Parents Fight Calif. Gay Agenda Indoctrination

California pro-family organizations have been approved by the State to begin a petition drive for a 2012 ballot referendum to overturn the latest assault on children -- the recently enacted "gay history" law that forces all public schools to present sexually deviant behavior as beneficial for society.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed SB48 earlier this month, making California the first state to mandate teaching of gays and lesbians in public school curriculum. The requirement takes effect in the 2013-14 school year.

Paulo Sibaja (see-BAH-ha), a spokesman for the group Stop SB48, says California schools should be focused instead on improving student performance and lowering the high school dropout rate.

Proponents will need to gather more than 500,000 signatures from registered voters by Oct. 12 to qualify for the next statewide ballot.

From "EQCA to fight SB 48 referendum" by Cynthia Laird, Bay Area Reporter 7/28/11

Hoping to prevent a referendum repealing the state's new Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful Education Act from reaching the ballot, Equality California and about 40 other [pro-homosexual] organizations will join forces to mount a decline to sign campaign, officials said Wednesday, July 27.

Roland Palencia, executive director of Equality California, sent an email alert to about 400,000 people Tuesday.

The alert asks for contributions to reach a $50,000 immediate goal, volunteers to work with coalition partners, and to report signature gatherers.

"Governor Brown refused to listen to the calls of pro-family voters asking him to veto SB 48," stated Karen England, executive director of the Capitol Resource Institute and its affiliated Capitol Resource Family Impact.

An official with one of the organizations working on the plan, Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute, told WND the filing puts the law on hold until it is determined whether Californians want to vote on the plan.

The law requires schools to teach "gay" and "lesbian" involvement in history, but only from a positive perspective. It bans any statement, fact or information that would reflect "adversely" on those who choose an alternative sexual lifestyle.

A WND/Wenzel Strategies poll just weeks ago revealed an overwhelming majority of Americans say elementary school is no place to promote the homosexual lifestyle. Even among liberals there is the strong belief that such lessons should be left outside the door of the classroom.
