April 26 is the Day of Silence:
The Day of Silence, a project of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) in collaboration with the United States Student Association (USSA), is a student-led day of action where those who support making anti-LGBT bias unacceptable in schools take a day-long vow of silence to recognize and protest the discrimination and harassment -- in effect, the silencing -- experienced by LGBT students and their allies.
April 27 is the Day of Truth
This year marks the second year of the Day of Truth, which was established to counter the promotion of the homosexual agenda and express an opposing viewpoint from a Christian perspective.
Last year more than 1,100 students from over 350 schools participated and shared the Truth with their classmates. But there are so many more who need to hear the Truth, spoken in love.
Agape has more:
Students will be observing the Day of Truth on Thursday, April 27, by wearing T-shirts and passing out cards expressing an opposing viewpoint on homosexuality. ADF Senior Counsel Gary McCaleb says the event is "an opportunity for students to exercise their First Amendment rights in an appropriate way and get the message out about a Christian view of truth."
Students taking part in the pro-family event will be handing out cards that state: "I am speaking the truth to break the silence. Silence isn't freedom; it's a constraint. Truth tolerates open discussion, because the truth emerges when healthy discourse is allowed. By proclaiming the truth in love, hurts will be halted, hearts will be healed, and lives will be saved."
The Alliance Defense Fund has 800 attorneys lined up to represent any of the expected 2,000 participants. Polls show that younger people are less bigoted toward homosexuals. The ADF needs to turn that perception around by encouraging children to see the specks of sin in their classmates. There's nothing "pro-family" about that.
