Governor Schwarzenegger Signs Bills Forcing Schools to Promote Homosexuality to Five Year Olds
SACRAMENTO, CA, October 15, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed into law two bills requiring all public school instruction and activities to positively portray transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality to children as young as kindergarten. Other bills signed Friday undermine marriage and infringe upon the moral conscience of business owners, churches, and nonprofit organizations.
Schwarzenegger signed SB 777 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of schoolchildren by requiring changes to all instruction and activities) and AB 394 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of students, parents, and teachers via "anti-harassment" training). Of note, Schwarzenegger vetoed nearly the identical 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 SB 777, says Thomasson, which will go into effect on January 1, 2008, the following could be eliminated from California public schools because they are deemed to have a "discriminatory bias":
- 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 and other instruction 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 only girls to run for queen
- Boys’ and girls’ bathrooms that separate biological boys from biological girls
The second sexual indoctrination bill that Schwarzenegger signed, AB 394, will promote transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality to students, parents, and teachers through school training programs against "harassment" and "discrimination."
While SB 777 is about "instruction" and "activities" promoting various sexual lifestyles, AB 394 promotes these same lifestyles—"gender" (transsexuality and sex changes) and "sexual orientation" (bisexuality and homosexuality)—through publications, postings, curricula, and handouts to students, parents, and teachers. AB 394 would promote these lifestyles all under the guise of "safety."
