Today's Day of Silence peaceful protest was met with a bomb threat at New Castle Chrysler High School forcing the school to go on lockdown. Nothing quite like tolerance to bring out the threats of violence, eh?
Of particular interest is the protest scheduled for tomorrow. Called "Day of Truth," it calls for students to wear "positive" messages about the dangers of homosexuality and pass out Christian literature in public schools. So mixing religion with public schooling notwithstanding, isn't it ironic that they need to have an intolerance protest the next day? Didn't that happen today?
Note the sponsoring organization though. Remember them? They're the outfit from Arizona that flew in an attorney to testify on behalf of SJR-7. Because, you know, they're just impartial lawyers. No axe to grind...
In response, other students are planning to observe a "Day of Truth" on Thursday, said sophomore Kristen Schmeisser.
That also coincides with a national observance, this one planned by the Alliance Defense Fund. Its day is devoted to countering the "homosexual agenda" and presenting an "opposing viewpoint from a Christian perspective," according to the fund's Web site.
