He is also the person responsible for establishing the term "santorum" on google as relating to a by product of anal sex. Is this really the type of person that belongs in our schools instructing our children?
    And equating the believing and teaching of homosexuality as immoral to beating people is an outrageous absurdity. No true Christian would ever strike, mock or denigrate anyone for living what they considered a sinful lifestyle. Mr. Savage has proven once again that he does not deserve access to school children.
    The problem with bullying has nothing to do with what kids think, it's the lazy teachers who let the inmates run the prison. When I was in grade school IN THE 80'S whenever there was a fight all the adults either stood around or walked by like they didn't give a ****.

    Yes they were being hypersensitive, just sit down and listen, you don't have to walk out acting like a child believing you can only hear stuff that makes you happy. The fact that people are offended is stupid, and makes me ****ing sad. I just wanna yank them by the collar and tell them to grow the **** up. I'm tired of people having this "oh I'm offended more" war, it lowers discourse, and keeps us from actually talking about anything with substance. **** being offended, it's stupid, gets us nowhere and is childish. We as a society need to grow the **** up.

    Really? I would walk out. Saying that we need to "ignore the bull**** in the Bible" and making comments about those walking out is not acceptable. Such a crude and ignorant individual doesn't deserve my attention and nor will I give it to him. What if the table was turned and someone was saying homosexuals are deranged pervs because the Bible says it's a sin (or at least in their interpretation, which the guy in the video is also giving his interpretation about scripture). Should people just sit through that and not be offended? The one who needs to grow the **** up is the speaker in the video, not the students who walked out. His whole premise was to be offensive from what I saw in the video. I know where you are coming from with hypersensitivity and I agree with your sentiment, but I don't think this is one of those cases.

    I would sit there, and probably laugh because he's so retarded, because choose to go, and I would probably try to talk to them if it was possible. The people who walked out need to grow the **** up, plain and simple. Like I said, **** being offended.

    I think there are valid reasons to be offended. I think this speaker was being blatantly disrespectful and offensive. Waking out can also be a form of protest against someone's message. This guy in my view has the same similar hatred that Fred Phelps does. I wouldn't sit through a speech by Phelps saying we should bully gay people and that God hates them. Likewise, I wouldn't sit through this moron's ignorant drivel nor give credibility to it. He doesn't deserve my attention or my presence.

    Yeah, but you choose to go there so why would you leave in the middle like a child?

    Agree he was being unnecesarily antagonistic to a group of HS kids...he could have said everything he did in an entirely enlightening way and got his message across...
