‘Day of Truth’ to counter pro-homosexual protest in schools

.- A Day of Truth is being organized tomorrow to counter today’s pro-homosexual Day of Silence, held in some high schools. On the Day of Truth, promoted by the Alliance Defense Fund, students are asked to wear T-shirts and pass out cards outside of class time that read:

“I am speaking the Truth to break the silence. I believe in equal treatment for all, and not special rights for a few. I believe in loving my neighbor, but part of that love means not condoning detrimental personal and social behavior. I believe that by boldly proclaiming the Truth, hurts will be halted, hearts will be healed, and lives will be saved.”

The Day of Silence today was organized by the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). According to Finn Laursen, executive director of Christian Educators Association International, GLSEN urged students to disrupt the schooling process with "a visible silence, a silence during which participants protest anti-LGBT discrimination and abuse."

GLSEN says lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students are discriminated against and abused in schools everywhere.

Laursen says he has spent his entire adult life as a public school educator, and has never witnessed such discriminatory behavior.

"This is the gay rights movement manipulating our children, who are a captive audience in public schools," he said in a statement.

Laursen suggested that teachers ignore protesters and continue with regular classroom acitivites. Students who are insubordinate or distruptive should face the same consequences as any other student exhibiting negative behavior, he said.
