    re: Anti-Bullying Speaker Curses Christian Teens[W:165; 667]

    if the speech was meant to be about gay equality... what he said was fine and dandy.
    but as an anti-bullying speech, he failed miserably... he became a bully.


    personally, I don't put much stock in this current anti-bullying schtick going on in this country....so i'm not terribly offended when it falls flat on it's face like it did here.


    anyways, the message those kids learned ( and others here too) was that bullying is bad, unless you agree with the bully's agenda...then it's fine.
    way to go Savage, you defeated your own alleged agenda( anti-bully agenda), dumbass.


    ( who is the dumbass that invited Savage to a an anti-bully thing anyways?.. do they not know who he is?)

    I was not addressing the video. I was addressing the tenor and content of the post of which I was responding.

    I can't believe you too have bought into this BS.

    Unfriend me, please.
    Using the language and attitude he did, is bullying. I wouldn't put up with it were someone using the same tone and same character of words to attempt to change my mind.

    Your choice about friending. I am friends with a number of people with whom I disagree and therefore see agreement as no condition on which to base my friendships.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    TPD, would you say Jesus Christ was a bigot?

    The "root", is in homosexuals being different, or if you will, outside the norm.

    I give them a "pass" just like I do other religions.
    I don't believe Muslims should be condemned en mass, for the actions of a few.

    Individuals make choices, sometimes they use religion to justify their beliefs.
    It doesn't make the individual less responsible and the religion more responsible.
    The religion is a thing, it doesn't speak and act on it's own accord.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Which is why I said in my original comment, "a lot of people who teach their children that homosexuality is a sin and bad and that gay people can't get married" and not just "teaching that a certain action is a sin". Unfortunately, teaching your children that they are worthy of marriage, but gay people aren't is teaching them that gay people are less than them. Moreover, as Savage pointed out, there aren't entire movements dedicated banning the eating of shellfish, which is also an abomination, so obviously a lot of people think what gay people do is super special and much more sinful than the mussels they ate last weekend.

    I agree, though, that one can believe homosexual acts are sins and not believe that gay people are less than them, but that coexists with what I said. It's not a counterargument.

    It's not a Christian thing - it's an asshole thing.
    Right, let's just pretend beliefs aren't involved in bullying at all. White supremacists who bully black kids are just doing an "asshole thing" not a racism thing.

    Those who know that the bible is wrong on condemning homosexuals can certainly be offended by someone calling the bible "BS". There are ways to present your argument that make it listenable. Attacking the bible, even if you mean to attack certain parts, will not get people to hear your message.

    The "norm". It exists in nature, supposedly god created nature, ergo homosexuality was created by god. To condemn it is hypocrisy.
