Americans want lessons about homosexuality banished from classrooms
An overwhelming majority of Americans say elementary school is no place to promote the homosexual lifestyle, and even among liberals there is the strong belief that such lessons should be left outside the door of the classroom, according to a new poll.In California itself, the problems include:
The results are from a WND/WENZEL Poll conducted for WND by the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies.
"Whether they object on moral grounds or simply out of concern that many U.S. schools are failing in their core missions of teaching basics doesn't really matter – the vast majority of American adults want this type of curriculum kept out of the classroom," Wenzel chief Fritz Wenzel said.
The scientific telephone survey was done April 19-21, and has a margin of error of 3.23 percentage points. It found that 65 percent of all respondents objected to teaching elementary school children that homosexuality is a "normal alternative lifestyle."
The question was, "Do you believe elementary school children should be taught that homosexuality is a normal alternative lifestyle?"
Only 22 percent agreed that would be right, and only 13 percent were unsure.
Nearly 80 percent of the self-identified members of the GOP objected, as did nearly 60 percent of the independents. Even among those who identified with the Democrat Party, more than 55 percent said those lessons are not appropriate.
"Americans are particularly averse to the introduction of gay issues into the curriculum of the nation's elementary schools," Wenzel said. "Two out of every three respondents said they oppose the teaching to elementary school students that homosexuality is a normal alternative lifestyle, an attitude that is mirrored across the political spectrum. Even among Democrats, who have been much more sympathetic to the promotion of gay issues, just 32 percent said they believe this should be taught to elementary school students. Just 11 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of political independents said the same thing."
The state previously has implemented laws that provide homosexual-bisexual-transssexual indoctrination by banning in all school teachings, classes, materials, seminars and events anything negative about such lifestyles.Just call him Arnold the RINOnator. It only takes someone like that to destroy all common sense.
The California schools also provide "confidential" abortion referrals and off-campus "counseling" for students without letting their parents know. There also are programs to distribute condoms and birth control, once again without parental knowledge.
It was just two years ago when SaveCalifornia.com launched the RescueYourChild.com effort to encourage parents to withdraw their children from public schools because of such indoctrination.
That followed work by the legislature and then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to establish Senate Bill 777 and Assembly Bill 394 as law. Those institutionalized the promotion of homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism and other alternative lifestyle choices by banning any "adverse" references in schools.
The situation gets even worse:
California also has mandated that public schools honor Harvey Milk – a homosexual activist and reported sexual predator, as well as an advocate for Jim Jones, leader of the massacred hundreds in Jonestown, Guyana.Yikes, and I thought it was bad enough they were worshiping Mumia abu-Jamal. This is most definitely a problem, and maybe one that the next Republican candidate for president should address.
SaveCalifornia.com led a statewide battle against "Harvey Milk Day" before California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the S.B. 572.
