We’re a month away from the Day of Silence, when tens of thousands of students will stay silent for an entire day at school to draw attention to the bullying and silencing of LGBT youth in schools. So that means it’s time for a huge group of bigoted assholes to demand that parents keep their kids home from school that day lest they suddenly turn gay.
If you have school age children, contact your administration as soon as possible to ask this specific question: Will you be permitting students to refuse to speak in class on the Day of Silence? If the administration either answers “Yes” or dodges the question, please call your child or children out of school on the Day of Silence. Every absence costs districts money, and money talks.
Also, if your school will be permitting students to refuse to speak in class, politely insist that an email be sent to every family informing them of the following: 1. The Day of Silence will be taking place in classes on April 17, 2. Students will be permitted to refuse to speak during instructional time, 3. The Day of Silence is organized and promoted by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.
Parents have a right to know.
The Day of Silence is the queen of all the numerous homosexuality-affirming activities that take place in public schools. It started in one university and then like a cancer metastasized to thousands of high schools, and then into middle schools. Before long it will take place in elementary schools. Leftists know that it’s easier to indoctrinate 16-year-olds than 36-year-olds and easier still to indoctrinate 6-year-olds.
The letter is signed by a veritable Who’s Who of Christian right bigots, including Matt Barber, Linda Harvey, Peter LaBarbera, Mat Staver, Scott Lively and many others. And they are all absolutely terrified at the notion that their children might be exposed to other kids who don’t think gay kids should be bullied and that this mere thought will inspire them to drop to their knees not to pray but to fellate someone. Is your parenting so weak that the mere acknowledgement that anti-gay bullying exists and is wrong will make your child suddenly fabulous?
