    Christian Group Finds Gay Agenda in Anti-Bullying Day

    Christian Group Finds Gay Agenda in Anti-Bullying Day - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    On Mix It Up at Lunch Day, schoolchildren around the country are encouraged to hang out with someone they normally might not speak to.

    The program, started 11 years ago by the Southern Poverty Law Center and now in more than 2,500 schools, was intended as a way to break up cliques and prevent bullying.

    But this year, the American Family Association, a conservative evangelical group, has called the project "a nationwide push to promote the homosexual lifestyle in public schools" and is urging parents to keep their children home from school on Oct. 30, the day most of the schools plan to participate this year.

    The charges, raised in an e-mail to supporters earlier this month, have caused a handful of schools to cancel this year's event and has caught organizers off guard.

    "I was surprised that they completely lied about what Mix It Up Day is," said Maureen Costello, the director of the center's Teaching Tolerance project, which organizes the program. "It was a cynical, fear-mongering tactic."

    ...

    The program is not about sexual orientation but rather about breaking up social cliques, which are especially evident in a school cafeteria, Ms. Costello said.

    In some schools, cliques are socio-economic. In others they are ethnic or religious or based on sexual orientation. By giving students a way to mix with other students, self-imposed social barriers can be broken down and bullying can be curbed, she said.

    So an anti-bullying school program designed to get kids to mix up who they sit with and meet new people, instead of isolating one another in cliques, somehow translates into promoting the homosexual agenda? Maybe one of the fundies here can explain how this works? The "American Family Association" is really going off the deep end.

    Just a hate group, merely hiding behind Christian "faith."

    and yet, until catholicism denounces this kind of thing EN MASSE, this hateful behavior will only continue. anyone of the christian faith who does not speak out against this kind of thing LOUDLY, is merely endorsing its existence. congrats organized religion.
