A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Um, "Protest" a Day of Silence How, Exactly?

From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
A student Day of Silence on Friday in support of gay and lesbian students has drawn a protest from a group led by Redmond pastor Ken Hutcherson, who has a daughter at the school. Gay rights supporters plan a counter-protest.
So, what did the pastor have in mind? A "Day of Noise"? In a high school?

Like anyone would notice.

More interestingly, why protest somebody's right (constitutionally-protected right, in the US) to express their sexuality openly and honestly?

I tend to believe many of the people who speak out most strongly against gays and lesbians are doing so in order to ensure they never have to come out of the closet and face themselves.

Interesting. Most of these nay-sayers are the ones with their heads cut off in their Manhunt profiles...

Sounds about right.

The louder they thunder against, the more tightly closeted they are.

In fact, nothing so much advanced the cause of homosexual rights in Canada as the type and argumentation of people opposing them.
