I support the "Day of Silence." In fact, I support 365 of 'em

On April 18th, a number of public schools across the country will hold a so-called "Day of Silence." The day was originally promoted by an adult homosexual advocacy group, GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) with the intent of ending discrimination against students who were allegedly harassed because of alternative sexual lifestyles.

Though I do not support special rights for homosexuals, I do believe the concept of silence in our schools concerning the subject of homosexuality is appropriate. In fact, I feel there should be silence 365 days a year--when it comes to the discussion of how individuals have sex. Wouldn't it be wonderful if school children were not bombarded with propaganda from special interest groups, like GLSEN, which promote unhealthy and, some times, deadly lifestyles.

However, there are those who are using our nation's public schools to advance their political agenda. What was once considered unlawful private behavior is now being presented to children--in the third grade or earlier--as "normal."

Some say we are living in a changing world, but who is doing the changing and for what reason? Children's lives should not be complicated as they try to understand why Johnny has two "mommies." It is sad when children are subjected to such psychological trauma. Our nation's young people should not be forced to share the collective guilt created by adults who put sex above the welfare of their children.

It is no secret some believe the best place to change society is in our public schools. Homosexual groups admit this is part of their agenda. They feel children who have been taught to believe in moral truths need to be re-educated. These special interest groups do not respect the religious beliefs of parents and their mission is to socially re-engineer society.

Thankfully, Americans are starting to fight back. Led by a national coalition of pro-family organizations called "Not Our Kids," parents are being encouraged to boycott the Day of Silence.
