Coalition Encourages Parents to Remove Children from California Public Schools
By Jim Day

    As readers of the MetroVoice may recall, we have been reporting on the fact that California Governor Schwarzenegger has signed legislation (SB 777) which mandates that public school children be indoctrinated to ‘accept as normal’ the homosexual lifestyle and other forms of sexual deviancy.
    As a result of failure to pass a referendum to repeal this legislation in early January, a broad coalition of Christian grassroots organizations gathered together by Exodus Mandate and California Exodus have endorsed Randy Thomasson’s Campaign for Children and Families calling for California families and churches to rescue their children from California’s public schools.
    The growing coalition includes Phyllis Schlafly the founder of Eagle Forum; Denise Kanter with Considering Homeschooling Ministry; Dr. Robert Simonds with Citizens for Excellence in Education; Star Parker with the Coalition on Urban Renewal & Education; Patch Blakey with the Association of Classical and Christian Schools; Dave and Kim d’Escoto with Dexios; Dan Smithwick with the Nehemiah Institute; Alan Schaeffer with the Alliance for Separation of School and State; Linda Harvey with Mission America; Dr. Ron Gleason with California Exodus; and Chaplin Ray Moore, Jr., President and Chairman of Exodus Mandate, which has chapters in states across the country. These organizations (which are only the tip of the iceberg) intend to provide information in one form or another to California parents and pastors concerning the new school legislation, how it promotes and mainstream’s sexual deviancy among children, and what alternatives to California’s public schools are available.

Rep. Cunningham Warns Parents of Teacher Sexual Abuse Epidemic
By Jim Day

    The nation has continued to be horrified by stories of sexual abuse within the Catholic priesthood, but another epidemic even more prolific has caught the attention of one Missouri legislator who wants to take steps to protect Missouri children. Missouri State Representative Jane Cunningham, a Republican who represents West St. Louis County (District 86) is working on legislation that would provide parents and school districts with the tools necessary to deal with the overwhelming issue of teacher sexual misconduct – a problem found by an Associated Press (AP) report to be six times as common as the more highly publicized priesthood cases.
    The Associated Press report serves as the impetus for Rep. Cunningham’s legislation, House Bill 1314 (HB 1314). In that report the AP uncovered 2,570 cases nationwide in which educators lost their licenses because of sexual misconduct. In Missouri, the report’s findings were even more disturbing as the state was found to be the 11th worst in the nation for educator sexual misconduct. From 2001-2005 the AP reported 87 teachers lost their licenses due to sexual misconduct.
    “As alarming as these numbers are, they are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the problem we’re facing here in Missouri,” said Rep. Cunningham. “What the AP uncovered deals with the ‘reported’ cases and they represent only a fraction of the problem. We’ve learned that only one out of every ten victimized children even comes forward to report sexual misconduct, and when they do they sometimes face off against school officials who would prefer to hide the problem.”
