Freedom of speech is a fundamental American freedom and a human right, and there’s no place that this right should be more valued and protected than America’s colleges and universities. A university exists to educate students and advance the frontiers of human knowledge, and does so by acting as a “marketplace of ideas” where ideas compete. The intellectual vitality of a university depends on this competition—something that cannot happen properly when students or faculty members fear punishment for expressing views that might be unpopular with the public at large or disfavored by university administrators. Nevertheless, freedom of speech is under continuous threat at many of America’s campuses, pushed aside in favor of politics, comfort, or simply a desire to avoid controversy. As a result, speech codes dictating what may or may not be said, “free speech zones” confining college free speech to tiny areas of campus, and administrative attempts to punish or repress campus free speech on a case-by-case basis are common today in academia.
On a state wide level, the entire public educational system has been hijacked by the California Teachers Association, legislators, and bureaucrats who seek to eliminate basic parental rights and to replace parents in this country seek to instill in their children.
The errant classification of biblical worldview on homosexuality as “hatred and ignorance” has spiraled into an aggressive theme of intolerance within the California public school system toward Christians.
For many years, the vast majority of Christian teachers, administrators, and parents have failed to adequately influence public education on a statewide level. During the last decade, in particular, we have seen a radical departure from traditional values in public schools.
As we look toward the future, it has become clear that after
years of strategic maneuvering, enemies of faith and family have
gained an unprecedented stronghold within the public school system
through unconscionable legislation and domination by the California
Teachers Association (CTA), a union representing California
teachers, counselors, psychologists, nurses, and community college
professors. Boasting a membership of 325,000, the CTA is one of
the most powerful political groups in California.
Recently, the CTA has closely allied itself with radical organizations promoting “gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and questioning” issues. “Gender liberation” will likely be the new vogue term used to describe the tidal wave that is fast approaching the shores of the California public school system.
SB 48 is a new California law that requires all KW12 public schools, including charter schools, to include teachings that positively portray homosexual, bisexual, and transgendered individuals in the history social sciences. The historyWsocial sciences curriculum under the framework of the California Department of Education includes the study of history, geography, civics, and economics
The ultimate effect is that textbooks will be rewritten, and students will be given supplemental materials that focus on the homosexual preferences of prominent persons in social sciences. Publishers will now be
obligated to rewrite textbooks, replacing prominent figures with more obscure persons solely for the purpose of acknowledging people within the LGBT community.
Cunningly titled the Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful (FAIR) Education Act, SB 48 is an effort to rewrite history for the purpose of providing a platform for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transsexuals. The Act was authored by homosexual State Senator Mark Leno and signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown, and it became effective on January 1, 2012. SB 48 requires all public schools to begin emphasizing LGBT individuals throughout history, even for children in kindergarten. The sponsors of the law were Equality California and GayWStraight Alliance Network—organizations that seem to have unfettered political access in the State Capitol.
Moreover, the law forbids curriculum from including any “sectarian or denominational doctrine or propaganda contrary to law.” In other words, a Christian—or virtually any other religious worldview on the subjects of gender and sexual orientation—must be silenced. This body of law clearly censors any view that refuses to endorse homosexual and bisexual conduct.
The last twenty-five years have been particularly devastating
in regard to parental rights in California. The legal principle
that parents have a fundamental right to raise their children is
substantially ignored in California law, which often gives public
schools priority over parents in educating children, in administering
medical treatment, and in providing mental health counseling.
Not only can a child receive a confidential abortion, but a
minor who is 12 years of age or older and who may have come into
contact with an infectious, contagious, or communicable disease
may consent to medical care related to the diagnosis or treatment
of the disease, if the disease or condition is one that is required by
law or regulation to be reported to the local health officer or is a
sexually transmitted disease. Ultimately, California law has created
a scenario where children may be infected with serious diseases
and receive treatment for those diseases without the parents ever
knowing that their child is sick. It is ironic that although California
law prohibits children from drinking alcohol under age 21, it allows
children to request and receive treatment for sexually transmitted
As current educational policies discussed previously
demonstrate, not only have schools pushed religion out of the public
school system, but they have become increasingly hostile toward
students and teachers who espouse Christian views.
If children are in middle school or high school (or in districts
that have adopted comprehensive sexual health education, in
elementary school), parents can ask the teachers to see the materials
presented during sex education courses. They can also legally
demand, in writing, that their children opt out of sex educationm
however, the right to opt out of sex education does not apply to
content relating to discrimination education. Forms can be requested
