    Uh...no Yoda...I was DIRECTLY telling you that those who walked out "refused the challenge to their beliefs".

    Now it is your turn to ignore this part of the story and revert back to protecting the children...

    Now, now Gimmie. The kids came because their teacher signed them up. You are assuming they came to "challenge their beliefs", yes? Was that in the article, no.


    What do you know about the "kids belief"? I don't think the article mentioned anything other than the kids came from a Christian school. Like I've pointed out before, there are 400+ religions, most are Christian and they all choose what they believe, so which one were these kids from?

    So you are projecting what you want the kids to have been there for and what the debate should be about, yes? Does that do it for you? Good!

    Sorry but if those "kids" cant handle "pansy ass", they're going to have a real hard time in life as adults, and as journalists.

    Once again, kid, you refuse to follow up on the answer to your own question. The argument made throughout this thread is that the kisd walked out because they did not want to hear someone questioning/insulting/putting down/yadda yadda their faith. This has been said by conservatives and believers....and acknowledged by the liberals and moderates. If you want to argue that is NOT so, you have a big crowd to deal with.

    So again, you want proof that they walked because their faith was questioned, just look at the vast majority that believe it is so.

    Further, these were students from all over the nation, they signed themselves up....it wasn't a class outing.

    I NEVER assumed they came to have their faith challenged, that is another bit of straw from you. They came to hear a lecture about countering bullying though social media techniques, "edgy" media sources and "edgy" media producers.

    Again, the question you brought up that you are now trying to distract from is "who are the kids that had their faith challenged?" The answer again is "the HS kids that walked out". That answer is NOT "reading between the lines", it is a direct answer to your question, an answer you can't handle.

    Maybe it's not about "handling" name-calling. Why should anybody, adult or teen, sit and be harangued? We each have the right to choose what we will dignify. Nobody's heard the entire speech, only snippets, so I don't know whether I would've walked out. I might have; I'm not a fan of dull invective or captive audiences either.

    Raise your hand if you've taken journo courses.

    Raise your hand if you've ever been a working journalist.

    And then we can talk about what a working journalist does and the difference between scooping a story and attending a conference as an audience participant.

    As for having a hard time as an adult if they can't "take" being called names, let me admit that I am an adult who honestly can't imagine a professional setting in which I'm forced to endure an offensive diatribe. That's kind of an adult rule: You don't have to sit and take crap from anybody.

A gay man calling out a few teens who had their religious fee-fees hurt for refusing to listen to his speech - that ain't abuse


    Every day, Dan Savage deals with the horrific results of bigoted teens abusing gay, and sometimes they are perceived as gay even though they are straight, classmates - so I think he may have a bit more experience with true abuse than most commenters in this thread.
    So, basically if a Christian does it...it's abuse. If a homosexual does it...it's not abuse. That about cover it? I bet you think blacks can't be racist, too, right?

    You sound like Sarah Palin after the Letterman thing, "school children", playing on sympathies, trying to paint a false picture.

    The kids who refuse to challenge their own beliefs and put scripture in a logical historical context are cowards.
    They were school children. They were minors...under age.

    I guess when people take general comments about Biblical hypocrisy personally, they probably will take other commentary personally....and won't make very good journalists....since journalism requires a modicum of objectiveness and neutrality.
