Coming Soon To A School Textbook Near Your Child

Get ready for this.

The Fair, Accurate, Inclusive and Respectful (FAIR) Education Act will amend the Education Code to include social sciences instruction on the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. This bill will also prohibit discriminatory instruction and discriminatory materials from being adopted by the State Board of Education.

So who are some of the great people of history who will now be outed to your children?

  • King Richard I The Lionhearted
  • King James I (who commissioned the KJV Bible)
  • President George Washington
  • Alexander Hamilton
  • President James Buchanan
  • Susan B. Anthony
  • J. Edgar Hoover
  • Eleanor Roosevelt
  • Walt Whitman
Now if that doesn't bother you too much,  check these names and then take your temperature.

  • Ruth and Naomi
  • King David and Jonathan
  • The Prophet Daniel and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
  • St. John the Evangelist
  • The Apostle, Paul and Timothy

It might be time to take your children out of public school.

Source - Queers In History

ADDED 10-14-11
Since posting this, I have found many sources which claim that Jesus was gay.  
All I'm saying is that, for the most part, identifying ancient gay people is a purely speculative exercise of the willing with an agenda.  Evidence is sketchy at best and is usually interpreted through 21st century western culture.  
So don't be surprised to see Jesus' name among the queers who have made contributions to our history in the pages of California's elementary textbooks.

Reminds me of the gay folks from college: they would spend so much of their time doing a game of "oh, he's gay", "she's gay", etc, etc, etc.... it looks like those people I went to college with are writing school books now...

I am wondering what career choice is left to me. 15 years in the education field and... ugg. Hopefully the districts will ignore this garbage. My district has ignored Harvey Milk Day...

What a bunch of !@#%@#%!#$^!#$^... nope... don't feel better...

You're welcome to borrow the expletive that I coined - "Happycrap." It's not as powerful as most that I can't say but it does make me feel better.

It is interesting that they include the word "accurate" in the name of their act. Words are misused and mangled these days to hide the truth.

I'm sad that some Christian parents cared enough to sign a petition but won't care enough to remove their children from the indoctrination.

Jon and I are going round and round about the implications of this bill. Do you quit? Do you ignore it & hope it gathers dust on the shelf like all the other history/science curr? Do you skip pages? Do you just teach it as history because the parents obviously don't care anyway (okay, that isn't an option for us but some Christian teachers are saying this)?

I don't get it and honestly I struggle with disappointment in my fellow Christians who are so willing to just turn a blind eye. They really don't care.

May I borrow "Happycrap" please? (I'll put in a good word for your blog.) I snorted with amusement into the netbook when I read that word!

This hasn't been as much of an issue in Australia until fairly recently. I find it disturbing that many Christians seem to think they must send their children to school to be a witness...when they themselves don't even speak up about the Lord.

I believe bringing children up in a solid, Christ-centred atmosphere is the best start in life they can get. I'm glad I was homeschooled for grades 8-12! All you people who are currently homeschooling children - keep up the good work! And anyone who is thinking about it - go for it!

@ Patience,

I'd be happy to share my word. It has worked very satisfactorily for me. Enjoy.

Actually James I was a switch hitter not just a happy camper.

The only reason I am not in panic mode as a public school teacher is that I am a Christian. They may fire me but I have read the book and I know who wins.

Grace and peace.
