PREDICTION NOW A REALITY: "MOMS & DADS" BANNED IN CAL. SCHOOLS
What started out as a prediction less than one year ago has become a reality thanks to California's lawmakers and liberal Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
In December 2006, author and political consultant Nathan Tabor wrote a story about the words "mom" and "dad" being banned in the United Kingdom. The British law prohibits nurses and hospitals from using the terms "mom," "dad," "wife," "husband," or "married."
"As part of Britain's National Health Service's new, politically correct policy guide, use of the above terms is considered homophobic and therefore requires anti-homophobic rules for their health care workers. Therefore, words such as mum and dad are banned," Tabor quoted a reporter from England's Daily Mail as saying.
Tabor ended his story about Britain's path to political correctness by stating, "If Americans think these activities are peculiar to the United Kingdom, they better think again."
"Surprisingly, it's taken less than a year for this politically-correct insanity to reach the United States. I knew it would happen; I just didn't suspect it would happen this quickly," said political consultant Michael Baker.
The terms "mom and dad" are now completely banned in California's school system and teachers are being ordered to use euphemisms for those terms. In addition, "husband and wife" are also banned under this new law signed by Gov. Schwarzenegger. The newly signed law also mandates public schools to allow boys to use girls restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa, if they choose to do so.
"With this decision, Gov. Schwartzeneggr has told parents that their values are irrelevant," said Police Lieutenant Steve Rogers, former president of Cops for Christ.
"When are parents going to wake up and pull their children out of the public schools?" he asked rhetorically.
"This is the kind of activity that is replacing real teaching in government schools," claims a Northern New Jersey public school teacher and administrator who requested anonymity for fear of retribution from the Board of Education and the teachers' union officials.
"We [teachers] give the kids lunches, we teach them how to use condoms, we instruct them about sex including gay sex, we simulate Islam, and in our spare time we teach our pupils how to read and write," she said.
"More and more Americans are starting to wake up to find their country and its traditions being slowly torn down by those who worship at the altar of the politically-correct orthodoxy," claims political strategist Baker.
"I shudder to think how millions of California children will be led astray, how marriage will be destroyed, and how immorality will step on the neck of morality when Governor Schwarzenegger signs five anti-family bills into law. The 'Terminator' has signed a very bad bill!" said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families.
"Meanwhile, homosexuals are given a free hand to do whatever they want to America's little children. They know that the church leadership is totally asleep at the wheel, said a New Jersey Methodist pastor.
"As The saying goes: when the cat's away, the mice will play," he added.
With this decision, Gov. Schwarzenegger has told parents that their values are irrelevant. Many parents will have no choice but to pull their children out of the public schools that have now become sexualized indoctrination centers.
Thomasson is disappointed with California's Christian pastors and elders. In the last five days, many individuals and several businesses have responded to CCF's action alert. However, to date, only one church out of thousands, has faxed in veto letters to the liberal Schwarzenegger's office in Sacramento.
"This is not right, since the majority of pastors in California oppose sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren (SB 777 and AB 394), oppose demeaning marriage (AB 43 and AB 102), and oppose forcing the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda on businesses, organizations, and churches (AB 14)," said Thomasson.
According to the pro-family think-tank The Howard Center, with good reason, school administrators worry when students turn violent, making them ever watchful for ways to curtail such violence. Some administrators have expressed hopes of containing such violence by involving students in sports programs.
However, studies suggest that such hopes are misplaced. What students need to restrain their violent impulses is involvement not with a sports team, but rather involvement with a two-parent family. Indeed, a new study dampens any enthusiasm for sports as a strategy for making schools safer, while reinforcing confidence in the intact family as a social safeguard. Quite simply, banning the words "mother and father" or "mom and dad" helps no one.
Conservative analysts have warned that schools throughout the country will be impacted by the Schwarzenegger decision. The bills signed by Schwarzenegger ban anything in public schools that could be interpreted as negative toward homosexuality, bisexuality and other alternative lifestyle choices.
There are no similar protections for students with traditional or conservative lifestyles and beliefs, however.
In Portland, Oregon, a recent 20/20 program aired a piece about little boys and girls playfully slapping each other on the buttocks. The cops arrested the boys -- Cory Mashburn, and Ryan Cornelison -- for touching the girls (but didn't arrest any girls), and now California Governor Schwarzenegger signes a Bill into laws that allows girls and boys to go into each other's bathrooms.
"Are the cops ever going to wake up and stop following these insane orders for a paycheck?" asked Lt. Steve Rogers, the former president of The God Squad, a Christian organization for police officers.
Social analyst Bryce Christensen describes home as "a place sanctified by the abiding ties of wedlock, parenthood, and family obligation; a place demanding sacrifice and devotion but promising loving care and warm acceptance," a place anchored in turn in a specific geographic locale.
Conservative activist Mike Baker said, "The church leadership is insane for their political correctness. Your political leaders are insane for passing these laws. Your district attorneys are insane for prosecuting these senseless cases, and the cops are insane for enforcing these insane laws."
And nature educator Wes Jackson asks whether schools should be offering a new major in what amounts to homosexual studies.
