Mount Si inspires participation in the DoS
Hutch's bodyguard looks on as former students
and community members disrupt their proselytizing.
Day of Silence speaks volumes

Sometimes silence speaks quite loudly.
Students at Federal Way High School, as well as more than 200 high schools throughout the state, participated in the National Day of Silence event on April 25.
Both homosexual and heterosexual students banded together to raise awareness of the bullying and harassment that gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual students often face. They made their statement by going all day without speaking, instead signing their names to a list of supporters and passing out cards describing their cause.
At lunchtime on Friday, 84 students had already signed up as supporters. More students continued to sign up throughout the day.
“It’s a great demonstration,” said Paul Cantu, a senior at Federal Way and the ASB president. “Everybody’s very supportive.”
Gay and lesbian students at Federal Way are sometimes subject to derogatory language, Cantu said.
“As with anything, there’s going to be a little bit of bullying for people that are different,” he said.
Cantu said he suspects that in several years, people will look back in awe and disgust over the discrimination and harassment that gays and lesbians often face.
Extra participation at Federal Way’s Day of Silence this year was fueled partly because of news of anti-gay protests at a similar event at Snoqualmie Valley’s Mount Si High School, Cantu said. Students at Federal Way were inspired to come forward in support of their school’s diversity.

...Awesome! Mount Si, setting the standard!
In a related story from World Nuts Daily, they are reporting fabrications worthy of CoDE and Hutch himself!
"Take the Seattle area's Mount Si High School for instance. Out of 1,410 students, nearly half (638) reportedly walked out of school on DOS with a unified voice saying, "No! We're here to learn. We refuse to be subject to radical homosexual indoctrination at school or anywhere else!"
The Rev. Ken Hutcherson, a former pro-football player, current pro-family champion and pastor of Antioch Bible Church, led the charge in defense of God's moral standard at Mount Si. He organized a prayer rally outside the school – which his daughter attends – and was joined by hundreds of parents, children and community members."
Once again, the actual number was 495 out of 1,410. Of those, many were kept home to avoid the protesters (Hutch) not the DoS.
And Hutcherson joined by "HUNDREDS" of parents? There were less than a hundred, as in singular.
These nuts are either delusional or bald faced liars!
