"Day of Silence" is a Day of Dumbed-Down Sin

by Linda Harvey

If two middle school girls “date,” that’s normal – didn’t you know? Boys in girls’ restrooms, locker rooms and showers is also a “right” and anyone who objects is a racist.

“But bathroom privacy has nothing to do with race,” you logically reply.

And that’s when understanding dawns. The “LGBTQ” agenda that’s being sold to children via deviant, negligent, or cowardly schools is all about concocting  mindless myths. 

It’s pure propaganda with no basis in fact or logic, so why do it? Because it’s the avenue for fostering sexual permissiveness as a societal change agent using children as guinea pigs. Cooperative public schools are the sites of this corruption.

If we look at how the left behaves, there is no god in America today but sexual sin. And the “LGBTQ” movement is its prophet.

And so here comes the annual “Day of Silence” in public schools as one of the useful weapons in this war on children, which includes pronouns as a battlefield, schools secretly colluding with deeply disturbed children behind parents’ backs, and even teachers encouraging students to join private “gay” clubs on Instagram without parental knowledge.

This is what “social justice” looks like in some American schools. If you object, you are a “bully.” But like many of you, I am not buying it.

The“Day of Silence” in 2019 is on Friday, April 12 and it’s time, parents, to find out if and how it will be observed at your child’s school. If it is, you can count on a flood of propaganda selling “LGBT” identities to children in the pretense of preventing bullying. It’s an event created by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, GLSEN, which is a homosexual group, and the whole thing is a scam to promote homosexuality and gender confusion to impressionable children—the younger, the better.

Here's how the bullying story goes. We are told that people who claim a homosexual or opposite sex identity—which no one needs to do, so always keep that in mind—that these folks are relentlessly bullied, are perennial victims, and are being “silenced” everywhere.  

Are you laughing yet? Where and when have homosexuals and their allies been “silent” lately? If only!

Sure, some of these folks are bullied and that’s never acceptable. But exaggeration of the phony narrative continues. The DOS supporters will claim that all who object to these harmful behaviors are part of the bullying problem, which is quite a stretch relative to the actual facts. 

Any person can object to high-risk “LGBTQ” behavior but also, never bully anyone. And of course, faithful Christians believe the Word of God, and so we know this behavior is wrong and unnecessary. We are not designed for this conduct. So the Day of Silence is an event that, by definition, discriminates against Christians. Who are the real bullies here?

But this is the con job our schools try to pull on our kids and it needs to stop. That’s why a coalition of conservative parents and groups have organized the Day of Silence Walkout ( www.doswalkout.net).

We are suggesting that parents keep kids home that day and away from the false messages that don’t help anything. Our children will not benefit from lies combined with a flagrant misuse of instructional time. 

The “Day of Silence” is now essentially a campaign all year long in many schools, which makes the Walkout necessary.

And here’s another grave concern-- the Day of Silence does a real number on kids’ minds and hearts, and contributes to the “dumbing down” of American education.

Here’s how the DOS presents logical fallacies to students. The DOS and its “anti-bullying” platform weaves the following story:

1. Bullying is always wrong. ( Okay, this much is true).

2. Many if not most young people who identify as homosexual or “transgender” are bullied.

3. Therefore, to stop bullying, we must approve of homosexual or gender rebellious behavior.

You are scratching your head because you see the obvious problems in logic here. If a student with poor hygiene is bullied, does that mean, to show “support,” we stop teaching about the benefits of good grooming? Of brushing one’s teeth? Of regular bathing? 

Here’s what the DOS and its allies don’t want kids (and parents) to think about—the huge obvious question they have left unanswered, deliberately so. 

It's this--- Is homosexuality inborn? Can it ever change? Are some people born “in the wrong sex body”? And what about negative outcomes—are there any?

These essential questions are never addressed, leaving many students to assume that:

1. The adults in charge have done the research on this, and

2. We can trust them. They would not mislead us, and so

3. “LGBTQ” feelings and conduct must be inborn for some people.

It’s a huge con job with faulty implied assumptions, because no one is born to engage in homosexual/gender rebellious conduct. These are desires that develop long after birth, influenced by life circumstances, abuse, trauma, and personal attitudes. 

And those being bullied over this always have at least one clear choice: stop identifying as "LGBTQ." And don't tell us you have no choice. You always have a choice. That's the very good news-- those desires and behavior can change. We know lots of people who have done so.

It’s time to call a halt to this nonsense in our schools!! It's hurting kids, hurting Christians.

Will you join the national effort by opposing the GLSEN “Day of Silence” at your school?

Let’s protect kids and stand together against normalizing sexual deviance.
