California Bill Is 'Sexual-Agenda Bomb,' Group Says

( - Legislation approved Wednesday by the California Senate Judiciary Committee is "a sexual-agenda bomb dressed up as a child-caring Easter egg," a conservative group charged.

SB 1437, which would amend the state's education code by adding the words "gender" and "sexual orientation" to its anti-discrimination policy, would force school districts to "teach school children as young as kindergarten to accept and embrace transsexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality in all its forms," according to Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families (CCF).

This is the letter I sent to Governor Schwarzenegger this evening, and would encourage you Californians to do the same. His email address is:

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger,

I would like to voice my opposition to the bill known as SB1437, and encourage you to veto it before the ink dries.

Americans should be recognized for their great accomplishments and heroism, not their sexual orientation.

For example, Mark Bingham is considered a hero on Flight 93, not because of his sexual orientation, but because he acted without regard for his life.

Tom Burnett is considered a hero on flight 93, not because of his sexual orientation, but because he too, acted without regard for his life.

Though these two men had different sexual orientations, they both acted heroically, not because of their orientation, but because they were great Americans and should be recognized as such. Not great heterosexuals or great homosexuals, just great Americans. Period.

Sir, please veto SB1437.

Thank you Sir for your service to our great state of California.
