Parents and conservative groups have blasted California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger for signing a number of bills, two of them dealing with public schools, which encourage the positive portrayal of various sexual lifestyles in all school instruction and activities.
Supporters of the law, which will come into effect next year, say it will “eliminate “confusion about the state’s responsibility to ensure that all school programs, textbooks, instructional materials and activities are free from unlawful discrimination.”
The bills, backed by the homosexual community, have been dubbed ‘Sexual Indoctrination’ bills by critics however as they ban anything in public schools that could be interpreted as negative toward homosexuality, bisexuality and other alternative lifestyle choices.
The Campaign for California Families (CFF), has hit out at the bills, stating that for a school district to prove that there is no “discriminatory bias” in their textbooks, classroom instruction, and school activities, the district would have to positively portray various sexual lifestyles in all school instruction and activities.
“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.
Thus terms such as “Mom and Dad” as well as “husband and wife” must now be either removed or offset with other terms that are friendly to “alternative” lifestyles. Furthermore materials that portray marriage as only between a man and woman must be altered and materials that say people are born male or female must also be amended.
Teachers will likely also face punitive action and lawsuits brought by the state’s department of education if they do not present homosexual �marriage� and sex-change operations, for instance, on the same level as traditional marriage and family.
“Arnold Schwarzenegger has delivered young children into the hands of those who will introduce them to alternative sexual lifestyles,” said Randy Thomasson, president of CFF. “This means children as young as five years old will be mentally molested in school classrooms.”
Schwarzenegger also signed into law a bill prohibiting state funding for programs that do not support alternative sexual practices, which affects churches, day cares, preschools, senior services, and other organizations.
Schwarzenegger himself is no stranger to alternative sexual lifestyles having featured in many gay pornographic magazines during his early career.
