Ironically, pro-family groups and conservative students actually welcomed the voluntary "gay" silence as a respite from homosexual and "transgender" advocacy in schools.
"Gay activists have used schools as a recruiting ground for far too long," says Culture and Family Institute (CFI) senior policy analyst Peter LaBarbera. "If only they had been silent earlier, our children might have been spared exposure to discussions of abnormal sex and unnatural identities in the classroom."
According to LaBarbera, "From brainwashing impressionable elementary school kids to promoting sexual perversion and gender confusion to teenagers, this is an agenda that puts children in danger. Hopefully, this Day of Silence will wake Americans up to the organized homosexual threat in our schools."
