April 16–The annual “Day of Silence,” sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian,
Straight Education Network (GLSEN), will be promoted tomorrow in
many public schools. This event encourages students to remain
silent, by not texting or responding to anyone, including teachers,
administrators, or students at school. GLSEN claims the event
counteracts bullying, but it is merely promoting an
anti-heterosexual viewpoint. Schools can teach students the value of
respect without accepting GLSEN’s propaganda event. Many states,
like Florida, for example, have laws that require abstinence-based
education when sexuality is discussed, so the school cannot
recognize the Day of Silence without promoting abstinence.

purity. Liberty Counsel has a legal memorandum explaining how to
protect schools from being hijacked by GLSEN’s political agenda.
Student conduct causing a substantial disruption or material
interference with school activities is not protected under the First
Amendment. If a teacher asks a student a question during class, the
student does not have a right to remain silent.

Please pray that students will be protected from forced
indoctrination by GLSEN, especially next week, and that the
truth will prevail.

are permitted to distribute literature promoting the Day of
