Group Wants Christians To Pull All Their Public Schooled Kids Out Of Classes April 15th

  The American Family Association is asking the parent of every public schooled child to pull them out of school for 1 day in April. It's because of the "Day of Silence." That's the day the Lesbian, Gay, and Straight Education Network set aside in thousands of high schools and middle schools across the nation. They are asking kids to stay completely silent for an entire school day-- not answer questions during instructional time, not talk with their friends during passing periods-- to stand supportive of gay rights. The AFA calls it the "hijacking of the classroom for political purposes"-- and is asking every mom and dad to make sure their kid doesn't participate-- by staying home-- april 15th.
