    I can't believe people actually support this guy...

    If the tables were turned I'm sure many who support this guy would have the opposite opinion.

    On this thread I have posted JES/NSPA links including the note about Savage and his topic in the published program.

    When I retired I was security in an alternative hs for kids that got tossed from reg HS...it was a cess pool of bullies...and there was plenty of prey...and the two homosexual kids that I was told to keep a more keen eye on...werent bothered at all...the most unattractive poorly dressed girls were literally bruatalized if I and my two guys werent around...you would find them crying...other girls beating on them and berating them every chance they got...and then there were the weaker boys that no one liked....BULLYING is not homosexual specific nor is it Predominent with them
    Bullying has happened since they created kids...and its no worse today than it was in the 60s or 70s....its that we the adults have alot less control over it today...
    Where have I ever stated that homosexuals are bullied more than others?
    Please do not attribute statements to me that I have never made.

    Bullies target people who are weaker than them.That is the cowardly nature of bullies.I was bullied for being one of the smaller kids in school until my father enrolled me in tae kwon do.After knocking out Billy Maldanado when he tried to shake me down for my lunch money with a round house kick in 10th grade,no one has ever bullied me again.
    I made sure my daughters all learned martial arts when they were young.And I made damn sure to teach me daughters not to bully others.

    And at least you could have answered the question I asked in the post of mine you quoted:

    He pointed out how stupid it is to cling to just one to justify bullying.

    It's BULLPUCKY to use the bible as tool for modern life and sexuality issues. Use it has compass to check your compassion for others. Your UNCONDITIONAL love for others. Fine. But don't use a bible a social science textbook.








    Not plain and simple at all.

    He challenged their beliefs. Today's coddled kids aren't used to a strong speaker getting in their face.

    Many, many in the audience applauded an cheered.... it was just handful of sheep that scurried away because the LOGIC DOES NOT COMPUTE....
    Hazlnut is not in a position to dictate what the bible can and cannot be used for in another persons life.

    you and Savage need to keep that sort of arrogance in check.... neither of you posses ecumenical authority on anything concerning religion.

    as an aside, I happen to find the using of the bible to hate people extremely disconcerting , counterproductive, and unchristian-like.... but i cannot go as far as saying that people should use the bible how I want them to use it, and no other way.


    but it's clear that you think being an asshole to high school kids who are religious is a good thing... and , needless to say, I disagree with that sentiment very strongly.
    if one do not possess the character to teach young students in a productive ,non-combative, fashion, they probably should not be around young people at all.... they are not a viable role model, instructor, teacher, or mentor....they are just an asshole with a microphone.

    And yet you just avoided stating or restating what the theme of the symposium was.

    I'll wait.

    Sometimes it is harder to be kind than it is to be right.

    Savage, or anyone else, CAN be critical of the use of parts of the Bible for persecuting homosexuals.

    It depends on what "turning the tables" means.

    Are you an authority on authority? Because if you aren't, then how can you speak on the issue of authority?

    No.

    It means I won't associate with them, if anything I am going a different road, not forcing them to take a different path.
    In other words, like a pansy, you walked out.
