Funded by our tax dollars, every year the National Education Association promotes what most Christians consider sinful behavior in government-run schools across the country. This year, the Day of Silence (DOS) will be Friday, April 11. Under the guise of “Anti-bullying,” thousands of public schools allow students to participate by remaining silent throughout an entire day even during instructional time. The DOS is sponsored by GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network), and is a political action in public schools that promotes the homosexual movement. Some suggest you keep your children home on that day.
Flashback to May 23, 2011, when the resignation of [Obama appointee] Kevin Jennings was completely ignored by the media. Jennings was the “Safe Schools Czar” for the Obama administration, and after I read what he promoted in public schools, it almost made me sick to my stomach.
Jennings was the founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), and one look at GLSEN’s recommended reading list should cause alarm. There are books encouraging the sexualization of children regardless of “orientation” and a sexed-up reading list for teachers on down to grade schoolers. Kevin Jennings had been known to encourage sex between adults and minors. CNS News reported:
In April, he spoke at an assembly at a public school in Maryland where he compared those who oppose homosexuality to supporters of slavery and racial segregation.
During his fourteen-year tenure at GLSEN, Jennings touted his homosexual activism and included the fact that since 1995, he increased the number of public school-based and student-led pro-homosexual clubs, such as Gay-Straight Alliances, from 50 to 4,300 today. Did you get that number? With the NEA’s cooperation, Jennings was responsible for adding more than 4,200 new clubs in public schools that promote homosexuality.
GLSEN’s goal for the Day Of Silence is to encourage sympathy and support for not only homosexual and lesbian students but also those involved in cross-dressing behaviors. Behind the veil, DOS is not led by students at all.
Linda Harvey of Mission America writes:
GLSEN describes itself as ‘championing LGBT issues in K-12 education since 1990.’ Did you catch that – ‘K through 12’? Younger and younger students are the target of this group. The younger, the better because they are easier to manipulate.
