    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.
    Oh, kid, you have lots of questions, you just don't like the answers.

    And you keep avoiding the reasons why they walked out....because again, you don't like the reason.

    Oh, we already established that some were adults, and depending on the state, over the age of consent. I don't have to provide the exact number.

    Your kidding right? The article said the school kids were from a Christian school. Didn't you read the OP?

    I could give a rat's butt if they were Christian, athiest, Muslim, Jewish, etc., the Savage guy was wrong for bullying anyone in the audience. Especially since he was supposed to be giving an anti-bullying talk. He, IMO, let his hatred for religion/Christians do his talking for him.

    No - wide ranging assumptions are almost always wrong. If a xian says something, it may or may not be abusive, depends on context. If a gay says or does something it may or may not be abusive, more often depends on the listener plus context.

    Can "blacks" be racist? A better usage is to say, Can black people be racist? Why yes they can and I have experienced it in other countries. I grew up in a small country with a black majority population although true power still remained in the hands of those of European descent.

    People, no matter their colour or religious beliefs can be assholes or they can be saints. The problem I see far too often, is found with those who will cast blame on every member of a group when only a few of the group are despicable human beings.

    I suggest you read through the thread and find out.

    (hint: The majority accept that is was because their faith was challenged)

    It's obvious.

    The Christian kids are responsible for all the gay bullying and suicides, so they have no right to civilly leave when berated by a nasty activist. No, these Christian students are stupid and irrational, so they should just take it and say nothing. If you're gay and offended, it's A-OK to walk out, but if you're a Christian, ha, **** that. Your feelings mean nothing, 'cause it's just a book.

    Wrong - Billy. The kids attend a public high school in Sutter California.

    Savage's "hatred for religion/Christians"? or his dislike of those who will claim their beliefs are based on one part of a holy text while ignoring other parts of the same book?

    Really? Does it happen in your church?
