I called up a high school on the southwest side of Chicago that is honoring the day by allowing gay students to remain silent during classes, even to the point of getting out of class assignment if they wish. When I approached the school to talk to a school administrator, I asked the question that all students and parents should ask the school before permitting this day, “Has your school had any public reports of physical abuse or bullying from any proclaimed homosexual student this year?” The school administrator said no but they were still going to allow Day of Silence.
Schools should not observe a day regarding abuses that never happened. The idea of “tolerance” is so highly valued in society today that I doubt many schools have had reports of problems with students regarding homosexuality. The schools are being used to promote an agenda that does not even exist in the schools. As parents, we are allowed to know what goes on in our schools. Our schools are satellite homes for our kids. We have to make sure that our kids are not being used to promote a homosexual organization outside the school.
The Christian philosophy is still the best. Christians are supposed to embody the love of Christ and follow the law of the Ten Commandments. Christ came not to abolish the law but to fulfill the law. A person can choose risky, unhealthy homosexual behavior if they want to, but that doesn’t mean our public schools should be allowed to promote it to our children.
