KIDS". To believe that he did is a fine example of just what his speech was about. Other video clips show that his speech was well received by the majority of students attending.

    It has been noted previously that the walkout looked "pre-planned". Others have denied this was possible because nobody knew what his speech would say prior to its beginning but as Savage is a well-known and outspoken gay rights advocate, the walkout could have been planned without regard to his actual words.
    Upset? of course not. Im pointing out that the asshole used a venue on bullying to attack a bunch of high school kids (using derogatory effiminate comments...another classic) and a bunch of like minded bitter angry hate filled little trolls are supporting his action.

    What's sad.... is all the outrage over Dan Savages words towards kids but very little over the harsh, belittling words directed at gays constantly. Why? Because they're "filtered through Jesus" and that somehow makes it okay. I wonder how many of these kids Dan Savage spoke to will commit suicide because of what he said....

    Well now...see? If the asshole hadnt used a forum AGAINST bullying to launch an attack against people he knows nothing about and if the mindless little trolls didnt similarly launch their own little bigoted attacks on people they truly know nothing about then the topic of bullying could have been effectively addressed. But that wasnt the assholes intent, now was it. And it remains pathetic that people still excuse and justify his actions because some gay kids get harassed by others that happen to be 'Christian' and of COURSE thats just happening everywhere. Thats lie #2. The main reason for your shrill little attacks on "Christians" is the same as every other person here...because many Christians can be accepting, loving, tolerant, supportive and yet still disagree with gay marriage. And at the end of the day...that is ALL this whole thing is about.

    Clearly you have comprehension issues...Or perhaps its your psychotic anger problem that's preventing understanding ...several times Ive stated that I dont care if people are against gays...when they allow those personal feelings to interfere with legislation, then I have a problem with it.

    Again, I wonder how many of those kids will commit suicide because of what Dan said?

    And if you're a "christian" you're a LOUSY example of one. Go look in the mirror the next time you flip out over someone having an issue with Christianity. You make FOOL of Jesus.

    Yep...I sure have some work to do...but my 'comprehension' is spot on. And dont worry...you are pretty easily 'understood'. But hey...as soon as you and the rest of your vewy vewy angwy liberal brethren launch your daily diatribes against democrats and all the other groups that oppose gay marriage you might begin to have the first shred of credibility and not simply be a bunch of mindless partisan hypocrites.

    It being "hypocrisy" is an opinion. You, or he, claiming that a person's beleifs are "hypocricy" is bullying. Calling them "pansy-assed" for simply getting up and leaving, is bullying (not to mention arrogant).

    That doesn't mean his approach was right. My post was largely about not filtering hate thought Jesus...one line was about Dan. And really, I dont care what YOU think of ME. You're merely a poster on a thread and I have no intention of ever knowing you...my opinion is just that, an opinion. I wonder though, do you experience equal outrage when gay kids are bullied and called disgusting names (in the name of God)? Or is this one sided?

    You seem less psychotic this morning....did you pray?
    This thread is about a specific incident, and it seems you are hijacking it to spout an anti-Christian message. Perhaps you could just focus on the issue rather than ridiculing a people's views.

    By taking advantage of a captive audience to preach an anti-Christian message, and verbally abusing children.

    Obviously you're not reading some of the 'reliably liberal' blogs because you would find lots of attacks against Dems - including the President - for not doing enough in the fight over gay marriage.

    Criticism mounts over Obama punt on gay Exec Order. NYT calls it "cynical hedge"

    Stop playing it cute on gay rights
