Anti-gay groups are banding to together in an effort to overturn or substantially water down California's new FAIR Education Law, which requires public schools to include the historical contributions of LGBT people. According to Talking Points Memo:
A number of right-wing groups have filed initiatives to repeal the law, or at least gut out the pertinent language, because it teaches kids to "endorse transgenderism, bisexuality, and homosexuality, looking to individuals with these lifestyles as models and viewing their sexual lifestyles positively," according to Stop SB 48.
“We all know that the issue of homosexuality is controversial,” said Jack Hibbs, an initiative sponsor. “It is unacceptable to require that our schools shine a spotlight on this lifestyle on the one hand and then demand that history books and teachers censor shortcomings on the other.”
The group Save California, run by Randy Thomasson, is also touting web ads that “Urge California Parents To Rescue Their Children from Sexual Indoctrination,” and asking for donations to help the group run them.
“The most in-year-face [sic] law that forces children as young as 5 years old to admire homosexuality, bisexuality, cross-dressing, and ‘sex changes’ is SB 48, which goes in effect in January with its ‘supplemental materials’ mandate on every public school in the state,” Thomasson said in a statement.
“Because of the Democrats’ social-engineering laws, children left in California government schools are guaranteed sexual brainwashing, but proficiency in reading, writing, and computing are not guaranteed at all,” he added.
Five initiatives have already been filed with California's attorney general. Read the full report HERE.
