SaveCalifornia.com vs. FairInclusvity.edu

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images 200811061333-1-2Describing himself as "one of California 's top opponents of placing 'LGBT' personages in school textbooks" (one must have goals), SaveCalifornia.com's reliably boundless Randy Thomasson is responding to Gov. Brown's signing of the FAIR Education Act -- responding with a instruction that parents pull their kids from schools, turn a blind eye to the obvious and prolonged problem of anti-LGBT bullying, and instead indoctrinate the little ones with junk science:

"Jerry Brown has trampled the parental rights of the broad majority of California mothers and fathers who don't want their children to be sexually brainwashed," said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, which helped lead the opposition to SB 48. "SB 48 has no parental opt-out. The only way parents can opt-out their kids from this immoral indoctrination is to opt them out the entire public school system, which is no longer for morally-sensitive parents and their children."
...
"With the signing of SB 48, even more California parent will be shocked to see the glorification of Harvey Milk and other homosexual-bisexual-transsexual role models in school textbooks," Thomasson said. "SB 48 is the eighth school sexual indoctrination law forcing immorality on kids in California K-12 schools. It's time for parents who love their children to match their words with deeds and do what's necessary to get them out of the immoral government schools and into the safe havens of homeschooling and church schools."
...
"It's ridiculous that Jerry Brown says he's making history 'honest,'" Thomasson added. "The bill he signed prohibits teachers and textbooks from telling children the facts that homosexuality has the highest rate of HIV/AIDS and other STDs, higher cancer rates, and earlier deaths. These important facts about lifestyles children will being forced to admire will be omitted. And Brown calls this 'honest'? This revisionist history will actually make more children believe a lie -- that homosexuality is biological, which it's not, and healthy, which is isn't." (Source: "Not Born This Way")
...
"The broad majority of parents don't want their children made to admire homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals," Thomasson said. "Existing laws are more than adequate to address on-campus bullying. There's no money in the state or local coffers to fund these significant changes to textbooks. Jerry Brown has obviously catered to a small group of homosexual activists who want to sexually brainwash children, just like he catered to them by refusing to defend the People's vote on marriage licenses."

Making matters worse for the public school culture: I hear Thomasson didn't even use a No. 2 Pencil to write the above missive. So insubordinate, this one.

Reminder: Last time Randy was this mad over something, he was likening town clerks tasked with marrying gay couples to those Nazi officers who'd been commanded to "gas the Jews." Lest any of you California history teachers were planning on supporting him.

*NOTE: Even Prop 8 attorney Andy Pugno said Randy "represents the extreme fringe." However, this doesn't stop groups like the National Organization For Marriage from using his work. Both NOM proper and NOM's affiliate Ruth Institute both recently wrote posts that proudly pushed Randy's "data."
