World Congress of Families condemns
promotion of ‘polymorphous perversion’
By Bob Unruh

© 2008 WorldNetDaily.com

An international organization promoting families says California families have no choice but toabandon the public school system after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a new “anti-discrimination”bill into law, effectively making terms like “mom” and dad” obsolete.As WND has reported, some family advocates in California already had come to the same conclusion as that reached now by the

 World Congress of Families.

World Congress of Families Global Coordinator Allan Carlson

said the measure, SB 777, is “a blatant attack on the natural family

 orchestrated by the alternative-lifestyles lobby.”

The exodus call had been issued just one day earlier

 by Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families.

 ”We’re calling upon every California parent to pull their child out of California’s public school system,” he told WND.

“The so-called ‘public schools’ are no longer a safe emotional

 environment for children. Under the new law, schoolchildren

as young as kindergarten will be sexually indoctrinated and

 introduced to homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality,

 over the protests of parents, teachers and even school districts,” he said.

The law at issue went through the California legislature

 as SB 777, and now bans in school texts and activities

any discriminatory bias against those who have chosen

alternative sexual lifestyles, Meredith Turney, legislative liaison

for Capitol Resource Institute, said.

The World Congress noted the law prohibits “instruction”

 or “activity” that is perceived to “promote a discriminatory bias”

 against “gender,” including cross-dressing and sex-change operations as well as “so-called sexual orientation.” adsonar_placementId=1270202;adsonar_pid=663759;adsonar_ps=1451068;adsonar_zw=300;adsonar_zh=250;adsonar_jv=”ads.adsonar.com”;

“It will prohibit anything that suggests that the natural family ?

a man and a woman, married, with children ? is normal or typical,”

 said Carlson. “Thus, under this latest advance toward a Brave

 New World of polymorphous perversion, California textbooks

will no longer be able to use words like ‘mother and father’

and ‘husband and wife,’ because they suggest that heterosexuality is the norm ? even though that is manifestly the case, even in California.”

The organization’s statement called it “unbelievable” that teachers

 and students who oppose same-sex marriage and suggest

homosexuality isn’t innate, or disapprove of cross-dressing

and sex-change operations, could be disciplined as “harassers,”

and students may use the restrooms designated for the gender

 with which they identify.

“California parents who don’t want to see their children

subjected to gender indoctrination will now have no alternative

but to withdraw from the public education system ? which they

 will be required to fund, nonetheless,” Carlson said.

Carlson co-authored with Paul Mero “The Natural Family: A Manifesto,”

 and the World Congress is in the forefront of the international

pro-family movement today. Its most recent congress was in

Warsaw in May, and drew delegates from 62 nations.

While SB 777 provides protections for those promoting alternative

 lifestyle choices, there are no similar protections for students

with traditional or conservative lifestyles and beliefs.

 Offenders will face the wrath of the state Department of Education,

 up to and including lawsuits.

“SB 777 will result in reverse discrimination against students

 with religious and traditional family values. These students

have lost their voice as the direct result of Gov. Schwarzenegger’s

 unbelievable decision. The terms ‘mom and dad’ or ‘husband and wife’

could promote discrimination against homosexuals if a same-sex couple

is not also featured,” said Turney.

“Parents want the assurance that when their children go to school

 they will learn the fundamentals of reading, writing and arithmetic ?

Sure was different when I went to school, we actually learned

the fundamentals of education… I don’t happen to think the

world is better now..what say you?

not social indoctrination regarding alternative sexual lifestyles.

Now that SB 777 is law, schools will in fact become indoctrination centers for sexual experimentation,” she said.

Karen England, chief of CRI, told WND that the law is not a list

of banned words, including “mom” and “dad.” But she said the

requirement is that the law bans discriminatory bias and the effect

will be to ban such terminology.

“Having ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ promotes a discriminatory bias.

 You have to either get rid of ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ or include

everything when talking about [parental issues],” she said.

 ”They [promoters of sexual alternative lifestyles] do consider

that discriminatory.”

Her organization immediately filed with the state a plan to

 take the issue to the state’s voters in a referendum as early as 2008.

Yesterday, the institute issued a list of advisories because officials

have been “overwhelmed” by those who are outraged by the state’s actions.

“By filing the SB 777 referendum with the attorney general,

 CRFI seeks to bring SB 777 before the people of California for vote,

” the advisory said. “The vast majority of Californians are shocked

when they learn of SB 777’s purpose. We believe that if it is brought

 before the people, it will be overturned.”

England’s organization said SB 777, by Sen. Sheila Kuehl,

 D-Santa Monica, “is the most blatant and egregious assault

 on traditional family values that CRI has witnessed in

our 20 years of serving families in the capitol ? SB 777

 actually advances a radical sexual agenda on children as young as five years old.”

“The vague language of this bill could be interpreted to mean

 that instruction that only features a mom and dad or traditional

family would be ‘promoting a discriminatory bias’ against

homosexual couples. It would promote ‘heterosexism’ to only

show male and female couples, without equal time for homosexual,

 transsexual and transgender ‘families,’” she said.

She said while supporters of the activist plan argue those

 conclusions are absurd, the organization actually

“is merely publicizing policies that have already

been implemented in Los Angeles Unified School District regarding transgender students.”

England noted that the district website confirms if a male

perceives himself as a female, “he must be granted access

 to female locker rooms and restrooms. He must be allowed

 to participate in female sports activities.

“If the student wishes to keep his sexual status from his parents, the teachers and administration must refer to the masculine pronoun (him/he) when talking to his parents and use the feminine pronoun (she/her) at school,” the Capitol Resource analysis concluded.

“This shocking policy treats parents as the enemy of the

 transgender student?” the analysis said.

Thomasson had posted on his website examples of situations

he said he expects to see develop:

  • “Please turn to Chapter 10, entitled Famous Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people. History tells us that great Americans such as Walt Whitman and Abraham Lincoln were gay and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was lesbian. It’s likely that even prominent biblical personas were gay, such as King David of Israel and the Apostle Paul. Until this year, the sexual identities of these and other historical figures have been denied by discriminatory textbooks that reflected adversely on LGBT people by ignoring their existence.”
  • “Children, our new picture book has arrived. This is a fantastic story called Daddy’s Wedding. It teaches us that no relationship is bad. See the two men dressed in tuxedos, like they’re at a wedding? Daddy’s Wedding tells us that two men can love each other and even get married?”

Ray Moore, a spokesman for Exodus Mandate, which advocates Christians give up on public schools and either school their children at home or send them to Christian schools, agreed with Thomasson, and went further.

“This really is a call to conservative and Christian pro-family groups to give up this absurd idea of public school reform,” he told WND. “It can’t be done. The longer they talk about saving public schools, the longer they prolong this agony, when they could be setting up new schools.”

He said such plans to indoctrinate children in sexual alternatives is not a surprise at all. “The pagans are simply obeying their god,” he said.

He also warned that the rest of the nation could feel the impact of the decision, because California is known as a trend-setter in educational practice and policy.

“California always has been on the cutting edge of trends,

 sometimes good and sometimes bad,” Moore said.

“What happens in California sometimes can spread nationwide.

“I do know textbook publishers blow with the wind,” Thomasson added, “whether they blow from Texas or California, because those are the biggest states. That’s how they sell books.”

He said textbook editors now have a new agenda to satisfy if they want to sell their products in California. “We could see those [new] books within a year or two.”

As WND reported, a board member for the homosexual advocacy group Equality California verbally attacked and threatened CRI for its opposition to the bill earlier.

The board member sent an e-mail and video to CRI threatening the group would be buried if it continued efforts opposing the homosexual advocacy.

“The shocking hate mail we received shows that those behind this legislation do not promote true tolerance,” said England. “Only politically correct speech will be tolerated. Those with religious or traditional moral beliefs will not be allowed to express their opinions in public schools.”

She also cited an informational document published by the Gay-Straight Alliance Network and the Transgender Law Center that already has outlined what it believes to be nondiscriminatory treatment in the school system.

“If you want to use a restroom that matches your gender identity ? you should be allowed to do so,” it advises. “Whenever students are divided up into boys and girls, you should be allowed to join the group or participate in the program that matches your gender identity as much as possible.”

Further, the groups advise, “If you change your name to one that better matches your gender identity, a school needs to use that name to refer to you.” The advocacy group also warns schools against bringing parents into any such discussion with students.

WND has documented a number of earlier cases in which educators, including leaders in California, have taken it upon themselves to promote a homosexual lifestyle to children under their charge.

WND reported California Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell, under whose supervision hundreds of thousands of children are being educated, has used his state position and taxpayer-funded stationery to praise a “gay” pride event used in the past to expose children to sexually explicit activities.

That drew vehement objections from several educators, including Priscilla Schreiber, the president of the Grossmont Unified High School District governing board.

“I am outraged that a person in this high-ranking elected position would advocate an event where diversity is not just being celebrated but where pornography and indecent exposure is being perpetrated on the young and innocent children of our communities,” she said.

People, we better come out of our slumber, it is just a matter of time before Christians will be thrown to the lions.. after all, are we not portrayed in the movies, tv etc: as haters, and all manner of evil. Funny how right is now wrong and wrong is right..

  1. OH~MY~Goodness!!! Why can’t things just be the way the used to be? SImple-Respect-One Nation Under GOD-and on-and on! I just can’t type right now-lol! Scary World we are living in right now. Who would have ever thought it would come to this? WHEW!

    Sweetie, I wish they were in many ways. Yes, there is no respect and our country or our people are asleep at the wheel when it comes to our faith and making a lot of noise. I never thought in my lifetime it would come to this either. It would be very difficult to teach under these circumstances. :(!
    :)Hugs

  2. “…students may use the restrooms designated for the gender with which they identify.”

    I can see a lot of horny young boys suddenly feeling feminine when it comes to the bathroom. This is just sick, i guess the rights of women to privacy is not equal to the right of the ‘confused’.

    It’s just unbelievable, and parent who pull their children out of these schools will have to still fund them, probably just the way the progressives want it eh.

    If people don’t stand up to them now, they’ll have to let it all be torn down and run the risk of being consumed by it all before the painful lessons are learnt.

    MK, it is unbelievable. I just hope the people in California do rise up and stop it or it will be exactly as you say. We will all be consumed cuz as California goes, generally so does the rest of us. Just hope it is not a trainwreck soon. It sure seems to be loose on the track.

  3. Angie, if you haven’t seen the NAMBLA (North American Man Boy Love Association) http://www.nambla.org/ , go there–wait—brace yourself—okay, now check out the 11-to-whatever-age boys they advocate are old enough to decide that they are in love with a man. What I find disturbing is that they have been around since the 70s-80s but all of this appears to be coming to fruition in a very shocking way. Kids first.

    Also, if you do a search on the WorldNetDaily site, you can find some horrifying stories about homosexual crimes. I say that b/c they are so indignant about hate crimes, but these other stories are not publicized and sensationalized. It’s like giving a license to perverts. I know all gays are not like that any more than all others in society and I have family members who I dearly love who are gay, but we are not dealing with normal circumstances, therefore, normal people. Did you ever see the pics from the Folsom St. Festival in San Fran? In one, they removed all of the disciples and Jesus from the Last Supper and replaced them with GLBTTXYZ members and other debauchery. Live how you choose but leave God and the children out of it. I am astounded to be living in such a day as to have this forced upon families. A couple in Mass. recently lost a case in which they did not want a story about a gay prince read to their 2nd grader. btw, you know OBama thinks they’re going to know anyway, so why not from the school? The very same reason i don’t advocate Bible studies at PS! Who’s qualified?!?

    Thanks for another great post and the links!

    Love, Hugs and PRAYERS Sister Friend!!

    You are welcome, thanks for the links, I will check them. Yes I have hear of Nambla, disgusting child abuse in my opinion. I am heartsick with all of this. Poor people or even struggling middle class cannot afford to send their children in many cases to private christian schools, and to think that childrens little minds could be affected in this way is the same as abuse, Mind abuse if you will. I as you, think if someone wants that lifestyle fine..but don’t force it or subject it on me and mine if it is not my choice. I want as a parent to be shaping my child or grandchildren with Godly values. Sodom and Gomorrah is just fine in their book. How pitiful, I hope the citizens of California rise up and stop this utter nonsense and loss of Christian rights and values.

    Blessings to you Sista!

  4. Meant NAMBLA has been around since the 70s-80s, not the idea of children and adults. . . siiiighhhh. . .

    Knew what you meant girlfriend..we got a little overload..LOL!

  5. You gotta go over to worldnetdaily and see the Larry Sinclair story about OBama! I saw it late one night but didn’t pay it much attention—now the guy has a lawsuit aginst OBama. Says he snorted coke and had sex with OB in ’99. . . will see how this pans out. If this guy’s a liar, he just boosted OB in sympathy support, but says he’ll do a polygraph. Publicity stunt? Truth? OBama needs to come clean about a lot of things, I believe, but whether this is one remains to be seen.

    Hey, Larry Craig didn’t even get high or manage to “hook up”! He was found guilty last week.

    The Duke boys got no sympathy or legal fee funds raised, to my knowledge, either.

    One of our local channels has been doing a series of “hot spots” where men go to pick up other men. . .Books-a-million bathroom, hospital libraries, parks down by the river where kids play, gas station bathrooms, bar bathrooms—what is it with the bathroom?? I remember reading about Roman public bath houses. Is there a correlation?

    I saw that video and read the report. Started to post it but wanted more facts. Obama has not responded the last I heard. The guy took a polygraph and passed with flying colors. Dunno on this one. Will probably wait a bit to see how the crow flys..know what I mean?

    What an interesting point you make with the bath houses. You may be on to something. Hmmm..

  6. Wow, the terminator is really out to destroy on this one. If I were a California resident, I’d be for getting out now…Maybe move to the homeschool capital of the U.S., Texas where you’ll be able to keep your head above water a bit longer. This is a horrifying and sickening attack on defenseless children. If we sit idly by this time, we’re going to lose them.

    If I lived there, I would try to fight it but when all else failed, I would hope I would be able financially to take my children away from there, on the other hand, if it is not stopped then it is just a matter of time before it hits the rest of the country.

  7. This very issue has been discussed on Dr. James Dobson’s radio program. A keynote speaker gave an address to a large evangelical gathering, and it was broadcast over the airwaves in retro. I can’t recall the speaker’s name, but his presentation was right on where this smoldering problem is gathering momentum. I’ll check Dobson’s site to see if the program is archived regarding the Mom Dad/Homo issue. Makes me sick to my stomach, for we are living in perilous times.

    Me too, Pink Biz, I hope the people rise up and stop this before it spreads.

  8. Didn’t readily find the radio link, but did a couple of archived articles. Dobson’s Focus on the Family,

    Thank you so much PB. love the links and I am sure others will too.

  9. Wow Angie, thanks for this information! I’ve not heard anything about this!

    Things that make ya go hmmm…

    Could this be the spring board for the beginning of a mass exodus from public schools? Not just in CA but for all states? Government would then spend less as we spend more for private schools? Less Federal funding too.

    This makes me want educational vouchers even more! I’d rather band together with like minded individuals and home school than to subject my kids to some of the stuff coming down the pike…for pity sakes, we have bomb/stranger danger drills in our elementary schools now! But I want my money BACK from the government for education please!

    Right with you Canvasgrey. Actually the children home schooled have been outperforming public education.. Go figure, government (us taxpayers) spends over 8,000 per year per student. Doubt they would give us our money back, I understand IRS is showing some favoritism to Scientology, of course Christians and Jews have not been afforded that courtesy. Will do post on it this week.
