YOUR 15 MINUTES: Why Some Christian Perspectives SUCK

Today marks the 10th national Day of Silence - an 8 hour silent protest sponsered by GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) that intends to "peacefully bring attention to the pervasive problem of anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) bullying and harassment in schools."

Students across the country that are participating will speak only through the use of speaking cards that echo the silence faced by LGBT students. At the end of the day, the schools will participate in Breaking the Silence rallies, to carry their message.

Of course, who could do without The Day of Truth, a youth movement made up of Christian students and "former homosexuals," that takes place tomorrow!! This day was "established to counter the promotion of the homosexual agenda and express an opposing viewpoint from a Christian perspective." They offer resources for those interested in participating... including a PDF entitled, "Homosexuality FAQ sheet" provided by Exodus International (a ministry promoting hate for many many years!!)

It's good to know that all these closeted homos have this much time on their hands... I mean seriously, they've managed to organize a whole fun-filled day to purge their gay feelings...

I still know they're all gay.

OMG you would DIE if you saw the controversy this caused by my parents' house. A high school club that focuses on diversity decided to honor this in their school. A bunch of redneck fundamentalists starting bashing the high school students who just don't want to be closed-minded hicks. Bible thumpers were calling into the newspaper...crazy. One guy showed up at a school board meeting reading passages from the Bible and talking about the dangers of homosexuality -- turned out he was a child molester. It was like a fucking circus. I’ve been following it for months.

When I was in High School we had a similar problem, only it was against a group that was trying to promote diversity. Anyway...the same rednecks decided it would be a good idea to wear white t-shirts (standing for white supremecy) for a day in protest. It caused like a ton of problems b/c the students were suspended and then their redneck parents were all pissed because they are the ones, in fact, who taught them to hate all other races. It was insane! This is why I am not moving back to northeast PA.
