One of the projects of the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is “No Name Calling Week,” which will be held January 15-19 this year. It sounds good, but the promotion of homosexuality and transgenderism is woven throughout the week’s activities. GLSEN provides lesson plans and ideas for teachers to use in class. Will your child’s school or the school you pay taxes to support be participating?
Friday, April 21st is the homosexual Day of Silence – a day the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network has set aside to further normalize homosexuality and transgenderism in our nation’s public schools. Will your child’s school permit students and/or teachers to refuse to speak during instructional time?
Too many schools in the US will be participating in “LGBT History Month” and/or the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Mix It Up Day.” The purpose of both, as well as “National Coming Out Day” this month, is to promote the idea that ‘gay is okay’ and a girl can become a boy or vice versa. What is your local school doing this month?
When you shop, do you ever consider how a company spends its profits? Increasingly Christians need to be aware of the policies of corporations that gladly take our money on products they offer and then turn around and support those things we know to be harmful to society or extend dangerous policies.
The purpose of the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network’s Day of Silence is simply to indoctrinate impressionable students that ‘gay is okay.’ Of course, that’s not what they say! Instead they say, it’s a day of action by remaining silent to highlight the silence ‘gay,’ lesbian, bisexual and transgenders students are forced to live in everyday. In reality, it is the highjacking of a taxpayer-funded school day in order to promote the idea that homosexuality/bisexuality/transgenderism are normal. April 15th is not just a day for paying taxes this year, but a day for GLSEN to target our children.
Friday, April 17th is the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) Gay Day of Silence. This is NOT a day about preventing bullying as GLSEN says; it is a day to send the message throughout the school that “gay is okay.” Students who say otherwise will be harassed and ridiculed. This is a day in which the school house is hijacked by GLSEN and their allies and students are encouraged to remain silent to show support for students who identify as homosexual.
The chief promoter and organizer of the Gay Day of Silence is the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which says students “take a vow of silence to bring attention to anti-LGBT name calling, harassment and bullying in their schools.” GLSEN provides information, resources and, for minimal purchase price, materials for students to use during the Day of Silence. This is an anti-bullying ploy, with a real goal of gaining sympathy and support for those students who identify as homosexual or transgender.
However, the ultimate goal is to normalize homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism. GLSEN’s claim that students who identify as LGBT are bullied more than any other student is based upon their own online School Climate Survey.
So . . . is your local school allowing silence during the Day of Silence? If your child’s school has a Gay Straight Alliance club, there is a high likelihood that they will be participating in the Day of Silence.
Today is the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network’s (GLSEN) “Day of Silence” in which it asks students to remain silent throughout the school day in order to show support for those who identify as homosexual. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) has contacted many of the schools which have participated in the past, asking them if they will permit students to refuse to respond to questions directed at them during instructional time as a part of the Day of Silence protest. The AFA of PA has asked those schools which have students participating to not permit them to remain silent when called upon by a teacher during class time.
Tomorrow is the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network’s Day of Silence in which participating middle and high school students are to remain silent throughout the school day in order to show support for “disenfranchised” students who identify as ‘gay, lesbian, bi or trans.’ Is your school or classroom teacher permitting students to remain silent during instructional time? Even the ACLU and homosexual group Lambda Legal recognize that students have no constitutional right not to speak during instructional time.
