Statewide groups coordinate efforts to repeal SB 48, which mandates instruction about gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender “heroes” to California public schoolchildren as young as five years old. The coalition has certified over 300,000 petitions with 200,000 still to be reviewed.
According to the website StopSB48.com, the new law does not allow children to opt out of the mandatory instruction about homosexuals. In addition, it would “force some public school educators to go against their own deeply held religious and moral beliefs . . .”
The coalition is “optimistic” about receiving the required number of signatures to get the repeal on the 2012 California ballot, but warns, “if we fail, the law goes into effect on January 1, 2012.
Spread the word. If you live in California, here's what StopSB48.com urges:
•Pray that we collect enough petitions for the repeal of SB 48 to make it on the 2012 ballot
•Sign the petition, following instructions carefully so that it is counted as valid
•Encourage your friends and family to visit StopSB48.com and sign the petition
Collect petitions and turn them into Calvary Chapel Chino Hills ASAP (10-10-11 deadline)
