California Sued over Redefining of Gender

The state of California, always familiar to family attacks, is now trying to redefine gender:

Signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger last month, Senate Bill 777 adds “gender” and “sexual orientation” to the state’s education code beginning Jan. 1 and notes the classifications of protected groups that can’t be discriminated against in schools.

The bill says “no teacher shall give instruction nor shall a school district sponsor any activity that promotes a discriminatory bias” against students.

The state is rightly being sued for their injudicious attack on the family unit:

The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) and Advocates for Faith and Freedom (AFF) sued California in federal court Tuesday over SB 777, a law that changes the definition of gender and essentially forces public schools to present a one-sided message about homosexuality, bisexuality and transgender issues.

Ron Prentice, chief executive officer of CFC, said: “The goal of SB 777 is not to create a gender-neutral environment, but to disregard the traditional family and its beliefs, and respect for a mom and dad raising the kids.”

SB 777, which is slated to take effect Jan. 1, 2008, will redefine a student’s sex as his or her “gender identity,” relying upon that student’s feelings about whether the student is male or female rather than his or her biological sex.

Geoff Kors, the executive director of Equality California, believes the lawsuit is misguided stating, “The new law was just a “language cleanup bill” that clarified conflicting state laws regarding students’ discrimination and harassment. The definition of gender has been in the education code since 2000.”

But in earlier this year, in September, the state Senate of California voted 22-15 to pass a bill that substitutes the term “two persons” for “man and wife” in all state references to marriage.

Additionally is the forever-present tactic of liberals that twists this moral issue into a political one. In other words, make a black & white issue gray. From Geoff Kors:

“In California, we are really at a tipping point. People have thought about this intellectually but we want them to think about it emotionally. We want to talk to people about love and commitment.”

Right. Because no matter what the moral side is, anyone can “love” anyone. Mr. Kors, we can see right through your gray and, despite your efforts, the issue will ALWAYS be black & white.
