Christian Groups Announce Annual Day Of Support For Anti-Gay Bullying

As they did last year, a massive coalition of Christian groups has announced their intention to have their children walk out of any public school participating in next month's Day Of Silence, a GLSEN-sponsored event meant to educate kids that it's wrong to beat up gay students. From the Day Of Silence Walkout site:
The explicit purpose of DOS is to encourage sympathy and support for students involved in homosexual and cross-dressing behaviors whose voices have been allegedly silenced by the disapproval of society. The implicit purpose is to undermine the belief that homosexuality and cross-dressing is immoral. Parents should no longer passively countenance the political usurpation of public school classrooms through student silence. Parents should call their children’s middle schools and high schools to ask whether the administration and/or teachers will be permitting students to remain silent during class on the Day of Silence. If students will be permitted to remain silent, parents can express their opposition most effectively by calling their children out of school on the Day of Silence and sending letters of explanation to their administrators, their children’s teachers, and all school board members. One reason this is effective is that most school districts lose money for each student absence.
Christian groups supporting the beating, taunting, and terrorizing of gay kids includes the American Family Association, Concerned Women for America, Americans For Truth (Peter LaBarbera), Liberty Counsel, MassResistance, Mission America, Faith2Action, the Culture Campaign, PFOX, the Illinois Family Institute, and many more.
