Hate group urges truency

Tim Wildmon
Hate group leader and Christian supremacist, Tim Wildmon, is having an unwarranted meltdown over the Day of Silence
American Family Association, an anti-LGBT hate group, wants parents to keep their kids home on GLSEN's Day of Silence, this Friday, April 27. That makes no sense at all! The message that we should be sending children is that nothing is more important than their education.

Apparently they are fearful that the kids' peers are more persuasive than their parents. If that's true then they have bigger problems than the Day of Silence.

One cause promotes love. The other cause promotes hate. Which is the more advantageous to young students?
According to AFA:
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.
Even if that were true (Day of Silence is entirely student coordinated), what is the peril for conservative Christian students? Do they fear that straight kids are going to be turned gay? What is it that makes this more important than attending classes?
Although the adult activists claim that the "Day of Silence" (DOS) is put together by "students," it is in fact organized behind the scenes by adults with the enthusiastic cooperation of school officials. They use materials and instructions from a national homosexual activist group.
GLSEN sponsors the event but its presence is entirely the choice of students. What is the point? Again, are they claiming that kids turn gay? Or maybe the real problem is that AFA's bigotry becomes more obvious and odious when kids are better informed. AFA is obviously afraid of something.

What is it about teaching kids to respect everyone that AFA finds so troubling.  What message do they object to?

And which activism is more positive: Treating fellow students with kindness or not attending school because students want their LGBT peers to be treated with kindness? Which of the two sends the better life lesson?
You can actively oppose this hijacking of the classroom for political purposes and help de-politicize the learning environment by keeping your child out of school if your child's school participates, promotes or allows "Day of Silence" activities.
You can also oppose it by holding your breath until you turn blue. Neither will effect the change that AFA wants. They would prefer to push the envelope in never ending attempts to use public schools to proselytize. That's okay. Unconstitutional but that doesn't count when Christian privilege is at stake. Also, no one is hijacking anything.

This is pointless. Come to think of it, American Family Association is pointless. I would wager that they turn more people off to religion than they ever convert to their cause. Who needs some sanctimonious, self-righteous nitwit telling people that they have to live according to thousands of years old scrolls and tablets as if they are the literal word of their god?
