"California public schools could not demean gay, bisexual or transgender orientations under fiercely controversial legislation approved Monday by the Assembly... SB 1437 would ban teachers, textbooks, instructional materials or school activities from reflecting ''adversely'' upon people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender....
Under Kuehl's bill, public school teachers could not inform their students, for example, that homosexuality is immoral or wrong. Campaign for Children and Families, a nonprofit advocacy group, claims that SB 1437 would ban textbooks that define marriage as between a man and a woman; or sex education that displays traditional examples of male and female sexual development; or homecoming games that feature only a male king and a female queen as campus representatives.
Given the First Amendment, the implicit ban on Christian teachings could possibly cause the bill to be declared unconstitional eventually.
The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press"
