Why Are California Public Schools Honoring a Predator of Teens?
'Harvey Milk Gay Day' is driving more parents out of government schools

Sacramento, California -- With California K-12 government schools today "celebrating" a documented sexual predator of teens and sexual anarchist, SaveCalifornia.com, which promotes moral virtues for the common good, has issued the following statement by its president, Randy Thomasson:

"A predator of teen boys, a sexual anarchist, and a public liar who showed callous disregard for people's lives and health should not be honored, or forced upon children as a positive role model. 'Harvey Milk Day' in California public schools is driving more parents out of the government system because they cannot and will not tolerate their children being taught to embrace and support unnatural and unhealthy sexual practices. Today, children at nearly 1,000 K-12 California schools are being required to 'celebrate' this bad man.

"'Harvey Milk Day' is one of eight state laws teaching children to support homosexuality, bisexuality, cross-dressing, and heterosexual fornication, all without parental notification or consent. Because California public schools have become sexual indoctrination centers, morally-sensitive parents are saying 'enough is enough,' and are choosing to take charge and rescue their boys and girls by homeschooling them or enrolling them in church school."

SaveCalifornia.com operates a special website, RescueYourChild.com, which details the problems of today's government-run schools and provides solutions for parents.

SaveCalifornia.com has been educating fathers and mothers through a video documentary of Harvey Milk and his intolerant and harmful agenda. See the 3-minute video (for computer viewing only). Parents are also learning at SaveCalifornia.com's "Not Born This Way" page, which lovingly documents how homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality are unnatural and unhealthy, and offers helpful resources for those struggling with gender confusion.


Randy Shilts, a homosexual San Francisco Chronicle reporter, wrote a favorable and sordid biography of Milk in "The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk."

According to this reputable biography, Milk repeatedly engaged in adult-child sex, advocated for multiple homosexual relationships at the same time, and told a very public lie because he thought it would get him ahead. Since SB 572 (2009) requires "exercises remembering the life of Harvey Milk," children can be taught to support and emulate these bad values.


Shilts' 1982 book detailed Milk's sexual relationships with a 16-year-old, a 19-year-old and other young men:

"...sixteen-year-old McKinley was looking for some kind of father figure...At 33, Milk was launching a new life, though he could hardly have imagined the unlikely direction toward which his new lover would pull him." (pages 30-31)

"...the phone rang. As soon as Harvey heard the voice, he rolled his eyes impatiently at Jim. 'It's Jack McKinley,' he said. He paused and listened further. 'He says he's going to kill himself.'...'Tell him not to make a mess,' Harvey deadpanned. Jack hung up." (page 126)

"It would be to boyish-looking men in their late teens and early 20's that Milk would be attracted for the rest of his life." (page 24)

"Harvey always had a penchant for young waifs with substance abuse problems." (page 180)

"Harvey confided one night that at twenty-four, Doug was the oldest man Harvey had ever started an affair with." (page 237)


Explaining Milk's many flings and affairs with teenagers and young men, Shilts writes how Milk told one "lover" why it was OK for him to also have multiple relationships simultaneously:

"As homosexuals, we can't depend on the heterosexual model...We grow up with the heterosexual model, but we don't have to follow it. We should be developing our own life-style. There's no reason why you can't love more than one person at a time. You don't have to love them all the same. You love some less, love some more -- and always be honest with everybody about where you're at. They in turn can do the same thing and it can open up a bigger sphere." (pages 237-238)


"He had not suffered this disgrace, he told a later campaign manager, but he knew the story would make good copy. If anyone said something to Harvey about his fondness for such stunts, he would gesture wildly as launched into a lecture. 'Symbols, symbols, symbols,' he insisted. Sure, he had not been kicked out of the military...The point of the story was to let people know that service people routinely do get kicked out. Besides, he once confided, 'Maybe people will read it, feel sorry for me, and then vote for me.'" (p. 78-79)
