Daring to Refuse Compromise

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness.... Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!" Isaiah 5:20-21

At J. Middle School in [I deleted the location], teachers passed out stickers to the children that read "A Day of Silence."  There was no prior advance notice to parents of this event.  Wearing the sticker indicated that the child was in favor of gay rights and same-sex marriage and would be silent for the entire day.   If a child refused the sticker, he/she was labeled a "racist."  Very few children refused the sticker. 

       My grandson, age 12, refused.  He reminded his teachers that California voters voted against same-sex marriage.  The teachers responded ... "well, that's going to change." 

      As many of you know I was a high school principal, and I decry the manipulation of children to advance educators' political agendas.  My daughter and son-in-law intend to pursue this matter with the ... School Board but do not hold much hope.  This is an outrage.  I am extremely proud of my grandson for standing up for his beliefs.  Please let others know what is happening.  I fear for our future.

"... in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves.... disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good....  And from such people turn away!
       "...all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned..."  2 Timothy 3:1-14
