Video & Reaction: Dan Savage Lashes Out at Christian Teens

 

CitizenLink posts the actual video showing Dan Savage verbally abusing Christian teens at a school assembly on, of all things, anti-bullying (warning: language):

This morning, Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy interviewed Rick Tuttle, a California high school teacher whose students were among those who walked out because they were so offended by Savage's comments:

Meanwhile, the father of two students who attended the conference is speaking out in outrage:

"My son is the first boy you see leaving on the video. My daughter is right behind him. They felt that they were there to hear about journalism and this man's fight against bullying. They had no idea, and neither did I, of who Dan Savage actually was.

"As he started to insult the children's God, Bible, and choice of lifestyle, my son felt he had enough and calmly got up to leave. My daughter followed him and then the rest of their 22 classmates all got up and left.

"After they had left the room Dan Savage made his derogatory remarks in a cowardly fashion about them not being able to take it."

Naman says that organizers failed to provide satisfactory answers as to why Savage had been allowed to speak in the first place. -- Breitbart

    This "anti-bullying" advocate is doing the very thing he preaches against.

    The man is a COWARD..and a bully. Knowing young people where in the audience he savagely attacked their beliefs. I have neever seen such an un-excusable ABUSE heaped from a stage.
    This guy is miserable inside!

    "People are dying because they can't get past this one last hurdle"

    Oh...How?

    I thought they were dying from AIDS. I thought that the statistical incidence of ALL STD's was exponentially higher in the homosexual community. I thought that the walls of the rectum were very fragile and that pseudo-sexual activity often tears them, exposing the perpetrator to huge onslaught of whatever bacteria is present in the faecal matter and the semen. I thought that semen in the rectum challenged the immune system.

    But hang on a mo.... all those things ARE true!

    But let's not talk about any of those things because the homosexual minority finds it distasteful. Let's just call thrusting the penis into another person's anus the equivalent of sexual intercourse and honour it with the title of "marriage". After all, there's a multitude of heterosexuals to pay the health bill.

    Savage has no idea what he is talking about regarding the bible. He makes his ignorance sound very good and "knowledgeable" but it is never the less ignorance.

    well here we go the slow down fall and morals of America, how can any high school or any school for that matter allow a person of that mans attitude or his idea of religion be allowed to speak to young people
    who have no idea of what life is about yet.
    But when you think about it so many young men fought and died for him to speak in freedom like that and i think all of them and any of us who served will say shame on you but his day will come when the Lord will say to him so what have you done to feed my sheep????

    DEAR MODERATOR,

    Please disregard my last message (of a couple of minutes ago) to you, and accept my apologies. I see that after a day or so my original message was in fact posted even while I was writing my last message to you.

    Even without the condemnation of homosexuality in the Bible we are created male and female and those who promote homosexuality are advocating an anomalous and disgusting behavior. Savage's tactic is to promote homosexuality under the cover of 'bullying'. Everyone's against bullying so if you tie it to homosexuality, you can make it more palatable, more socially acceptable. Kudos to those students who had the courage, great courage, to walk out. Shame on the school organizers who invited this guy. According to gay rhetoric, all you have to do to qualify as a bigot is to believe that homosexual behavior is wrong, in spite of the obvious biological contradiction of it.

    I am not offended by his comments at all. He is right there is a lot of "bullshit" ( Maybe he should have used a more prude word) in the bible. He lists them. I mean for Gods Sake it says in the bible we should stone woman to death if they get married and are not a virgin. We choose to ignore that commandment, but then we pick and choose other commandments to follow. Also I think Fox News is DISGRACEFUL. They completely chopped the video to make him look like a villain on purpose without playing the whole speech.
