A Homophobic Group Killed Arizona's Anti-Bullying Law

Arizona Senate Minority Leader David Schapira tried to address bullying in the state's school districts this year.

Schapira — an instructor at Arizona State University, a former high school teacher in the Paradise Valley School District, a member of Tempe Union High School District governing board, and a ranking member of Senate Education Committee — knows the ins and outs of the state's education system.

The Democrat offered a bill to establish a standard definition of bullying for all school districts and to broaden the requirements for the districts' policies and employee training.

Schapira's legislation never made it to the desk of Governor Jan Brewer, but this wasn't because of inefficiencies in the bill or a lack of prospective votes.

After successfully making it through a series of committees and a vote by the Senate, the bill was held in the House, losing its chance at becoming a law.

The force behind the killing of the bill last term, Schapira says, was powerhouse lobbyist Cathi Herrod of the Center for Arizona Policy, which describes itself on its website as "dedicated to influencing our culture through the proclamation of biblical truth."

Schapira says, "Herrod made it very, very clear that the reason she wanted my bill dead was because she felt it was just focused on gay kids. Now, the words 'sexual orientation' or 'gay' were never mentioned anywhere in my bill or referenced. Basically, Cathi Herrod is so focused on ensuring that gay kids aren't protected that she killed a bill that protects all kids."

Indeed, homophobia is a big part of what the Center for Arizona Policy is all about.

The group's Guide to Family Issues speaks for itself.

"There is a deliberate, concerted effort by homosexual activists to gain access to public school children in order to influence and indoctrinate them into embracing homosexual behavior as a legitimate choice among a whole range of 'lifestyle' options," states a section in the guide titled "Homosexuality in Public Schools."

That same guide declares homosexuality a choice, claims pornography "has been linked" to rapes, child molestations, and serial killers and makes other moralistic declarations.

Bills attempting to rid Arizona law of homophobia in its standards for HIV education in school — which explicitly bans "portray[ing] homosexuality as a positive alternative lifestyle," among other things — repeatedly have been met with opposition from Herrod and her organization and remain law to this day.

With one hand on the Bible, the Center for Arizona Policy continuously has increased its grip on the Legislature, as 13 of the group's bills were signed into law this legislative session, bringing its grand total to 114 laws since 1995.

Speaking out against Schapira's bill on her blog — foreshadowing the bill's death — Herrod reiterated the conspiracy theory about gay indoctrination, as the lobbyist declared her vision of how public schools ought to run:

"Not only are [bullying bills] a thinly veiled attempt to allow political groups into our schools, they also divert the focus of our school system off the fundamentals," she wrote. "Class time should be for reading, writing, and arithmetic."

Tell that to people like Caleb Laieski, a teenager who dropped out of high school in Surprise because of anti-gay bullying, after he was threatened and even followed home by some of his classmates.

Laieski's story, though, is one of the few bullying stories that made headlines for reasons not related to suicide.

He's now a major advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender kids, even meeting with members of Congress and President Barack Obama to talk about federal protection of LGBT youngsters.

Locally, Laieski has landed a spot in Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton's office for a few hours a week as a youth-diversity liaison, and he sometimes teams up with Phoenix's first lady, Nicole France Stanton, who's also working on anti-bullying initiatives.

"Caleb's case is a perfect example of a child who was [bullied] repeatedly in the school environment, and he ended up dropping out of school," Nicole Stanton says. "He's the textbook example of what a child looks like when [he or she is] bullied."

Stanton knows what textbook examples of bullying look like. Her older brother was bullied in high school, which she says "culminated in a physical assault of a significant magnitude."

She also realizes that while bullying is getting more attention, it's clear that some people don't understand what constitutes bullying as they deride the need for anti-bullying legislation, mostly in the form of the "kids being kids" defense. A "definitional problem," she calls it.

"We're not trying to control niceness and civility," Stanton says. "I'm trying to deal with bullying."

As Schapira says, "When a kid feels unsafe in the learning environment — when they're more focused on the teasing and the physical threats that are coming from their classmates than they are on their learning — that's where we have to draw the line."

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Arizona is one of only eight states without a "model policy" setting standards for school districts on how to address bullying.

The law setting the standard for anti-bullying policies in Arizona, passed by the Legislature in 2005, calls for districts to set their own policies and definitions.

Homosexually is not a mental disease. Close-minded Bigotry however is a serious mental disease like you have right there.

Anti bullying was the brainchild of Kevin Jennings, a gay activists who actually admitted he envisioned it as a cover-story to get pro-gay propaganda in schools, in his 2005 speech, "Winning the Culture War". Anti bullying is but a mere well-scripted, social-engineering plot, a social-engineering platform of gay activists to gain access to the hearts and minds of America's kids, and....VIOLA!! It has largely worked. Why cant' we combat school violence trends without shining a celebatory light on homosexuality? There's no way to cater to every single personal trait which would compel aggressive kids to bully, what makes gays so special (that tiny 3% minority)?

So much for separation of Church and state. The government is moving more and more away from our constitutional standing. The Treaty of Tripoli clearly states that the U.S. is not founded on the Christian religion. Add to the fact that most of the founding fathers were Deist and you have the reason why we don't let one religion rule out country. Before you know it it'll be like Iran and Afghanistan where Sharia law is practiced...

I think bullying legislation should be for all kids. The fact that some of our citizens create different categories to deny some of our kids equal protection under the law makes me wonder whether they're Christians or not and how well they understand the Constitution that they tend to think only they know. IMHO, a true conservative wouldn't bastardize the 14th Amendment of the Constitution to promote his/her own idea of whom he/she thinks the law should protect, and a true follower of Jesus would not endorse the abuse of anyone, especially a child. Jesus said "Let the children come unto me for such is the kingdom of heaven," but some Americans are acting as if he made differences among the children when he uttered this statement, imho, and too many Christians seem to forget that Jesus was crucified--one of the most brutal ways to die on the planet. It seems strange to me that some Christians don't do what Jesus did, but they allow their own biases to distort his teachings the same way they allow them to distort the fact that the U.S. Constitution makes no differences among us based on race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, religion, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic status, etc.

Huh? Would Jesus condone bullying of a homosexual? Casting stones? For that matter plenty of Christians (the real kind) are bullied and now that group also will not have protection. Herod was viewed as a bully too. ;) We do need to have a universal definition and sufficient training. Most school staff are in permanent CYA mode vs. reality - even if you have proof it is meaningless unless you have $$$$ attorney. Stuck in a bully/mob/targeting work environment as they are, it is difficult for them to recognize - and then there is the fact that bullying does not stop when you turn 18 or leave high school - so which tactic is preparing kids for the real world?

I will support same sex "marriage" but what will the same sex advocates give in return?

I will change my position on same sex "marriage" if the same sex camp will agree to the following:
1 - STOP TARGETING CHILDREN. No gay agenda education in grades k through 12, no trying to change children's organization like the Boy Scouts of America, no schools named after Harvey Milk (he is a pedophile). No same sex groups to be anywhere near any child at all.
2 - NO ADOPTION. The children already have a bad start in life so give them a break.
3 - STOP ATTACKING FREE SPEECH. Normal folks should not be attack for expressing an opinion.
4 - STOP REDEFINING WORDS. "Gay", "marriage","bullying", "bigot" are now being distorted and needs to be restored.
5 - STOP ATTACKING RELIGION. Most religion have on the books that homosexuality is bad but that is freedom of religion. Also, religious folks can vote, so the right to vote should not be criticize.
6 - STOP DRUGS, ALCOHOL, PUBLIC BATHROOM SEX AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. These high risk behaviors are not only dangerous for your types but it is an annoying inconvenience for us normals.
7 - SEE YOUR DOCTOR REGULARLY. CDC have some concerns for your population.
8 - FLY THE STARS AND STRIPES. There is an absence of the American Flag when you people congregate.
9 - STOP THE PROPAGANDA. We see right through it.
10 - ADMIT THAT THERE ARE BIGGER PROBLEMS THAN SAME SEX "MARRIAGE". Many folks are unemployed or homeless and those who are not are having a tough time making ends meet. But my impression is that you folks do not care because they are not homosexuals.

If your group agrees to ALL OF THIS, then I will give my support. Any takers? Probably not.

What is this site "Queers R Us"!! Bunch of complaining perverts that want the government to protect them. Are you people helpless, brain-dead which is it?!!

REPUBLICAN PARTY (scammers that make look great anyone or anything and regardless of ugliness or perversion = support for democratic party or zionism) AND DEMOCRATS (extremistic ZIONIST party) ARE ONE PARTY SYSTEM (self elected democracy = zionist totalitarianism = prison state) WHILE DUKES(pukes) ARE USED TO FORTIFY THIS ONE PARTY HOMOBAMAISOSAMA SYSTEM WITH ADDITIONAL BETREYAL(need more proofs = your genocide).

ZIONISM = REPRESENTS FOREIGN(multiculturalism) AND NOT NATIVE WHITE POPULATION IN OUR COUNTRIES. ZIONISM EQUALS TO TERRORIST ORGANISATION(not only because of favoring non whites vs even native whites , but further due to traditional use of terrorism to forcefully rehabilitate CHRISTIAN WHITES - worldwide). United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379, adopted on November 10, 1975 by a vote of 72 to 35 (with 32 abstentions), " that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination". The resolution was revoked by Resolution 46/86 on December 16, 1991(revoked by father from G. W. BUSH who created 911).

SO WHAT DO YOU READ TODAY !!? IS IT 70 YEARS OLD HOMOBAMAISOSAMA NEWS (world of lies and dementia) OR IS IT ABOUT ALIENS/BIG FOOT/VAMPIRES !!? WORLD OF PERVERSION OR SOME OTHER LOCHNESS MOSTER THAT HELPS YOU GOING !!? PERHAPS, IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP !!

INDISPUTABLE FACTS ABOUT TERRORIST ALEX JONES (Ron Paul) & TERRORIST MARK POTOK (the two criminal masterminds who orchestrated 911 on behalf of self elected governments - worldwide = NAZI witch hunting/scapegoating = Breivik and other fake white nationalism explained = lies, abductions, unemployment, and plot were and are Obamination's strongest weapons for almost 70 years now).

FROM 911 TO FOREIGN WARS IN THE NAME OF ISREAL & EXILED WHITE AMERICAN REFUGEES SEEKING ASYLUM ABROAD RIGHT NOW !!!

I'm kind of surprised that these "proclaimers of biblical truth" didn't try and push something like adding language to make special exceptions for religious conscience, which would have made an anti-bullying law into a pro-bullyling law that gave official legal sanction to bullying and harassment justified by religious bigotry. That little trick has been tried elsewhere.

It's all so simple, Rome is that away! These people have chosen an order of things, where religious leaders, information sharing control and if the court says he/she is a bad guy he goes back to jail does not pass go and does not collect $200.00 dollars. Then when he gets out that is what he/she gets to start a life again. The Catholic church heads it all up and everyone else must fall in line behind the same people that put together the genocides of all time. Churches like the Druids just got included in the group. Religions want a pice of the pie. JW's go from house to house and report who in the neighborhood are living willing to use the bible as there rule book. These reports are also a part of jail and in the tanks the bible is used and read from each day openly and there is no where to get away from the on slot of indoctrination. Add drugs which erase everything in your mind and you have plea bargains for things that cops set up or congress persons willing to invest in things like cyber security threats and placing devices in people they feel are a threat to their investment and social network/order. It does not stop there because the algorithms are simple mathematical codes written to be used as a change a few zeros and ones and charge more money for the software, maintenance of the billionaires that use this stuff. Churches have the placards in Burbank, Hollywood indicating Java Script. These are the people that blessed the guns that brought us world wars, and they are still up to there old tricks. I was there at Stanford, I wore a bag over my head because my face looked like hamburger meat. I know what these people are doing and it's not good. Yes it is still going on. It's pretty easy to tell people your the good guy when you can have someone drugged and thrown into prison. That is where the twist is. I was in a waiting room and a girl said she knew that if she told the guy who was going to put a helmet on her head that she saw angels her family would get a high ranking job in the government. The experiments are horrific terror and that is who is making our laws. We do not have to cradle a bible to be good to one another and the policies are only because they are control freaks who have not learned any other way to get that control so most of them say they love god but really if someone uses the information from studies to murder people who are they really? They are investors in industry using excuses to further their murders for a lie that has been sold for 40 years about sex offender. Remember the pink triangles and Gerlings being shot for being a homosexual? I don't know how much more clearly I can paint the picture for you all. These people want control over the internet so they can do what they tell you they can't. So they can terrorize people over sex. The definition of a terrorist is someone who uses intimidation through a network. Why do you think people want to take the use of the internet from certain people. They say they want to protect their children from sexual thoughts? They really are a murderous joke.

@Unknown Yes, the close minded, ignorant, intolerant bigotry and fake mental health authority to diagnose homophobia (a mental condition that includes an irrational fear of homosexuals or homosexuality)  is not the healthy focus of those that claim to want to help kids.



While the gay agenda's ignorant, intolerant bigotry toward people of faith and those concerned with family values may or may not be an illness, I'm perplexed that those engaged in the proliferation of perverse sex have the wherewithal to call normal, ethical people names and make up fake diagnoses for them.


In our country, today, how can you even call a concern of the advancement of the gay agenda irrational?

Sick funny that the church is supporting bullying with it's choice. Race, religion, sexual choice - these and many more are cause for bullying. Sometimes the reason why someone is a target is beyond our understanding which is why I support a law based on universal principle vs. creating protected classes of people. This will never work because the bully nature will just find new target not in protected class.

A persons sexuality is not a "viewpoint" to be had, it just is. Name one group of people who aggressively fight to keep YOU from being protected. Don't worry, I'll wait.

Beyond that, this bill was introduced to help keep EVERYONE safe, regardless of why of the bullying is occurring.

Right, which is why all that contract law is bullshit. If you can't take care of your business, why should the government. Same for traffic laws, if you can't take care of your car, why should the government. Same for criminal laws. if you can't take care of yourself, why should the government.

It's survival of the fittest out there - why should the government do anything to help protect you ... unless .... wait for it ....

One of the legitimate roles of government is to provide a mechanism where people can "take care of themselves" by availing themselves to the rule of the law, thereby maintaining a civil society where revenge and thuggery are minimized and the Rule of Law triumphs over the Rule of Fear.

People who actively support bullying, such as Ms. Martin, are typically afraid that without bullying they would be expected to survive according to their skill and ability. While that might be good for the USA, they would ultimately suffer and many would starve.

Bullying is good when you're the bully, so they think. Hence, Herrod's opposition.
