There are three major reasons to keep your children home on the Day of Silence:
1.) To remove your children from exposure to yet more corrupt ideas and coercive social pressure.
2.) To communicate to administrators, faculty, and school board members that if they allow instructional time to be disrupted—and yes, refusal to speak disrupts instructional time—your children will not be present.
3.) To prevent political protests from metastasizing in government schools.
Efforts like the Day of Silence are not solely or centrally about ending bullying. These efforts are intended to eradicate moral distinctions between right and wrong sexual behavior and to mainstream homosexuality and the “trans” ideology. One can oppose both bullying and the Day of Silence.
Efforts like the Day of Silence, the school sexuality-indoctrination bill, and Dykstra’s recommendations for “transing” preschools are about using public monies and captive audiences of children to transform their moral and political views. That is not the role of government employees. The presupposition on which all of these efforts are based is that homosexual activity and opposite-sex impersonation are moral, which is an arguable belief—not an objective fact….more
Frustrated parents across the nation are planning to remove their children from public schools later this month in protest of “pornographic” sex ed curriculum being taught under the guise of “anti-bullying.”
The “Sex Ed Sit Out,” which has been months in the making, is taking place on Monday, April 23.
The protest was launched by a few American mothers on social media who were troubled by the explicit nature of content in current sex ed resources used in public schools. As their coordination efforts gained ground, the initiative went global with demonstrations planned in Australia and Canada…. more
“If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.” So writes George Orwell in his eerily prophetic novel, 1984. If you’re not concerned about where America is nowadays, and where we’re heading, you’re not paying attention. But if you’re only concerned, you’re wasting your time and energy. Merely being concerned about a problem never does anything to solve it. Never mind a school walkout. We, God’s people, need to start really walking with the Lord. The future of our nation depends upon it.
Yesterday’s 17-minute National School Walkout was good—and bad. In fact, it was very bad. The demonstration designed to eulogize the 17 lives lost during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, to appeal for stricter gun control, was a telling sign that, unlike any other time in America, an alarming number of young people are mistaking the government for God. Brace yourself, because this will not end well if we continue on this path…. more
REVISITING ORWELL TO UNDERSTAND OUR TIMES
Just two or three generations ago, most Americans understood that George Orwell’s classics Animal Farm and 1984 were written to explain how freedom is lost to totalitarianism and the intolerance that accompanies it. “Big Brother,” a term that many people still casually use to describe an all-knowing governing authority, comes right out of 1984. In the society that Orwell describes, all citizens are continually reminded that “Big Brother is watching you,” by way of a constant surveillance through the pervasive use of “telescreens” by the ruling class…. more
Following the deadly shooting rampage at a high school in Parkland, Florida, state lawmakers have taken a big step toward making public schools more accommodating to God.
The Florida House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed House Bill 839 by a vote of 97-10. The bill requires “each district school board to adopt rules for the display of the official state motto in specified places”.
The state motto is “In God We Trust”.
State Rep. Kimberly Daniels (D-Jacksonville) sponsored the bill.
“I believe with all the negativity going on, our children need to know the foundation of what this country is all about and what it was founded on,” Daniels told CBN News…. more
Many are asking where is/was God? We are now swirling into a downward spiral of destruction and chaos as witnessed by the events in our public schools, weather, people and yes our nation. You can clearly see all the events each year taking place and rising.
The following comments were made by Professor Pinker “It is not against religion. It is certainly against the belief that God interferes with the laws of the universe and that by praying to him we can make the world better. I think that is a dangerous belief because it’s not true. If we want to make the world better, we have to figure out how to do it ourselves. If we want to cure disease, we have to come up with antibiotics and vaccines and not prayer. If we want to stave off global warming, we can’t assume God won’t let bad things happen.”
He then says about Florida shooting, “Casting doubt on the idea that there is a benevolent shepherd who looks out for human welfare. What was the benevolent shepherd doing while the teenager was massacring his classmates.”
His conclusion, “he (God) is not listening and we saw that yesterday.”
Professor Pinker is not the only one one asking this question, nor is it a new question. Believers and unbelievers have cried out, God where are you?
Why are we asking this question when clearly we are the ones who are kicking him out of everything or we are standing by on the sidelines waving while God is being kicked out…. more
Children as young as 5 would be permitted to choose their own race and gender-identity —without approval from their parents — under a controversial new policy proposed in Delaware.
Drafted by the state Department of Education, “Regulation 225 Prohibition of Discrimination” would require schools to provide access to facilities (bathrooms, locker rooms, sex education classes) and activities (team sports like wrestling and football) that are consistent with a student’s gender identity — regardless of the child’s sex at birth or age, even if their parents object. Under the proposal, students could also choose their own race.
“All students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race,” the proposed regulation states… more

Many are offering thoughts and prayers for the people affected by the deadly school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
Churches across south Florida have been holding prayer vigils and opening their doors to people in search of peace after 17 people died in the attack.
President Trump offered prayers of comfort and support for the families of those killed.
“In these moments of heartache and darkness, we hold on to God’s Word in scripture: ‘I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you,” he said. “We trust in that promise and we hold fast to our fellow Americans in their time of sorrow.”… more
Amen, Our Lord in Heaven who brings PEACE and HOPE!
Psalm 31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.
Psalm 33:18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
Psalm 33:22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
