The pro-homosexual “Day of Silence” (DOS) is coming to your child’s school again. This is a movement to silence any criticism of homosexuality. It is a homosexual activism day that wears a mask of safety and operates in the schools under the disguise of “safe schools.”
Day of Silence is sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN. Its founder and former Executive Director, Kevin Jennings, is now the “Safe School Czar” at the U.S. Department of Education. The Day of Silence is one of the homosexual indoctrination programs operating in our schools.
Gay students and teachers are asked to go the entire day without speaking as a protest to the bullying and harassment students receive over their sexual orientation. Adult homosexual activists have manufactured a crisis of violence in the schools upon homosexual and cross-dressing students. These activists are ruining kids’ lives, putting kids at risk because of deadly behaviors and forcing gender confusion on them.
The goal behind Day of Silence is not about making schools safe but of silencing the Christian voice and the voice of those who do not approve of homosexuality. Students who do not support homosexuality have a right to say that two males or two females having sex together is repulsive. They also have a right to say people aren’t born homosexual without being called bigoted or hateful.
Action to Take: What Parents Should Do
Call your child’s middle school and high school and ask whether the administration and/or teachers will be permitting students to remain silent during class on the Day of Silence. If students will be permitted to remain silent, parents should:
1. Express their opposition by calling their children out of school on the Day of Silence. (Make certain of date the event is planned. The national date is April 16 but some schools observe DOS on a different day.)
2. Send out letter to the school administrators, the children’s teachers and all school board members or call them with this information. To find out who your local board members are simply call your local school district administration office.
3. Encourage church leadership to follow the bold example of Pastor Ken Hutcherson who vocally opposed “Day of Silence” in Redmond, Washington. He led the walkout in his community and over 600 of 1400 students were called out on the Day of Silence.
4. Parents should explain to their children why they are taking a stand: homosexuality is not innate; it is immoral and should be resisted; it is not equivalent to race; disapproval of homosexuality is not equivalent to racism or hatred or bullying; schools should not support a behavior that is physically, emotionally and spiritually destructive to individuals and society.
