NJ Law to Force Gay Agenda in Schools

The New Jersey legislature's "Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights" codifies sexual deviancy for public school students, starting at kindergarten.

-- From "N.J. Legislature advances 'Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights' for Gov. Christie's consideration" by Matt Friedman, Statehouse Bureau, The Star-Ledger 11/23/10

Supporters of the bill (A3466), which now advances to Gov. Chris Christie, said it would give New Jersey the strictest anti-bullying statute in the nation.

The measure fills gaps in the state’s first anti-bullying law, passed in 2002, that encouraged school districts to set up anti-bullying programs but did not mandate it.

The measure would require training for most public school employees on how to spot bullying and mandate that all districts form "school safety teams" to review complaints. Superintendents would have to report incidents of bullying to the state Board of Education, which would grade schools and districts on their efforts to combat it.

The only lawmaker to vote against the bill was Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll (R-Morris), who objected to the fact that it explicitly mentions categories of students subject to bullying, although it also includes a catch-all clause to include any "distinguishing characteristics."

Gregory Quinlan, director of government affairs for New Jersey Family First, opposed the bill because it lists categories that are subject to bullying, including race, religion, sexual orientation, gender or disability. It also includes "any other distinguishing characteristic."

"The list needs to be removed. It is discriminatory, it is unconstitutional, and that is what is wrong with this bill," Quinlan said, adding the language of the bill should just say "all bullying against all students for all reasons."

From "Anti-bullying measure goes to Gov. Christie" by Maya Rao and Chelsea Conaboy, Philadelphia Inquirer Staff Writers 11/23/10

Steven Goldstein, chairman of Garden State Equality, a gay-rights advocacy group that supported the bill [said], "I'm healed with this vote."

The anti-bullying bill got some of the most attention, with applause breaking out in Senate chambers when it passed unanimously with 30 votes. The bill had won 72-1 in the Assembly earlier in the afternoon.

Gov. Christie said Monday night that he had not read the measure but that the state's lawyers had raised concerns over whether its provisions infringed on constitutional rights. He did not say if he would sign it.

Public-interest law firms want to challenge the law if the governor signs it, said Greg Quinlan of the New Jersey Family Policy Council, whose website says it is dedicated to upholding the traditional family.
