On Friday, April 17, thousands of public school students will be drawn into and participating in GLSEN’S (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) annual “Day of Silence.” That’s when students who have been duped by the lies of those promoting the homosexual agenda will take a vow of silence, wear armbands proclaiming their solidarity with the activists and distribute cards explaining their silence. Students are told that this is about bringing awareness to the “anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment” that they allege takes place in schools.
It’s about promoting homosexuality and the homosexual agenda. If you read the materials put out by GLSEN, the Gay Straight Alliances and other groups that are “championing” homosexuality in our schools, you quickly get the picture. Oh, they couch virtually everything in terms of safety; but as you look more closely you realize everything is really about making homosexual behavior seem normal and natural—and often even preferred over heterosexual behavior.
WFC president Julaine Appling says, “The Day of Silence isn’t just “out there somewhere.” It’s right here in Wisconsin. With 85% of school aged children attending Wisconsin public schools, we know there are thousands of Christian kids who will be facing this tomorrow. We urge parents to prepare their children to deal with not just Day of Silence but with the issue of homosexuality in general.”
