In calling on California Governor Jerry Brown to veto a gay history bill, Randy Thomasson argues that children should not admire gay people.

Following in the footsteps of the Senate, the Democrat-controlled Assembly last week voted 49 to 25 in favor of Senator Mark Leno's FAIR Education Act.

Leno's proposed legislation would mandate the inclusion of the historical contributions of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans in the state's textbooks. As the country's most populous state, California's move could set the tone for textbooks throughout the nation.

Brown, a gay rights ally, has not publicly announced whether he'll sign the bill into law.

During an appearance on The Christian Broadcasting Network, Thomasson, the head of the Christian conservative group Save California, called the bill “sexual indoctrination.”

“Why do we say that? Because it would take a lie and turn it into the truth,” Thomasson explained.

“Children should not be told to admire quote lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender Americans as role models, because this would result in children as young as kindergarten being told that homosexuality, bisexuality is good and natural when there is no gay gene, and healthy when it is unhealthy behavior. And it would be something that they would be told to support and perhaps even think about for themselves.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Others who object to the proposed law have argued that it is an attack on the family.
