In honor of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s Day of Silence today – an annual event meant to draw attention to the “silencing effects” of anti-gay harassment and name-calling in schools – Right Wing Watch is re-releasing a collection of some of the most troubling recent claims from the Religious Right about safe schools initiatives. Relying on harmful myths depicting LGBT people as abusive and “perverse,” it is clear from these examples that the Religious Right is far more interested in pushing homophobic lies than in protecting and...

Mission America’s Linda Harvey keeps pressing on in her war against the Day of Silence and used her daily radio bulletin today to warn that the event will encourage students to “take on” a “high-risk life that dishonors God.” Harvey told listeners to pull their kids from school on that day to avoid exposure to the protest against anti-LGBT bullying, warning that children will otherwise have to encounter “pro-homosexual propaganda” and face other students “recruiting” them. Because of alarming and deceptive messages surrounding... MORE

Conservative groups including the American Family Association, Concerned Women for America and Liberty Counsel are urging parents to keep their children at home on April 11, the annual anti-bullying Day of Silence, in order to avoid exposing them to protests against anti-LGBT bullying. Mission America’s Linda Harvey and Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute, an AFA affiliate, discussed the boycott plans on Harvey’s weekend radio show, where Harvey claimed that the Day of Silence actually represents “medical malpractice.” “This is educational malpractice...

Writing today in BarbWire, Mission America head Linda Harvey claims that LGBT rights groups and “vicious homosexual bloggers” are the real bullies, while Christian students are increasingly the victims of “troubled ‘gay’ adolescents whose destructive actions went unpunished.” Instead of disciplining these gay bullies, Harvey says, schools are instead embracing bullying prevention programs from the “gay-stapo” who are “corrupting children with misinformation and hyperbole about bullying, all laced with explicit ‘gay’ sexual...

Anti-gay activist and self-proclaimed exorcist Gordon Klingenschmitt, who last week endorsed Russia’s “homosexual propaganda” law, sent out an email to members of his Pray In Jesus Name Project today with yet another insane screed attacking the Student Non-Discrimination Act. After falsely claiming that Russia is merely “banning pedophilia,” Klingenschmitt said the anti-bullying student Non-Discrimination Act, sponsored by Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), should be called the “‘No Child Left Unmolested’ amendment.” He charged that the bill is... MORE

On her radio show today, Linda Harvey said that the real problem facing students today isn’t bullying, but anti-bullying programs that are “selling gay behavior.” Harvey cautioned parents to keep an eye out for the efforts of the anti-bullying group GLSEN, which she said will be using pledge cards, posters, t-shirts, signs, and all kinds of merchandise as part of a “re-education” plan to “pressure” students during Ally Week. “It’s not appropriate for schools to allow this since, once again, it’s a backdoor way to get people to give...

Minnesota-based Religious Right activist/rock star Bradlee Dean went ballistic on his radio show yesterday in response to his state’s new marriage equality law. Dean warned that Gov. Mark Dayton, who signed the same-sex marriage bill into law, is at “war with God” and is “about to find out what it’s like as to what the fallout is when you throw rocks towards God, he’s going to learn how gravity works.” He added that Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who backed his state’s marriage equality law, and other pro-gay rights “criminals... MORE
