CA First State to Now Teach Gay History to Kindergarten Kids
Well now it’s official, children as young as 5 will now have to be taught that gay/lesbian lifestyles are okay. On Thursday, Gov Jerry Brown signed the bill into law. As usual, this bill had the backing of the Democrats. And also, the bill has drawn fire from churches and conservative groups that argue such instruction would expose students to a subject that some parents find objectionable.
The bill’s sponsor, Democrat Mark Leno of San Francisco, has said that teaching gay history in public schools will teach students to be more accepting of gays and lesbians. Since when do five year olds even understand that kind of language, let alone lifestyle? Hmm, seems someone needs their head examined. Shoving an abnormal lifestyle down throats?
The state will now draw up guidelines for the districts, and educators will decide who deserves inclusion in the curriculum. So perhaps now, more parents will revolt, and refuse to let this be taught to their children. You go to school to learn to read and write, not be taught unacceptable material as gay/lesbian thinking.
Supporters suggest slain San Francisco politician Harvey Milk would be an appropriate choice. Leno contends Milk’s fight for civil rights is as worthy of class study as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s. He adds this kind of “inclusive curriculum” will help protect students who may look, or act, differently.
But critics don’t buy the anti-bullying argument, and say SB 48 hijacks history class to promote a gay agenda.
“In the past, history taught about what people did, what they accomplished,” says Brad Dacus, head of the Pacific Justice Institute. “It didn’t focus on their sexuality and what they did in the bedroom. Yet that is what this legislation will impose on every public school in the state of California dealing with heterosexuality, homosexual role models, transgender role models, all the way down to the kindergarten level.” Fox News
Note: It’s taxpayer tax dollars paying to teach this stuff put into public schools, and it’s demeaning and a slap in their face, should they have this taught to their kids.
Leno says it’s the same criticism voiced years ago when schools embraced ethnic and women’s studies. Well ethnic and women’s studies are a far cry from sexual preference aka – gay/lesbian, way of life. Leno also argues this is just as important to be taught as the 3 Rs. Critics worry parents who object to this curriculum will be labeled intolerant, and that kids will start thinking about sexuality and gender identity at a very young age.
