Lenoir City High School Not
Participating in DOS
|Contrary to information on the
American Family Association web site,
Lenoir City High School is not participating in the
Day Of Silence
according to Lenoir City Director Of Schools, Wayne Miller. The web site
reports that LCHS is one eight schools across Tennessee that will
participate in the DOS in support of homosexuality. However, Miller stated that at no time was LCHS
planning to participate. School administrators were attempting to find
out how LCHS got on the list and are working to have the schools name
removed from the list. The other seven Tennessee schools listed were,
CAMPBELL COUNTY COMPRE. HIGH SCHOOL
Day Of Silence is sponsored by an activist homosexual group, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN 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.
The American Family Association is advocating that parents of children in the schools participating in DOS should keep their children out of school on April 25th in protest of DOS.
