Dan Savage Bullies Christian HS Students Curses Bible Talks About his Parter's Package
As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy asses.”More here and here.
The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called “Savage Love.”
Savage, and his husband, were also guests at the White House for President Obama’s 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception. He was also invited to a White House anti-bullying conference.
Savage was supposed to be delivering a speech about anti-bullying at the National High School Journalism Conference sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. But it turned into an episode of Christian-bashing.
Rick Tuttle, the journalism advisor for Sutter Union High School in California, was among several thousand people in the audience. He said they thought the speech was one thing – but it turned into something else.
“I thought this would be about anti-bullying,” Tuttle told Fox news. “It turned into a pointed attack on Christian beliefs.”
I find it odd that he's asked to speak about bullying issues. His advocacy for gay issues and his open hostility towards conservatives, republicans and people of all faiths is well known and easily available on his Wiki page.

I wish the Republicans were all fucking dead..But that's how the leftist education clique works. They will excuse hatred and bullying so long as its against "the other".
Claims of ignorance about Dan Savages past by these educators are almost laughable. He's even been invited into Obama's white house and praised by the administration for his "work". But they didn't know he was an asshole? Right.
