Today in NOM overreaches: Chair John Eastman advocates against inclusive school instruction

by Jeremy Hooper

People often ask me why John Eastman, the man who last year replaced Maggie Gallagher as the National Organization For Marriage's board chair, has been virtually absent from the debate since his fall 2011 appointment. The possible answer: he's been too busy advocating against wholly unrelated things like inclusive school teaching to concern himself with NOM's stated debate.

This from One News Now:

A California initiative to repeal a harmful anti-family law has less than three months to collect hundreds of thousands of signatures to qualify.

Proponents of the CLASS (Children Learning Accurate Social Sciences) Act have until July to collect signatures to repeal SB 48 -- the governor-approved law that took effect January 1, requiring students in public schools to be taught about lesbian, "gay," bisexual and transgendered individuals' contributions to society. It does not provide an option for parents to opt their children out. Initiative supporters must collect roughly 700,000 signatures to place the item on the 2014 statewide ballot

"The CLASS Act is an effort to restore some common sense to our schools that focuses not on people's categories and sexual inclinations, but on what their actual contributions as a matter of objective truth are to the subject of inquiry," details John Eastman, founding director of The Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence.

Another day, another example of NOM proving itself to be a generalized anti–LGBT equality group.
