ProLife & Family Issues

The Day of Silence, which is sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), fast approaches. GLSEN is listed on AFA’s anti-Christian Bigotry map.

This year, GLSEN is urging teen students to practice openly homosexual activism in the public classroom on Friday, April 17.

On this day, thousands of public high schools and increasing numbers of middle schools will allow students to remain silent throughout an entire day-even during instructional time-to promote GLSEN’s socio-political goals.

Parents must actively oppose this hijacking of the classroom for political purposes. Please join the national effort to restore to public education a proper understanding of the role of government-subsidized schools.

You can help de-politicize the learning environment by calling your child out of school if your child’s school allows students to remain silent during instructional time on the Day of Silence.

If students will be permitted to remain silent, parents can express their opposition most effectively by calling their children out of school on the Day of Silence and sending letters of explanation to their administrators, their children’s teachers, and all school board members. One reason this is effective is that most school districts lose money for each student absence.

School administrators err when they allow the classroom to be disrupted and politicized by granting students permission to remain silent throughout an entire day.

Visit www.doswalkout.net for complete information on opposing the Day of Silence.

TAKE ACTION

1. Call your local schools and ask whether they permit students or teachers to remain silent in the classroom on “Day of Silence.” IMPORTANT: Do not ask any administrator, school board member, or teacher if the school sponsors, endorses, or supports DOS. Schools do not technically sponsor the Day of Silence. Technically, it is students, often students in the gay-straight alliance, who sponsor it. Many administrators will tell you that they do not sponsor the DOS when, in fact, they do permit students and sometimes even teachers to remain silent during instructional time. Also ask administrators whether they permit teachers to create lesson plans to accommodate student silence.

 2. Find out what date the event is planned for your school. (The national date in 2015 is Friday, April 17, but some schools observe DOS on a different date).

3. Inform the school of your intention to keep your children home on that date and explain why.

I have been telling my wife and kids and others — that the big persecution coming to Christians will be from the militant Gay Totalitarianism. I am not hateful of gays — to the contrary, I love them like everyone else. 

Do I oppose the Gay Lifestyle? Yes. I also oppose other aberrant and perverted lifestyles.

Do I hate gays, of course not! They are human beings created in the image of God like I am and everyone else. But I do not what their agenda pushed down my throat. I don’t want them to succeed in pushing their lifestyle to end up causing destruction of the family and giving them priority over others. I believe in and support the traditional family and the universally held definition of marriage.

Yes, I am opposed to the militant Gay Lobby and the way they are forcing everyone to — not just approve of their lifestyle — but to celebrate it. If we don’t then we are bigots and hateful and we will be the targets of their new totalitarianism. 

This web page will help explain what we as Christians will be up against in the coming years – -and already! Our kids will be the victims.

Read and watch this at your own risk. If you don’t want to be opposed and to suffer persecution — then deny Christ now and join the relativistic, traditional family opposing elite.

A few days ago a high school girl wrote to ask me questions about abortion. She was writing a paper and wanted to “interview” me on the topic.

I was busy jumping planes and giving talks so my daughter-in-law Anna graciously — and brilliantly — answered the young lady for me. I think you will enjoy and appreciate her wise and charitable response.

E. B. writes: 

I am a high-schooler in Pennsylvania.  I am working on a research project about the Catholic Church’s views on abortion, and I was wondering whether you may be willing to share some interesting information about the Church’s role in the fight against abortion.

Do you think that the Church is winning its fight? How do Catholics justify themselves when they protest against abortion?  What are your personal opinions about abortion?

Anna responds:

Dear E. B.,

 The Church defends all persons from the horror of abortion, which is the taking of an innocent life, because of her understanding of what a person is. Each and every person is a unique and non-repeatable body and soul created by God and made in His image. 

 Each person has a specific mission or vocation given by God that is meant to be fulfilled on this earth, thereby allowing us to return to and remain with Him forever in heaven. Every person is holy because God is holy. The taking of an innocent life is a grave evil and an affront to God who is the author and creator of life. 

 The Church, which is made up of persons, plays a significant role in defending against the evil of abortion. One only needs to contact the hundreds of pro-life crisis pregnancy centers and pro-life groups, that seek to support mothers and their babies through material, emotional and spiritual means to find millions of people showing heroic virtue as they provide aid. There are also hundreds of groups fighting on a political level for just laws to protect the unborn child in the womb and support the mother in providing the necessary material means to provide for her child, through government aid programs and child support laws.

 It is an incredible tragedy, that a mother would ever feel she is in such a place of darkness and despair, that she must chose between her life and the life of her child. Followers of Christ and His Church seek to be a light for these mothers and a reminder of hope in their time of desperation. They enter into the darkness with the mothers and show them the way out. 

 The Followers of Christ become friends, mentors—the hands and feet of Christ—to these mothers and extend this help even further to the fathers, grandparents and siblings of the unborn child as needed. 

 I would encourage you to seek out some personal testimonies for your paper. Life site news may be a helpful resource: https://www.lifesitenews.com

 The Church is and always will be winning the battle, because she teaches truth, who is Jesus Christ. And Jesus Christ defeated the power of sin and death through His death and resurrection. The heart of the battle is about saving souls not about how popular an ideology is, so that even in what can appear to be the darkest hour, the Church is and always will be victorious.

 Lastly, I would like to address adoption, which is often an overlooked and misunderstood option. When the Church promotes adoption, we must be deliberate in recognizing and addressing the tragedy of the situation. Adoption is a difficult and heroic choice because it is the breaking of one family in order to build another. 

 When we fail to recognize the agony, pain, and sacrifice of the birth mother we do her a great disservice. Only when we can enter into her cross and help her to carry such a heavy burden will we begin to see more women choosing this life giving option.

 May God bless you as you write your paper!

 Anna
