The Days are coming…

After March Madness – which I am looking forward to – the month of the Days will be here. April 15 (or 12th if you listen to the PSA on the website) is set as the Day of Truth with April 16 being the Day of Silence. The boycotters will also be pursuing their mischief. This week, the Illinois Family Institute sent out an email asking for supporters to find out if their local school would be taking part in the Day of Silence. Soon after, Exodus sent out an email promoting the Day of Truth.

In response to the boycott and the Day of Truth, I will again support the Golden Rule Pledge. For more on that, go on over to the Golden Rule Pledge site.  And consider joining the Facebook group supporting the GRP.

Also, this week, fellow Crosswalk.com blogger, John Shore posted on the GRP. His initial reaction to the GRP was not positive and his readers are giving me some tips.

    Wow. They can move quickly when it moves them. Can’t have people assuming they support the Day of Silence, can we?

    Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

    Ohm. Yah, i can understand John Shore. Chistians love to hear you go to hell, when you have abnormal sex. They go to church to hear this. They go to church to hear that hurricans are from abortion and gay pride. Some Christians love to block LGB-Kids or Childs from LGBs from school. And they would like to be so treated, when they where ´gay (in their thinking now.) And so i shoud be treated?

    Also: I have nothing against homosexuals. / I hate the sin, not the sinner. And so i say: All homosexuals have bad father-relation. So i use Amsterdam-Study. So i use all the bad statistics about homosexuals without to qualify it more, only the bad results. Or something else.

    Everytime, when i hear or read something of the kind it means not much to me. I question or look futher. What he means real with this?

    Not particularly pleased with either side’s approach at the moment. I have a lot of trouble with ‘silence’ as an effective communicator. I also have problems with scheduling the ‘Day of Truth’ to coincide with the “Day of Silence” and then pretending that it isn’t intended to be ‘confrontive’.

    On the bright side, though, it does put a bit more pressure on the Christians. It gives them the ‘Day of Truth’ to express their beliefs and the ‘Day of Silence’ to demonstrate them. Do you really ‘love the sinner and hate the sin’? That better play out on the ‘Day on Silence’ or you’ll be giving a vivid example of hypocrisy to impressionable youth.

    Sometimes, I think EXODUS, despite past experiences, forgets how many true bigots jump on the bandwagon as it passes by. I hear what they are saying, and I judge them ‘clean’; I hear what some others are saying as they wait to jump on the bandwagon as it passes, and I am mortified.

    It’s one man’s opinion, but I wish with all of my heart that EXODUS hadn’t made the well intended ‘Day of Truth’ tangent to the ‘Day of Silence’.
