Homosexual Day of Silence - Is Your Child's School on the list?




Because of the action of concerned parents, hundreds of schools have removed their school as a listed participant in the pro-homosexual "Day of Silence." You can join the fight for your children too!

On, Friday, April 25, several thousand schools across the nation will be observing "Day of Silence (DOS)." DOS is a nationwide push to promote the homosexual lifestyle in public schools.

When AFA alerted parents of this public school classroom disruption by homosexual student activists, many took action immediately! If you haven't gotten involved, it's critical that you do so today!

A simple phone call or letter to school administrators, telling them your child will not attend school the day it observes DOS, may be enough to cause some participating schools to change their plans. Sample letter here.

Please listen to a 60-second radio ad warning parents about Day of Silence, then forward this email to your local Christian or conservative radio station. Ask them to broadcast it as a Public Service Announcement (PSA)! MP3 file or WAV file

Click here for Frequently Asked Questions about the Day of Silence.

In the past week alone, over 200 schools have announced they are dropping plans to participate. Please, get involved for the sake or your children, and all children, today!


Take Action!


What should parents do? Check with your local school principal to see if your child's school will be participating in DOS. If the school is participating, notify other parents about DOS and ask them to join in keeping their children out of school on that day.
Here is a partial list of schools which are expected to participate in DOS: If your school is listed, call your local school and ascertain whether they officially or passively allow students to observe "Day of Silence." If your school is listed, please double-check with your local school to see if the school is actually sponsoring DOS. Sometimes the "participation" turns out to be a handful of kids who are saying they have a homosexual club and are observing this protest day, but without school endorsement. We sincerely hope your school, if listed, is not actually an official sponsor. If it is not, we will take them off the list, if a school official asks us to do so. Please e-mail your correction to webmaster@missionamerica.com .

Some tips:

Be sure of the date that DOS is planned for your school. (The national date is April 25, but some schools observe DOS on a different date.)
Inform the school of your intention to keep your child home on that date and explain why. Click here for a sample letter.
Explain to your children why you're taking a stand: Homosexual behavior is not an innate identity; it is a sinful, unnatural and destructive behavior. No school should advance a physically, emotionally, and spiritually destructive sexual lifestyle to students.
Schools do not have to tolerate students remaining silent in class. Schools can adopt policies that require parental consent for students to attend any club, including those premised on sexual orientation or gender identity. Click here for more information from Attorney Mat Staver with Liberty Counsel who provides free information to parents, students, and schools regarding their rights associated with noncompliance on the Day of Silence.

Donald E. Wildmon, Founder and Chairman American Family Association

2. True Story
the easiest way to recruit new GLBTs is to be very very quiet for a whole day.

3. LOL! thank you
and then they get junior sized toaster ovens? My kids go to the local "gay" high school. A school chartered to be an academic home to students that felt threatened or bullied in the larger public school arena. :hi:

4. I think I can honestly say I hate these people
Mr. Wildmon and company, YOU are the abomination.

By preying on the ignorance and the sheeplike trust that your voting bloc has placed in you, you have brought us to where we are today.

The war would not have started--or it would have ended early--if we'd had Gore or Kerry as president.

9/11 might not have occurred if we'd had a president who actually listened to the intelligence.

We would not be known internationally as the torturers, the abusers of human rights.

Hundreds more might have survived after Katrina with a proper response.

The recession and coming depression would have been staved off if we'd had an economic policy that was even remotely pro-worker.

Mr. Wildmon and company, you have betrayed your country, by allowing its name to be dirtied and dragged through the mud and filth. You have betrayed your children by allowing the economy to be ruined and destroyed for them. And yes, you have betrayed families by electing people who killed husbands and wives, children and parents, in a war of greed, who allowed the corporations to take away their jobs and the banking industry to take away their home. This is what you have done in your quest to demonize human beings who are different from you.

I hope there is a divine power out there, and I hope S/He damns you for what you have brought about.

5. The irony is cutting.
As of 2007 the "speaking cards" read:

Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I am participating in the Day of Silence, a national youth movement protesting the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies in schools. My deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by harassment, prejudice, and discrimination. I believe that ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices. Think about the voices you are not hearing today. What are you going to do to end the silence?
------------------------

So, stay home and be silent to protest the silence protesting the silence faced by lgbt people and their allies? Or is that they are afraid if their kids aren't silent that others will think they are bigots?

6. My school is participating
at least passively. We aren't an offically recognized club but we are tolerated.

10. Does that mean that racists are secretly black and sexists secretly female?
I know this is a difficult concept, but perhaps he's just an asshole.

11. Straight people hate to be associated with anti-gay bigots because it makes them look bad.
It's very difficult for them to imagine that any straight people could be so hateful. That's why they think all the anti-gay bigots are secretly gay.
