|David Paterson who signed the law on Erev Rosh Hashana that forced gay teaching into schools|
As we previously reported girls in school in Upstate NY were required to ask one another for a lesbian kiss based on the so called "Dignity For All Students Act".
The most objectionable part of the law, is the following section which forces all schools to teach pro gay propaganda. (possibly even private and religious schools) This law was the basis for telling middle schools girls to kiss each other. (The capital letters are the new laws which the Dignity For All Students Act added to the previous law, that which is underlined is for emphasis)
S 801-a. Instruction in civility, citizenship and character education. The regents shall ensure that the course of instruction in grades kindergarten through twelve includes a component on civility, citizen ship and character education. Such component shall instruct students on the principles of honesty, tolerance, personal responsibility, respect for others, observance of laws and rules, courtesy, dignity and other traits which will enhance the quality of their experiences in, and contributions to, the community. The regents shall determine how to incorporate such component in existing curricula and the commissioner shall promulgate any regulations needed to carry out such determination of the regents. FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION, "TOLERANCE," "RESPECT FOR OTHERS" AND "DIGNITY" SHALL INCLUDE AWARENESS AND SENSITIVITY TO DISCRIMINATION OR HARASSMENT AND CIVILITY IN THE RELATIONS OF PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT RACES, WEIGHTS, NATIONAL ORIGINS, ETHNIC GROUPS, RELIGIONS, RELIGIOUS PRACTICES, MENTAL OR PHYSICAL ABILITIES, SEXUAL ORIENTATIONS, GENDERS, AND SEXES.
This bill including this section was first proposed in 2001 with former Assemblyman Steve Sanders sponsoring it in the Assembly and the former gay state senator Thomas Duane sponsoring it in the assembly. When Steve Sanders retired, gay assemblyman Daniel O'Donnell (the lesbian actress Rosie O'Donnell brother) sponsored the bill in his place.
The bill was voted and passed 9 times in the assembly (never having more than 9 people voting against it) before it passed the senate. On April 29th 2010, the NY City Council sponsored a resolution calling upon the New York State Legislature to pass the "Dignity For All Students Act".
2 people (Daniel Squadron, and Letitia James) currently running for Public Advocate of New York City supported this evil bill.

If any of these legislators made a mistake, and didn't understand what they were voting for, we now call on them to try and correct their mistake and sponsor a bill to repeal that section!
Call your legislator to demand they repeal section 801-A of the education law!
