All California charter schools are pro-transsexuality

Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 10:00 pm | Randy Thomasson

Have you heard about a charter school in the relatively conservative community of Rocklin, California that’s pushing transsexuality as normal to kindergartners?

While moral parents, especially the parents of young children enrolled in this particular public school, are shocked and angry, the fact is, since SB 777 went into effect in 2008, every charter school in California has been legally required to support — thus promote — homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality in their enrollment, hiring, and school policies.

Why, you ask? Because charter schools are indeed “public” (government-controlled) schools, they must abide by State laws, and most of the homosexuality-bisexuality-transsexual agenda laws in the California Education Code apply to them since every California charter school is “an educational institution that receives, or benefits from, state financial assistance.” Even the liberal, pro-transsexuality principal of the Rocklin Academy knows this.

California Education Code excerpts that apply to all California public schools, including charter schools:

210.7. “Gender” means sex, and includes a person’s gender identity and gender related appearance and behavior whether or not stereotypically associated with the person’s assigned sex at birth.

212.3. “Religion” includes all aspects of religious belief, observance, and practice and includes agnosticism and atheism.

212.6. “Sexual orientation” means heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality.

220. No person shall be subjected to discrimination on the basis of disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic that is contained in the definition of hate crimes set forth in Section 422.55 of the Penal Code in any program or activity conducted by an educational institution that receives, or benefits from, state financial assistance or enrolls pupils who receive state student financial aid.

[Section 220 was updated, effective 2012, with transsexuality, cross-dressing, and “sex changes,” specifically written into the law as “gender identity” and “gender expression”: No person shall be subjected to discrimination on the basis of disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic that is contained in the definition of hate crimes set forth in Section 422.55 of the Penal Code in any program or activity conducted by an educational institution that receives, or benefits from, state financial assistance or enrolls pupils who receive state student financial aid.

51500. No teacher shall give instruction nor shall a school district sponsor any activity that promotes a discriminatory bias because of a characteristic listed in Section 220.

[Also in 2012, California Penal Code 422.56, to which Education Code Section 220 is tied, was updated to include “gender identity and gender expression”:
(c) “Gender” means sex, and includes a person’s gender identity and gender expression. “Gender expression” means a person’s gender-related appearance and behavior whether or not stereotypically associated with the person’s assigned sex at birth.
(h) “Sexual orientation” means heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality.

So when a charter school teacher opened two pro-transsexuality books and read them to kindergartners, confusing and alarming them, it wasn’t only legal, but some would say it’s legally required. Because to not speak positively about all these sexual behaviors can be judged as “promoting a discriminatory bias.”

For whenever liberals — including liberals who are teachers and principals in irreligious, secular charter schools — see the words “discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying” in the law (Education Code, Section 234.1), they regard anyone who opposes transsexuality, cross-dressing, and “sex changes” as a bigot, a harasser, and a bully, and they say the law’s against you, against your values, and against your so-called free speech.

Thus, the homosexual-transsexual activists, Democrat politicians, and government schools combine to snuff out your parental rights, your constitutional rights, and your God-given right of conscience. Does this concern you?

So realize that even though California charter schools look, operate, and perform differently from the regular government schools, they are more alike than not — they both operate under the same state laws promoting unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical, tyrannical homosexuality and transsexuality to children as young as kindergarten. They aren’t and cannot be made “parent friendly.”

The obvious solution to this big problem and a raft of other anti-child laws in the government schools is to permanently remove your boys and girls from these dysfunctional, nonacademic, godless government indoctrination centers and give them a real education — academically, morally, socially, and hopefully, spiritually — in home schools or Biblical church schools.

If you’re still on the fence about whether transsexuality is good or bad to teach to children, realize that the politically-correct Centers for Disease Control has quietly reported that transsexuality has the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the United States. Please also see SaveCalifornia.com’s Science of the Sexes fact sheet and our Not Born This Way information.

CDC statistics show how men who delude themselves to think they’re women have an HIV transmission rate TRIPLE that of homosexual men (2.7% vs. .09%):
“Transgender people, particularly transgender women, are vulnerable to HIV infection. Available evidence suggests that, in relation to their population size, transgender women are among the most heavily affected populations in the United States … Meta-analyses and literature reviews of available studies provide evidence of the effects HIV has taken on the transgender community. In a recent analysis of CDC-funded HIV testing conducted nationwide, transgender women had the highest rates of HIV diagnoses (2.7%), followed by men (0.9%), transgender men (0.5%), and women (0.2%).” HIV and Transgender Communities, CDC Issue Brief, September 2016

At least 63% and as much as 91% of HIV/AIDS infections transmitted by “male-to-male sexual contact”:
“Approximately 1.1 million persons in the United States are living with HIV infection [1]. In 2010, the estimated number of new HIV infections was 47,500: of those, 63% were attributed to male-to-male sexual contact, 25% to heterosexual contact, 8% to injection drug use, and 3% to male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use [2]” [Note: According to this CDC report, “All the participants had at least 1 male sex partner,” including those males who “self-identified as heterosexual”] CDC, HIV Surveillance Special Report: Men Who Have Sex with Men, 20 U.S. Cities, 2011

The 2nd best gift you can give your children

Sunday, December 4, 2016, 7:15 pm | Randy Thomasson

I’m writing this with the assumption that you intensely love your children and grandchildren.

This month of Christmas can be a time when you think about the best, lasting gifts for life that you can give your children. Because a good gift that powerfully affects a child internally is always better than satisfying temporary wants or external needs.

I’ve already written how I believe the very best gift a parent or grandparent can give a child is to introduce them to their tremendous need to repent before, trust in, and worship their risen Savior, Jesus Christ, with all of their heart, mind, soul, and strength.

But now I want to share with you what I believe is the 2nd best gift that you can give to the children you love. And it totally supports and applies the best gift.

First, a stark truth about a big educational problem:

Today’s public schools are no longer good for children academically, socially, physically, or spiritually.

Here are some disturbing facts that every parent should realize:

1. If your children are in California government schools, they will be sexually indoctrinated.

It’s because of 10 statewide laws promoting sexual anarchy (homosexuality, bisexuality, transsexuality, and heterosexual sex among minors) to children as young as kindergarten, with no parental opt-in or opt-out. Harmful, sexual indoctrination? These laws guarantee it.

2. Your children are unlikely to learn to read or compute adequately in the public schools.

According to the 2015 National Assessment of Educational Progress (“The Nation’s Report Card”), only one-third of California public school kids are proficient in reading or math and two-thirds aren’t.

4th grade reading, proficient or above: 34%
4th grade math, proficient or above: 34%
8th grade reading, proficient or above: 31%
8th grade math, proficient or above: 33%

Reading and mathematics proficiency are the #1 thing that schools should be teaching, right? Kids should be taught to read well, write well, and compute well, correct? Obviously, academic excellence and loving children is no longer the goal of the union-controlled, government-run school system.

3. Your children will be greatly subjected to negative peer pressure in the public schools.

Children in public schools are more likely to have earlier experiences and develop negative habits in these areas: lying, cussing, cheating, excessive dieting, wearing revealing clothes, pornography, sexual activity, smoking, drugs, alcohol, and even violence. The Bible affirms that “bad company corrupts good character” (1 Corinthians 15:33). Read more about peer pressure

Hopefully what I’ve written has interested, disturbed, and motivated you to take action. Because you have only one chance with your children — they grow up fast!

Please accept my good challenge to think about what I’m saying. Show decisive, sacrificial love to your children. Determine to rescue them from today’s dysfunctional, negative, non-academic, godless government schools.

You can do what’s right in God’s sight. You have the ability to train up these precious young ones and protect them from bad influences. Choose today that you will rescue them with the gift of homeschooling or a solid church school!

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
Deuteronomy 6:4-9

What’s the #1 gift you can give your child?

Saturday, December 3, 2016, 6:43 pm | Randy Thomasson


At Christmastime, worship of the Savior and Judge of the world, Jesus Christ, has largely been replaced in our secular culture by presents, decorations, music, food, and frivolities.

But in God’s sight, it was vital that Jesus Christ came down from heaven to be born as a baby. It was so He could die on a Roman cross as an innocent and pure Lamb, substituting for and identifying with anyone who truly repents and identifies with Him.

Jesus was born, and he lived, taught, died, rose, and ascended so that we could have a chance at real Life, real Love, and real Purpose today, and so that we don’t have to go to hell when we die.

But only humble persons who recognize Jesus is indeed God in the flesh, realize they are dirty and doomed in their sin, repent of their known sins, and sincerely receive Jesus Christ in prayer as their Savior and their Master to obey can be truly saved.

Salvation is conditional based on our response. Jesus Christ Himself said so:

“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” (John 3:36)

“Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.” (John 8:24)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” (John 5:24)

This solemn truth is why the best gift you can give your child — at Christmastime or anytime — is to introduce them to the reality of Jesus, their own sin, the coming judgment, and how to repent before, trust in, and obey the Risen Christ.

How to present the Good News of Jesus Christ to your children
“Evangelizing Children” from Grace To You

The heart of evangelism is the gospel, “for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Rom. 1:16). If a child is to repent and believe in Christ, then, it will be through the proclamation of the message of the cross (1 Cor. 1:18–25; 2 Tim. 3:15; James 1:18; 1 Peter 1:23–25). Children will not be saved apart from the gospel.

For this reason, parents need to teach their children the law of God, teach them the gospel of divine grace, show them their need for a Savior, and point them to Jesus Christ as the only One who can save them. It is best to start from the beginning—God, creation, the fall, sin, salvation, and Christ in His life, death, and resurrection.

The wise parent will be faithful,
patient, and persistent, being careful
to look at every moment of the child’s
life as a teaching opportunity.

As they teach their children, parents must resist the temptation to downplay or soften the demands of the gospel and must proclaim the message in its fullness. The need to surrender to the lordship of Christ, for example, is not too difficult for children to understand. Any child who is old enough to understand the basic gospel is also able by God’s grace to trust Him completely and respond with the purest, most sincere kind of repentance.

The key is to be clear and thorough. Parents more than anyone have ample time and opportunity to explain and illustrate gospel truths, to correct misunderstandings, and to clarify and review the most difficult aspects of the message. The wise parent will be faithful, patient, and persistent, being careful to look at every moment of the child’s life as a teaching opportunity (Deut. 6:6–7).

One such teaching opportunity is found in the parents’ responsibility to discipline and correct their children when they are disobedient (Eph. 6:4). Rather than seeking simply to modify behavior, the wise parent will look at discipline as an opportunity to help his children become aware of their failure and inability to obey, and subsequently, their need for forgiveness in Christ. In this way, discipline and correction are used to bring children to a sober assessment of themselves as sinners and to lead to the cross of Christ where sinners can be forgiven.

As parents explain the gospel and exhort their children to respond to the gospel, it is best to avoid an emphasis on external actions, such as praying “the sinner’s prayer.” There is an urgency inherent in the gospel message itself—and it is right for parents to impress that urgency on the child’s heart—but the focus should be kept on the internal response Scripture calls for from sinners: repentance from sin and faith in Christ. As parents diligently teach the gospel and take opportunities each day to instruct their children in the truth of God’s Word, they can begin to look for signs that their children have indeed repented and believed.
