LGBT History Bill Is Antifamily, Says Group Seeking Referendum

The ink has barely dried on the FAIR Education Act, and already antigay groups have begun to collect signatures for a ballot referendum to overturn the nation's first law requiring public schools to include LGBT history in the curriculum.

Stop SB48, which is organized by the Capitol Resource Institute, a self-described “watchdog for family values,” asserts that the bill — which Governor Jerry Brown recently signed into law — undermines the traditional family and the community.

They argue that it “creates conflict between schools and families over the values children learn” and “forces schools to use a social science curriculum that promotes the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender lifestyles that undermine traditional family relationships.”
