Dan Savage Ruffles Christian Feathers With “Bull$hit In The Bible” Comments
Last week Dan Savage, creator of the “It Gets Better” movement, was a keynote speaker at the National High School Journalist Conference in Seattle. Savage has never been shy about voicing his displeasure with conservative Christian values in this country and used his time on the podium to share his feelings about the influence of Christianity on teen bullying.
Savage’s comments resulted in a number of attendees leaving the room in protest which prompted him to later comment the following:
Dan has never been one to sugarcoat things. While I may not agree with everything he says, I strongly agree with his point here. If people are going to point to the Bible to back up their discrimination against gays and lesbians, they may not disqualify the other morals simply because they don’t work for them.
What do you think about Dan Savage’s speech? Was he out of line by saying this to an audience of high school kids?
