Focus On The Family Takes Over ‘Day Of Truth’ With Fancy New Name, Same Attack On Gay Kids

Like you, I was getting quite worried there would be nobody to direct parents to remove their children from school on the National Day of Silence, where students are encouraged to keep their lips shut to symbolize all the queer youth who cannot speak up about being victimized by bullies. Since 2005 ex-gay group Exodus International has sponsored the National Day of Truth, a counter “holiday” used to expose the agenda of activist homosexuals — but after all those kids killed themselves because of bullying, Exodus’ chief Alan Chambers decided in October to call off the witch hunt. Luckily fellow hate group Focus on the Family, led by Jim Daly, is prepared to take the reins.

But they’re changing the name! No longer will it be Day Of Truth — NB: DayOfTruth.org remains dormant — but rather Day of Dialogue. (Too bad that name is already in use … to encourage acceptance.)

Great marketing plan, you see, because dialogue brings to mind the idea that there’s an actual conversation taking place here. But that’s a facade. Like every Day Of Truth for the past five years, Day of Dialogue will be a chance for hatemongers to endorse intolerance under the guise of free speech.

“We’re trying to raise awareness that more than one side needs to be heard on the issue of homosexuality, and we’re helping to ensure Christian students have the chance to express their viewpoint,” says FOTF’s Candi Cushman (pictured) in a release. “What is freedom of speech, after all, but a guarantee of the right to have dialogue? Silence is a media op, but dialogue is a learning op. That’s why we’re so proud of the more than 14,000 students who have taken advantage of this opportunity to learn and share.”

Ah yes, the woman who is concerned about LGBT activists turning everything into butt sex, and worried about all the straight kids that gays bully, now wants to have us being a dialogue.

This woman is a monster.

      If I weren’t such a lady, I’d say that I wish that this stupid retarded twat gets gang ass-raped by rabid bears and then gets herpes from the simultaneous gang-bang by 300 meth-crazed redneck Teabaggers. And that someone stick a red-hot poker up her cunt.

      But I’m a lady. I’ll just say: Fucking idiot right-wing Christian cunt should shut up and DIE already.

      Scary stuff: Focus on the Family has 14,000 students trained to defeat homosexuality by verbally engaging (translate: arguing) with LGB peers and their supporters.

      What do we got?

      seems to me like the Day of Dialogue is basically a way to bring “God’s” judgement into public schools.

      maybe students should begin a new day called “Separation of God and Public Education Day” to take place the day before the Day of Dialogue.

      that should get people talking.

      The Day of Dialogue can be a day to talk about which politicans and employees of organizations are violating the human rights of millions of Americans and what should be done to stop them. Sounds like it could be very productive as long as groups don’t mind millions of Americans getting even.

      I hope that the University of Virginia files a complaint against Focus on the Family. I’m not sure what they can do legally, unless they have a copyright on the name, but I hope they go public with the fact that “Day of Dialogue” was their commodity first.

      No matter how much they try to hide their true motives, the FoF folks are set on bringing their ownreligion into the state/public schools, to convert and ‘save’ those who favour GLB rights.

      Do the Gay-Straight Alliances or any of the national big-wig groups have a counter-strategy? Might any of the organisations trying to ensure separation of church and state be willing to lend their support?

      I fear that this ‘Dialogue’ they are promoting will amount to well-scripted lecturing in the guise of open discussion.
      Public schools are not the right place for this to occur.
