The week started with Brian Camenker's favorite adjectives: "horrific and chilling." Yes, Massresistance, THOSE are the adjectives that describe the events that happened in Virginia. Although I could never imagine Massresistance using those words to describe anything horrible. They're still talking up the 2nd Amendment on their sites.
It does make me wonder where Virginia has its priorities when they can craft a constitutional amendment to destroy any kind of contract or agreement between same sex couples yet also allow people, who have been committed to hospitals for psychiatric reasons, to buy firearms (interesting side note I learned this past week: you can buy one firearm a month in Virginia). "No Gay people are allowed to form unions but here's your gun and 50 rounds of bullets" disgusting!
Unbelievable as it is, this all happened days from the 8th anniversary of the Columbine shootings. With all this that happened I thought I couldn't be shocked anymore, well, that is until I received the latest email update from Massresistance:
=== 1. FIGHTING BACK: High school students organizing "Day of Defiance" in several Massachusetts high schools to confront "Day of Silence"! Parents and others also invited to get involved on Wednesday April 25. ===
In Massachusetts the dreaded "Day of Silence" takes place in schools on Wednesday April 25 -- a week later than the rest of the country (because of Patriots Day and school vacation week). And here in Massachusetts, it's not only the parents who've had enough -- it's the students. And they are organizing to fight back. A group is mobilizing for a "Day of Defiance" at five of state's most aggressively pro-homosexual high schools, as all-day events at the same time the Day of Silence is taking place.
"Have they No shame?" In the middle of the nation's pain they are promoting divisiveness and causing more pain among the children.Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people affected by these horrific acts this week.
UPDATE: It should come as no surprise to you who exactly is behind this "Day of Defiance" (from the Day of Defiance website, hurry because I can bet they are going to taken it down soon):
The Day of Defiance was initiated by the Massachusetts grassroots conservative groups MassResistance and the Massachusetts Federation of Conservative Bloggers to stand up for taxpaying parents' rights in public education, while also offering an alternative view of the issues to Massachusetts students (a rare occurrence, undoubtedly the first for many).
