Christian, Conservative Groups Counter Pro-Homosexual “Day of Silence”

 As it has over the past 15 years, the aggressively pro-homosexual Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) rolled out its self-serving Day of Silence, supposedly meant to protest the oppression and “bullying” GLSEN insists “gay” young people face. By remaining silent the entire day, explained GLSEN’s director Eliza Byard, students in high schools across the nation are “calling attention to the silencing effects of anti-LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender] bullying, discrimination, and harassment present in too many schools across the country.”

But a coalition of conservative, Christian, and pro-family groups contend that the “Day of Silence” is little more than a tool of radical homosexuals to engage teens in “gay” advocacy — and to recruit some of the more vulnerable ones into the destructive lifestyle along the way. One of those groups, Mission America, encouraged parents to keep their kids home from school on that day.

“GLSEN’s Day of Silence, which began on college campuses and has now infiltrated even middle schools, exploits anti-bullying sentiment to undermine the belief that homosexual acts are immoral,” explained Linda Harvey, Mission America’s founder and president. “GLSEN shamelessly exploits teen suicide in order to create a climate of hysteria which they then use to falsely impute culpability for teen suicide to conservative moral beliefs.”

Harvey, who has studied and monitored the homosexual activist network for years, said the goal of GLSEN and other “gay” groups is to change the nation’s social and political climate so that it becomes virtually impossible for those embracing conservative and Christian values to express their views. “The cultural vehicle of choice for this radical social experiment is public education,” Harvey said. “What a strategic coup for homosexualists: use our money to capture the hearts and minds of our children.”
