California Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday signed a bill that will punish any entity or program that accepts any state assistance unless it accepts homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality. It was the first of four bills aimed at the schools by homosexual activists.
“This isn't legitimate education; it's indoctrination on steroids,” said Jan LaRue, Concerned Women for America's chief counsel.
Penny Harrington, CWA of California’s legislative director, said the new law could be construed to bar tuition assistance to any student for use at a Christian school. “The tuition is so high at private schools that families need everything they can get to stay afloat,” Harrington said.
Sponsored by lesbian activist Sen. Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica), SB 1441 says that “any program or activity” that “receives any financial assistance from the state” must give “full and equal access” to Californians without regard to “race, national origin, ethnic group identification, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, color, or disability....”
...CWA’s LaRue warned that unless churches do more to oppose open assaults on traditional values, there will be more of the same.
“Pastors, do we hear your voices speaking out to save the next generation from being led into an immoral and unhealthy lifestyle? Some of you need to stop pretending that moral issues are only political,” LaRue said. “Stop hiding behind an illusory wall of separation between church and state and start speaking truth to government.”
