Liberty Counsel opposes, but doesn’t understand, ‘Mix It Up Day’

Calls it a day where boys can wear girls clothes or pretend to be gay

October 30 is “Mix It Up at Lunch Day” which encourages students to “move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch.” The point of the effort is to break up cliques and get students to spend time with different groups of people, but because it is a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Religious Right vehemently opposes it, falsely claiming that ”it’s just another thinly veiled attempt to promote the homosexual agenda.”

Today, Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber and Steve Crampton weighed in to warn about the dangers of “Mix It Up” day … despite obviously having absolutely no idea what it is actually about, as Crampton bizarrely asserted that it was a day “where boys can wear girls clothes [or] pretend to be homosexual” or even dress up like an uptight, judgmental Christian who tells everyone they are going to Hell in order to “make fun of Christianity by mocking it”:

  5. These people are so ridiculous. Honestly, if they didn’t have their heads up their asses they’d coach their kids to use the day to spread whatever BS they believe in to a wider audience. I mean, I’m glad they don’t, but still, if they were thinking… :)

  6. We should make “Mix it up day” to exclude evangelical christians then they will sue to be included.
