    Not all Christians believe that being gay is wrong, many do, but some don't and again, most don't bully gay people.

    He was bashing a large segment of people, using the same tactics a bully would.
    Character assassination and name calling.

    You're right, we do need to grow up.
    Let's first start with more tactful ways of addressing issues, rather than being a giant douche, as he was.
    That segment did nothing about talking about an issue of substance and even got the material wrong in the process. All of that in a high school, no less. Of course people left. I wouldn't want to listen to that crap either, and would sigh at the suggestion that I would be a sissy for not wanting to hear a rant from left-wing Ann Coulter.

    Well quite simply, did he really think he was going to win over people by insulting their beliefs and calling them names?
    Doubtful.

    The more likely answer is that he's a real life troll, with a microphone.
    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.

    From Dan Savage's twitter feed

    And I called actions pansy-assed, not persons. Still, I apologize. But not apologizing for challenging bible-based defense of homophobia.

    I am trying to find some evidence if this event was school sponsored. I know it was a convention for high school journalists but plenty of events are target to high school students that aren't school sponsored. Does anyone have a source that clarifies that?

    On one hand, if it was school sponsored then Savage was wrong. On the other hand, if these students walk away when they hear something offensive I hope they don't intend to pursue journalism in the real world.

    The speaker is part of the homosexual, non-white, atheist, metrosexual, sorta leftist group identity. He is saying he hates the heterosexual, white, non-atheist, can't dress to save your life, rightish group identity.

    He's saying, "I hate you." Well I hate you back, and I would like nothing better than for the other group identity to drop dead.

    Why is displaying hatred always considered "trolling"?

    I don't think Savage was trolling or baiting; I think he finally had a meltdown.

    Anti-Bullying Speaker Curses Christian Teens | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes
    Hypocrisy hurts causes.It is despicable for this degenerate to take a serious cause and to attack a religious group.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I agree with Fiddy, Harry, digs, etc. His behavior was atrocious. Hypothetically, you're not going to attract flies with strong vinegar like that. Dan Savage, imo, doesn't help his cause, but reinforces stereotypes. If I heard such drivel I'd leave too. That, or throw a soda.
