure to be fired) these conservative and Christian teachers WILL teach two important lessons!

1) Christians and conservatives are hypocrites for teaching a lifestyle they KNOW is harmful to children.

2)Christians and conservatives will sell their souls for a paycheck and a pension.

What about **every** government teacher that **WILLINGLY** takes a paycheck for upholding, supporting, and establishing the very government school system that pollutes the minds of children with this poison?

It is too depraved for my taste.

Not to mention bakrupt, expensive, and more. The sad part is that there’s plenty of good history of the place in the past, but a lot of that appears to have been lost to anti-western politics parading as “progressive” or free. Permissiveness to illegal aliens isn’t free, permissiveness to who knows what else isn’t free, everything has a price tag. Funny how the basic scientific statement “No Free Lunch” is actually true, and California is one decent example.

Thank heaven, all of my children have graduated from school.

By the way I believe Leno, the bills author, wanted the possession of "small amounts" of child pornography legalized.

You sure enjoy posting your pre-generated rant against all teachers, don't you?

People hated Arnold but he vetoed a lot of insanity like this during his time as governor.

This is what happens when you have a unchecked one-party Dem state.

For some reason your posts #22 and #23 did not show up in my ping list. That is odd.

I recommend the following essay:

It's not Personal it's Institutional by Wendy McElroy

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2747980/posts

"My husband is a good man!"

The indignation came from an email acquaintance to whom I had explained one reason I reject the public-school system — namely, rather than educate children, it indoctrinates them and teaches unthinking obedience. As it happened, her husband was a grade-school teacher.

My position is not personal. The analysis of the role an individual plays when he enlists in the state apparatus is not tantamount to a condemnation of his motives or character. It would be far easier if it were. I would deeply appreciate it if all agents of the state twirled their mustaches, wore black hats, and laughed like the Wicked Witch of the West. They would be easier to spot and pleasant to dislike. As it is, I understand that good people with fine intentions become schoolteachers and policemen. That doesn't change the role they play by accepting those positions.

To use an very extreme example, if a person were to willing work for, uphold, and establish Nazi concentration camps, the results would be horrific. It does not matter whether or not the motives of the individual are honorable. The institution of Nazism and their concentration camps were utterly immoral and corrupt!

So?...If the foundations of government schools are corrupt then it does not matter that those **willingly** taking a paycheck from the system are nice people, grow flowers, and have cute cats.
