PRO-SODOMY BILL SPARKS CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOL EXODUS
�We�re Here, we�re queer, we�re in the classroom.�
Last year, California Governor Schwarzenegger signed legislation mandating that public school children as young as 5 years old be indoctrinated to accept the abnormal homosexual lifestyle and other forms of sexual deviancy.
Christians are saying enough is enough. A broad coalition of Christian grassroots organizations have joined forces to call for California families and churches to rescue their children from California's public schools. 600,000 students may leave the California schools this year alone through their efforts.
The growing coalition includes Eagle Forum, the Campaign for Children and Families, Exodus Mandate, and ten more sponsors, five of which are based in California. These organizations will be providing information to California parents and pastors concerning the new school legislation, how it mainstreams sexual deviancy, and what they can do about it.

What SB 777 Means for Your Children
With the passage of SB 777, homosexual activists now have state approval and a wide open door to promote their corrupting agenda. SB 777 forces schoolchildren to support all aspects of transexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality, mandating changes to all textbooks, instructional materials, and school activities. Here is brief outline of the changes to California code.
Bruce Shortt, author of The Harsh Truth About Public Schools, notes, �No longer will children raised in these schools understand that God made us male and female. Children will be told that because there are many sexual orientations and gender identities, they simply have to reach their own conclusions about which sexual orientation and gender �possibilities� are �right for them.� Along with this will come the message that you really can�t tell whether you like something unless you have tried it. The likely consequences of this for children, the institution of the family, our churches, and our culture are horrendous.�
Phyllis Schlafly, President of Eagle Forum conveys the urgency, �Many of us have worked to reform public schools. 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.�
Randy Thomasson of the California-based Campaign for Children and Families has witnessed the attack on parental rights over the last several years, �First, the law allowed public schools to voluntarily promote homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality. 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.�
We have never been faced with a threat this great to schoolchildren�s innocence. Exposing young children to ideas and images of homosexuality leaves lasting and corrupting impressions which cannot be easily removed. "Private schools and homeschooling will be the only sanctuary left for parents in California who love their children and want to protect their sexual innocence." Says Thomasson. (WND, Oct. 16th)
The California Crisis, an America Crisis
�The Crisis in California marks the beginning of a new era of persecution in the history of state sponsored, public schools,� says E. Ray Moore, coalition leader and founder of Exodus Mandate. �It is not just a California Crisis but an American Crisis. The passage of SB 777 and AB 394 by the California legislature in 2007 mandates the systematic destruction of the traditional family.�
"There's no stopping this movement. I think they're going to take over the entire system in the next two to five years. "I can't predict how fast the virus will run throughout the public school system, but I think it cannot be stopped," he said. �It is an incredible opportunity for Exodus Mandate to do what we do best, to advocate the biblical message Christian children need Christian education.�
Moore went on to call for Christians to be obedient, "You are being irresponsible as a parent to put your child in a public school," Moore said. We must exercise our religious freedom now and remove our children from godless and pagan public schools.�
"If traditional minded people abandon that system in enough numbers, it will implode. By leaving your children there as a Christian you're exposing them to extreme moral danger. You can't immunize them with a few hours of Bible study during the week," he said. (WND, Oct. 16th)
A Campaign worth Supporting
While the �anybody but Hillary� express will be gaining steam towards November, Exodus California will be working overtime using creative ideas such as teacher and parental pull out pledges to reach their threefold goals:
Moore continues, �As long as the majority of Christians keep their children in the Humanist school systems we can�t win the culture war. To think otherwise doesn�t pass the common sense test or the theology test.�
"This really is a call to conservative and Christian pro-family groups to give up this absurd idea of public school reform. It can't be done. The longer they talk about saving public schools, the longer they prolong this agony, when they could be setting up new schools." (WND, Oct. 16th)
It�s time to get behind a campaign that will have eternal benefits.
Every Christian ministry should hitch one horse to the exodus wagon. Continuing to reform the public schools is akin to putting polish on rotting wood. We have a new teacher in California, one who promotes sodomy and radically opposes the traditional family.
The student in the end becomes like his teacher.
The new school year starts in August.
