During this all-day event, student activists and even school officials encourage students to be silent for the entire day as a sign of solidarity with the international LGBT movement. Students are encouraged to wear special pro-homosexual badges, stickers, and bracelets - which are often handed out at the school entrances that day. There are also pro-LGBT posters in the hallways, handouts, and even workshops.Wildmon goes on to rant:
You can actively oppose this hijacking of the classroom for political purposes and help de-politicize the learning environment by calling your child out of school if your child's school participates, promotes or allows "Day of Silence" activities.Wildmon goes on to instruct the faithful to contact their local school. Of course schools have little control over what is a voluntary action on the part of some students. Those kids have more common sense than the grownups at AFA.
The Day of Silence would be wholly unnecessary were it not for the efforts of AFA and other hate groups to denigrate LGBT people. They do so because of a slavish devotion to what they believe are ancient texts of wisdom or the literal word of their god. They manage to ignore all of the biblical fuck-ups with the ubiquitous (and meaningless) “God works in mysterious ways.”
What are these people afraid of? That there child might learn a real civics lesson about American values for fairness and equality?
