Peter LaBarbera today writes about a California proposed law that would prevent discrimination of gays and lesbians in materials taught in school. Right now the law states that a school cannot use material that "reflect(s) adversely upon persons because of their race, sex, color, creed, handicap, national origin, or ancestry." The new addition to this law states:
This bill would revise the list of prohibited bases of discrimination and the kinds of prohibited instruction, activities, and instructional materials and instead, would refer to disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic contained in the definition of hate crimes that is contained in the Penal Code. The bill would define disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation for this purpose. (2) Existing laws relating to education refer to "handicapped pupils," "handicapped adults," "physically handicapped pupils," "physically handicapped adults," "the handicapped," and "handicapped persons." This bill would change these terms to "pupils with disabilities," "adults with disabilities," "pupils with physical disabilities," "adults with physical disabilities," and "persons with disabilities."

Anything in which gays and lesbians are treated fairly and equally is too much for LaBarbera and he cuts and pastes (as he usually does) some garbage by Randy Thomasson, who runs the Campaign for California Families. Anyway, Peter sees the writing on the wall, and shows that Randy Thomasson does as well–the time is running out for the anti-gay activists. Peter writes:
Folks, one paragraph in the following alert from California pro-family hero Randy Thomasson of Campaign for California Families — about that State Senate’s passage of radical pro-homosexual/transsexual school indoctrination bill (SB 777) – sums up WHY we are seeing the “gay” agenda roll over America. Randy writes:
But you should also be frustrated with the [California State] Republican senators who seem to have lost their God-given VOICES and have forgotten their MORAL OBLIGATION to speak out in defense of children and family and morality. On Thursday, when given the opportunity to speak out against SB 777 in front of the several TV, radio and newspaper reporters who cover always attend the floor sessions, NOT ONE Republican state senator raised his microphone in defense of children.
So why not one? Thomasson writes:

This is very disturbing. Many Republican politicians easily speak out on the Senate and Assembly floors about crime, immigration, taxes, education, transportation and a wide range of government issues. So why didn’t ANY of the 15 Senate Republicans speak against SB 777 on Thursday? You have to conclude that they just didn’t wanna. They knew what to say, but didn’t. CCF and others had provided legislators with excellent talking points exposing SB 777’s transsexual-bisexual-homosexual agenda. But no one talked from the talking points, let alone anything else.
It probably occurred to both LaBarbera and Thomasson that the Republicans did not voice opposition to this because they know that it is the right thing to do. Well, that probably isn’t correct since the Republicans did vote no. But that isn’t enough for LaBarbera and Thomasson. Oh well, I guess they will just have to live with it. It goes on to the State Assembly, where it will certainly pass, and then on to Schwarzenneger, and he will probably pass it as well. Then we will really hear an outcry! 🙂
Here is what another nutcase, James Hartline had to say about it all:
(JHReport) Some are calling it ourageous. One leading Republican activist has even called it pathetic. They are referring to the passage of California Senate Bill SB777, which will require all California school children as young as kindergarten to learn about and support transsexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality. Sponsored by San Francisco lesbian Senator Carole Migden, this communist-style bill passed the state senate Thursday on a 23-13 party-line vote. However, there is one other aspect of the SB777 final floor vote that is sparking even more anger among GOP conservatives than the vote itself. That aspect is the fact that not even one Republican state senator verbally opposed the bill during the final floor vote.
Chuck Stout, a long-time financial supporter of San Diego Republican candidates called SB777, "a NAMBLA-style piece of legislation." NAMBLA is an organization devoted to the legalization of child molestation. Stout told the James Hartline Report that California’s Republican state senators have reached their lowest moral point when they refused to voice any opposition to the bill during the final floor vote. Throughout California, Republican conservatives like Chuck Stout are concerned that the state’s GOP leadership has set out on a course of caving in to homosexual lobbyists and their campaign to legalize same-sex marriages.
Anger over the realization that no Republican state senator stood up to oppose SB777 prior to the final floor vote was growing around the state over the weekend. Randy Thomasson, President and Founder of Campaign for Children and Families, issued a press release in response to the senate passage of SB777. Thomasson’s press release stated:
"Sadly, no Republican senator rose to speak against SB777. After this non-debate,
the school indoctrination bill passed the Democrat-controlled Senate by three votes,
23 – 13 (20 votes were required for passage). Republican Senator Tom Harman
abstained and Republican Senator Jim Batten was absent."
Voter outrage over the passage of SB777, as well as Republican Senatorial apathy, cannot be overstated. Families may now be forced to turn their children over to California schools where they will be indoctrinated into all aspects of homosexuality and lesbianism from the time that they enter kindergarten. Silence from the state’s GOP senate caucus will cast a very dark shadow over any credibility that the California Republican Party has when it comes to protecting children from the predatory advocates of California’s radicalized homosexual movement.
Whew. Anyway, soon these people will be out of business and off to pick on some other group. I will gladly be there and shut the door behind them when they do.
