Social conservative Randy Thomasson is
urging parents to opt out of California's public schools now that an
effort to repeal a gay history law has failed.
Foes of Senate Bill 48 (SB 48) or the
FAIR Education Act last week conceded that they had been
unsuccessful in gathering the 504,760 voter signatures needed to
qualify for a repeal initiative in the next statewide ballot.
The law, sponsored by Senator Mark
Leno, a Democrat from San Francisco, requires that the California Board of
Education and local school districts teach about the historical
contributions of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
“And now, the pressing question is –
what will parents and grandparents do? SB 48 – mandating
homosexual-bisexual-transsexual role models for children as young as
kindergarten in K-12 government schools – is going into effect in
January, to brainwash kids to think that homosexuality, bisexuality,
and cross-dressing is good and natural and maybe even for them,”
Thomasson, the president of the group Save California, said
at the group's blog.
“The only way to opt out your
children from this mess is to exit the government schools and enter
the Promised Land of homeschooling and church school.”
“While some parents may initially
find this solution uncomfortable or difficult, my question is this:
How much worse does it have to get before you intervene? … Realize
that the raft of school sexual indoctrination mandates imposed on all
children in California government schools amounts to mental
molestation,” he added.
