K-12 Students to Participate in 'Day of Silence' in Support of LGBT Rights

Friday, April 27th has been designated as a Day of Silence (DOS). On this day, students who are gay, trans, and bisexual and their supporters will go through the entire school day without speaking in order to draw attention to the LGBT cause.

The Day of Silence website describes the event this way:

“GLSEN’s Day of Silence, this year on Friday, April 27, is a student-led national event where folks take a vow of silence to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ people at school.

To start, K-12 students and educators should register their participation.”

Some students will even go so far as to put tape over their mouths to prove their point.

Charisma News writer Janet Boynes, who used to be a lesbian herself before coming to the Lord, questions the wisdom of exposing children as young as kindergarten and preschool ages to the LGBT agenda.

“Our society has made a dangerous move in going from tolerance to celebration of LGBT—especially when kids are celebrating harmful sexual behaviors that can have life-threatening consequences,” writes Boynes.

Some Christian families are choosing to keep their children home from school on the Day of Silence, while others are using this as an occasion to talk to their children about this issue.

“Whether you keep your children home or allow them to go to school on the Day of Silence, be sure to let your voice be heard,” says Boynes.
