California to Mandate LGBT Curriculum in Schools

The California State Senate has passed a bill that requires schools to teach gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender history. It has not yet gone through the state Assembly, but if it passes there Gov Jerry Brown is expected to sign it into law.

Supporters say the move is needed to counter anti-gay stereotypes and beliefs that make children in those groups vulnerable to bullying and suicide.

While there may some valid truth in the sentence above, I really don’t think this is the main driver behind the Gay community wanting this bill passed.  It has more to do with hammering acceptance of this lifestyle into the young minds of children, overriding the parent’s objections and teachings.

The article linked above does not say whether parents would be allowed to opt-out if they do not agree with their children being taught this subject matter. Given California’s out of control progressive movement I would be surprised if they would allow parents to control what their children are taught. Remember, progressive are smarter than us and know what is good for us.  It is all for the common good (sarc/off).

In our family we teach that the gay lifestyle goes against God’s wishes and commands. Not to sound too preachy Leviticus 18:22 is quite clear on the matter: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.” But before any of my liberal readers start sending me hate mail I want to make clear we are adamant that our children treat people who live this lifestyle with human decency. They are not to bully, pick on, or otherwise treat anyone who is gay with disrespect. We are all God’s children, there are no exceptions (1 Cor 6:11), and we expect our kids to treat everyone in that manner. We can disagree with the lifestyle without resorting to hate.
