    I hate how the gay thing has hijacked the anti-bullying movement. Bullying against gays is a serious problem. That said, you can have beliefs against homosexuality without being a bully.

    I just reconnected with a high school friend of mine the other day. He was rumored to be gay in high school and therefore bullied. He left that school for an ultra holiness school and got along just fine.

    People use religion as an excuse to bully. I say we file charges against bullies for harassment.

    I read it. It seems to me Savage knows nothing of the Bible.

    And that puke was there to speak about bullying. Not to turn it into some anti-Christian woe is me gay thing. Being bullied for being gay is about 30th on the list of "Things people are bullied for".

    It was NOT bullshit in Biblical times to prohibit the eating of shellfish. They were pretty much available in areas that were polluted by human waste back then. Technology had not developed to the point of having shellfish being safe to eat. Many such things are found in the Bible.

    Upon closer examination, nearly all of the rules and things you cite had a specific purpose - and helped to keep the population healthy and civil.

    Times have changed and technology has helped us deal with some of the issues, but the social ills many of your cited instances are STILL detrimental to society today.

    I'm not quite sure that he meant it that way, but I agree with you in a general sense. I don't believe in the 2 wrongs theory and I don't believe in an eye for an eye or any of that.

    Dan Savage is the lowlife who joined the Bauer campaign in 2000 under false pretenses. He had the flu, and planned to infect as many Republicans as he could while he worked there. From his column on the subject:

    "Gary is having a press conference today at the World War II memorial by the state capitol," Andy tells me when I arrive the next day for my second shift at Bauer 2000 headquarters. "We'd like to have a crowd of supporters there." Andy hands me a list of phone numbers and shows me to a phone; he also tells me to stop by the conference. "Grab my arm," he says, "and I'll make sure you get to meet Gary."

    An hour and a half later, most everyone has left the offices for a pizza party. I am alone, like Cinderella after her sisters trotted off to the ball. My nose is running like a faucet, so I'm not too upset at missing the pizza. Besides, I've got work to do.

    I go around the room licking doorknobs. They are filthy, no doubt, but there isn't time to find a rag to spit on. If for some reason I don't manage to get a pen from my mouth to Gary's hands at the conference, I want to seed his office with germs, get as many of his people sick as I can, and hopefully one of them will infect the candidate. I lick office doorknobs, bathroom doorknobs. When that's done, I start on the staplers, phones, and computer keyboards. Then I stand in the kitchen and lick the rims of all the clean coffee cups drying in the rack. I grab my coat and head out.

    I show up at the war memorial press conference, but the turnout is skimpy. There are about two dozen people here, mostly campaign staffers and their families. My phone efforts have failed, but Andy claps me on the back anyway, hands me a Bauer sign, and tells me to stand behind the podium with the rest of the crowd. It's freezing cold and windy. Waiting for Gary, I take my pen out of my pocket and put it in my mouth. This is it, my one shot at the candidate. I chew the pen, cracking the plastic shaft. Gary arrives, toddles up to the podium, and makes some brief remarks about Red China. As he steps away, I step toward him.

    "This is my son," I say, handing him a photograph. "Can I have your autograph?" Bauer gives me an odd look; I need to give him a little more. "I talked his mother out of aborting him. You're my hero, Mr. Bauer."

    He looks at me with his little bug eyes, and breaks into a wide smile. "Good for you," Gary says. "That's wonderful."

    He takes the picture, and I pull the pen out of my mouth and hand it to him. Score! My bodily fluids -- flu bugs and all -- are all over his hand! When he tries to sign, no ink comes out. Gary looks up at the cameras and says, "Looks like everything is frozen." He grabs a poster and scribbles on it to get the ink flowing, then signs the picture. He hands me my pen, and starts to walk toward his van. He stops to answer a reporter's question, and I see him run a finger under his nose. Perfect.

    I didn't need to lick all those doorknobs after all.
    Imagine if an elderly volunteer had contracted the flu and died as a result of Savage's depraved indifference.

    Not so much. You're defending the acts of a bully. And whats more ironic is he's supposed to be talking about anti-bullying.

    Once again Savage displays the typical Libtard hypocrisy...as are you...which means that it's ok to bash and bully anon who doesn't agree with your dogma.

    Not in the slightest. I simply said that one facet he happens to have a point. Some christians do use their faith as an excuse to be a bully.

    Did you totally skip the part where I said what Savage is doing is counterproductive to his cause?

    So, it would be okay if it advanced his cause?

    With respect, you and tx seem to be missing my point. What I'm saying is that if Dan Savage really did care about gay teens being bullied, he would a) tell bullied kids that they're not alone and help is out there if they want it. And b) Respectfully talk to christian youth about tolerating(not accepting, mind you) those that are different from them and not using the bible as a weapon
