If they don't like the day of silence - they can make it unnecessary

Students who will participate in the Day of Silence on April 19 are brave kids. Yesterday, I wrote about Amber Hatcher, a student in Desoto County, Florida. Participants are mostly straight children who stand against bullying their LGBTQ peers. Who could possibly be against a demonstration to end bullying?

Who? Those "good" Christians who are responsible for much of the bullying in the first place. American Family Association has the following advice for parents:

If these people don't like the Day of Silence, there is an easy way to bring it to a crashing halt; Make it unnecessary. Wouldn't it be more productive to teach their kids something about tolerance and respect? Maybe it's just me but it doesn't seem like a very good idea to teach kids to skip school in order to object to something that parents don't like. What kind of message does that send?
