'Day of Silence' v 'Day of Truth'

Christian's picture

I was researching this 'Day of Silence' you people seem to be talking about (Here in the UK, we dont have that) and I came across this website: http://www.stopseed.com *. As I started to read it, I felt it was what I needed to know, but after further reading I realised what was going on. This was an anti-gay group.

Now, I understand homophobia, I dont accept or aprove of it, but I understand - people, dont want to think about or accept our 'way of life'. I also get religion that doesnt accept us, they feel that someone very important has personally felt that our way of life is unacceptable, and feel the need to agree. But I dont get this. Grouping up explicitly (or as a main point of an agenda) to activly attack us. This really is a sadening thought for me.

This page also cites this page: http://www.alliancedefensefund.org *. They have set up a day, following the 13th April, to counteract the work of students who are rightfully protesting and harming no-one in the process. In fact they seem to crimanalise the behaviour and portray a very differnt image of the event (the 'Day of Silence') than the official site: http://www.dayofsilence.org/.

I didnt realise that people like this existed, that disliked us so much that they would actively seek out, and seek to crimalise our feelings and behaviour.

sick at the thought..

These people make me physically ill, whatever happened to "Judge not and thou shalt not be judged." They're evil and they don't even know that they are.

Day of "Truth"

I told the head of my school's GLBT student union about this "Day of Truth." I don't know if any of the Christian groups here will try and pull that off, but they could.

Interesting... I can under

Interesting...

I can understand why this looks appealing to some people. But that's because they seem to have glazed over a few details.

Defending first amendment rights... psh... The condemnation is disgusting. I wonder if they would let a KKK member do his work there for first amendment rights.

Also, they said that he was suspended for displaying "his religious beliefs about homosexuality" on his shirt.

It was probably a shirt that said "God Hates Fags"

You can never beat time, but you can sure put up a hell of a fight.
