I ran across this blog from Samuel Gonzales about Dan Savage and some remarks he said at a High School Journalism Convention. It got me to thinking and it prompted me to write these Notes on Slavery and Race
I applaud the students that had the courage to walk out of the talk. As for the other students that cheered and applauded Mr. Savage’s anti-Christian remarks, well, we’ll just have to pray for them.
Enjoy the blog

There’s one truism about Liberals, they really don’t take the Bible seriously and only pay lip service to it to keep people from thinking they’re undercover atheists. Then you have Libs like Dan Savage who have a deep contempt for people of faith as you’ll see in this video.
What’s really alarming is how many students stayed to listen and cheer to this contemptful speech against faith beliefs.
NewsBusters reports Dan Savage, the controversial sex advice columnist and noted anti-bullying activist, caused quite a commotion at a high school journalism convention in Seattle two weeks ago when he actually cursed at the youth audience as he spoke negatively about the Bible.
Citizen Link reported April 18 (video also follows with commentary, serious vulgarity warning):
A group of high school journalism students attending a conference called “Journalism on the Edge” in Seattle over the weekend felt they were pushed over the edge by syndicated sex advice columnist Dan Savage.
Savage, the creator of the two-year-old It Gets Better Project, which encourages teens struggling with same-sex attractions to embrace homosexuality, was invited to give a keynote address last Friday at the JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention.
Students were expecting him to talk about bullying. But they also got an earful about birth control, sex, and Savage’s opinions on the Bible.
A 17-year-old from California who was attending with half a dozen other students from her high school yearbook staff, was one of several students to walk out in the middle of Savage’s speech.
“The first thing he told the audience was, ‘I hope you’re all using birth control!’ ” she recalled. Then “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.
