California Sex Ed programme passed

Briefing: coming soon to a school near you... In fact this is only slightly worse than what is on offer in schools in the UK already.

From CFNews: Radical legislation, mandating that schoolchildren as young as kindergarten learn about transsexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality, has passed the California State Senate. SB 777 requires textbooks, instructional materials, and school-sponsored activities to positively portray cross-dressing, sex-change operations, same-sex marriages, all aspects of homosexuality and bisexuality, and so-called 'gay history.' Silence on these sexual lifestyles will not be allowed. Yesterday's vote, 23 to 13, was on a party line -- Democrats for, Republicans against. No Republican senator rose to speak against the bill. SB 777 would teach these sexual subjects without parental permission. The new mandate would be enforced by the attorneys of the California Department of Education, which would sue school districts that do not comply.

'The notion of forcing children to support controversial sexual lifestyles is shocking and appalling to millions of fathers and mothers,' said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families (CCF). The group is calling on the governor to pledge to veto the bill. 'Parents don't want their children taught to become homosexual or bisexual or to wonder whether they need a sex-change operation,' said Thomasson. 'SB 777 will shatter the academic purpose of education by turning every government school into a sexual indoctrination centre.' The bill would also replace the definition of sex in the Education Code, which currently reads: 'Sex means the biological condition or quality of being a male or female human being.' It would be replaced with 'Gender means sex, and includes a person's gender identity and gender related appearance and behaviour whether or not stereotypically associated with the person's assigned sex at birth.' The definition was authored by lesbian Senator Sheila Kuehl.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
