Unsurprising: Wingnuts Hate California’s Harvey Milk Day

Under the headline “California Legislature Approves Gay Day in Public Schools” the Campaign for Children and Families is objecting to Harvey Milk Day, which the California legislature has approved as a state holiday, pending Gov. Schwarzenegger’s approval.

“If signed into law, AB 2567 will mean an official day commemorating homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality in California government schools,” said CCF President Randy Thomasson. “This will harm children as young as kindergarten. Every May 22, AB 2567 will positively portray to children homosexual experimentation, homosexual ‘marriages,’ sex-change operations, and anything else that’s ‘in the closet.’ Governor Schwarzenegger should say no to this very inappropriate bill, which has nothing to do with academic excellence.”

“This bad bill will teach impressionable schoolchildren the anti-religious, homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda of Harvey Milk,” said Thomasson. “The Democrats are so cocky, they have no qualms about pushing sexual indoctrination upon children in an election year. For the love of God, parents and their children, we implore Governor Schwarzenegger to veto AB 2567.”

The press release goes on to list several famous quotes by Milk, including: “More people have been slaughtered in the name of religion than for any other single reason. That, my friends, that is true perversion.” Christianist site WorldNetDaily blares the story with “Legislators tell school kids to celebrate homosexuality.”

Freepers react:
– “Looks like an extra day off for my children added to the school calendar. I hope everybody has fire insurance.”
– “If God does not judge America, He is going to have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
– “How do you commemorate queers? With a baseball bat?”
– “All subhumans hate us.”
