Keep your child from being sexually indoctrinated

Pull your kids from this ‘LGBT’ indoctrination stunt at government schools

 


About ‘Day of Silence’

The so-called annual “Day of Silence” (DOS), which is sponsored by the “Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network” (GLSEN), takes place in most public schools every AprilThe next will be on or around Friday, April 11, 2014.

On this day, students participating in the “Day of Silence” will wear pro-homosexuality T-shirts, buttons, and stickers, refuse to answer teachers’ questions in classrooms, make it difficult for other students to concentrate, and generally take over school campuses for the entire day.

Thousands of government high schools and increasing numbers of junior high and middle schools are allowing this propaganda throughout an entire day — even during instructional time. The purpose of the silent civil disobedience is to promote homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality to other students throughout the entire day.


Just WALK OUT in April

Don’t let the homosexual-bisexual-transsexualists indoctrinate your child or any other children.

Join the WALK OUT by keeping your elementary, junior high and high school children home on the day the school is permitting students to silently protest.

Why WALK OUT of the LGBT “Day of Silence

1. Prevent “Day of Silence” in your community: Threatening to walk out will discourage some school administrators from allowing students to remain silent in class. They don’t want to lose money (they’ll lose nearly $100 in Average Daily Attendance funds each day your child is not at school).

2. Protect your children from homosexual-bisexual-transsexual indoctrination: If the government-run high school or junior high school in your community is permitting students to remain silent during class on April 20 or any other day, join the parent boycott to at least protect your own children from being sexually brainwashed. Too many parents have been shocked by their public-school children coming home believing that opposition to homosexual “marriages” or cross-dressing is “bigoted” and “discriminatory.”

3. Punish the government schools for sexually indoctrinating children: More than anything, public schools care about money. Encouraging as many parents as possible to keep their children home in protest on whatever day silence is permitted will hit the education establishment where it hurts. They need this pain to teach them to stop sexually brainwashing children.

4. Give parents an opportunity to experience homeschooling for a day: The truth is, every California government school must now follow the law that indirectly requires them to positively promote homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality. See the existing school indoctrination laws. This is why SaveCalifornia.com strongly urges parents to home-school or church-school their children. Participating in the one-day “Day of Silence WALK OUT” will let you experience the joys and freedoms of homeschooling for at least a day. We encourage you to make it a goal to give your child the best character training possible through alternative education. Please visit our special websiteRescueYourChild.com.


OPTIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR PARENTS:

1. Consider calling your local public school administrators.
First, a caution. It’s probably not worth calling your school to find out if “Day of Silence” is happening. School administrators have been notoriously deceptive in their answers about this. They will deny supporting or sponsoring “Day of Silence,” yet will allow students to remain silent nonetheless. Just know that keeping your child home will appropriately punish the anti-family public schools that permit “Day of Silence” by denying them nearly $100 in Average Daily Attendance (ADA) funds.

But if you do call them, ask whether they permit students or teachers to remain silent in the classroom on “Day of Silence.” IMPORTANT: Do NOT ask any administrator, school board member or teacher if the school sponsors, endorses, or supports DOS.Schools do not technically sponsor the Day of Silence. Technically, it is students, often students in the “gay-straight alliance” group, who sponsor it. Many administrators will tell you that they do not sponsor the DOS when, in fact, they DO permit students and sometimes even teachers to remain silent during instructional time. Also ask administrators whether they permit teachers to create lesson plans to accommodate student silence. If they do, this is supportive of the disruptive, pro-homosexuality Day of Silence.

2. Email your children’s teachers.
If you contact you child’s teacher, ask whether they will be permitting students to remain silent in class on DOS and whether they will be creating lesson plans to accommodate student silence. Sometimes there is a disconnect between what administrators or school board members believe is taking place in classrooms and what actually takes place.

3. Check the DOS date.
Be sure to find out what date the event is planned for your school. (The national date in 2014 is April 11, but some schools observe DOS on a different date).

4. Notify your school.
Inform the school of your intention to keep your children home on that date and explain why. (A sample letter is available below.)


OPTIONAL SAMPLE LETTER FOR YOUR SCHOOL
If you confirm that the school or teachers will allow students to stay silent (whether or not they call it Day of Silence, copy and paste this sample letter into your word processing program and customize. We suggest first copying into Notepad, then copying from Notepad into Word or a similar program.

(Date)

Dear _______________,

Due to the administration’s decision to allow the politicization of the learning environment through the Day of Silence, which is sponsored by the highly partisan Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network, we feel compelled to call our child/children out of school on that day.

The administration errs when it allows the classroom to be disrupted and politicized by granting students permission to remain silent throughout an entire day. The protesters have a captive audience, many of whom disagree with and are made uncomfortable by the politicization of their classroom. How many political protests will the school allow, and who decides which political issue will be permitted to disrupt the educational process?

Day of Silence participants have a First Amendment right to wear t-shirts, and if other extracurricular clubs put up posters and set up tables from which to distribute materials, “gay-straight alliances” have that right also. The Day of Silence participants go further, however, by exploiting the instructional time of every student in every class for an entire day in the service of their philosophical beliefs and partisan political purposes. Their silence, and in some cases, the silence of their teachers, transform the activities of the day.

By allowing students to remain silent, administrations fail to protect the classroom from intrusive, political exploitation. My child/children will not be part of this political appropriation of the classroom.

Sincerely,

(Your name and signature)


 

‘GAY’ POLITICS IN CLASS? NOT WITH MY KIDS!

Parents fight back against ‘Day of Silence’ promotion during school

A massive campaign to keep tens of thousands students home from school when the “gay”-promoting Day of Silence is held Friday is gearing up again this year.

“Just walk out,” advises Save California, one of many organizations offering parents a way to respond to the politicization of public school classrooms.

The “Day of Silence” is organized for public schools by the private activist group Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. The group purports to call attention to the plight of homosexuals by having students, teachers, school administrators and others remain silent for a day of public school.

However, critics charge the activity disrupts the learning process on that day. Advocates for the traditional view of sexuality oppose it, recommending that students stay home or distribute brochures with the truth about homosexuality during that time.

The “Day of Silence” Walkout website urges parents to contact the principals of their children’s middle or high school and ask this question: “Do you permit students to refuse to speak during class on the Day of Silence?”

If the principal says students will be permitted to refuse to speak in class, the group urges parents to keep their children home that day.

“You might also inform your principal that teachers have a legal right to require students to speak in class and that students have no legal right to refuse to speak if called on to answer a question, give a speech, or participate in a debate, group project, or other activity,” the website says.

Parents are advised they can keep their children home and “do not have to sit by and passively accept this political action in the class.”

The boycotters contend the ultimate goal of GLSEN and promoters of the Day of Silence “is to eradicate conservative moral beliefs.”

“And they are using public schools to achieve that end, thus transforming education into indoctrination.”

The coalition against the Day of Silence includes Abiding Truth Ministries, American Family Association, AFA Michigan, AFA Pennsylvania, Americans for Truth, Capitol Resource Institute, Citizens for Community Values, Coalition of Conscience, Community Issues Council, CWA of Florida, CWA of Hawaii, CWA of Ohio, CWA of Texas South, CWA of Illinois, CWA of Washington, Don Feder Associations, Faith2Action, Faith, Family & Freedom Alliance, Good News Communications, Illinois Family Institute, Informing Christians, Jimmy Z Show, Liberty Counsel, MassResistance, Matt Abbott, Mission: America, Montana Family Association, Sandy Rios and Save California.

Save California offers parents the flyer promoting the boycott.

“Parents, take charge,” it says. “Keep your child HOME from public school Friday, April 11, 2014.

“You don’t have to put up with the ‘Day of Silence’ stunt. Exercise your right to keep your child home,” the brochure explains.

Save California said school districts “that allow this immoral-agenda ‘silence’ need to be rebuked by loss of Average Daily Attendance (ADA) funds.”

“Consider that this pro-perversity ‘silence’ is in addition to the 10 sexual indoctrination laws already on the California books.”

The Illinois Family Institute says it’s “naïve” to think “public schools value diversity, honor all voices, foster critical thinking, and remain neutral on controversial social issues.”

“Many parents have no idea the extent to which pro-homosexuality propaganda pervades our schools,” the group said. “Keep their children home on the Day of Silence is an easy, safe way for parents to express to school administrations.”

A commentary from Illinois Family Institute said: “Here’s something else parents don’t know: Many teachers – including even some on the political left – dislike the Day of Silence because it disrupts the school day and requires them to create or revise plans to accommodate student silence.”

The nonprofit group Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays suggest that students and parents hand out flyers that explain that homosexuals need to respect others’ perspectives, too.

“Homosexual activists and their supporters use this day to promote anti-heterosexual and ex-gay misinformation,” said Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX. “They cite false medical and mental health information that endangers our youth by downplaying or ignoring serious risks. Meanwhile, students who support homosexual behavior volunteer to remain silent. GLSEN includes ‘straight’ in its title to refer only to heterosexuals who affirm homosexual behavior.”

Griggs said that since “members of gay-affirming clubs agree to remain silent for the day, April 11 is the ideal time to distribute ex-gay information in the true spirit of tolerance as supporters seek respect and affirmation for ex-gays.”

“PFOX is calling on students, parents and educators across our nation to distribute flyers promoting acceptance of the ex-gay community and the full facts about sexual orientation.”

She said the campaign urges tolerance for all.

“Equality exists when ex-gay organizations have equal access to students. Right now, homosexual groups have a virtual monopoly in schools to press their viewpoint on sexual orientation. Students deserve to hear the truth about ex-gays and the real hope for change for those who want it.”

A recommended letter for parents to let school officials know about their concerns states: “Day of Silence participants have a First Amendment right to wear T-shirts, and if other extracurricular clubs put up posters and set up tables from which to distribute materials, ‘gay-straight alliances’ have that right also. The Day of Silence participants go further, however, by exploiting the instructional time of every student in every class for an entire day in the service of their philosophical beliefs and partisan political purposes. Their silence, and in some cases, the silence of their teachers, transform the activities of the day.”
