If this bill passes, sex-specific terms like “mom” and “dad” will be removed from school textbooks. Why? Because they’re offensive.
The bill requiring students to learn about the contributions homosexuals have made to society has passed another hurdle on the way to becoming the law of the land in California.
Having already been approved by the state’s Senate Judiciary Committee, SB 1437, which would mandate grades 1-12 buy books “accurately” portraying “the sexual diversity of our society,” got the nod yesterday of the Senate Education Committee.
The bill also requires students hear history lessons on “the contributions of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender to the economic, political, and social development of California and the United States of America.”
“This bill is the most extreme effort thus far to transform our public schools into institutions of indoctrination that disregard all notions of the traditional family unit,” said Karen England, executive director of Capitol Resource Institute. “SB 1437 seeks to eliminate all ‘stereotypes’ of the traditional family so that young children are brainwashed into believing that families with moms and dads are irrelevant.”
It’s hard to believe that every day millions of parents in the U.S. relinquish control of the education of their kids to militant, leftist radicals with self-serving, wreckless agendas who write legislation like this.
One might wonder how bills and initiatives like this gain any traction at all. I think I know. These things get as far as they do because a clueless electorate votes into power wackos like those who make up Cali’s Senate Education Committee. Then, the same voters pay no attention whatsoever to what these elected officials actually do, unless it involves directly taking money out of their personal checking accounts.
While most of us believe the biggest threat to America is terrorism, I’m convinced that we’re threatened every day by disconnected, ill-informed, selfish men and women who put themselves and their personal agendas ahead of something as important as the education of children brought into this world. And shame on the parents who chose to ignore the threat and succomb for reasons of inconvenience, political correctness, or fear. Our kids are worth more than that.
