In our society today it is an amazing thing in which we find the militant homosexual community calling for special rights, talking about tolerance, accusing others who disagree with their choice of lifestyle and perversion of the God ordained means of sexuality and marriage. Yet on the other hand they are the ones who are most hypocritical and intolerant.
One such example is Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project. His “project” is a campaign of anti-bullying of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgendered) teens. Apparently, his anti-bullying though does not work when it comes to Christians who believe the Bible. There seems to be an “open season” to bully those that believe the Bible. While he demands that others, specifically Bible believing Christians, stop bullying those engaged in the perverse lifestyle of homosexuality, lesbianism, transgender, and bi-sexuality, he has no problem in bullying them.
At a speech he delivered at the National High School Journalism Conference, sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association, Mr. Savage just could not tame his tongue and demonstrated why militant homosexuals should not be taken seriously when they cry about being bullied, when they cry “intolerance” and when they cry “hate speech”. With that said, homosexuality itself should be taken very seriously as it has very serious implications, both temporal and eternal.
Dan Savage’s remarks were so unprofessional and so full of hate and mockery that upwards of 100 students got up and walked out. In fact, Rick Tuttle, the journalism advisor for Sutter Union High School in California said that the speech was not about anti-bullying, but “turned into a pointed attack on Christian beliefs.”
Tuttle went on to say that the speech was laced with vulgarities and “sexual innuendo not appropriate for this age group.
According to one 17 year old girl who was in attendance, “The first thing he told the audience was, ‘I hope you’re all using birth control. He said there are people using the Bible as an excuse for gay bullying, because it says in Leviticus and Romans that being gay is wrong. Right after that, he said we can ignore all the (expletive deleted) in the Bible.”
As many students got up and walked out, Savage heckled them and said they were “pansy-assed.” Now you let a Bible believing Christian speak of the sin of homosexuality in a setting like that and you will hear the cries of the depraved homosexual community, along with those who stand with them, cry for arrests for “hate speech.” Somehow, truth is intolerable, while lies and sexual perversion are supposed to be tolerable.
“You can tell the Bible guys in the hall they can come back now because I’m done beating up the Bible,” Savage said as other students cheered. “It’s funny as someone who is on the receiving end of beatings that are justified by the Bible how pansy-assed people react when you push back.”
So, in this one sentence what we find out is that Dan Savage and his organization are nothing more than flaming hypocrites. They claim to be an anti-bullying organization, while at the same time taking an opportunity given to them to bully others.
Savage, following the “lecture” said, “But I have a right to defend myself and to point out the hypocrisy of people who justify anti-gay bigotry by pointing to the Bible and insisting we must live by the code of Leviticus on this one issue and no other.” The problem was no one was attacking him. I for one would clearly say that Mr. Savage has the right to defend himself should he be attacked by anyone, but that was not taking place here. In fact, the only one attacking was Mr. Savage. He was not defending. He was on the offense, and yet here he is, like a good liberal, playing the victim. He doesn’t want to be responsible for his actions, but he wants to blame others.
I can tell you what would have taken place at the school I attended if a person like Dan Savage had taken to the stage: He would have been removed as soon as he began such comments. In fact, at the school I attended neither he, nor anyone from his organization would have been allowed to attend because it would have been recognized that they were sexual deviants who were seeking to warp the minds of young impressionable people. It seems those days are long gone in some areas of our country and we should desire to have them return once again.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
