Gov.Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed into law four bills requiring all public school instruction and activities to positively portray trans-sexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality to children as young as kindergarten.
He has also signed bills undermining marriage and infringing upon the moral conscience of business owners, churches, and nonprofit organizations.
On Friday the 13th, Schwarzenegger signed SB 777 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of schoolchildren by requiring changes to all instruction and activities) and AB 394, 102 and 14 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of students, parents, and teachers via “anti-harassment” training).
Signing the bills was a switch for Schwarzenegger, who vetoed nearly the same bills last year, in the midst of his reelection campaign.
“Arnold Schwarzenegger has delivered young children into the hands of those who will introduce them to alternative sexual lifestyles,” said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families (CCF), which helped lead the statewide charge against these bills. “This means children as young as five years old will be mentally molested in school classrooms. Shame on Schwarzenegger and the Democrat politicians for ensuring that every California school becomes a homosexual- bisexual-transsexual indoctrination center.”
SB 777 prohibits any “instruction” or school-sponsored “activity” that “promotes a discriminatory bias” against “gender” (the bill’s definition includes cross-dressing and sex changes) and “sexual orientation” (the bill’s definition includes bisexuality). Because no textbook or instruction in California public schools currently disparages transsexuality, bisexuality, or homosexuality, the practical effect of SB 777 will be to require positive portrayals of these sexual lifestyles at every government-operated school.
Otherwise, “discriminatory” schools will be subject to intimidation and lawsuits by the State Department of Education. Under these bills, which will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2008, the following will be eliminated from California public schools because they are deemed to have a “discriminatory
• Textbooks and other instruction that portray marriage as only between a man and a woman;
• Textbooks and other instruction that say people are born male or female (and not in between);
• Textbooks that leave out transsexual, bisexual, and homosexual historical figures;
• Sex education and school assemblies that omit the option of hormone injections, or sex changes;
• Homecoming king and queen contests that allow only boys to run for king and girls to run for queen;
• Separate bathrooms for boys and girls.
“Mom and Dad” as well as “husband and wife” effectively have been banned from California schools. “SB 777 will result in reverse discrimination against students with religious and traditional family values,” said Meredith Tourney, legislative liaison for Capitol Resource Institute. “These students have lost their voice as the direct result of Gov. Schwarzenegger’s unbelievable decision. The terms ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ or ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ could promote discrimination against homosexuals if a same-sex couple is not also featured.
“Parents want the assurance that when their children go to school they will learn the fundamentals of reading, writing and arithmetic —not social indoctrination regarding alternative sexual lifestyles. Now that SB777 is law, schools will in fact become indoctrination centers for sexual experimentation,” she said.
“We are shocked and appalled that the governor has blatantly attacked traditional family values in California,” said Karen England, executive director of Capitol Resource Institute.
