In an ironic twist, the nations top gay bullying opponent called Christian students pansies for walking out of his anti-bullying speech when he insulted the Bible, according to one report.
Karla Dial of CitizenLink reported Wednesday that controversial syndicated columnist Dan Savage of the It Gets Better Project, a popular Internet-based campaign encouraging respect for homosexuality among youths, made the remarks during a journalism conference for students in Seattle.
One source, a 17-year-old student from California, told CitizenLink that Savage called her and other Christian students pansies after they walked out of his anti-bullying speech when he referred to the Bibles injunctions against homosexuality as B.S.
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 B.S. in the Bible, she said.
I was thinking, This is not going a good direction at all, Then he started going off about the Bible. He said somehow the Bible was pro-slavery. Im really shy. Im not really someone to, like, stir up anything. But all of a sudden I just blurted out, Thats bull!
The students father, a public school teacher, told CitizenLink that Savages own behavior was bullying to the students who were not yet college-age.
If Dan Savage was a teacher, theyd suspend him without pay for this behavior, he said. He didnt take account of who his audience was. If he was doing this with a bunch of college journalism kids, that would be a different story thats more rough and tumble. How many of the kids who didnt walk out felt backed into a corner? To me, thats bullying behavior. It has all the symptoms, as far as Im concerned.

Any school that would invite the degenerate Dan Savage to speak deserves to be shut down immediatley.
LOL There the Left goes again talking about themselves.
So then a highly appropriate punch in your arrogant, fairy nose, would then not have been bullying, right?
Most of these so-called “Anti-Bullying” activists are just upset that they’re not the ones doing the bullying.
Life imitating South Park
In an ironic twist, the nation's top "gay bullying" opponent called Christian students "pansies" for walking out of his anti-bullying speech when he insulted the Bible...He's a demagogue, and like all demagogues, he doesn't stop talking until he finds something that works, or until someone gives him a fat lip in front of a crowd.
“encouraging respect for homosexuality”
What a bunch of bs. Respect a perversion? What next?
The entire “anti-bullying” campaign is designed to silence Christians from speaking out against the debauchery the liberals are encouraging in society.
And yes, the libs are being bullies about it.
Better to be a “pansy” than a total perversion of nature.
THis is the guy who went around licking doorknobs at Dan Quayle’s campaign headquarters in order to spread disease.
I'm confused... isn't that BULLYING??
If you watch network TV you'll notice today's kids are being indoctrinated to find homosexuality as normal as breathing. Every show has a gay character who is never shunned, always accepted. The Gay Agenda is like communism, they will never give up; they will push and push until you give in. What next? Polygamy, Incest, Beastiality...name a perversion.
I’m pretty sure it was Gary Bauer not Dan Quayle. And you’re right: he was the one. A new best friend of the equally despicable Andrew (”I’m never gonna get deported”) Sullivan.
When you call people derogator7y names and try to intimidate them isn’t that called bullying?
It will probably be polygamy next according to this one:
Comments on the It Gets Better Facebook:
>>My heart goes out to those Christian teens that were bullied in front of their peers. Good for them for being strong - so sorry they had to experience bullying at the hands of the self-proclaimed “expert”. We should see nothing less than a public apology from whoever this Dan Savage is and the NSPA. And they should NEVER have him speak again - he is clearly not the expert on anti-bullying. He might be an expert on being gay, but a true expert that can practice what he preaches (its called character) should address the kids in the future. At least now the teachers know and should NEVER take their students to a conference where their students can be abused.
>>As a gay Christian, I’m going to ask the leader of this movement directly, though I know he would never actually answer:
Is it okay to bash Christians, even if they’re also gay? Because you just bullied ME - and the hundreds of thousands of gay Christians all over the world with your inability to rein in your own hatred and anger toward a group of people.
Bullying, which you’ve worked so hard to fight, has now been exhibited by YOU. Really, Dan Savage??
I’ve read through a small portion of the comments from Christians who have posted on here, and you have just knocked your own cause backward several years.
>>Savage is a coward and hypocrite of the highest order. Why doesn’t he take on Islam in public—after all how many gays have died in Sharia law countries? I personally challeneg Savage and his cowardly minions to take on Islam in public, of course you might want to talk to Salmen Rushdie first and find out all the good hiding places.
>>I understand that you don’t have any use for the Bible, but one concept you surely should ponder is, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”—you have lost a lot of credibility as a spokesperson for anti-bullying with your recent keynote speech—which was clearly bullying teenagers you were there to inspire. Did you really think you were earning “cool points” hurling ridicule at those who didn’t agree with you and were willing to demonstrate that, peacefully and without interrupting you? You may have hurt your cause more than helped it, sir.
