    Re: Anti-Bullying Speaker Curses Christian Teens[W:165; 667]

    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.
    Oh you might have to if the job means you can feed yourself and your kids and keep a roof over your heads.

    Here's one fine example that turned out OK - in my opinion but it took years - and I'm sure that some will say it is "proof" for xians being persecuted in America
    New York Employment Law Firm Prevails on Behalf of Client, Wins 1.6M Award for Sexual Orientation Discrimination Case
    New York employment law attorney Derek T. Smith of the Derek T. Smith Law Group, P.C. successfully pursued a sexual orientation discrimination case on behalf of a Manhattan chef claiming her former employer harassed her for being a lesbian, winning her a total of 1.6M in damages
    ...
    The verdict report for Case 117115/2007, Mirella Salemi v. Gloria’s Tribeca, Inc. (d/b/a Mary Ann’s), et al, clarifies the harassment that Salemi faced on the job from 2004, when Globakar converted to Pentecostal Evangelical Christianity, up until she left in 2007. Every Wednesday, Globakar would lock the doors of the restaurant and force all the employees, including Salemi, to attend a prayer service from 3p.m. to 5p.m. that was conducted by members of his church. During that service, Globakar and his pastor would condemn homosexuality. In addition, according to the verdict report, Globakar handed out religious paraphernalia at work and used slurs against homosexuals on a regular basis. He allegedly told Salemi to become more “effeminate” in her behavior and clothing, get married to a man and have children, or else she would go to hell.
    ... Globakar himself testified that he regularly closed the restaurant for church meetings and considered homosexuality a sin “on par with murder,” and that being gay was “immoral, abnormal, unnatural, and similar to a mental illness,” and as such could be “cured” by prayer.
    Yet some will try to say that the xian students were "harassed and bullied" even though they had the option of simply walking out, while this xian business owner, who LOCKED his employees inside had every right to act as he did.

    So you're telling me you'd send your kids to a seminar/conference/lecture and it would be ok for "whoever" at the podium, starts calling your kids "pansy ass", just because they didn't like your kids religion/belief/whatever, yes?

    How would anyone know what the students beliefs were? Isn't that the argument you have been making?

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.




    No. I don't have any questions. You have questions Gimmie.

    I've said over and over and over what I thought of the whole mess. The speaker was an a**wipe bully, supposedly speaking against bullying, he offended the school kids, the kids walked out and left and that was the whole story.

    Vitriolic and abusive speech happens all the time in America, most often on Sundays from church pulpits. You know - one of the reasons for Dan Savage to speak at this conference was to point out how harmful such speech can be.

    If you are an adult in HS...you're stupid. Not to many stupid people become journalists.

    They were underage. Minors. Children.

    I've never heard such speach in Church, and I rather doubt you have either. That makes your statement rather bigoted...at the very least, prejudiced.

    Most kids graduate by 17...how many of the attendees where over the age of 18?
