Exodus: California Christian Groups Unite to Remove Children from Public Schools – New Laws Mandate the Positive Potrayal of Homosexuality in Public Schools

I mentioned this in a comment on my post titled “If I were an Atheist – I’d be afraid of Home Schooling!

Higher and higher taxes will insure that home schooling is the “most attractive” option for the average family who “wants to” provide a quality education in the future (home schoolers succeed on an average of $600 annually). Over bloated, centralized, top down “high costing bureaucracy” is what is draining much needed the money from government school system, and if you expect them to de-centralized it, think again – they are currently thinking about centralizing health care. “Centralization” is the air that Washington breaths. Its very hard for them to take their paws off of anything that they control…

Also, as the homosexual community tries to push it ethics into to public school system, and they will succeed because they are relentless, http://www.massresistance.com/ if they loose today – they come back tomorrow – or if they have to, they will sneak their agenda into bills, like they recently did in California. This too will force more and more Christians, and traditional parents, to opt out of the current system, into the arms of homeschooling, especially now days with so many people networking in the churches, and having friends, who already do home school (and these friends are eager to help new families get started!) home schooling will boon!

My whole point of the post was to show “That the only real alternative if parents want “real education” for their children will come from private and religious sources, especially from home schooling. For over 25 years now, the Christian home schooling community has been developing very low cost, world view minded curriculum.

All the alternative Christain“educational infrastructure” is in place. Much of this curriculum has been developed with the intent to thoroughly train and disciple the next generation of Christian soldiers. In a few short generations, home schoolers will be the best and the brightest – leaders in every area our culture, and will have been thoroughly inculcated with a biblical world-view rather than an atheistic government educated world-view.”

And, It is already beginning to happen!

SACRAMENTO, California, February 7, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Several Christian groups have formed a coalition to boycott the California public school system, following legislation signed into law by Governor Schwarzenegger that will indoctrinate children to favor sodomy as a healthy and normal lifestyle choice.

A variety of Christian grassroots organizations have joined together in calling for an “exodus” from the California public school system in an effort to save children from the subversive indoctrination (See LifeSiteNews Coverage: http://www.lifesite.net/ldn/2007/may/07052503.html). The coalition includes Eagle Forum, the Campaign for Children and Families, and Exodus Mandate, as well as ten others.

“Many of us have worked to reform public schools,” said Phyllis Schlafly, President of Eagle Forum, in an interview with Christian Newswire. “Unfortunately, SB 777 and the related legislation represent a repudiation of 2,000 years of Christian moral teaching on human sexuality, marriage, and the family. The result is that California’s schools are now promoting behaviors and lifestyles that are physically and spiritually dangerous for children. Consequently, in California, parents must try to find alternatives to the public schools.”

Dr. Ron Gleason, the Chairman for California Exodus and pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church in Yorba Linda, California, said, upon accepting the role of chairman, that education is of tantamount importance, but that it is failing in the States.

“As a parent and grandparent, I want those near and dear to me to have quality education,” he said. “This country excels in every social, economical, scientific, and political category known to man, but gets low grades on the education of its children. We should be leading the world in developing well-educated young people. This role is first and foremost the responsibility of parents.”

“First, the law allowed public schools to voluntarily promote homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality,” said Randy Thomasson of the California-based Campaign for Children and Families. “Then the law required public schools to accept homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual teachers as role models for impressionable children. Now the law has been changed to effectively require the positive portrayal of homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality to six million children in California government-controlled schools. To rescue their children, loving parents need to find an alternative to government schools, and every church needs to make it a priority to help parents be in charge of their children’s education again.”

California law now requires schools to portray homosexuality and bisexuality as positive lifestyle choices to students. The bill was signed into law in October of 2007, and a referendum campaign was launched to overturn the law in November. The campaign fell short on the needed votes, gathering only 350,000 of the necessary 434,000.
