Parental rights, decency out the window

A California pro-family group says lawmakers' decision to create a holiday in honor of an openly homosexual politician has dealt a detrimental blow to the state's school children.

In an email to SaveCalifornia.com, Deanna Aguire of Moreno Valley told the pro-family organization that her daughter and students at Moreno Valley High School were forced to attend a Gay-Straight Alliance rally in honor of the late San Francisco politician, Harvey Milk. Aguire's daughter told the teacher she did not want to go to the rally because she was a Christian, and only after persistence did the teacher allow her to opt out. Randy ThomassonRandy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, tells OneNewsNow that parental rights and decency are "meaningless" in public schools. "Wake up, parents. Public schools are no longer for the public," he says. "They're government institutions that think that you're children are their children -- and they are going to turn them into homosexual, bisexual, transsexual political activists." Days before Harvey Milk Day, Aguire's daughter was asked by the teacher to read out loud from a biography honoring Milk. Her teacher also reportedly showed clips of the film Milk, including a scene that showed two homosexual men in bed together. "Just wait now until Harvey Milk is on a weekday next year, and it's going to be what? Anything goes," Thomasson laments. "It could be gay pride parades on campus; it could be mock gay weddings on campus; it could be essays, mandatory homework saying why Harvey Milk, a bad guy, was a great guy. I mean, this is in-your-face stuff." The family advocate adds that children in California's public schools are being hit with a "tsunami of perversity" and homosexual indoctrination. He cites another example in which first-graders were read a homosexual book in honor of Milk. My Uncle's Wedding (book)Around 40 elementary schools students in San Francisco were read author Eric Ross' new children's book My Uncle's Wedding as part of Harvey Milk Day. California adopted an official holiday honoring Milk, who was the first openly homosexual elected into office in the state. Thomasson argues Harvey Milk Day is being used to push the homosexual agenda in public schools -- just like the Day of Silence. "Now Harvey Milk Day is taking hold, and again, first-graders who don't even know about sexuality [are] being taught unnatural sexuality." (Listen to audio report) Openly homosexual State Senator Mark Leno visited Ross during the launch of My Uncle's Wedding and spoke briefly on S.B. 48, a bill the lawmaker is trying to push which would require textbooks in California to include information about lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and "gay" individuals. Thomasson laments that Leno will promote the bill wherever he can. "He sees children as little homosexuals-in-waiting," he contends. "And he wants to tell them they're homosexual, tell them they're bisexual, tell them they're transsexual -- not tell them that transexuality is irreversible and it's obviously a choice; not tell them that bisexuality is obviously unnatural and obviously a choice; not telling them that the gay gene has never been found." According to Thomasson, conservative areas of the state also were required to participate in activities honoring Milk.
