Civil disobedience – a proper response to pro-LGBT school event

EXIT sign (green)Public school students across the country are about to be confronted once again with a yearly event that promotes the homosexual ideology of the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network.

Under the false assumption that homosexual and transgender students are routinely bullied, GLSEN – for the 23rd year – is calling for students to protest by remaining silent in school on April 12, which is dubbed "Day of Silence." The GLSEN website describes the observance as "a national movement to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ students in school …"

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute says, in reality it's Christian students who are being bullied. "When you teach kids from young ages that theologically orthodox Christian beliefs are the very source of hatred and violence, you are the one doing destruction," she tells OneNewsNow.

Having become prominent in high schools, Day of Silence is now increasingly moving into middle schools, according to Higgins, who advises Christians to practice some civil disobedience.

"… The act of civil disobedience that we're advocating – and this is a coalition of pro-family groups from across the country – is that parents will do this one really easy thing: keep your kids home from school on Day of Silence," she offers. "They don't need to be present for more indoctrination."

Even though Higgins' suggestion is technically not a "walkout," she says those who want to know more can go to DOSWalkout.net.

In years past, a Christian response to Day of Silence has been "Day of Dialogue," a campaign sponsored by Focus on the Family and Alliance Defending Freedom.
