Student leaders at American River College passed a resolution Thursday opposing today's nationally organized demonstration in support of gay rights.Lest anyone misunderstand me by reading my comments above literally and not checking the links, I do not support the Day of Silence but I'm also very critical of the American River College student government.
The resolution asserts that "the Day of Silence has been used to silence and harass religious students at local public schools for expressing their viewpoints," and instead calls for a "peaceful discussion of controversial issues instead of intimidation and censorship of opposing viewpoints."

Day of Silence
Today was the national Day of Silence. How did our good friends at American River College, about whom I've written before, handle the day?
