Governor Schwarzenegger Must Veto 'Harvey Milk Gay Day'

Despite going into 'Hall of Fame,' Harvey Milk is a terrible role model for kids

SACRAMENTO, Aug. 25 /Christian Newswire/ -- SaveCalifornia.com, a leading West Coast pro-family organization, is sad and disappointed that Harvey Milk will be inducted into the California Hall of Fame.

"Harvey Milk was a notorious sexual predator, advocated multiple sexual relationships at the same time, was a public liar, and is in no way a good role model for children," said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com.

"It's sad and disappointing that the Governor and First Lady are honoring this man who did many dishonorable deeds," Thomasson said. "This, when the overwhelming majority of parents oppose the establishment of 'Harvey Milk Gay Day' in public schools for children as young as kindergarten. This guy is a terrible role model for kids!"

SaveCalifornia.com has created a web page empowering concerned Californians to call, fax and send emails to Governor Schwarzenegger and state legislators, urging them to reject SB 572, "Harvey Milk Gay Day."

"'Harvey Milk Gay Day' would teach schoolkids all about the life and very controversial values of Harvey Milk," said Thomasson. "Based on the historical record of Milk's sordid life, this could include teaching elementary and secondary schoolchildren that adult-child homosexual 'sex' is OK, having multiple sexual relationships at the same time is OK, and telling a very public lie is good if it 'gets you ahead.' This instruction, whether taught directly or indirectly, is not what parents want or children need."

A SEXUAL PREDATOR OF TEENS

Randy Shilts, a homosexual San Francisco Chronicle reporter, wrote a favorable and sordid biography of Milk in "The Mayor of Castro Street." The 1982 book detailed Milk's sexual relationships with a 16-year-old, a 19-year-old and other young men:

"...sixteen-year-old McKinley was looking for some kind of father figure...At 33, Milk was launching a new life, though he could hardly have imagined the unlikely direction toward which his new lover would pull him." (pages 30-31)
