Christian Hypocrites Denounce “Day of Silence” While Remaining Silent About Pro-Life Version of the Event
More than a dozen leaders of conservative Christian groups have issued a call for parents to keep their children at home during next month’s “Day of Silence” (a student-run initiative during which volunteers don’t speak, all on behalf of the members of the LGBT community who have been forced to be silent about their sexual identities).

Texas Superintendent Defends Principal Who Reads Bible Verses During Announcements, Calling His Actions “Neutral”
