So what has taken the place of Math, Science, English, Civics, and History in California public schools? Why is California ranked almost last in education? What has caused the dumbing down of California's children in its public schools?
Well, too occupied with social issues might be part of the overall problem. And honestly, it's just getting worse.
Believe it or not, there is a state bill mandating that homosexual history be taught in California Schools. And yes, right now that bill is in front of the governor for signing into law.
Yes, make no mistake about it. California is at it again, and again it comes from a Democrat from ultra-liberal homosexual San Francisco. The bill's author is State Senator Mark Leno, D-San Francisco,
I was asked when I started writing this article if he were himself a homosexual or just a bought politician pandering to his homosexual supporters in San Francisco? And honestly, I don't know a whole lot about him.
All I do know about him is that he wrote a bill which requires public schools to teach the historical contributions of homosexual Americans in an effort to indoctrinate children into being more accepting of the homosexual lifestyle.
And guess what? The bill was approved by the Assembly in Sacramento, California.
Imagine that for a moment. California lawmakers have sent the governor a bill that would make the state the first state in America to require public schools to force kids to learn about the contributions of gays and lesbians and transvestites.
But hold on because it does more than just that! The bill, which not surprisingly was passed on a party-line vote, adds lesbian, gay, bisexuals, and transvestites to the list of groups that Public Schools must include in their Social Studies lessons. And not only will it be a requirement to teach, OK here it comes, but it will also be a crime to teach material that reflects adversely on gays.
A crime to teach material that reflects adversely on gays. And that, my friends, is called propaganda and brainwashing.
That means that any mention of how homosexual behavior seriously harms homosexuals individually, or how it also harms society in general, will be against the law to teach.
If this bill were written to require public schools to teach the historical contributions of smoking Americans in an effort to indoctrinate children into being more accepting of smokers. It would be laughed out of town.
Then to have someone say smoking is acceptable behavior, and see here kids - take a look at how many smokers were historically great Americans. All while at the same time it is against the law to teach how bad smoking is for people or society. Well friends, it would be laughable at best.
So let's just look at the facts about the health of people who engage in homosexual behavior, since it will be illegal to teach it in public schools.
First, we know that people who practice homosexuality experience higher rates of many diseases. This includes Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Hepatitis A, B, and C, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Gay Bowel syndrome, HIV and AIDS, and bacterial vaginosis. Second, people who practice homosexuality have higher rates of alcohol abuse, drug abuse, nicotine dependence, depression, suicide, domestic violence - its actually 20 times more common than among straight people.
If we look at places where homosexuality is widely accepted, like say San Fransisco, you'll find that the greater the acceptance of homosexual behavior also means the higher the rate of the above negative consequences. And, what about the effect of homosexual behavior on society? In addition to a domestic violence rate that is 20 times higher than among straight people, these are also some of the negative effects homosexuality has on society in general.
There are higher rates of child molestation among homosexuals. Nearly one-third of the reported child abuse cases are homosexual in nature, and yet homosexuals are only 3% of the entire population of the United States. Research shows that most sexual predators of children are homosexual men. Defined: "A sexual predator is a person seen as obtaining or trying to obtain sexual contact with another person in a metaphorically 'predatory' or abusive manner. Analogous to how a predator hunts down its prey, so the sexual predator is thought to 'hunt' for his or her sex partners."
Studies and statistics show that daughters of lesbian so-called "parents" are more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior and experience the consequences of that behavior. Children of homosexual so-called "parents" do the worst in 9 of 13 academic categories when compared with both married straight couples and straight couples who are living together.
Homosexual behavior is linked with higher rates of promiscuity, physical disease, mental illness, substance abuse, child sexual abuse and domestic violence. These are all things that impact society negatively. Please don't try to say some homosexual behavior doesn't hurt society, because it does. Just as all homosexual and straight "deviant behavior" does.
It is a major force that tears down society and directly harms children. Look at those Priests who are known to molest children. They didn't molest the children because they were Catholic, they did it because they were homosexuals. And who is the most vulnerable in society, our children. And who is facing more and more ultra-liberal indoctrination from the left in America, our children?
Yes, the very children that are now going to have to sit through classes of homosexual indoctrination in California after the governor signs that bill into law. Which he will most likely sign, first because California's governor is a Democrat, second because Assembly Speaker John Perez is the first openly gay speaker of the California Assembly, and lastly because homosexuals are a big factor in the Democratic Party today.
A couple of years ago there was a study published in Britain revealed that homosexuals are about 50% more likely to suffer from depression and engage in substance abuse than the rest of the population.
After analyzing 25 earlier studies on sexual orientation and mental health, researchers in Britain published their findings in the medical journal BMC Psychiatry. They found that the risk of suicide jumped over 200% if an individual had engaged in a homosexual lifestyle.
In Canada, another study shows all of the same problems associated with homosexuality. The Canadian findings show that the life expectancy for gay and bisexual men is 20 years less than the average Canadian man; that homosexuals commit suicide at rates ranging from twice as often to almost 14 times more than the general population; that homosexuals have smoking rates ranging from 1.3 to three times higher than average; that homosexuals become alcoholics at a rate 1.4 to seven times higher than the general population; that homosexuals use illicit drugs at a rate from 1.6 to 19 times higher than other Canadians; that homosexuals experience depression at rates ranging from 1.8 to three times higher than average; that homosexual men comprise 76% of AIDS cases and 45% of all new HIV infections; that homosexuals are at a higher risk of lung and liver cancer; that homosexual and bisexual men suffer a higher rate of anal cancer than heterosexual men; and, yes, that lesbian women report a higher rate of breast cancer.
Both the British and Canadian findings strongly support the results of similar studies conducted in the United States which reported the severe physical and psychological health risks associated with homosexual behavior. In findings from the Family Research Institute, 2007, researchers show that the lifespan of a homosexual is on average 24 years shorter than that of a straight person here in the United States. As a health threat, with all of the concern about medical coverage, even smoking pales in comparison to the risks of homosexual behavior. And some are asking why hasn't anyone thought about having homosexuals pay more for Medical Coverage since they live a risky lifestyle?
Studies show smoking can shorten one’s life by only 1 to 7 years on average, compare that to homosexuality which can shorten one's life by 24 years. It's no wonder that expert research finds homosexuality more dangerous than smoking.
Do you think that that fact will be told to the kids in school? I don't. For one thing, it will be against the law to do so. It will be a crime to teach material that reflects adversely on gays. Convenient isn't it? So even in Social Studies Class, children won't be able to ask questions if they want to know if homosexuality has negative effects on people and social issues.
California Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, a Republican from Twin Peaks, said he was offended as a Christian that the bill was being used to promote a "homosexual agenda" in public schools. "I think it's one thing to say that we should be tolerant," Donnelly said. "It is something else altogether to say that my children are going to be taught that this lifestyle is good."
California law already requires schools to teach about women, African Americans, Mexican Americans, entrepreneurs, Asian Americans, European Americans, American Indians and labor. The Legislature over the years also has prescribed specific lessons about the Irish potato famine and the Holocaust, among other topics.
This bill would require, as soon as the 2013-2014 school year, that the California Board of Education and all local school districts adopt textbooks and other teaching materials that cover the contributions and roles of sexual minorities. And by the way, the cost of doing this falls on the cities and counties - not the state. But remember, the textbooks and other teaching material cannot make any adverse reference to homosexuality. But this law it must only be one-sided, and not speak of the ills of the behavior.
Opponents argued that such instruction would further burden an already crowded curriculum and expose students to a subject that some parents find objectionable without being able to raise objections. One California Assemblyman Chris Norby, R-Fullerton, said the bill micromanages the classroom. "Our founding fathers are turning over in their graves," Donnelly said.
Some family groups have warned the bill will drive more parents to take their children out of public schools. "This sexual brainwashing bill would mandate that children as young as 6 years old be told falsehoods -- that homosexuality is biological, when it isn't, or healthy, when it's not," said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com.
I agree. I know if I had children, I wouldn't have them going through the horrible educational system and liberal indoctrination that we in California call our public schools. There has to be a better way then what the state is offering.
