A new bill signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown on July 14th will require public schoolchildren to be taught about the “historical contributions” of homosexuals, bisexuals, and so-called “transgender” people. The bill forbids any school to use textbooks that do not wholly approve of and speak kindly of these practices.
The law is a slap in the face to California parents who object to their children learning about such things. Many parents who try to instill a Biblical worldview in their children at home will be shocked to learn that the public school system will be supplementing their children’s education with pro-homosexual drivel. At its core, this new “educational” push is designed to expose children at an early age to homosexuality as well as create in them a rejection of Biblical norms.
But while the move is a blatant rejection of God’s standards and parental rights in the state of California, it was designed to have an effect on the entire nation’s school system. California is the largest school system in America, with more than six million students. Textbook publishers must now rewrite textbooks in order to comply with the pro-homosexual education requirement. These publishers won’t be issuing a “California-only” edition of their textbooks. It is likely that most new textbooks printed in the future will have these new pro-homosexual sections, and these textbooks will be purchased by school districts all over America, not just California.
California’s move will have long-term impact on America’s public schoolchildren, from Alabama to Washington State. Public schoolchildren are already assaulted each day with all types of anti-Biblical messages, but now they will be subject to another: “Homosexuality is okay, and you should look to these homosexuals in our textbook as your heroes.”
California Gov Signs Landmark Law to Teach Gay History
California has become the first state in the nation to require public schools to add lessons about gay history to social studies classes, after Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed the landmark bill on Thursday. The Democratic-majority Legislature passed the bill last week on a largely party-line vote.
It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
