The nationally recognized anti-gay hate group The American Family Association is at it again this time spouting hysterical anti-gay propaganda bullshit against the tenth annual Mix It Up At Lunch Day in which students are encouraged to dine with kids outside of their social circle on October 30th
In our surveys, students have identified the cafeteria as the place where divisions are most clearly drawn. So on one day – October 30 this school year – we ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. Some schools choose to host a unique activity to get the students involved with their community as is shown in this poster by the Canyons School District. It’s a simple act with profound implications. Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice. When students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misperceptions can fall away.
But according to the American Family Association theres a much deeper and darker agenda at play:
On, Tuesday, October 30, over two thousand schools across the nation will be observing “Mix It Up” (MIT) day. MIT is a nationwide push to promote the homosexual lifestyle in public schools. A strong focus is directed specifically to elementary and junior high grades. MIT is a project of the fanatical pro-homosexual group, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). This is the same organization that launched hateful and malicious rhetoric toward the Family Research Council just prior to the August shooting of a security guard by a SPLC sympathizer. AFA is joining other family-oriented groups in urging parents to keep their children at home that day if their local school is sponsoring the “Mix It Up” project. The Southern Poverty Law Center is using this project to bully-push its gay agenda, and at the same time, intimidate and silence students who have a Biblical view of homosexuality.
Yet another fine example of Christian Love© brought to you by the loving folks at AFA who know that the only way to pass on the hate is to keep their children segregated, in the dark and fed bullshit like little hateful button mushrooms.
