April 20th is this year’s Day of Silence, when students all over the country will go silent for the day in protest of the intimidation and harassment of themselves and their gay friends. And the Family Research Council, along with other bigots, want to ban the event. Tony Perkins had a Connecticut pastor on his show who is trying to get a local school board to forbid students from participating in the event and he endorsed the idea:
Loomer: If the board decides they don’t want to take any corrective actions we’re already making plans to call the city families together and just apprise them of the situation. I think the parents will be so appalled at what the Day of Silence could lead their children into that they’re going to want to stand up and say, ‘let’s get rid of this.’ There are alternative programs that focus on disrupting the bullying that goes on in schools but this is one that’s got a serious kickback to it.
Perkins: Look, bullying should not be taking place in our schools, every child in America should be able to go to school—public school, private school, wherever—without the fear of threat or being intimidated, regardless of what the cause is, whether they’re overweight, whether their religious viewpoints, no child should be bullied because they are effeminate or because of their sexual orientation or whatever, it shouldn’t happen, but we cannot allow these programs like the Day of Silence to come into our schools as a cover for the promotion of homosexuality. That’s what is happening with this so we appreciate Pastor Loomer and others who are drawing attention to this in communities across the country.
Silly rabbit, free speech is for Christian bigots only.
