Parents: Protect Kids from Homosexual Indoctrination

A national coalition of pro-family groups are urging parents to keep their students home from school during the annual "Day of Silence" . . .

UPDATE 4/22/09: Christians suffer wrath of the tolerant

-- From "Students Encouraged to Skip School on 'Day of Silence'" by Lawrence Jones, Christianity Today 4/14/09

Over 20 Christian-based conservative groups have called for the massive walkout from middle and high schools participating the April 17 event, arguing that the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)'s sponsored event politicizes the classroom to support the belief that homosexuality is moral.

The groups have encouraged parents and teens who are not willing to risk teacher retribution or missing school to send a letter to schools officials expressing their objections to Day of Silence.

The coalition has also called attention to a resolution sitting before Congress that would urge the federal government and public schools to officially recognize and celebrate Day of Silence. The legislation also requests that "the President issue a proclamation calling on the people of the United States to observe the National Day of Silence with appropriate ceremonies, programs, and activities."

The band of pro-family groups, meanwhile, says that by opposing the event they are in no way endorsing the bullying and harassment of [homosexuals or anyone else]

Meanwhile, several other Christian-based conservative groups are promoting the Day of Truth on April 20, the following Monday, as a direct response to Day of Silence. According to Day of Truth's Web site, it was established to "counter the promotion of the homosexual agenda and express an opposing viewpoint from a Christian perspective."
