    I must have missed the part in the video where those kids passed judgement on others....

    This seems to be a new thing for some Christians - to take offense at nearly every criticism of their faith. Again, they can say, "I think you're evil and going to hell", but when challenged, they simply walk away. "I don't want to hear your reasons that I should reconsider my actions!" is essentially what they said.

    It is sad that there are kids killing themselves and people who claim to be Christian would prefer to not hear how they might be playing a role in that. It essentially means they'd rather kids die than listen to anything that might be critical of their actions.

    And he didn't call all Christians "pansy assed"; that comment came after they'd already begun to walk out.

    The "la la la" thing is an analogy.


    Well Christians are no different than anyone else. No one who "believes" in something strongly and it means a great deal to them, wants to hear another mock or make fun of there belief. Human nature. Just as you didn't like it when it happened to you.

    These were school kids brought to this "conference" by their teacher. I'm assuming it was not advertised as a "Christian Bullying" session. It was billed as an anti-bullying session. The "speaker" should have given examples of bullying from all sides and his message would have been better received, and more fair.

    Oooh, a bit sensitive are we?

    Why can't people read a bit more? Most of the kids who walked out attended public high schools, not one private xian school.

    A couple of questions for the forum members: Is it legal for a student to pray in a public high school? Is it legal for a teacher to read from the Bible or Quran in a public high school?

    Could someone explain how Grim's post answers my questions? It seems a bit evasive to me.

    You were there and you can tell me that I'm lying?

    Once you produce the evidence that I'm a liar and I wasn't there and didn't hear that, then you can call BS. Otherwise, you are the liar.

    I've been a Catholic for 41 years, been to untold numbers of Mass, Weddings, Funerals and other events....not once have I ever heard a Priest even address homosexuality. I find it very interesting (suspicious) that those that just happen across one Catholic event in their lives are the ones that just happen to hear the raging Catholic sermon against homosexuality. Again, bull****.

    Maybe you're just not hearing the hate because you're comfortable with it.
