It is so turned around these days.

George Washington......The First Heterosexual President

If Liberals (not necessary Democrats) take over, it could (will) be the end of this nation. Well, BJ, that's a pretty bold statement....wouldn't you need some example to back up that statement? Yes and I have one. In California Democrats control both houses and have a pretty easy time at forming majorities. Let's look at just a little bit of legislation that has just passed the state senate.

Basically the bill says that textbooks must now include contributions to history that have been made by homosexuals and transgendered. So what's the big deal you may ask. I have know doubt that there are examples out there, but let me ask this question. Can you name any transgendered person that has made significant contributions to US History that would warrant inclusion in textbooks? And if so; Is this something of note and something that needs to be taught to kids? To half of this country this may be good news and something worth being taught. The thing that is baffling to me is that this is about to become law. Let me repeat... This is about to become law!! Do you see the implications? This law would enforce their inclusion even if their contributions are not as significant as the major historical figures. This begs another question. Will the textbooks need to be re-written to include the following:

George Washington, a heterosexual male, was the first president.

Benjamin Franklin, a heterosexual male, invented bifocals.

Or the very front page would contain the following:

Unless otherwise noted, any mention of a historical figure assumes that they are straight.

This is so turned around. It is so turned around that even the LA Times sees this for what it is.

"It's a twisting of what history textbooks are supposed to do: tell about the most important contributions, and misdeeds, of people in history, regardless of their beliefs and orientations."

What if the person is a particularly bad person and is gay? Will that be included? What about someone who got really drunk and on one instance they did something they came to regret later? Would that one instance qualify them for the great contributions of bisexuals? What I'm getting at is this; Liberals will go to great lengths for what are noble causes, but not really think through the consequences. They want textbooks to be therapeutic more than historical. History is not written to make me or you or certain social groups feel good. It is written to tell history. I have no problem if gays want to write a book of significant homo-sexual historical figures to bolster their self image. And the same goes for any other group in America. But lets be real folks. It is things like this that not only sanitize history but slowly over time re-write history.

Good grief! Leave it to those people in California to come up with something crazy. I was always told that one's sexual orientation did not matter, whether you invented the light bulb or were a ruthless dictator. Appearently the California legislature has made a 180 and thinks otherwise.

Homosexuals are a higher form of life. Didn't you know? ;-)

Well, I think that it goes deeper than just homosexuals. I mean why not mention notable historical leaders who were Christian? Or left handed? The list can go on. I think my lifes work will now be devoted to pointing out how liberalism is not a mental disorder, like one particular talk show host describes, but merely flawed thinking. For the 2 or 3 readers who actualy read Oneproblem please note; I do not lump liberals and Democrats into the same boat. Just as you should not always lump conservatives and Christians into the same boat.

Great post, and so true.

The problem in California is that the fringe left has somehow gained power and as such are out of hand. I have heard the speeches made by the people involved, and they are totally out of tough. Their agenda is their sexual preference and as this is totally irrelevant to ones capabilities, they for some reason see it as proof of their contributions to society. Talk about making the divide even larger, these people are doing more harm then good. It must be a gene problem after all...

totally out of tough should have been totally out of touch.
