California teachers vs. traditional marriage

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 17, 2008 11:21 AM

Last week, I noted the public school propaganda war on traditional marriage — in the form of a first-grader field trip to a wedding of two lesbian teachers opposed to Proposition 8. That’s the ballot measure to protect marriage.

CTA, the far Left teachers’ union in California, has now donated $1 million to defeat the proposition. I noted their first $250,000 installment for the same-sex marriage lobby in August.

It’s all for the children, of course:

California’s largest teacher’s union has given another $1 million to defeat a Nov. 4 ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage in the state.

The contribution recorded Tuesday makes the California Teachers Association the largest institutional donor to the No on 8 campaign. CTA also gave $250,000 in August to Equality for All, a coalition of gay advocacy and civil rights groups opposing Proposition 8.

Union spokeswoman Sandra Jackson says CTA’s 800-member policy body voted overwhelmingly to oppose the gay marriage ban. Jackson says the issue concerns educators because “teachers teach the importance of equal rights for all.”

She says CTA leaders made the second contribution this week because the No campaign seems to be struggling.

Reader Beckie is a teacher in Cali and she’s sick to her stomach:

I just wanted to thank you for your website. I went home sick to my stomach today when I realized that CTA had donated 1 million dollars to ‘No on Prop. 8.’ CTA clearly does not see in the long run that they are perhaps cutting their own throats as parents flock to private schools or begin home schooling as parents realize that they do not want radical ideas dictated to their children.

I am a conservative elementary school teacher living in the Bay Area. (Lion’s Den) I bravely had a Bush bumper sticker on my car last election but this election, I felt that anything conservative message on my vehicle might mean my car being vandalized. (by the other teachers) I don’t think I am the only conservative CTA member and I would love to find a forum that our voice can be heard without threat of losing our standing in our school districts.

Again, I appreciate your viewpoint and I’m bookmarking your website right now.
