No Harvey Milk Day
Governor vetoes bill naming homosexual activist’s birthday as ‘day of special significance’
There will be no Harvey Milk Day in California. On Sept. 30, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill designating May 22 of each year as Harvey Milk Day – the birthday of the San Francisco homosexual-rights hero.
The bill, AB 2567, by Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, would have designated Harvey Milk Day as “a day of special significance,” and required the governor to proclaim Harvey Milk Day on May 22 every year. In addition, it would have “encouraged” public schools and educational institutions to observe Harvey Milk Day by conducting “exercises remembering and recognizing the life of Harvey Milk.”
In 1977, Milk became the first openly homosexual man elected to an important political office in the U.S. when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. He and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated the following year by fellow Supervisor Dan White.
“Perhaps more than any other modern figure, Harvey Milk’s life and political career embody the rise of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights movement,” said Leno in a legislative analyst’s review of the bill. “He was the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in a major city, serving on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors from 1977-1978. This bill would put California on record as recognizing the social contributions that Harvey Milk made to our nation as a civil rights leader. It would also allow schools to conduct activities that would foster respect for all, and educate students about an important figure who is often omitted from history lessons.”
Here is the text of Schwarzenegger’s veto message in its entirety: “To the Members of the California State Assembly: I am returning Assembly Bill 2567 without my signature. I respect the author’s intent to designate May 22nd as ‘Harvey Milk Day’ and a day of special significance for California public schools and educational institutions to honor Harvey Milk as an important community leader and public official in the city and county of San Francisco. However, I believe his contributions should continue to be recognized at the local level by those who were most impacted by his contributions. For this reason, I am unable to sign this bill.”

Glad to see the governor has maybe one slice of common sense left after capitulating to the socialist ideals of this disturbing state. The fact that anyone would propose a day for this man is troubling. The fact that there are so many American heros that children have no idea about is sad. The have no concept about General Grant, Teddy Roosevelt, Sgt. York, along with countless heros of World Wars II, Korea, Viet’nam, Mogudishu and Iraq. They also are trying to suppress Sept. 11th like it never occurred. Because they think America deserved it. This is the state we live in, a disgusting resemblance of what it once was. I don’t even recognize it any more. People also need to realize how active Satan was in the sixties.

When will our bishops plan for the day when genuinely Catholic and other Christian citizens will be unable to get teaching credentials because they must in conscience refuse to demonstrate “gay is OK” attitudes or refuse to demonstrate gay-friendly lesson plans as part of the student teaching process? That’s where this is headed. Julian lives.

Same-sex attraction is a disorder and engaging in same-sex sexual acts is intrinsically evil. No thoughtful society should promote such behavior; it will inevitably lead to personal and social chaos. God bless those who struggle with this attraction, perhaps someday soon its causes will be better understood. We need to continue to protect and support marriage between a man and a woman. Yes on California’s Proposition 8.

No use crying over ‘Spilled Milk’. And as a CA teacher, I am very glad this boondoggle did not pass.

Telephoned objections must have been overwhelming. Good job, folks. Too bad we don’t have a telephone number to call that will as effectively fix the Nation’s economic problem. The Wall Street bailout (… c’mon, now … of course it is) pushes us one step closer to the USA becoming the USSR (Untied States Socialist Republic). Need to pray harder, I guess?

In other words, his contributions, if any, were as mayor of San Francisco, rather than as a proponent of sodomy who was able to get elected to a political office. Fair enough.
