Throughout history, when ever groups are designated for special treatment ...they've usually ended up getting it! -- rfh

Ready for your kids or grandkids to learn about "gay history?"
Homosexual legislators and their sympathetic allies are ready with their most extensive grab for special rights ever and the environment of California's school children and the education they receive are their latest targets in the battle for their hearts and minds.
This vicious attack on California's classrooms and on our children has come in the form of Senate Bill 48, a blatant homosexual education and teaching bill aimed at forcing students to accept the homosexual, bisexual and transgender lifestyle as normal. And it would turn every school teacher into a promoter of the homosexual lifestyle in the classroom! This new bill would actually force them to portray homosexuality in a positive manner.
The terms "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender" will be added to the list of categories in the state's content standards
...and will be covered in ALL textbooks and instructional materials!!
The homosexuals behind the bill admit it. Their arrogance shows a clear disdain for the family and traditional moral values. Just read these statements they have made:
"Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) people should not be pushed into the closet when it comes to what students learn about history," said the leader of the group sponsoring SB 48.
Senator Mark Leno said: "Most textbooks don't include any historical information about the LGBT movement…we aren't teaching students about historical LGBT figures or the LGBT equal rights movement."
The brainchild behind SB 48 is none other than homosexual Senator Mark Leno of San Francisco; the same man who has devoted his entire service in the legislature thus far trying to make homosexual marriage legal.
SB 48 would radically change the nature of our California education. Some of the dangerous and offensive provisions of the bill include:
And now that they have Jerry Brown in the Governor's office, the homosexual lobby is fabulously confident Brown will sign anything they send him. They no longer have to wonder if Arnold Schwarzenegger will sign or veto their bills. There are even more reasons to be alarmed about this bill. SB 48 will affect the content standards for instructional materials that the State Board of Education has adopted. We can almost assuredly expect them to remove the current terms "male" and "female" and replace them with the vague term "gender." Here are a few examples of likely changes… Concerning Male & Female Roles Current standards require equal portrayal. Instructional materials "must refer to or illustrate both sexes approximately evenly, in both number and degree of importance." SB 48 would mean that for every heterosexual male or female covered in materials there must be an equal number of homosexual, bisexual or transgender people covered!! When discussing occupations, the current standards require that "men and women should be presented equally." One of the occupations listed as an example is "parenting." SB 48 would mean that for every piece of material depicting male and female parents there must also be depictions of homosexual couples as parents!! This is especially true since another provision in the content standards state: "Both sexes should be portrayed in nurturing roles with their families." You can count on homosexual men and women being promoted as alternative, loving families!! Concerning Ethnic & Cultural Groups Current content standards state: "Instructional materials containing references to, or illustrations of, people must portray accurately…the roles and contributions of a fair proportion of diverse ethnic groups, especially those groups referenced in [statute section 60040[b]]." What groups will be added to Section 60040 under SB 48? Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender!! What this means is whenever students are taught about the influence of Asian Americans on California's railroad system, or of Mexican American's contributions through the California missions, etc…they will also be taught of a new "cultural group." That group will be the homosexual community! Students will be taught about promiscuous homosexual politician Harvey Milk or that sports figures like Billie Jean King or Martina Navratilova are lesbians. The accomplishments of such sports figures made in their sport won't be of importance…it will be their sexuality that students will hear about!!!
