New Jersey has become the second state in the nation after California to adopt a law that requires schools to teach about LGBT history in a move hailed by civil rights groups as a step toward inclusion and fairness, but actually goes against the Torah and brings immorality into the state’s public school classrooms.
NorthJersey.com reports that Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat who promised during his campaign to promote equality for those living immoral lifestyles, signed the bill.
Under the measure, public schools must include lessons about the political, economic and “social contributions” of individuals who live immoral lifestyles, starting in the 2020-21 school year. The bill also requires teaching about contributions of people who are disabled.
The law does not apply to private schools, NorthJersey.com reports.
At least not yet.
The New Jersey law was modeled after one that took effect in California in 2012.
And on Feb. 1, NorthJersey.com reports, a law went into effect that lets transgender residents more easily change the gender on their birth certificates while also adding a third, gender-neutral option.
