Dan Savage stands by his statement that anti-gay passages in The Bible are bullish**.
Dan Savage is standing by his comment that “we can learn to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about gay people” at a recent conference for high school students, a line that prompted some to walk out and spurred intense online debate:
In a blog post on Sunday, Savage wrote that his remark at a conference for the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association was “being spun as an attack on Christianity. Which is bullshhh… which is untrue.”
Many students reportedly felt Savage was attacking them as Christians, but Savage maintains that the attack was specifically on those who are against anti-bullying programs that try to prevent bullying against gay students based upon the foundation that The Bible calls homosexuality a sin.
What do you think? Was Savage out of line speaking like this in front of high school students? Or are his comments being used as just another way to dismiss Savage because of his sexuality?
