...As if Californians didn't already have enough to be concerned about, their governor is reportedly on the verge of signing yet another anti-family bill. Groups such as the Campaign for California Families and the Pasadena-based Christian Educators Association International are incensed that Gov. Gray Davis is expected to sign into law SB 71 -- legislation the groups say will abolish parents' rights to be asked before sex surveys can be given to one's child in a public school. Under current law, schools must have the written permission of parents before any sex tests, questionnaires, surveys, or examinations can be administered to children. Randy Thomasson of the Campaign for California Families (savecalifornia.com) says the legislation "allows any sex question imaginable to be asked of schoolchildren behind their parents' backs." He wonders if anything is sacred anymore. "How is it that written parental permission is required before a child can go on a field trip, but! no parental permission will be required before children are led on sexual mind trips about losing their virginity, masturbation, homosexuality, and cross-dressing?" he asks. Materials used in the new system of "comprehensive sexual health education" established under the bill are required to promote the transsexual and homosexual agenda, says CEAI. The materials also dismiss the value of marriage by teaching "respect for committed relationships." Forrest Turpen of the Christian Educators Association International (ceai.org) says Davis, who is currently facing a recall election, is risking the wrath of parents and other pro-family voters. "This abomination is actually state-sponsored social engineering of sexual identity," Turpen says. SB 71 has now passed both the California State Senate and Assembly. Both pro-family groups believe that because of higher-profile political issues currently in the Golden State, Davis and his "accomplices" in the California legislature ! are hoping SB 71 will "slip under the radar" and go unnoticed by both the media and voters.
