4/13/11: Morally-sensitive parents to keep their children home Friday

Morally-sensitive parents to keep their children home Friday
So-called 'Day of Silence' is in-your-face sexual indoctrination

Sacramento, California --  SaveCalifornia.com, a leading pro-family, pro-child organization, is calling upon parents of children in public schools to keep their kids home during this Friday's disruptive "Day of Silence."

On Friday, April 15, students participating in the "Day of Silence" will wear pro-homosexuality T-shirts, buttons, and stickers, refuse to answer teachers' questions in classrooms, make it difficult for other students to concentrate, and generally take over school campuses for the entire day.

School administrators have frequently denied sponsoring, participating in, or allowing the "Day of Silence," but are nonetheless allowing students to be silent without consequences. Even some teachers will "go silent," writing pro-homosexuality messages on boards, and setting up classroom displays to teach impressionable children that aggressive homosexual activists are "victims"; that more laws promoting their agenda are needed, when there are already numerous laws prohibiting physical harassment of students; and that homosexuality is natural and healthy, when it is actually unnatural and unhealthy.

"Parents who are hearing about 'Day of Silence' are appalled this immoral takeover is happening," said SaveCalifornia.com President Randy Thomasson. "They don't want their children subjected to in-your-face sexual indoctrination, so they're keeping their kids home. Because school districts are allowing this brainwashing during the entire school day, morally-sensitive parents are counter-protesting by removing both their child and the child's ADA funding on Friday."

See SaveCalifornia.com's website urging parents to "just walk out" of the "Day of Silence."

According to the "Day of Silence" website, three years ago some 8,000+ elementary, middle, and high schools participated, as well as some colleges.

As the homosexual activists themselves explain:  

"The Day of Silence is a perfect tool for creating change. We wanted a queer-friendly prom, and after showing that many students and staff care -- we got a queer-friendly prom. We said we wouldn't be silenced and we won't."

"The Day of Silence can be a great tool to catapult change at your school! Do you want a more LGBT inclusive library, teacher training, LGBT inclusive nondiscrimination policies or something else?"

"It's not academic to disrupt the school day for politically-correct sexual propaganda," Thomasson said. "It's not scientific to claim being 'gay and lesbian' is good and natural without teaching children the facts -- that there's no 'gay gene' and that homosexual behavior is the primary mode of HIV/AIDS transmission. And it's not scholarly to say this issue is about safety, since numerous laws already prohibit physical harassment or violence on school campuses."
