Sacramento, California – Moving forward in the Democrat-controlled California Legislature are “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans” as role models for children as young as kindergarten.

Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee -- on a party-line vote, Democrats for and Republicans against -- passed what would be the 7th school sexual indoctrination law teaching children to regard homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality as good and natural.

SB 48 would mandate that history and social studies textbooks and instructional materials teach children to admire “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans” as role models. The proponents of the bill seem to have forgotten there are already six statewide school sexual indoctrination laws affirming homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality.

“Parents don’t want and children don’t need ‘LGBTIQ’ role models in school,” said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading statewide pro-family, pro-child organization. "This is sexual brainwashing to the extreme. It’s damaging and nonacademic to teach children a lie -- that homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality are natural and healthy lifestyles, when they’re not.” (Sources: "Is There A 'Gay Gene?'" and "The Health Risks of Gay Sex")

“SB 48 micromanages public schools by forcing teachers, administrators, local school boards, textbooks, and instructional materials to promote a gaggle of sexual lifestyles that disturb parents and confuse kids," Thomasson said. "This state mandate targets children for sexual brainwashing, behind the backs of parents, teaching boys and girls to admire those who engage in homosexual, bisexual, or transsexual behavior.”

If SB 48 becomes law:

1. Textbooks and instructional materials must positively promote “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans” as “role” models.

2. Children as young as 6 years old will be taught to admire homosexuality, same-sex “marriages,” bisexuality, and transsexuality (sex-change operations).

3. Children will be taught to support the political activism of “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Questioning” (LGBTIQ) political groups, as the bill requires “particular emphasis on portraying the role of these groups in contemporary society.”

4. Teachers will be made to positively portray homosexuality, same-sex “marriages,” bisexuality, and transsexuality (sex-changes operations), because to be silent can bring the charge of “reflecting adversely.”

5. School boards will be required to select textbooks and other instructional materials that positively portray sex-change operations, same-sex “marriages,” and more, because to be silent on these subjects opens them up to charges of “reflecting adversely.”

6. Parents will not be notified, nor will they be able to exempt their children, from this new core curriculum.

“California government schools are no longer morally safe for impressionable children,” Thomasson said. “Because of the raft of sexual indoctrination laws already in force, promoting homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality under the guise of ‘discrimination’ and ‘harassment,’ the social engineers are already having their way with more than six million boys and girls, with or without SB 48. That's why we strongly urge parents to rescue their children by permanently removing them from government schools and placing them in the safe havens of church schools or homeschooling."

“This week Governor Jerry Brown turns 73 years old,” Thomasson concluded. “When he was a boy, public schools were good and didn’t push sexual indoctrination. Now public schools aren’t so good, yet homosexual activists are pushing their non-academic agenda without regard to parents or logic or the best interests of children. We call on Governor Brown to prepare to veto this bad bill that greatly disturbs parents, confuses kids, and would flush public schools farther down the toilet.”
