The Governor of California has signed a law that forces homosexual history on school children.
However, critics are calling for a referendum on the issue, and the new legislation has been branded as ‘sexual brainwashing’.
The Bill, which was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown last Thursday, will force state schools to promote the historic impact of homosexual, bisexual and transgender activists.
It will also prohibit teachers and textbooks from telling pupils the risks associated with same-sex conduct.
The Capital Resource Institute, a pro-family campaign group, is now seeking a voter referendum on the issue.
And Randy Thomasson, president of the SaveCalifornia campaign group, said: “Jerry Brown has trampled the parental rights of the broad majority of California mothers and fathers who don’t want their children to be sexually brainwashed.”
He added: “The only way parents can opt-out their kids from this immoral indoctrination is to opt them out the entire public school system, which is no longer for morally-sensitive parents and their children.”
Governor Brown defended the new law saying: “History should be honest. This bill revises existing laws that prohibit discrimination in education and ensures that the important contributions of Americans from all backgrounds and walks of life are included in our history books.”
But Mr Thomasson warned: “The bill he signed prohibits teachers and textbooks from telling children the facts that homosexuality has the highest rate of HIV/AIDS and other STDs, higher cancer rates, and earlier deaths.
“These important facts about lifestyles children will being forced to admire will be omitted. And Brown calls this ‘honest’?”
In the past, LGBT history month in the UK has tried to teach children that Florence Nightingale was a lesbian and that Isaac Newton was gay.
Earlier this year a prominent gay blogger in the US admitted that homosexual activists want to “indoctrinate” children.
Writing on an LGBT blog, Daniel Villarreal said: “We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it.”
