A New Sexual Education

While most of the media were feeding on the Arnold Schwarzenegger frenzy in California -- including reports that he groped women in his past -- California governor Gray Davis has signed into law a new sex education bill for the state's public schools.

It creates a new system of "comprehensive sexual health education" for children from kindergarten through 12th grade.

Materials used in the course are required to promote transsexual and homosexual ideas in order (in the language of the new law) that they will be "appropriate for use" with pupils of "all genders and sexual orientations." It dismisses the value of marriage by teaching so-called "respect for committed relationships." And, incredibly, the new law abolishes the parental right to be asked permission before sex surveys can be given to one's child in a public school. And this will start in kindergarten.

If this isn't at your neighborhood government school, it will be soon. Get your children out while you can and either home school them or put them in Christian schools.
