I phoned Gov. Schwarzenegger's office this morning. If you're a CA resident, please consider taking half a minute out of your day to urge our governor to oppose 'Harvey Milk Gay Day' (SB 572) in California Public Schools.
You can call, email, tweet or fax (or all of the above). Before October 11 please. Today is good. :)
BILL FACTS: SB 572 would establish every May 22 as "Harvey Milk Day" in K-12 public schools in California. Children would be taught to admire the life and values of late homosexual activist Harvey Milk, of whom the bill states: "...perhaps more than any other modern figure, Harvey Milk's life and political career embody the rise of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights movement in California, across the nation, and throughout the world."
Under SB 572, children would perform "suitable commemorative exercises," remembering the "life," "accomplishments," and "contributions" of Harvey Milk -- in other words, the entire homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda for which Milk advocated. There is no definition or limit to these "exercises," which could include gay pride parades, cross-dressing contests and mock gay weddings, or anything else Milk supported.
SB 572 would affect children as young as kindergarten. There is no parental notification or consent written into the bill.
