California Law: "Parents Free to 'Advise' Children On Sexuality"

The state of California has deceptively undermined parental authority with their "California Healthy Youth Act" law.

Parents are now discovering that parental rights come after the state's right to indoctrinate their children.

According to the so-called "Healthy Youth Act," parents can no longer remove their children for sex-ed classes but are "free to advise their children" on human sexuality.

Parents and grandparents in the other 49 states should be informed.

Although the so-called "Healthy Youth Act" was passed in 2015, parents are only now realizing the impact---and the intent of the deceptive law.

These new rules of authority recently came to light from a March (2018) memo written by attorney Ronald Wenkart, general counsel for the Orange County Public School District.

Although the memo was addressed to the Orange County Board of Education, it soon became public.

Elizabeth Johnson, well known as the "Activist Mommy" got hold of it and began to inform parents. Her story was then picked up by some news organizations.

Johnson was particularly angered by Wenkart's suggestion that parents are "free to advise" their children of any sex-ed content they disagree with---after their children sit through the classroom instructions.

That should anger every parent, regardless of their particular beliefs or worldview.

Johnson says, "This is a clear violation of every parent's First Amendment right..."to freely practice their religion as they are literally barred by law from even being notified when their children are being exposed to confusing, highly inappropriate subject matter."

Parents can just opt-out. Right?

Johnson says, "While California educational code explicitly states that parents may opt out of sex ed classes for their children, the memo released by the OCDE clarifies that it does 'not' allow parents to opt-out of educational material relating to gender identity and sexual orientation."

She says, "Further examination of the memo in full clarifies that parents may not opt-out of anything discussed in a class, workshop, or assembly at school that does not directly refer to reproductive organs or their functions.

"That means your school can hold all the transgender transition ceremonies they want," she says, and "read 'I Am Jazz' to your kindergartner all they want, celebrate gay pride, transgenderism, gender fluidity , and all the unbiblical confusion they want to, and you have no right to shield your own children from it."

She's right.

Brad Dacus, a Christian attorney with Pacific Justice Institute in California, told One News Now, "Parents can still pull their children out of classes for explicit descriptions of sex acts but the law states they must remain seated for all other instruction, including liberal instruction on gender identity and sexual orientation."

Johnson says, "Enough is enough, we MUST make our voices heard."

This is isolated, right?

It isn't. This story is being played out in varying degrees in public schools across our country.

Last year I wrote an article about a teacher leading a "Transition Ceremony" in a class of kindergarteners.

Their are countless episodes of schools enforcing this kind of indoctrination on our youngest children.

Not only in California, but Maine as well, where parents discovered a similar situation with the "I am Jazz" book, the book most often used for indoctrination in the classroom.

Amazon describes the book like this:
“From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body. She loved pink and dressing up as a mermaid and didn’t feel like herself in boys’ clothing. This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who said that Jazz was transgender and that she was born that way. Jazz’s story is based on her real-life experience and she tells it in a simple, clear way that will be appreciated by picture book readers, their parents, and teachers.”

I often hear the homosexual activists claim they are not trying to "indoctrinate" or "recruit" children.

Consider this.

Huffington Post, a widely read, left leaning publication published an article, titled "I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children Into My LGBTQ Agenda (And I'm Not A Bit Sorry)."

While this may not represent every homosexual, it represents too many---they are usually not this transparent.

Before you slip back into the comfort of denial, please read this Huff Post article for yourself.

You will note that its author, S. Bear Bergman, lays it all out.

He says he's a young queer activist who used to bristle when he was accused of trying to indoctrinate or recruit children.

He says at one time when he was giving talks at high schools about LGBTQ acceptance and tolerance, he received letters from people accusing him of trying to indoctrinate and recruit kids. He says he always denied doing so---he was merely educating, informing.

Bergman says, "That was a lie."

And he is now here to tell you that "all 25 years of my career as an LGBTQ activist ...I have been on a consistent campaign to change people's mind. That is absolutely my goal...I want to make your children like people like me, even if that goes against the way you have interpreted the teachings of your religion. I want to be present in their emotional landscapes."

He says, "At the moment I am helping put the finishing touches on a series of children's books that feature lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer kids or families."

He says he would be "delighted," "overjoyed" to cause those children to disagree with their families on the subject of LGBTQ people.

"If that makes me an indoctrinator, I accept it," he says. "Let me be honest---I am not even a little bit sorry."

I believe him.

He has kept his promise to publish kids books. They include "Gender Outlaws-The Next Generation", "The Adventures of Tulip", "Butch is a Noun", "The Nearest Exit May Be behind You" and more.

They are available at Amazon. They are also, or soon will be, available in your child's classroom.

I hope you believe him as well. Please consider an alternative to public, government-run school for your child.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Faithful. Be Responsible. Be Prayerful.
