Help Celebrate "Keep the Bigots Home Day!"

Imagine a world with no bigots.

A country with no little bigot-spawn spewing forth their biblical curses and rants towards gay people, or people without faith, or people of a different faith.

Imagine a classroom where all children feel loved, regardless of their differences.

Imagine a school that teaches acceptance and love for all. A school without bigot-brigades, self-righteous hypocrites, or "religious" leaders attempt to censor the words of teachers.

Imagine a time when there are no fundamentalist religious congregations and CEOs "pastors" trying to force their beliefs on everyone else.

Sounds nice, right?

Well, that can become reality for just one day if you participate in "Keep the Bigots Home Day" on April 25.

To see what the world would be like without any nut-wing homobigots, encourage all the homobigots you know to keep their children home from school that day.

You see, April 25 is also "Day of Silence," the largest student-led action towards creating safer schools for all regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

By the way, this year's Day of Silence is in honor of Lawrence King, the student who was murdered at his California school on February 12 because of his sexual orientation and gender expression.

In response to the mass acceptance that "Day of Silence" has received across the nation, the AFA is honoring "Keep the Bigots Home Day" and encouraging all its members to keep their children home from school.

In an email I received today, Don Wildmon (Founder and Chairman of the AFA) states:

"DOS is sponsored by an activist homosexual group, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). DOS leads the students to believe that every person who identifies as a homosexual, bisexual or cross-dresser is a victim of ongoing, unrelenting harassment and hate. Students are taught that homosexuality is a worthy lifestyle, homosexuality has few or no risks, and individuals are born homosexual and cannot change. Those who oppose such teaching are characterized as ignorant and hateful bigots."

And, on the AFA website, it states:

"...AFA is joining other family-oriented groups in urging parents to keep their children at home that day if their local school is participating in the DOS project. By remaining silent, the intent of the pro-homosexual students is to disrupt the classes while promoting the homosexual lifestyle."

LOL.

Excuse me?

LOL.

"By remaining silent, the intent of the pro-homosexual students is to disrupt the classes..." [emphasis added]

Sometimes I don't know whether the AFA is serious in their anti-homosexuality, or if they are a mockery of real fundamentalists. Either way, don't forget to encourage your local homobigots to keep their children at home for a day!

Seriously? There's the AFA for ya, continuing to re-define words: including now, "disruptive."

They never cease to entertain me!
