When I saw this video today, I gagged a little - and had a few high school flashbacks. Focus on the Family is sponsoring the "Day of Dialogue" this Thursday as a way for students to open up with friends about Jesus approved recommendations for the who, how, where, when, why, and how often for showing off your furry bits. (I'm pretty sure limiting action to marriage and one orifice will add-up to a short dialogue).
The idea that this takes place as a reaction to the "Day of Silence" is disgusting. It would be nice for the religious right to finally shut up for a day. I guess if they stopped talking for a day, they are afraid no one would notice.
I grew up evangelical in a small town with a graduating class of 98 people. Even that small and that Christian, I promise you, there was no special day needed for straight people to talk about sex - and for the students that weren't getting any to use church as an excuse (I'm sure a few people believed me when I said I didn't date because Jesus had more important things for me to focus on).
Though a public school, there was a prayer over the intercom (the day of 9/11), and we were required to stand for a prayer in Jesus name at graduation. Looking back, I wish I had known enough to protest. I was barely coming out, still a Christian, and afraid that causing too much of a stir would screw up my valedictorian prospects or scholarships - my only hope for getting out of there. But I never had to directly face any of my peers on the question of my sexuality. This would be hell.
Video and more after the jump.
