Protest Planned for “Day of Silence” at Mt. Si High School

REDMOND, Washington — Dr. Ken Hutcherson, Senior Pastor of Antioch Bible Church has announced he is organizing a protest outside of Mt. Si High School in Snoqualmie, Washington on Friday, April 25, 2008 at 10:00 am, in objection to the “Day of Silence.”

By recently admitting that “HIV is a gay disease,” Matt Foreman, outgoing Executive
Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, acknowledged what the medical community has known for decades: the homosexual lifestyle is extremely high-risk and often leads to disease and even death.

According to Matt Barber of Concerned Women for America, “’The Day of Silence’ is all about advancing full acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle among children.”

“Can you imagine officials at a middle school, junior high or high school setting aside a day to promote ‘tolerance’ for heavy smoking and drinking among children?” he asks. “How about a day where teachers encourage kids to ‘embrace who they are,’ pick up that crack pipe and give it a stiff toke? The public would go ballistic, and for good reason.”

“But that hasn’t stopped officials in thousands of schools across the country from promoting other politically correct and socially ‘in-vogue’ behaviors that – both statistically and manifestly – are every bit as dangerous as the aforementioned ‘frowned-upon’ behaviors.”

“That’s exactly what the homosexual activist ‘Day of Silence’ is all about – advancing, through clever, feel-good propaganda, full acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle among children,”
says Mr. Barber.

Tom Minnery, a senior vice president at Focus on the Family, speaking on behalf of Dr. Dobson’s organization said, “It takes courage to stand against the harm of the homosexual lifestyle, and we applaud Dr. Hutcherson as he stands against the nonsense underway at Mt. Si High School.”

“Indoctrinating children to believe that every Judeo-Christian virtue is a vice, and every vice — a virtue, is hardly the mission that American parents expect from the schools to which they trustingly send their children.” says Rabbi Daniel Lapin, American Alliance of Jews and Christians.

It is time for us as moral people to be unashamed and take a stand. We must make a moral statement in our public schools. It is time for opponents of the ‘Day of Silence’ to come out of the closet,” states Dr. Hutcherson.
