Dan Savage Apologizes For His Comments About Christianity
Mediaite ^ | 4/30/12 | Meenal Vamburka

Posted on 04/30/2012 8:00:52 PM PDT by Nachum

On Sunday, Dan Savage took to his blog to apologize for some controversial comments he made at an anti-bullying event. Savage said he shouldn’t have used the term “pansy-ass” and noted that he was not attacking Christianity, but rather, he was attacking hypocrisy. (Snip) People often point out that they can’t help it, they can’t help with the anti-gay bullying, because it says right there in Leviticus, it says right there in Timothy, it says right there in Romans that being gay is wrong. We can learn to ignore the bull**** in the Bible about gay people.

Nope...he WAS attacking christianity.

The bible is just never going to be changed to suit their needs.

It isn’t that theirs is the only sin listed in there....we all have our own sins listed in there too.
It’s just that they’d really like theirs to be redefined or removed.

Understated. He’s got a record for trying to spread the flu in 2008 in Des Moines by licking door knobs.

No, this just makes it worse. Now he’s lying to us and thinks we’re stupid enough to buy it.

He was honest the first time. He just doesn’t like the flak he’s getting as a consequence for his own vile hatred.

Talk about hypocrisy.

Dan Savage is an a-hole..he is just upset that he got caught, just like all progressives..they talk then they issue a phony apology. He is just saying what other far left progressive marxist freaks say all the time

Funny how an "anti-bullying" guy attacked Christians, and had the nerve to call them "pansies". Remember when Hillary was running for senator and Rick Lazio said "I'm not going to be a pansy!"

The gays went ape-poopy over him saying "pansy" as a so-callled perjorative.

Indeed, one doesn’t need the Bible to tell us homosexuality is a mental illness.

I knew some homosexuals in University. Some were intelligent and kind people, but all suffered greatly due to their homosexuality. They were immature, nervous, depressed, violent. I saw suicide attempts, addiction and extremely risky behavior.

Statistics (those released anyway) from Western countries show homosexual men in particular have life-spans 20-25 years shorter than average, due to disease, addiction and suicide.

Jesus did say to forgive your enemies who despitefully use you,

He also demonstrated that if people profane your Father, you can give them a good thrashing...that a believer should arm himself for worldly battle as well as heavenly, get a good blade even if you have to sell your clothes...and capital punishment for the corruptors of children.

The whole getting slapped twice stuff was more about rebel tactics when confronted by superior numbers...get tough, don’t sweat the psych, and turn the tables.

At least, that’s how I read it...your Holy Spirit Spectacles may differ ;^)

Example of hypocrite would be a person who was paid to discuss anti-bully behavior and then bullied some people from the pulpit.

With his moronic understanding of Christianity and scripture, he would do better to pick on some other religion, Islam, for instance.

Do you understand the fear here? It is simply this: Savage's problem isn't with Christians, it's with God, and it's a terrible thing to face.

You can see that he's close. He stated that there are "good pedophiles", meaning that there are those who are attracted to children who do not act on that temptation because they know it would be wrong. Resistance to temptation is a virtue, of course it is, and not just in Christianity.

And so what we have here is a gay activist who has come to the conclusion that resistance to a forbidden temptation is a virtue. That's what is going on in Savage's head at the moment. The rest is desperate denial. He will do anything to deny that homosexual urges fall under that category. And what he resents about Christians is that many of us believe precisely that. That may be many things, but it isn't hypocrisy.

When you get down to it, what’s this “guy’s” claim to fame, anyway? That he likes to suck **** and take it up the ***? Is that really what it takes to have some level of fame in this society, to get a megaphone to spout your bulls**t to the public?

He “ noted that he was not attacking Christianity, but rather, he was attacking hypocrisy”

One cannot help but wonder why he did not use Islam as an example as he attacked “hypocrisy”, there is a blatant anti homosexual school of thought among Muslims (except for where little boys are concerned)
Maybe next time he can point out which verses in the Koran that are Bulls**t, would he care to make that public? I think not, after all he is just an underfed, under exercised little pansy ass.
Please mind the tag line, it is a true story. I'll be happy to tell you about it.

That's pretty much it and he writes and talks about it. But Wiki says he's transphobic, he hates the transgendered. Hmm... A gay man that trashes Christians and the transgendered but is ok with his lifestyle. Just when you thought you'd heard it all. What do you call a Christian, transgendered hating, gay guy?

Could probably have kept him out of the schools if someone told them he's a tranny hater... A Christian hater... No one cares. Sad.

“With his moronic understanding of Christianity and scripture, he would do better to pick on some other religion, Islam, for instance.”

There is the Islam of rhetoric....and then there is the Islam of reality.

I'm in Afghanistan, and I have a unique “view” into everyday life here.

Homosexual activity is not uncommon and really not hidden.

Afghan men can be seen holding hands and flirting with one another rather frequently.

There is a customary embrace greeting, and then there is quite a different embrace given that can't be taken for anything else than what it appears.

Islam is a very pagan religion.

In the 90’s, I went to Montreal for training and there was an Iranian software engineer from California sitting next to me.

I had read that though Islam is the glue that binds, most Iranian villages still worship there ancient gods. As it is in most of the Islamic world.

So, I asked him about that and he said: “Yes”.

These pagan roots have always included homosexuality as normal, even pedophilia.....not to mention bestiality.

Mystery Babylon is alive and well in Islam.

Gay people are doing something that is wrong. That’s it!
Nothing else need be said. This is not from the bible. This is the intrinsic knowledge of the general population.

Politicians can pass laws against our feelings about perversion, but they cannot, in the end, change things.

Interesting! Dan Savage might enjoy hanging out there. ...Stories of pedophilia and bestiality in the world of Islam are plentiful. ...I knew about strange pagan and black magic practices among some of the Kurdish tribes, but wasn’t aware that Muslims would be willing to discuss the existence of other gods besides Allah. Allat was killed off long ago by Mohammad. Of course it would be difficult to remove Allah from the whole of paganism, no matter how much Judaism and Christianity were plagiarized. I’ve read some convincing arguments that linguistically Allah is derived from Enlil. In a convoluted way, that brings Enlil back to the prominence he enjoyed before the days of Nimrod. Indeed Mystery Babylon is alive and well. Thanks for the insight.
