[FPN] – The Golden State’s governor has signed into law pro-homosexual education legislation that is likely to have widespread and long-standing effects on America’s public schools. On October 12, 2007, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Senate Bill 777, which forbids any materials in California’s public schools that “promote discriminatory bias” toward forms of sexual deviancy, including homosexuality and bisexuality.
California is one of the nation’s largest purchasers of textbooks, which is prompting pro-family activists to predict that Gov. Schwarzenegger’s decision may project California’s radical, pro-homosexual influence much farther than the state’s borders. SB 777 will require any textbook purchased by the state to meet the new standards of “non-discrimination” against “sexual orientation.” Textbook publishers are unlikely to create separate versions of the same textbooks for states without such pro-homosexual legislation, resulting in scenarios where schoolchildren in states like Iowa, Texas, and Alabama learn how the deadly practice of homosexuality is both “natural” and “good”.
The following are excerpts from an October 13, 2007 article appearing on WorldNetDaily.com.
“’Mom’ and ‘Dad’ banished by California”
WorldNetDaily.com – October 13, 2007
“Mom and Dad” as well as “husband and wife” have been banned from California schools under a bill signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who with his signature also ordered public schools to allow boys to use girls restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa, if they choose.
Analysts have warned that schools across the nation will be impacted by the decision, since textbook publishers must cater to their largest purchaser, which often is California, and they will be unlikely to go to the expense of having a separate edition for other states.
The bills signed by Schwarzenegger include SB777, which bans anything in public schools that could be interpreted as negative toward homosexuality, bisexuality and other alternative lifestyle choices.
There are no similar protections for students with traditional or conservative lifestyles and beliefs, however.
[Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families (CCF),] said SB777 prohibits any “instruction” or school-sponsored “activity” that “promotes a discriminatory bias” against “gender” – the bill’s definition includes cross-dressing and sex changes – as well as “sexual orientation.”
“Because no textbook or instruction in California public schools currently disparages transsexuality, bisexuality, or homosexuality, the practical effect of SB777 will be to require positive portrayals of these sexual lifestyles at every government-operated school,” CCF noted.
Offenders will face the wrath of the state Department of Education, up to and including lawsuits.
CCF noted that now on a banned list will be any text, reference or teaching aid that portrays marriage as only between a man and woman, materials that say people are born male or female (and not in between), sources that fail to include a variety of transsexual, bisexual and homosexual historical figures, and sex education materials that fail to offer the option of sex changes.
