Dan Savage Promotes Anti-Christian Evil
Illinois Family Institute ^ | 11-22-10 | Laurie Higgins

Posted on 11/23/2010 11:47:47 AM PST by mlizzy

Dan SavageNo matter what one thinks of the homosexuality-affirming "It Gets Better" project, do we really want the president of the United States to be associated with radical sex columnist Dan Savage, the creator of this campaign?

"It Gets Better" is the online video project that Chicago native Dan Savage created in which he seeks to end bullying by affirming homosexuality. Joining him in this effort are Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Kathleen Sebelius, Nancy Pelosi, and Hillary Clinton.

Savage--the even more offensive doppelganger of our Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings--celebrates homosexuality in general and his own in particular. He has chosen the unholy mission of normalizing homosexuality through the use of shockingly obscene and anti-Christian hate rhetoric. What's ironic in his anti-Christian demagoguery is the evident and embarrassing ignorance he demonstrates about even the most basic theological ideas.

But judge for yourselves whether this is the kind of person whose work a president of the United States or any decent person should endorse:

Dan Savage on how to come out to your Evangelical Family

Dan Savage on WTTW's Chicago Tonight (Scroll down to Wednesday, Nov.17, 2010 "Sex Columnist Dan Savage")

PU

Gray Rights Now!
In a vicious attempt to malign former senator, Rick Santorum, Dan Savage held a contest to come up with the following sick definition for the word, "santorum" and then created a website specifically for it: (WARNING-extremely offensive) www.spreadingsantorum.com

Here's what Savage, who with his partner Terry has adopted a boy, has to say about "three-way" sex:
I had "cheated" on Terry--but only in front of him, only with his permission, only with someone we both liked and trusted, only when we were in one city and our son was in another. So, yes, we've had a three-way--actually we've had a couple, and while three-ways barely register on the kink-o-meter anymore, they're considered the absolute height of kink for people like us--for parents, I mean, not for gay people. As parents we're not really supposed to be having sex with each other, much less have sex with someone else....

One was a nice French guy who looked like Tom Cruise. The other was with an ex-boyfriend of mine, a Microsoft millionaire who spent hundreds of thousands of dollars building a "playroom" in his basement--a kind of sex toy wonderland. Terry wanted to see this playroom for himself and so we went over for dinner...and one thing led to another...
Yes, this is the man that WTTW's Phil Ponce recently interviewed and whom the Chicago Humanities Festival thought worthy of an invitation to speak. And this is the man in whose project Obama, Biden, Sebelius, Pelosi, and Clinton are participating.

A life without bullying is most definitely a better life and one which every child deserves. But a life in which sin and immorality are affirmed and celebrated is not a better life. It is one that will lead to eternal separation from a just and Holy God.

Bill Ayers confessed that he engaged in partner swapping and homosexuality with others in the Weather Underground to "smash monogamy".

"Not supposed to..."

This isn't about "two people in love". This is about hedonism and the sex positive agenda of ending all moral judgments over any sexual pairing regardless of age, sex, relation, marital status, number, or species of partners.

If it feels good, do him.

“It gets better” well I guess it does—when you die. The hyphenated american that introduced me to the joys(barf) of gay sex told me If I did the world a favor and shot him with his own snub nosed .38 I’d go to jail and he’d be free. Either he would be dead— and free— or he would go to a hospital and be cared for by nurses and I’d go to jail to be surrounded by men like him. He suggested I should be a male
prostitute .He had enjoyed himself. And I had prostituted my self when I enlisted—eh? After bleeding from my anus for eight days, Being sewed up by Army surgeons who repaired the damage he had done. I spent nearly twenty years in self
induced drug abuse waiting to heal. But yeah it does get
better. I am not like the queer who raped and sodomized me for his pleasure. I am not like the homosexual dying from HIV AIDS with a colon he can’t control very well -both direct consequence to his choice of lifestyle. I am not like the evil Liar in the White House nor like the corrupt reprobates in Congress who would make us all like Sodom and like unto Gomorrah—all under the guise of progressivism....
I am married- with children ,and grandchildren and I am set free by my God and His Grace so in Christ Jesus yes it does get better— cause none of crap advocated by Obama-or
Congress or the homosexuals that control them means anything.I’m Free. And I will do whatever I think necessary to protect myself and my family. Why I would even kill or attempt it if ever one of the enemy wanted to attempt sodomy.If prevented before the infamous crime— they better
hope they kill me because I will come looking to even the score.

Homosexuality is an abomination. It always has been and always will be.

I do not tolerate it in any form and stridently refuse to use the term "gay" to describe this deviancy. Homosexuals are sad, miserable beings and are most certainly NOT gay. I make it a point to correct colleagues who refer to homosexuals as "gay".

Words have meaning!

No, I have my limits. The paragraph about the “three-way” was nauseating enough.

In my reserach about the homosexual agenda I’ve read a lot of stuff, and at this point, not sure if I can take any more. I don’t watch TV or movies or even read fiction (life’s too interesting and I have no time) so when I read strong stuff it really sticks in my mind...

If you think I should though, I will.

No, no, absolutely not. I could only click on one, and it’s really not necessary to see ... I read about a woman who accidentally saw pornographic material, and she went quickly to Confession because she couldn’t get the horrible image out of her mind (like you mentioned). After Confession, she was fine.

And for that you get accolades from all Christian Conservatives. If there was any implication in my response that I was critical of you about the word "gay", let me apologize as profusely as I can.

My intent was to emphasize that I abhor how homosexuals have perverted the meaning of a perfectly fine word. Of course, perversion is their stock in trade. They corrupt not only the English language but all within their sphere of influence.

Proof that porn is dangerous and harmful for sure.

I very much agree with you, little jeremiah, about the dangers and harm that are part and parcel of porn. And I'd like to get your (and a few others Texans whom I pinged) take on something that's interested me since the mid-90's.

As should be evident from my posting history (and my tagline), I hold the state of Texas in very high regard and an rightly proud of my home...with the exception of big, brightly-lit porn shop that greets visitors upon crossing the state line from the north.

When driving down I-35 (a major gateway artery) through Oklahoma into Texas, the VERY FIRST thing seen after crossing the Red River is that huge smut emporium!

What a welcome that is to my beloved state. :-(

I realize that business is business and porn selling is a legal enterprise. While I certainly don't advocate censorship or restrictive zoning, at the very least, my preference would be that the tacky smut peddler would have enough Texas Pride, decency and respect to relocate at least a few miles beyond the state line. In my opinion, I think a porn shop at the Texas state line gives those entering the state a very negative first impression of Texas.

What do you all think?

I've only been here for five years, and haven't had a reason to venture north to Oklahoma. I had no idea this shop was there.

You're right. It probably creates the wrong impression in visitors' minds, seeing that, right as they cross into Texas.

Getting the owner to relocate to somewhere less obvious would take somewhat of a sustained crusade, I would think. This isn't the sort of battle that's won in a week or two. Needs a lot of protests, letters to TV stations, Tourism Board, local public officials, city council, TV coverage, etc.

Folks in Texoma need to get motivated to do something about this, or nothing will happen.

I’m on IFI’s mailing list along with AFTAH’s (Americans for Truth About Homosexuality) so I get sent these links all the time, but I rarely post them because they are so troublesome and I can’t stand to look at the images either. This stuff impales itself in your mind.

Anyone selling porn already has no moral compass whatsoever, selling the filth and making a buck are all that such a person cares about.

Second, the only reason porn is legal is because of the commie founded ACLU, a leftist leaning SCOTUS, and porn producers; IIRC it was Larry Flynt who got the lawsuit going to get porn legalized.

For almost 200 years no constitutional scholars, nor the men who wrote it, thought that the First Amendment protected obscenity, pornography or strip clubs.

Thanks to the ACLU, porn producers and (IIRC) the same SCOTUS who legalized abortion, we now have tons of people who think that porn is intended to be Constitutionally protected free speech and should be legal.

Constitutionally speaking, it should not be legal.

Exactly. Images are much worse than reading about disgusting practices, it’s easier to skip over parts; plus as it is said, a picture is worth a thousand words.

It is very hard to erase strongly emotionally charged images from the mind.

Thanks for the thorough and very thoughtful response. Even here on FR, I see those (often of a libertarian bent) who defend the smut merchants from a laissez-faire free market business perspective. Like you, little jeremiah, I draw the line there and choose not to side with filth peddlers like Larry Flynt. Well, if that makes me a prude, then so be it.

I think it serves us well to remember one of the tenents of communism is to..."break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV."

I've only been here for five years, and haven't had a reason to venture north to Oklahoma. I had no idea this shop [smut store] was there.

The coordinates for the porn peddler's big, bold and brightly lit store are: 33.725957,-97.161419.

Check it out on a map with a satellite view. It's on the west side of I-35 and only about 500 feet south of the Red River. As the satellite image shows, it's right next to the interstate highway and it can't be missed when driving into Texas as this picture shows:

One interesting point is that the "Welcome to Texas" sign is located about 1/8-mile south of the pornographer's location. I surmise that Lone Star State isn't real proud of this business as the gateway to Texas. They may have put the "Welcome to Texas" sign so that people would think the obscenity merchant was in Oklahoma.

I’ve been on quite a few libertarian threads lately (last few weeks) and learned that the Real, Official, Signet Ring Libertarian Party Platform is pro-abortion, pro-every bit of “gay” agenda, as well of course as pro-prostitution, pro-drug, and pro-porn with no holds barred.

It’s very core is vice. It is another in a long line of utopian philosophies that can never, ever work, and never have. Only it is actually a lot worse than some of the historical ones.

Here's a great post: "On How To Defeat, Lust, Impurity and Pornography." I started a thread on it [long time ago], and the man who wrote it signed up on Free Republic to answer and issue commentary, but the thread got so ugly *in a hurry* I had to request it be pulled. You know, all those "I'd hit it" remarks and photos of unattractive "guilty" women (which the author felt were disrespectful in and of themselves, much like enjoying pornography is ultimately disrespectful towards women) and so on.

And I saw an article online recently that said the top sin confessed today [priests confirmed this if the study is correct] in the confessional has to do with pornography.

I know which place you’re referring to, and, yes, it’s an eyesore and embarrassment to the state. It seems that that’s also the way of things in the big towns and cities of Texas; enter Ft Worth/Tarrant Co from the west, and you see several XXX businesses on the Interstate. Same on the SE side and I-35W on the South. Why these are there to greet visitors and newcomers is beyond me.

Phew!

I had some trepidation in posting about this matter since I thought it would be perceived as "nanny statism" (especially considering my recent sign on date marks me as a clueless n00b here on FR). It is gratifying to realize that quite a few others agree that the XXX businesses, smut shops and stripper bars are an embarrassment to our great state. Yes such places are indeed legal and an unrestrained free market grants them as much right to exist as less tacky businesses.

On a lighter note, Tony Soprano's fictional Bada-Bing club is probably just fine and dandy for Lodi, New Jersey. That's just they way they are in Joisey. But I think we Texans are better than that! :-)

These shops don't embarrass me, as long as they're unobtrusively tucked away in an industrial zone. It's places like the one on the Texas/Oklahoma border that embarrass me.

As a member of The Real World, I understand that humans have their needs, and that they will fulfill them, no matter what artificial laws of men restrain them.

Folks simply need to exercise a little more common sense and discretion about where they do it.
