Homosexual advocacy groups appear to be taking a slightly new tact toward the legitimatization of the gay lifestyle – education. Earlier this month news sources began reporting the incident of a teacher in Lexington, MA reading a fairy tale about gay marriage to a class of seven year olds. Parents were not informed of the lesson despite a 1996 law that required schools to notify parents of any sexual education.
Now in California the state senate has passed a bill that would require public schools to include ‘gay history’ in their textbooks. In addition the measure requires social studies books to ‘study the role and contributions of…people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.’ Conservative opponents claim that the bill will allow the California Department of Education to sue if a school does not portray homosexuality, bisexuality or transsexuality in a positive manner. These critics also argue that this type of thing is less education than ‘indoctrination’ and are urging Gov. Schwarzenegger to veto the legislation.
