    The guy was doing exactly what he was "supposedly" talking against. When some of the Christian children walked out he called the "pansys". Thus he was his on prime example of what not to be/do . . . . . cut and dried.

    To me, it's not just his words, but the fact he said them at a public High School. That makes what he said state sponsored hate speech.

    Imagine if someone gave a speech on the evils of the homosexual lifestyle and called kids who left "pansys"... The outrage would be screamed by the left from every mountain top, and be the topic of every morning and evening news program on the main stream networks for at least a week.

    No, they disagreed with delivery of the message. Sure, he can be as pissy as he likes about it but he is not going to get through to many people. He can deliver his message any way he would like and people can choose to walk out as they did. It doesn't mean in any way that the actual people who walked out think they have the right to harrass, offend or attack gay students. It is just bad judgement to offend people who are probably on your side but don't like being stereotyped just as a gay student may be stereotyped.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    That's because in today's world you can call Christians anything you want and get away with it. It's done in all the best circles and very, very acceptable, you know.

    The hue and cry would be deafening. And again, we all know it.

    I mean, there's a reason that guys call each other "faggot" as low insult and also as a "joke." They're worried, I think. There's a reason that straight girls will fool around with other girls.

    I don't think this has much to do with religious belief. I myself have never heard of a Bible-based bashing. Any bullying of gay students is unacceptable, and I mean zero tolerance.

    But it's important to remember too that gay-bashing is not widespread, that acceptance, or at least respectful tolerance, is far more common.

    And also that suicide ideation is complex.
    Not a little bit ironic that Dan Savage would behave like a classless moron and bully when speaking out against bullying. Rather than inspire positive change he engages in the same type of bull**** he pretends to bemoan. Then we have our own "gimmesomeclassbecauselordknowsthatswhatIlackm ost" attacking a young lady here who has consistently presented herself and her arguments in a positive manner. He 'savages' her because she doesnt espouse HIS kind of angry militant hate filled intolerant rhetoric...hows that for some serious ****ing irony.

    You are presuming these Christian students attacked someone based on the existence of Bible passages.

    ...but absolutely correct.

    the Hypocrisy of those who want to live by the Bible when it comes to homosexuality but ignore 99% of all the other rules & regulations, is breathtaking.
    If that's it, it wasn't hardcore or offensive and slightly "in your face". Bah...if we're going to go crazy for people "slamming" religion, or "bullying" theists, then let's make a good show about it. That clip was mostly just calm statements.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
