    No Gimmie. What I do is "consistenly" not follow the herring trail you lay out.


    If you have any doubts as to what the thread is about, go back to the original OP and read the article.


    Thanks.

    How do you expect to expand your mind if you can't think outside your own little sheltered world?

    Oh I get it. It's okay to take school students, who came with their teacher to a conference on bullying, and lay them out for nothing.

    But it's not okay to do that at your church.

    Enlightening.

    Well it's good to know that IYO any bigoted comment can be made to any group at a "journalism symposium". Please post now or in the future and example of this happening. You can't use Christian children again. That wouldn't fly. Pick say a black group, or Jewish group, or a gay group. Get back with us with the journalists total speech, okay?

    I wonder how many will stop reading the Economist because it printed the following:

    Christians, gays and bullying
    Mr Savage's apology did not stop the outrage machine. Some seem to have taken particular delight in hurling Mr Savage's epithets—bully and basher (of Christians and Christianity, rather than gays)—back at him. The American Thinker harrumphs, "Evidently, bullying is one of those things that is defined by the 'victim'." Well, yes: in fact it is. Bullying is the strong picking on the weak, not the other way around (the other way around is satire). One could make the argument that in the case of Mr Savage's speech, he was the strong one, and the high-school students were "victims", but that would be weak tea indeed. Mr Savage is one person, not a movement, and of course those students whom he gave the vapours were free to leave. Not everyone has such freedom. Gay teens, not Christian teens, kill themselves at higher rates than the general populace. Nobody calls Christianity an abomination. One blogger accused Mr Savage of "Christian-bashing" for pointing out the Bible's position on slavery. A writer for a Focus on the Family site said that "using profanity to deride the Bible...is obviously a form of bullying and name-calling." In fact it is neither: Mr Savage, however intemperate his language, was arguing, not name-calling. That is a crucial distinction, and one that too often eludes the showily devout. If the Bible is in fact the word of God it can survive a few arguments about context and application.
    my emphasis
