Dueling Pro- and Anti-Gay Days

--posted by Tony Garcia on 4/12/2005

Here is the story, you make your own decision on which to support.

Though, I have to say that Kevin Jennings, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network executive director, is a little blinded by his own prejudice. He claims that
"The Day of Truth is a publicity stunt cooked up by a conservative organization with a political agenda; it's an effort by adults to manipulate some kids."
Not that encouraging protests by students for education funding, social services, gay extra rights, global warming, etc. is NOT manipulating kids.

Not that the constant barrage of lies from faculty in both K-12 or at the University level is NOT manipulating kids.

I have to agree with Mike Johnson, attorney (gasp) for Alliance Defense Fund, who identifies the true cause of The Day of Silence
"No one is for bullying and harassment," Johnson said. "But that's cloaking their real message — that homosexuality is good for society."
The fact is that it is not acceptable to voice any disagreement with homosexuality in the schools.
Echoing the stance taken by defense fund lawyers in several court cases, Johnson said teachers and students critical of homosexuality have been pressured to stifle their views while at school. They cite the case of a San Diego-area high school student, Chase Harper, who was disciplined last year for refusing to change out of a T-shirt that read, "Homosexuality is Shameful."
This is just as valid of a belief system rhetorically speaking as the "gay is great" crowd. Personally I do not think either viewpoint should be allowed in the K-12 setting. But, as Johnson points out
"We wouldn't have come up with the Day of Truth if Christian kids hadn't been silenced in the first place. The public school is part of the free market of ideas — if the other side is going to advance their point of view, it's only fair for the Christian perspective to present their view, too."
Again, you make your own decision on which side to support.
