A California pro-family organization has concluded the only way to overturn the radical pro-homosexual indoctrination agenda imposed on public schools when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed SB 777 which could end up banning "Mom and Dad" references in schools is through a state constitutional amendment.
"A detailed, well-crafted constitutional amendment would wipe out SB 777 and prevent it from ever coming back again, no matter what the politicians or judges desired," said an analysis by Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families.
He also warned it would be best if parents would simply withdraw their children from public schools. "When you can no longer protect your children, you must remove them from a threatening environment," he said. "Because the equivalent of mental molestation is coming to California public schools, CCF is recommending that California parents who love their children flee to home schools or church-operated private schools."
The legislative plan sponsored by state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, a Democrat who has brought forward similar proposals for several years, also could be overridden with a referendum, as has been proposed by Capitol Resource Institute, he noted, but anything won there would be a temporary victory.
"While the voters could reject and stop SB 777, a successful ballot referendum is a one-time deal. It only stops SB 777, but doesn't stop one or more school sexual indoctrination bills from coming back under a different bill number. Despite good intentions, a referendum 'the power of the electors to approve or reject statutes' simply does not prohibit the California Legislature from passing the same school sexual indoctrination bill next year, the year after, or whenever," he said.

Is ALL of California insane?
Democracy is a 24 hour a day job. It needs to be augmented the by wrath of the majority when the few elite start with mischief. The politicians are growing ever more fearless of the will of the people. Its amazing what the collectivist left has been able to accomplish against the masses of disorganized individuals in spite of all the constitutional protections on a piece of paper.
I hope that Gov. Schwarzenegger is not still pretending to be a Republican. Or did he just pretend to be one to get elected? California is an embarrassment to me.
If enough people take their kids out of public school, that would have the effect of a referendum, only much faster.

“Is ALL of California insane?”
Coming soon to a state near you.
Nope. I pulled my son out of public school two years ago. What I’ve seen since, I have no regrets. I do think that what we’re seeing here are death throes. I feel sorry for parents who can’t take their kids out of public school, for one reason or another. My son is free to use “mom and dad” whenever he wants to, regardless what the state of CA says.
Well fine, but when you’re talking about making those kinds of changes to the state Constitution, you’re rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
Regardless of the fact that it only revokes one bill, it is a necessary step for the people of California to stand up for our culture.
It’ll also bring the necessary notariety that the drive-by media denied by ignoring 777
Just who was the asinine Governator that signed this POS legislation.
His name deserves the finest toilet stall with a bumpened foot.
Not if Califoreignia will just go ahead and fall into the ocean.
One of the many reasons why we are homeschooling.
Well, much of California is insane. I don’t think I am. Well, maybe.
Just the Bay Area and LA areas...
We came to that conclusion 20 years ago. Our daughter was home schooled until she went to college.
Sheila Kuehl ought to just stick to the Dobie Gillis reunions.
Bump to that. (Same here.)
Have you chronicled your experience? Some of us out here are losing sleep over how we’re going to make the college part happen.
And Sacramento, and Davis, and Stockton, and Santa Barbara....
