“Day of Silence” Articulates Condemnation of Biblical Values

Excerpted from Concerned Women for America
This Wednesday, April 18, homosexual students and their supporters will refuse to participate in class, remaining silent in protest over the treatment of "sexual minorities." Along with its disruptive nature in the classroom, the day also sends clear messages to Christian students that Biblical views of human sexuality are "homophobic," "hateful" and "discriminatory."

Matt Barber, Concerned Women for America's (CWA) Policy Director for Cultural Issues says the "Day of Silence" is the creation of homosexual activist groups hoping to instill a victim mentality among today's youth.

"The radical homosexual lobby has done a masterful job of infiltrating our government schools to gain control of the minds of our youth. Their propaganda tactics are time-tested," Barber said. "With liberal school officials in tow, they brazenly circumvent and abuse your parental authority to use good-hearted but misguided children as pawns to further their deceptive agenda," he added.

In response, the "Not Our Kids Coalition," of which CWA is a part, is asking parents to keep their children out of school that day if their child's school is participating. Instead, parents are asked to teach their children age-appropriate and truthful information about natural human sexuality, marriage and family at home on April 18 rather than subject them to this disruptive day of wholesale homosexual indoctrination.

Mission America maintains a list of schools known to participate in the annual "Day of Silence." Parents are encouraged to check the list to determine if their child's school is participating. They are encouraged to call the school and ask if they are allowing students to participate in the disruptive "Day of Silence."

Christian teens across the country will be countering the Wednesday event with the "Day of Truth" on April 19. Sponsored by our friends at the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), and endorsed by CWA and other like-minded organizations, participating students will speak the truth in love to fellow students without disrupting the learning environment.
