LA Assembly approves bill to require textbooks and history lessons to include contributions of gays

 

Textbooks and history classes in California schools would be required to include the contributions of gays, lesbians and transgender Americans under a proposal given final legislative approval in the Assembly on Tuesday and sent to Gov. Jerry Brown,


The LA Times reports that the measure sparked a spirited debate, including personal pleas from two openly gay lawmakers — Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) and Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco). They said the bill would reduce the bullying of gay students and correct an oversight by history books.

"I don’t want to be invisible in a textbook," Ammiano told his colleagues.

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of San Bernardino was one of several Republicans who spoke against the measure, which he argued was promoting a "homosexual agenda" that many of his constituents do not support.
"As a Christian, I am deeply offended," Donnelly said.
The bill, SB 48, which had already been approved by the state Senate, passed the Assembly on a 49-25 vote. Brown has 12 days to sign or veto the measure, on which he has taken no public position.

What sparks me as odd,  is if they really wanted to remove gays from the history books,  those history books would be a whole lot thinner.  Just thin k of all the famous gays in history -  millions.
