California First State To Mandate Teaching Homosexual History In School
California has become the first state to force schools to insert curriculum teaching about gay and homosexual history into social studies class rooms after Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed the legislation on Thursday.
The bill has drawn criticism from from some churches and conservative groups stating that this might expose children to subject found objectionable by parents. This was written by Democratic state Sen. Mark Leno who said this will help these students be more accepting of gays and lesbians.
Critics aren't buying this as they say that promoting a gay agenda has no place in schools and class rooms.
"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."
