Pro-Family Crowd Urges Calif. Governor Against Signing Pro-Homosexual Bills

Pro-family advocates in California are concerned that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will force the state's children to be subjected to sexual indoctrination in public schools.

On Tuesday, the pro-family group Campaign for Children and Families (CCF) held a protest on the steps of the State Capitol in Sacramento. Rally speakers expressed frustration over Schwarzenegger's August 28 signing of SB 1441, a bill forcing religious colleges to promote homosexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality if they accept students receiving state financial assistance.
However, the focus of the protest was to encourage the governor to veto three bills that pro-family forces believe will, in effect, turn California public schools into centers for the pro-homosexual sexual indoctrination of children. Randy Thomasson, president of CCF, says Schwarzenegger needs to hear from concerned citizens, not just in California but across the United States.
"As California goes, so goes the nation," Thomasson asserts. "If these bills are signed into law, other state legislators will try to introduce the same legislation in other states," he says.
The three pieces of legislation that were the focus of the protest rally -- AB 606, AB 1056, and SB 1437 -- have parents and grandparents "very concerned," Thomasson explains. That is because these bills push transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality on children without their parent or guardian's permission, he says. The Governor has already vetoed SB 1437 yesterday (Wednesday, September 6th, 2006) and here is the wording of this bill.
Meanwhile, if enacted, AB 1056 would spend a quarter million of taxpayer dollars to turn ten of the state's schools, including kindergarten, into "sexual indoctrination centers," a CCF news release notes, and would thus "betray the academic purpose of education."
Schwarzenegger has until the end of September to veto or sign the bills. Thomasson believes the enactment of any of these pieces of legislation in California would adversely impact the entire nation. And, he points out, it is not only parents and grandparents who need to be concerned because everyone in society would be affected.
"There are only two sides," the CCF spokesman contends. "There’s a side of supporting these bills or the side of opposing these bills; we cannot shudder and run for the covers or run for the hills and try to emotionally insulate ourselves and say it doesn’t touch me," he says.
Like I have asked many a time on this site: What is the purpose in teaching our children about sexual orientations? Do not give me answers of 'to teach tolerance and diversity' because that is left up to the values of the household the child comes from not from the values of the public schools.
