The following comes from an Apr. 23 message from SaveCalifornia.com.
With the U.S. Postal Service unveiling a postage stamp honoring homosexual activist Harvey Milk, a leading pro-family organization is urging everyone who supports the protection of children to avoid this shameful stamp.
“Harvey Milk was a very dishonorable man — a sexual anarchist who hated sexual boundaries, a homosexual predator of teens and boyish-looking young men, and a brazen attacker of moral standards and parental rights,” said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, which promotes moral virtues for the common good. (Harvey Milk documentation from The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk, and other verified sources.)
Thomasson said, “If you believe in protecting children from bad role models, don’t buy the Harvey Milk stamp.”
SaveCalifornia.com notes the hypocrisy of the postal service’s “Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee,” which claims it solely “commemorates positive contributions to American life, history, and culture,” saying “disasters will not be commemorated on U.S. postage stamps or stationery.”
SaveCalifornia.com is also urging California parents to boycott “Harvey Milk Day,” an official “day of significance” for California K-12 public schools on May 22. SaveCalifornia.com, which promotes moral virtues for the common good, is urging fathers and mothers to demand that teachers, principals, and school board members refuse to honor this bad role model or else they’ll keep their children home that day or exit the government schools entirely.
Randy Shilts, a homosexual San Francisco Chronicle reporter, wrote a favorable and sordid biography of Milk in The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk.
According to this reputable biography, Milk repeatedly engaged in adult-child sex, advocated for multiple homosexual relationships at the same time, and told a very public lie because he thought it would get him ahead. Since SB 572 (2009) requires “exercises remembering the life of Harvey Milk,” children can be taught to support and emulate these bad values.
Shilts’ 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)
“It would be to boyish-looking men in their late teens and early 20’s that Milk would be attracted for the rest of his life.” (page 24)
“Harvey always had a penchant for young waifs with substance abuse problems.” (page 180)
“Harvey confided one night that at twenty-four, Doug was the oldest man Harvey had ever started an affair with.” (page 237)
Explaining Milk’s many flings and affairs with teenagers and young men, Shilts writes how Milk told one “lover” why it was OK for him to also have multiple relationships simultaneously:
“As homosexuals, we can’t depend on the heterosexual model…We grow up with the heterosexual model, but we don’t have to follow it. We should be developing our own life-style. There’s no reason why you can’t love more than one person at a time. You don’t have to love them all the same. You love some less, love some more — and always be honest with everybody about where you’re at. They in turn can do the same thing and it can open up a bigger sphere.” (pages 237-238)
“He had not suffered this disgrace, he told a later campaign manager, but he knew the story would make good copy. If anyone said something to Harvey about his fondness for such stunts, he would gesture wildly as launched into a lecture. ‘Symbols, symbols, symbols,’ he insisted. Sure, he had not been kicked out of the military…The point of the story was to let people know that service people routinely do get kicked out. Besides, he once confided, ‘Maybe people will read it, feel sorry for me, and then vote for me.'” (pages 78-79)
