Tomorrow is the Day of Silence, an annual event that takes place in schools across the country to draw attention to anti-LGBTQ bullying, and Religious Right activist Linda Harvey of Mission America is urging parents to keep their children home from school during the event to protest what she sees as anti-Christian discrimination.
“You can count on a flood of propaganda selling LGBT identities to our children in the pretense of preventing bullying,” Harvey said on her radio commentary today. “You know how the bullying story goes: We are told that people who claim a homosexual or opposite sex identity—which no one needs to do, so always keep that in mind—that these folks are relentlessly bullied and all who object to these harmful behaviors are part of the bullying problem, which is a huge distortion.”
“Faithful Christians will believe the word of God and so we know this behavior is always wrong,” she added. “So the Day of Silence is an event that, by definition, discriminates against Christians.”
