LGBT community 'rewriting history' for propaganda

With "gay" activists now claiming a popular American song is actually a "lesbian anthem," a California legal group is urging parents to respond.

Homosexual activists are telling students that "America the Beautiful," penned by Katharine Lee Bates, is a lesbian anthem. They claim Bates, who never married and never claimed to be a lesbian, is a key LGBT figure because she lived with a female colleague for many years. Bates has also been added to a list of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people as part of the LGBT community's observation of October as "LGBT History Month."

Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, says it is unfounded to assume that Bates was lesbian.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)"Miss Bates had a very good friend who she lived with," he states. "You know, back then, there wasn't a social stigma or negative presumption when two women lived together, or, for that matter, when two men lived together. But that's the assumption that they're making for their propaganda purposes."

It is now California law for public schools to teach positively on the roles and contributions of LGBT individuals, and Dacus urges parents to find out if their students' schools will promote LGBT History Month.

"This curriculum that they're bringing into schools is trying to effectively rewrite history in the minds of so many students and youth who have no idea of the past accuracy of history, and unfortunately, it's setting up role models and rewriting history in the minds of these students," he laments. "And make no mistake -- what has been officiated and mandated in California is coming to states all across the country, if parents and others don't step up to the plate and bring it to a halt."

Last year, LGBT History Month honored Lady Gaga and created controversy when officials fired a teacher who criticized the observation of the month on her Facebook page.
