Dan Savage was giving a lecture at the National High School Journalist Conference in Seattle wherein he said:
People often say that they can’t help with the anti-gay bullying acts because it says right there in Leviticus, it says right there in Timothy, it says right there in Timothy, it says right there in Romans, that being gay is wrong.
We can learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible and what it says about gay people,
Thereupon, a few Christian students walked out. Mr Savage responded:
It’s funny. As someone who’s on the receiving end of
beatings that are justified by the bible, how pansy-assed some people
react when you push back.
