Christians at 700 high schools in 'Day of Truth'

Christian students at more than 700 high schools across the nation will join today in an event to counter homosexual activism.

The number of participants in the “Day of Truth” has doubled over last year, according to the Arizona-based Alliance Defense Fund, which is sponsoring the event.

ADF President, CEO, and General Counsel Alan Sears sees the “Day of Truth” as an opportunity to express a different perspective than the “Day of Silence,” promoted by the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Educational Network.

“Allowing the communication of one viewpoint and claiming it’s the only viewpoint is advocating, not educating,” Sears said.

The event takes place one day after the “Day of Silence,” which urges students to remain silent for an entire day to express support for the homosexual agenda.

Students participating in the “Day of Truth” will wear T-shirts and hand out cards during school hours – between classes – with the following message:


I am speaking the Truth to break the silence. Silence isn’t freedom. It’s a constraint. Truth tolerates open discussion, because the Truth emerges when healthy discourse is allowed. By proclaiming the Truth in love, hurts will be halted, hearts will be healed, and lives will be saved.

“The ‘Day of Silence’ seems more concerned about silencing other viewpoints than providing complete information to students,” said Sears. “Silence doesn’t teach anything. However, an open, honest, and respectful discussion allows Truth to rise to the surface.”

ADF launched the “Day of Truth” last year, with about 350 schools participating.
