SACRAMENTO â€“ A pro-family group is calling on California parents to pull their kids out of school after the state instituted a mandatory "gay" day in public schools in honor of Harvey Milk â€“ a homosexual activist and reported sexual predator, as well as an advocate for Jim Jones, leader of the massacred hundreds in Jonestown, Guyana.
SaveCalifornia.com led a statewide battle against "Harvey Milk Day" before California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the S.B. 572 on Oct. 12.
The bill designates May 22 â€“ Milk's birthday â€“ a date of "special significance" and encourages all California public schools to "conduct suitable commemorative exercises â€¦ remembering the life of Harvey Milk and recognizing his accomplishments as well as the contributions he made to this state."
It requires no parental consent for student participation.
SaveCalifornia President Randy Thomasson is warning parents to keep their sons and daughters home. His group has launched a boycott, urging parents to pull their children out of school for a day, a week or even all year if they can.
"Fathers and mothers are angry about Harvey Milk Day pushing this extreme, perverse role model upon their kids," Thomasson said. "Children belong to parents, not to the state! Since SB 572 has no opt-out, boycotting Harvey Milk Day and pulling their children out of the imploding government school system is the only way for parents to protect their girls and boys."
The group believes the boycott will also send a strong message to school districts that they should not use class time to celebrate Harvey Milk Day or they will risk losing daily attendance funds.
SaveCalifornia noted that even school districts in traditionally conservative areas are allowing teachers to promote Harvey Milk.
According to the Santa Clarita Signal, William S. Hart Union High School District Spokeswoman said teachers may include discussion of Milk in their curriculums.
"If it happens to be in a literature class or a social studies class, it can be included as long as it's related to the topic," she said.
According to the report, "Teachers will be encouraged to conduct exercises recalling Milk's life and contributions to the state."
SaveCalifornia reports that Equality California, a California homosexual political activism group, is planning to develop a curriculum to promote Harvey Milk's values in public schools.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, "The measure was backed by Equality California, the largest gay-rights organization in the state. Geoff Kors, executive director of the group, said it would develop curriculum for schools and teachers to use on Milk's birthday."
S.B. 572 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."
