What do I do when my child's school sponsors an event that promotes homosexuality?
What would you do if your child's school featured an event like the Day of Silence, which is sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)? The annual event encourages students to protest the "silence" faced by "lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies" [LBGT] by not speaking throughout a specific school day – and it is celebrated in thousands of schools across the country. If your child's school is one of those, what can you do?
What you should know
Events like the Day of Silence are often marketed as just being about bullying prevention, but if you look beneath the surface, much more radical agendas are being promoted, such as "queer-friendly prom," and getting LBGT-themed materials into your child's classroom.
But the good news is that when spiritual darkness increases, the light of the Gospel and God's love shines even brighter – and Focus on the Family sponsors a day for students nationwide, the Day of Dialogue™, which provides students a chance to respond to the controversial and confusing sexual messages that are often being promoted in their public schools.
