They did WHAT!

Normally I am going to try and keep The Church of Allan out of social issues and just concentrate on explaining our doctrine and creed, but this issue goes so far out of line that I am going to line up behind the mainstream churches.

(You know........ the one's with members!)

As we all know, California is where everything that is loose rolls to whenever America tilts a bit.

This has been happening for years but the latest episode makes even liberal minded, seen everything and done everything Allan shake his head in disbelief!

Although the term "Mom" and "Dad" have not been banned per se, as the more radical right would have us believe, what has happened is almost as bad.

We are talking about Senate Bill 777 which states that ALL descriptions of parents and care givers have to be used to avoid discrimination! (It requires only positive portrayals of homosexual, bisexual, transgender and other alternative lifestyle choices.)

The law itself technically bans in any school texts, events, class or activities or ANY discriminatory bias against those who have chosen alternative sexual lifestyles, Meredith Turney, legislative liaison for Capitol Resource Institute, said!

What this means is there has been a gradual erosion of family values by increments.

"First, the law allowed public schools to voluntarily promote homosexuality, bisexuality, and Transsexuality.

Then, the law required public schools to accept homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual teachers as role models for impressionable children.

Now, the law has been changed to effectively require the positive portrayal of homosexuality, bisexuality, and Transsexuality to six million children in California government-controlled schools," said Randy Thomasson, chief of the Campaign for Children and Families.
Now here comes the paradox in this whole mess in this quote from Meredith.

There are no similar protections for students with traditional or conservative lifestyles and beliefs, however.

Offenders will face the wrath of the state Department of Education, up to and including lawsuits.

"SB 777 will result in reverse discrimination against students with religious and traditional family values. These students have lost their voice as the direct result of Gov. Schwarzenegger's unbelievable decision.

The terms 'mom and dad' or 'husband and wife' could promote discrimination against homosexuals if a same-sex couple is not also featured," she said.
Karen England, chief of CRI, told WND that the law is not a list of banned words, including "mom" and "dad."

But she said the requirement is that the law bans discriminatory bias and the effect will be to ban such terminology.

"Having 'mom' and 'dad' promotes a discriminatory bias. You have to either get rid of 'mom' and 'dad' or include everything when talking about parental issues," she said.

"The promoters of sexual alternative lifestyles consider that discriminatory.

Now children will be told that their sexual orientation and gender are relative, too. No longer will children raised in these schools understand that we were made male and female with different, but complementary roles.

Instead, children will be taught that sexual orientation and gender are merely a matter of personal choice," he said.

"Thus, children will be told that because there are many sexual orientations and gender identities, they simply have to reach their own conclusions about which sexual orientation and gender 'possibilities' are 'right for them.'

Along with this will come the message that you really can't tell whether you like something unless you have tried it.

The likely consequences of this for children, the institution of the family, our churches, and our culture are horrendous," he said.
I myself have said repeatedly that gender preference has no effect on me since I have straight, queer, and weird friends and even an alien or two, but what I object to is the misinformation that the gay community disseminates in order to gain greater acceptance.

The best example of this is false statistics they keep throwing out that 10% of the population is homosexual since this would make it more mainstream and acceptable than the 2 or 3% percent it really is. (Actually it's 2.5%)

NOW GET THIS......Officials with the Gay-Straight Alliance Network and the Transgender Law Center already have outlined what they believe to be nondiscriminatory treatment in the school system.

"If you want to use a restroom that matches your gender identity … you should be allowed to do so," the groups advise. "Whenever students are divided up into boys and girls, you should be allowed to join the group or participate in the program that matches your gender identity as much as possible."

Further, the groups advise, "If you change your name to one that better matches your gender identity, a school needs to use that name to refer to you."

The advocacy group also warns schools against bringing parents into any such discussion with students.
The California plan still is facing a court challenge on its constitutionality and a possible vote of the people of California if an initiative effort succeeds but I wonder when someone is going to yell "I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE." (Thank you Peter.)

You realize that all this started when some asshole said it was child abuse to spank your kid!
