The Day of Silence

Christian Conservatives joining together to take back America for God

A message to all Patriots of Conservative Moms for America

The Day of Silence, which is sponsored by the Gay,

Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), fast approaches.

This year it will take place in most public schools on April 16.

On this day, thousands of public high schools and increasing numbers

of middle schools will allow students to remain silent throughout an

entire day-even during instructional time-to promote GLSEN's

socio-political goals and its controversial, unproven,

and destructive theories on the nature and morality of homosexuality.

Parents must actively oppose this hijacking of the

classroom for political purposes.

Please join the national effort to restore to public education a

proper understanding of the role of government-subsidized schools.

You can help de-politicize the learning environment by calling

your child out of school if your child's school allows students

to remain silent during instructional time on the Day of Silence.

Parents should no longer passively countenance the political

usurpation of public school classroomsthrough student silence.

If students will be permitted to remain silent, parents can

express their opposition most effectively by calling

their children out of school on the Day of Silence and sending

letters of explanation to their administrators,

their children's teachers, and all school board members.

One reason this is effective is that most school districts lose

money for each student absence.

School administrators err when they allow the classroom

to be disrupted and politicized by granting students permission to remain

silent throughout an entire day.


1. Call your local schools and ask whether they permit students

or teachers to remain silent in the classroom on

"Day of Silence." IMPORTANT: Do not ask any administrator,

school board member, or teacher if the school sponsors,

endorses, or supports DOS. Schools do not technically sponsor

the Day of Silence. Technically, it is students, often students

in the gay-straight alliance, who sponsor it.

Many administrators will tell you that they do not sponsor the

DOS when, in fact, they do permit students and sometimes

even teachers to remain silent during instructional time.

Also ask administrators whether they permit teachers to create

lesson plans to accommodate student silence.

2. Find out what date the event is planned for your school.

(The national date in 2010 is April 16, but some schools observe

DOS on a different date).

3. Inform the school of your intention to keep your children

home on that date and explain why.

  1. It has been happening in the Washington State schools for several years. A couple of years ago, a neighbors son was sent home on that day for wearing a T-shirt that said "Straight and Proud." It was to provocative. Can you believe?!


I really do care what you think. However, if you are rude or use vulgarities, you will be deleted. Let us have an open and intelligent discussion here.
