Avoid being bullied, walk out of schools

EXIT sign (green)A Christian columnist and commentator says Friday's student protests supposedly against bullying are, in fact, themselves bullying students who oppose the homosexual lifestyle.

Linda Harvey of Mission: America says "Day of Silence" – a nationwide public school observance taking place on Friday – is a propaganda technique used by adult homosexual activists and gay student clubs. While DOS proponents speak out against bullying, at the same time, says Harvey, they bully conservative and Christian students opposed to both student harassment as well as homosexuality.

"These are two unrelated concepts," she tells OneNewsNow. "You can oppose homosexuality and oppose bullying – there's nothing inconsistent about that, and that is the Christian position essentially. We don't want anyone to be harmed ... and one of the ways they are being harmed is through homosexual and transgender behavior."

Rather than being caught up in the frenzy of the facade about bullying, Harvey suggests parents consider keeping their children home that day.

Harvey, Linda (Mission: America)"... However they have to do it, [parents should] check around and find out how extensive the Day of Silence will be at your school and then keep your children home that day," she adds.

For those who want to express their opposition to what she calls "the hijacking of government schools for the pernicious purposes of homosexual activism," Harvey's group offers the Day of Silence Walkout. She cites several school trends that make the walkout necessary, among them:

  • Gender-confused students being allowed to share restrooms with students of the opposite sex – even in elementary schools;
  • Female students being permitted to run for prom king, and male students being permitted to be prom queens;
  • Elementary schools marching in "gay pride" parades – and making available in their libraries picture books that depict homosexuality in a positive light; and
  • Schools hosting dances for homosexual students; and presenting "gay"-themed stage productions (e.g., The Laramie Project) and movies (e.g., Brokeback Mountain).
