As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy assed.”
The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called “Savage Love.”
Savage, and his husband, were also guests at the White House for President Obama’s 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception. He was also invited to a White House anti-bullying conference.
Savage was supposed to be delivering a speech about anti-bullying at the National High School Journalism Conference sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. But it turned into an episode of Christian-bashing.Look, Christians who believe Savage can be gay all day long shouldn't be forced to agree with the lifestyle. No One is talking about making homosexuality illegal or persecuting homosexuals (no one that I choose to know personally). Why does the Christian belief that homosexuality is immoral or wrong so offend Savage? He is an angry homosexual who is mad at people for not believing as he does. Period. There's a term for that and it's called 'thought police.'
Rick Tuttle, the journalism advisor for Sutter Union High School in California, was among several thousand people in the audience. He said they thought the speech was one thing – but it turned into something else.
“I thought this would be about anti-bullying,” Tuttle told Fox news. “It turned into a pointed attack on Christian beliefs.”
Tuttle said a number of his students were offended by Savage’s remarks – and some decided to leave the auditorium.
As for the 'heads I win, tails you lose' argument, two can play that game. Perhaps Savage is so angry because his conscience is telling him that his lifestyle is immoral and wrong.
