Savage Speech Reveals Double Standard

For example, when homosexual activist Dan Savage—who created the “It Gets Better” anti-bullying campaign that has been commended by President Obama—spoke to students gathered at NSPA/JEA’s annual High School Journalism convention, his opening words were, “We can learn to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about gay people, the same way we have learned to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about shellfish, about slavery…[and] about virginity.”

Savage went on to say that because (in his opinion) the writers of the Bible got so many simple things wrong, “What are the odds that the Bible got something as complicated as human sexuality wrong?” He answered his own question with, “100%.”

Savage is correct that the Bible teaches that homosexual behavior is wrong, but he purposely takes the teachings and historical records of the Old Testament out of context in order to deride the Bible’s teachings on sexual morality. Christian students in the listening audience walked out in droves. And once they’d walked out, Savage looked at the remaining audience members and mocked the Christians as “pansies” (among other things).

This is a perfect example of the anti-bullying campaign double standard. While homosexual activists contend that anti-bullying laws should protect people who practice homosexual behavior from hearing the negative opinions of others regarding that behavior, and shield them from the Bible’s teaching on the subject, activists like Savage (and many others) want to be free to call Christians names and debase and mock the Bible. Savage’s hypocrisy was even more egregious than typical student to student speech because he is an adult who used his position of authority to vilify kids who disagreed with his anti-biblical views, but had no way of responding.

Savage’s rant demonstrates that he and his colleagues want Constitutional protection to offend and criticize people of faith who believe homosexual behavior is harmful, but are pushing for laws that criminalize any speech they find offensive.

So the truth is that there is a hierarchy of acceptable and unacceptable views on the issue of homosexual behavior. For homosexual activists, the number one protected viewpoint should be theirs, and any groups who might not take too kindly to the activists’ pursuit of special rights should lose their constitutionally protected freedom. the rest

Criticism mounts against Dan Savage address to teens

Anti-bullying seminar turns into anti-Christian diatribe: Today’s journey beyond satire.

Obama's Savage Administration
...Back in 2000, Savage was hired by Salon to infiltrate the Gary Bauer presidential campaign. He became so frustrated with Bauer's religiosity that after contracting the flu, he decided to go around the office licking doorknobs in order to infect the other staffers. He even handed Bauer a saliva-coated pen, hoping to infect him with the flu. He then proceeded to vote in the Iowa caucuses, although he wasn't registered in the state. This isn't bullying. It's biological warfare. Beyond that, it's gross -- no doorknob deserves to be licked by Dan Savage...

Barack Obama's Silence Speaks Louder than His Words
...Based on how quickly Barack Obama raced out to the microphones to address what he felt were demeaning comments directed toward the frail Ms. Fluke, is Obama planning on doing likewise and officially distancing himself from Dan Savage by publicly addressing his "inappropriate," anti-Christian remarks?

When he's finished straightening out Mr. Savage, will the President then be phoning the children who were called 'pansy asses' by his abusive White House guest, as he did Sandra Fluke ? Will he tell the kiddies their parents should be proud of them for the dignified way they respectfully dismissed themselves from the awkward confrontation?
