More Social Justice Activism In Our Schools: Day of Silence

On April 15th, GLSEN will be holding their annual Day of Silence.  This event is supposed to target youth and take place in our schools.

GLSEN is using this video, featuring proponent Linda Harvey of Mission America, to promote the event to take place in our schools.

Again, we see more political and Social Justice activism  being promulgated in our schools whether we like it or not.

You will be made to care. Silently. In a school running on your taxpayer dollars.

Imagine if a Christian group wanted to hold a Day of Rejoicing.

Parents don’t have to put up with with a social justice agenda being shoved down their kids throats. They can participate instead in the Day of Silence Walk Out by keeping their kids home on April 15th.  More details here.

Parents then can have a conversation with their kids that day, instead of them bearing witness to the theatrics of the outrage industry.

An recent Op Ed (below) by Linda Wall, the President of Virginia Mass Resistance, takes on this year’s Day of Silence. While I don’t necessarily go along with the religious tone to it, I most definitely agree with being inappropriate and interrupting instruction in our schools.

The Day of Silence: “We’re Coming After Your Children”

In 1992 the chant coming from those in the Washington Gay Pride Parade was, “We’re queer, we’re here, and we’re coming after your children.” It only took four years for that threat to begin manifesting. In 1996 students at the University of Virginia organized the first Day of Silence and now it takes place annually in the public schools of America. It is coming to a school near you on Friday, April 15th.

Students are urged to refuse to speak all day, including during academic classes, which is disruptive to instructional time. Administrators permit students to refuse to speak in class, and teachers feel compelled to create lesson plans to accommodate student-refusal to speak. Teachers feel that if they don’t accommodate student-refusal to speak, they will be seen as supporting the bullying of self-identified homosexual students.

Think not that the Day of Silence is the only promotion of homosexuality and transgenderism occurring in the schools. It was several years after I was set free from homosexuality that I discovered the pushers of sexual perversion had made it into the public schools under the disguise of “diversity”. Imagine how horrified I was in 2000 to see that AT&T had sent pro-homosexual lesson plans to every middle school of America! These lesson plans presented the politically correct view of homosexuality.

As someone who had been in homosexual behavior for almost ten years and was no longer a part of that sinful behavior, my heart went out to the unsuspecting children who were mentally being raped by this effort to normalize a behavior that the three major religions of the world call abominable.

Let’s look at this through Heaven’s eyes. Jesus made it very clear how He felt about harming the children when He said if one harmed one of the little ones who believed in Him, it would be better for them for a millstone to be tied around their neck and thrown in the river.

What must Jesus think about this Day of Silence occurring in the schools? What must He think about Christian parents who send their children to school on that day? What must He think about Christian school teachers who attend school on that day?

Each year there is a counter event occurring on The Day of Silence called Day of Silence Walkout. Visit for instructions on how to refuse to be a part of the pro-homosexual-transgender day on April 15th.

Each week from now until April 15, I will address The Day of Silence and the pro-homosexual/transgender indoctrination going on in the schools that you and I are funding with our tax dollars and what you can do to save the children.

    Ms. Dillon, you are woefully misinformed. While GLSEN organizes the national day of silence, it is student clubs at each school that promote the local observances. School administration does not sponsor or endorse it. Since public schools are run by the government, they can’t censor the speech of either individual students or student clubs. Of course a Christian club can hold a Day of Rejoicing…that’s the whole idea! Parents can pout and keep their kids at home, or students who disagree with the Day of Silence can hold a counterdemonstration at the same time. Great thing about student free speech rights is that all students have them. You should be celebrating that and educating conservative student groups instead of blaming school administrators for student expression.
