Friday is the "Day of Silence" -- an annual event organized by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, encouraging students to remain silent all day at school to call attention to verbal physical abuse of homosexuals. However, pro-family organizations believe it's being used to indoctrinate kids and force a pro-homosexual agenda in schools. . . .
[I]n California, where students are already inundated with a pro-homosexual message, family advocacy groups are saying enough is enough. Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, is joining several family organizations across the country in urging parents to keep their children out of school on Friday.
"There are a handful of laws in California that already directly or indirectly promote these lifestyles to children, and this is just the tip of the iceberg," states Thomasson. "So the walkout is waking parents up who otherwise really were asleep on this issue."
According to Thomasson, "Every child that stays home on Friday in protest will take almost $100, in California at least, from the government school system in the form of ADA -- average daily attendance funds. . . . We think that's appropriate punishment for a school district that allows homosexual indoctrination of children."
