    Show me where in the article these school kids were belittling gays? Thanks.

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

    Stop playing it cute on gay rights

    Obama's Gay Rights Evolution Is on Hold

    "verbally abusing children", is a nice use of words. When some teenagers are offended by the speech of a gay-rights advocate, they are "children". If a teenager commits a crime, they are often charged as "adults". So which is it? Where is the line between 'child' and adult?


    Again, what does that have to do with this thread?

    Amazing, don't you think?

    I've stated here before, I was raised by an athiest, so I really don't care what folks believe. You like it ,I like it for you. I will draw the line at bashing and abuse of people because they believe in "whatever". Religion doesn't scrare me like it does other "non-believers", thus I have to think they not as secure in their "non-belief" as they think they are.

    It's the nature of the beast. Also, the abuse from Catholic priests and Dan is very different.

    Bullying is an act of repeated aggressive behavior in order to intentionally hurt another person, physically or mentally. Bullying is characterized by an individual behaving in a certain way to gain power over another person.[16]
    Norwegian researcher Dan Olweus defines bullying as when a person is
    "exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons." He defines negative action as "when a person intentionally inflicts injury or discomfort upon another person, through physical contact, through words or in other ways".
    Hmmm.....looks like the one time incident that Savage is accused of.....doesn't fit the standard.
