Far Right Calls For Exodus From Public Schools Over Gay History Law

The efforts of the Christofascists in California to repeal the newly enacted state law, SB 48, which requires the contributions of LGBT individuals to be included in the state's history curriculum have failed again.  And to listen to hate group leaders like Randy Thomasson (pictured at left) one would think the end of the world was about to occur.  God forbid that gays be portrayed in a positive light or that or contributions to society or roles in history be recognized.  So what are the Christofascists urging Kool-Aid drinkers to do?  Pull their children and grandchildren out of the California public schools so as to protect them from learning that (i) LGBT people exist and (ii) that we are not the alcoholic, drug addict perverts that folks like Thomasson depict us to be.  Of course such an exodus would also be a boon for lunatic "Christian" schools that oppose the teaching of evolution and promote batshitery in general.  Here are highlights from Thomasson's missive to the Kool-Aid drinking set:  

No SB 48 repeal, but children can still escape 'LGBT' role models

In light of the failure to qualify a ballot measure to circumvent a controversial state law, SB 48, which requires homosexual-bisexual-transsexual role models in California K-12 schools, -- which fought against this anti-family bill and has been continually urging parents to remove their children from the state government school system due to SB 48, seven other sexual indoctrination laws, and nine other major concerns -- hopes that even more parents and grandparents will now take action to protect their vulnerable children.

SB 48, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown in 2011, mandates that children from kindergarten through 12th grade, in all "instruction in social sciences," admire "the role and contributions of...lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans."

"Parents and grandparents who don't want their children and grandchildren sexually indoctrinated with unnatural and unhealthy 'lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender' role models must decide now to exit the immoral, imploding, dysfunctional government school system and place their children in church schools or home schools," .  .  .  .  Because of SB 48 and seven other homosexual-bisexual-transsexual indoctrination laws, California K-12 government schools have become radical sexual indoctrination agencies."

Needless to say, Thomasson includes a pitch for sending money to his organization.  Also not surprisingly, Thomasson is an advocate of the "ex-gay" myth and supports the uniformly discredited use of "reparative therapy" to "change" gays.  Given Thomasson's irrational homophobia, one cannot help but wonder if he's not actually a self-loathing closet case.
