As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy a–ed.”
The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. …
Savage was supposed to be delivering a speech about anti-bullying at the National High School Journalism Conference sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. But it turned into an episode of Christian-bashing.
Here’s one reaction from a school advisor, Rick Tuttle, who was there:
“I thought this would be about anti-bullying. It turned into a pointed attack on Christian beliefs.”
“It became hostile. It felt hostile as we were sitting in the audience – especially towards Christians who espouse beliefs that he was literally taking on.” …
“There were Christian schools who went to the conference. To have this happen was disappointing and shocking.”
And for some of his students – they felt like the anti-bullying activist was in fact – the bully.
Response: This exposes one of the new Gay agenda narratives that blames Biblical Christianity for bullying. In the process of this event, the anti-bullying activist bashed Christian students and obviously became a bully himself.
This is the second time I have run across a gay attack on Christianity in the name of bullying. Recently a play in San Francisco was filmed in order to supposedly combat bullying- “Corpus Christi: Playing With Redemption.” The play and documentary depicts Jesus and his apostles in homosexual relationships.
Here’s another reaction to this event from Candi Cushman of CitizenLink:
“Using profanity to deride the bible – and then mocking the Christian students after they left the room — is obviously a form of bullying and name-calling. This illustrates perfectly what we’ve been saying all along: Too many times in the name of ‘tolerance,’ Christian students find their faith being openly mocked and belittled in educational environments.”
So here’s the new narrative- Biblical Christianity as an evil that needs to be overcome in order to get rid of bullying. Only problem, most of the kids that are bullied are not homosexual and very few if any of the bullies are committed Christians.
Christians need to combat this new narrative/dictum before it becomes an official part of the current culture of political correctness. *Top
