Reasons to Homeschool, #4,391
Posted on October 29th, 2007 by kimc
I know that not all Christians agree, but I wholeheartedly believe that the public school system is no place for a Christian child.
In California, the case has become even stronger. SB 777 has passed the California State Senate and was signed into law. This law, strongly supported by the California Teacher’s Association and the PTA, has a myriad of effects that should horrify any Christian parent who has children in the public school system:
Textbooks, instructional materials and school-sponsored activities must positively portray cross-dressing, sex-change operations, homosexual ‘marriages’ and all aspects of homosexuality and bisexuality, including so-called ‘gay history.’ Silence on the topics will not be allowed.
A person’s gender has been redefined to personal preferance, and not dependent upon the person’s “assigned sex” at birth.
Words such as “mom” and “dad” and “husband” and “wife” would have to be edited from all texts.
Cheerleading and sports teams would have to be gender-neutral.
Prom kings and queens would be banned, or if featured, would have to be gender neutral so that the king could be female and the queen male.
Gender-neutral bathrooms could be required for those confused about their gender identity.
A male who believes he really is female would be allowed into the women’s restroom, and a woman believing herself a male would be allowed into a men’s room.
Even scientific information, such has statistics showing AIDS rates in the homosexual community or statistics relating to births or deaths among various cultural groups, could be banned.
Do you think this doesn’t affect you or your children because you don’t live in California?
Think again. California is the largest purchaser of textbooks in the nation. New editions of textbooks will likely be edited by publishers to meet the new requirements in California.
Even if your child is in a public school in the conservative midwest or in the South, this is going to affect your child and your family.
Please, think about it.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
More attacks upon the family and Christianity signed by Gov. Schwarzenegger in recent weeks:
AB394 creates the circumstances where a parent who says marriage is only for a man and a woman in the presence of a lesbian teacher could be convicted of “harassment,” and a student who believes people are born either male or female could be reported as a “harasser” by a male teacher who wears women’s clothes.
AB14 prohibits state funding for any program that does not support a range of alternative sexual practices, including state-funded social services run by churches. This opens up nonprofit organizations to lawsuits if they exclude members that engage in homosexual, bisexual, or transsexual conduct.
The governor with his signature also ordered public schools to allow boys to use girls restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa.
