A POSITIVE APPROACH TO HOMOSEXUALITY IN SCHOOLS
Today is “Day of Silence” in public schools, when students are told to remain mute all day in school to protest so-called “harassment” of homosexuals. It’s disruptive and disrespectful to teachers, administrators and other students, but oh, well. The event is sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, which claims 20 chapters in Nebraska schools, half of them in the Omaha metropolitan area (www.glsenomaha.org).
A more positive counter-demonstration is being planned for Thursday through the Alliance Defense Fund. Called the “Day of Truth,” students are being asked to wear a T-shirt with the message that truth cannot be silenced, with materials available for distribution that contradict the pro-homosexual message of the day before. (See www.alliancedefensefund.org)
The message on cards that can be handed out that day (not in class, however) reads:
“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.”
Also today and Thursday, homosexuality promotion in schools takes center stage as the Georgia State Board of Education considers a proposal that really ought to be policy in Nebraska schools. It would require high-school students to obtain written parental permission before joining pro-homosexual clubs at school.
Makes sense: they crawl all over the kids if they so much as try to take an aspirin without a notarized affidavit. Descending into homosexuality can REALLY hurt you, so being in a gay booster club is something on which parents and guardians should have say-so.
If approved, the rule would be implemented in high schools throughout Georgia in September.
