Keep Children Home From School on GLSEN's Day of Silence April 11, 2014
Written By Laurie Higgins

The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) seeks again to exploit captive audiences and disrupt instructional time in public schools for the purposes of transforming the moral and political views of other people's children through the Day of Silence (DOS). Parents, however, do not have to sit by and passively accept this political action in the class. On the DOS, they can keep their children home.

GLSEN promotes the DOS as a bullying-prevention program. If that were its true goal, IFI and every one of the organizations who are urging parents to keep their children home would support the DOS.

Unfortunately, the ultimate goal of GLSEN and those who promote the DOS is to eradicate conservative moral beliefs. And they are using public schools to achieve that end, thus transforming education into indoctrination.

Every year middle and high schools see a new crop of students whose parents naively believe that public schools value diversity, honor all voices, foster critical thinking, and remain neutral on controversial social issues. Many parents have no idea the extent to which pro-homosexuality propaganda pervades our schools. And many have never heard of the Day of Silence.

Here are just some of the ways public elementary, middle, and high schools are treating the controversial topics of homosexuality and gender confusion:

Increasing numbers of schools are allowing gender-confused students to share restrooms with students of the opposite sex, including even elementary schools.
Teachers-who are, of course, government employees-are being forced by the government to lie by being compelled to refer to gender-confused students by pronouns that designate the opposite sex.
Girls are being permitted to run for prom king, and boys are being permitted run for prom queen.
Elementary schools are marching in "gay" pride parades.
California schools are legally required to teach positively about homosexuality and gender confusion in all social studies classes in grades 6-12, and all resources that espouse dissenting views are by law prohibited.
Schools-including elementary schools-promote Leftist views of homosexuality and gender confusion in sex ed curricula and in presentations about "family diversity."
Elementary schools make picture books that depict homosexuality positively available to children in their libraries.
Schools host dances for homosexual students.
Teachers actively promote the legal recognition of same-sex pseudo-marriages.
School theater departments mount productions of The Laramie Project,Zanna, Don't!, and Rent, and English teachers teach Angels in America, The Laramie Project, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Film teachers show Brokeback Mountain.
Schools promote the normalization of homosexuality and gender confusion through Spirit Day, Ally Week, National Coming Out Day, "LGBT" History Month, "LGBT" Pride Month, and the queen of all homosexuality-affirming days: the Day of Silence.
And what do conservatives do in response? Virtually nothing. There is, however, something easy they can do. If their children's schools permit students to refuse to speak on the DOS, they can keep their children home.

Keeping their children home on the Day of Silence is an easy, safe way for parents to express to school administrations, faculty, and school boards that they-parents-oppose the promotion of non-factual Leftist beliefs about disordered sexuality in their schools to their children.

Every student absence costs schools money, and that matters much more to school administrators and school boards than the beliefs and feelings of conservative parents.

I wonder how long it'll take the Neo-Nazi Far Right Christians to mobilize against this? It's just letting gays be married, what's the big freaking deal? I'm straight, and see no harm to society.
Ok I don't care about gays to each their own, But all I'm saying if a person gives an opinion about their View on the subject and their opinion doesn't coincide with yours you say hateful thing about that person if a person doesn't agree with gay marriages so what let them have that right. If you are ok with the gays rights to marriage or whatever they do then it's only fair that you are ok with the people that are against it; it's not a one way street you you preach equal rights well you need to practice what you preach, because it's not considered equal rights to only let one side have their rights. You tell how that's fair, but I know you won't all you will do is only see your views and nobody else's you have consider everyone's views not just your own, they call that selfish hypocrite. So before you go and bash someone's opinions just think about their feeling, as well as the feelings of gays of which you only defend.

There's a whole log of hate being thrown about here and thats a shame. I honestly believe the reason the government doesn't want same sex marriage is because of taxes. Single people pay more taxed than married people . If gay folks marry there will ne less money bring paid in. That's just my thought on this subject.

An army of 40 million (plus) Americans (and growing) has declared war on homosexuals. They have had enough of them pushing their agenda and lifestyle in their faces. Now these sick freaks who are demons and condemned to hell will see and feel the wrath of God's warriors. Watch the internet news and not some lame wacked out liberal media.
Homosexuals will be forced back into the closet, and there is nothing they can do to stop it from happening. They are outnumbered a Godzillion to one.
Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha!!!! Yes, you fundies are always declaring "war" on something!!! Too bad, not once in the history of our country, have any of your "wars" ended in your favor!!!!! NOT ONCE!!!!

Immigration made a real difference in the Philippines
Go ahead and dig your head into the sand.
Russia, China and North Korea are going to make a real difference in our Constitution? Get real. Oh, that's right, you can't, because you live in a fantasy land.

Our marriages are a reality. They will be fully recognized in all states within 5 years, if even that long. And there's not a damn thing you and your little one man crusade can do to alter that fact. NOW, you run along and bury YOUR head in the sand!!!

We won't even address all the blatent lies in the above post. Everyone knows fundies are liars already.

YES, fundies, please KEEP your children home on these days. Nothing helps further ostracize your children from their peers then when you make them pawns in your agendas!!! Your need to have your children feel even more removed from their peers demonstrates what sort of folk you really are. You're children will come back the day after, and be mocked and teased because of YOUR efforts. LOL!!! But then, we all know how you folk love certain children being mocked and teased!!! You invented it.
