Columnist Dan Savage stands by comments on 'bulls**t in the Bible'

By Dan Gilgoff, CNN.com Religion Editor

(CNN) - Columnist and gay-rights advocate 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.”

“I was not attacking the faith in which I was raised," Savage wrote. "I was attacking the argument that gay people must be discriminated against — and anti-bullying programs that address anti-gay bullying should be blocked (or exceptions should be made for bullying 'motivated by faith') — because it says right there in the Bible that being gay is wrong.”

Some Christian students walked out of the Seattle speech, prompting another controversial line from Savage: “It’s funny to someone who is on the receiving end of beatings that are justified by the Bible how pansya**ed people react when you push back.”

CNN’s Belief Blog: The faith angles behind the biggest stories

Savage apologized for that specific remark in Sunday’s blog post, writing that his word choice “was insulting, it was name-calling, and it was wrong.”

One of the teachers attending the speech with his students told CNN’s Carol Costello on Monday that he was taken aback by the speech and that he supported the decision of some of his students to walk out of it.

“It took a real dark, hostile turn, certainly, as I saw it,” said Rick Tuttle, a teacher at Sutter Union High School in Southern California. “It became very hostile toward Christianity, to the point that many students did walk out, including some of my students.”

“They felt that they were attacked … a very pointed, direct attack on one particular group of students. It’s amazing that we go to an anti-bullying speech and one group of students is picked on in particular, with harsh, profane language.”

    Hey you Christian out there, how does it feel being on the receiving end of the stick. Not so good, huh? Pansy – pu**y is right. You can dish it out but you can't take it.

      Exactly! What about the part about women must have long hair and not dress like a man (pants, I presume). Let's all descriminate against them. Wait...no...let's pick and choose what we want to follow in the bible. That's what makes it such a joke.

      @Alice: Criticized? Yes. Discriminated against? No.

      I think everyone should be able to treat christians with the same unjustified bigotry that they use to discriminate against others.

      Alice.. the problem is that Christianity, as do most religions empower others to pick on a segment of society they decide is different,,, usually based on some interpretation in a book. Those that feel they are doing it for " god" and as such they are justified not thinking that these are fellow humans they are picking on or attacking.. It is thuggery pure and simple. Why do you think it is wrong for those folks to take a stand against an organised dislike?

      Stop it! This attack of yours on Christians is going to ruin your soul. I am sorry if you were hurt by a Christian but get some help.
      People pick on people that are different. In the animal kingdom other animals are acutely aware of what is not normal. Predators key in and separate and devour the easy pickings. You yourself take a second look when someone is not normal. Jesus said stop it but, Christians did not because they are human not because they are Christian.

      Fred.. what are you on about..it is not an attack on Christians.. I have pointed out that your particular believe allows attacks on individuals you deem as unworthy because of this god you cannot prove, allows it that as all.. muslims are the same way. Why would needed to been hurt to point that out..?

      Thanks, Christianity does not allow for attacks on others it is the opposite. We are to love even our enemy. I was thinking there must be a reason you think Christians attack and one would be if a well intended Christian hurt you some how. My concern was a focus on the negative aspects of Christ rather than the truth.

    • Jesus

      You're a proven liar. Prayer doesn’t not; you are such a LIAR. You have NO proof it changes anything! A great example of prayer proven not to work is the Christians in jail because prayer didn't work and their children died. For example: Susan Grady, who relied on prayer to heal her son. Nine-year-old Aaron Grady died and Susan Grady was arrested.

      An article in the Journal of Pediatrics examined the deaths of 172 children from families who relied upon faith healing from 1975 to 1995. They concluded that four out of five ill children, who died under the care of faith healers or being left to prayer only, would most likely have survived if they had received medical care.

      The statistical studies from the nineteenth century and the three CCU studies on prayer are quite consistent with the fact that humanity is wasting a huge amount of time on a procedure that simply doesn’t work. Nonetheless, faith in prayer is so pervasive and deeply rooted, you can be sure believers will continue to devise future studies in a desperate effort to confirm their beliefs!,!

Hey roughly 70% of the people on this planet don't believe in your god, that means your god is going to burn over roughly 4 billion people for eternity. That means your god is a monster and doesn't deserve to be worshiped.

    If you missed this on page 17 here it is again

    From Gumbo Ya-Ya

    Please take a moment and picture an America where the K KK, Na z is, A l Qu aeda, and Southern slaveowners were dominant forces in American society, and all vociferously pushed their beliefs regarding women, ho mose xuals, bla cks, je ws, etc. in the public sphere.

    Now imagine that all or some of these groups started screaming and whining that they were unjustifiably under attack and discriminated against every time someone publicly pushed back at their big oted beliefs. Rather than hearing or accepting any form of criticism (regardless of whether they felt the criticism was valid), these groups just stood on the grounds that they are somehow immune from criticism, with the strong implication that their immunity stems from their worldviews being a. morally superior, and/or b. mandated from G od. Coupled with the "fact" that they are self-proclaimed "good people" who are supporting "family values" and "not trying to hurt anybody."

    Knowing what you know now, would any person here HONESTLY advocate for these groups, or criticize the critics of these groups for being "too harsh," "bullying," or "disc riminatory?" Most people, obviously, would not, but would join in the criticism until the darkness inherent in these groups was eradicated or contained. If you would, however, criticize the critics, in my opinion you are a frightening person, but at least you would not lack the courage of your convictions. I would beg you, however, to reconsider your own moral worldview.

    In my opinion, this is precisely what the Fundam entalist/Evang elical "Ch ristians" are doing today. Just because someone SAYS that they follow a religion of peace, or that they strive to be good, nice, moral people, or that the founder of their religion taught love and in fact loves the entire world, AND backs it up by citing examples of when they or their religion donated to charities, gave to the poor, etc, DOES NOT MEAN that a. they are "good" people, b. their religion is "good" and founded on "truth" and "love," c. that any of what they say is true or meritorious, and/or d. that they are in any way immune from honest criticism and stark confrontation in the public sphere which they have so readily thrust themselves into.

    Fire away, oh you people who love decency, who love virtue, who admire honesty and courage, and who LOVE your fellow man. And don't stop fighting until the world rises up to join you against this darkness. In my opinion, it's better to stand and fight for what these people consider a "he llish" and "de monic" cause than to adopt their hypocritical forms of "goodness" and "love."

    And if you don't believe me, fine. Tell it to Joseph K ony.

      @Peace: So, you tolerate gays by discriminating against them, and then justify it with a belief system that you can present no verifiable supporting evidence is even accurate? Maybe we should start at the begining. Please present any supporting verifiable evidence that your god exists. Once you have done that and your gods existance is verified, you can then present evidence that supports your claim the he is not in favor of others lifestyles.

      I anxiously await your evidence for verification.

      So if you're claiming "every last word" in the Bible is BS, than you're including Romans 13:8, "Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law"? Either you are anti-love or decided not to read the Bible before you criticize it.

      peace.. what makes Christians. then, expect others to accept what they want? Why are your views any more important than say a gay person or an atheist? it is because you think you have a connection to a god....and you assume that your gods wishes supersede those of a democracy. What if i wanted all children in school to carve out wands because i think that Harry Potter is real .. would you try to get to Potterism out of the school because it conflicts with your equally unproven views?

      Good point. I don't subscribe to any religion, but I do see that the left leaning people in the US are attacking Christianity because it is assumed that all Republicans are Christians.
      While the left/liberals won't say anything negative about Islam and Muslims. Frankly it's because Christianity has evolved and changed and is tolerant, those that were upset left. I dare this guy to attack Islam and say the Koran (or however we are spelling it this week) is BS. He won't do it because he's the pansy@ss pu$$y and is afraid he will be attacked by a Muslim.

      Actually the problem is that the majority of people, at least according to the gop, bible thumpers and right wing fanatics want to control what goes on behind closed doors. More importantly, the bible is not secular law and is not justification for doing whatever one wants in society. If that were the case I could go around killing the 1st born of any that I don't consider believers in whatever I hold sacred. It would be justified "because it's in the bible".

      It takes people like this to bring attention to such issues because those who are against shout twice as loud. They wave their bible like it is the law of the land and they are here to smite someone until they believe or die. So, you can go back to your closed door and let people who have something to fight for, fight for it in public. I do agree that those who seemed so offended, are probably the ones doing most of the bullying.

    The bible's statements on slavery need to be seen in context. Slavery was a given, a fact-of-life in the ancient world. The bible made sure that a slave had certain rights and could eventually be freed. I am not a Christian, and I know that historically Christian leaders departed far from Jesus' teachings and committed terrible injustices in Jesus' name, but don't underestimate the fact that Christianity has good and kind aspects as well. It's not a case of black or white.

      Great way to make excuses for the fucking bible. "Oh, but the context...."

      It's always the excuse. You'd think that for a book written in light of divinity it would have been a little more clear then, eh comrade? The scripture should have said, "Slaves are ok now, but later on it won't be so just take this all in context when you read it. Don't forget. CONTEXT."

      Fail. It doesn't need to be seen in context. If no longer of any use to the people of today, it needs to be corrected. Preferably by the god who allegedly authored it's content. Do you suppose he'll show up ? Or will he simply continue to allow the status quo.

      "There are few things more tragic than the complacence of the willfully ignorant."

      Well said........ Speaking of the tragedy of willful ingnorance, please provide any verifiable evidence that your God, or any Gods exist.

      "please provide any verifiable evidence that your God, or any Gods exist."

      You have it backward. It is axiomatic that God exists, the obvious corollary of a world and universe of such great complexity. The burden of proof is not on us but on you. Please provide verifiable evidence that He does not exist and then we'll talk. If you cannot manage that, as of course you cannot, I'll settle for any convincing reason to imagine that He does not exist, and that the world just popped into existence one fine day all by itself.

    I'm not offended by Mr.Dan....sure wish he could have been challenged. Leviticus...really...that is so...70's....
    Try these next time....Ephesians 2:8, Psalm 119:78 ...Phillipians 4:8....John 14:6....Romans5:8 and lets not forget
    drum roll............MICHA 6:8........–"He has shown you, oh man, what is good and what the Lord requires of thee: but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God."

    Inner peace......Peace be with you Dan. God is good!

      it must be nice to be able to cherry pick the nice parts of the bible and be totally blind to the rest of it.

      ignorance is bliss

      With a screenname like that, you do nothing to lessen the perception that religious people are simply arrogant and self-righteous.

      Cyle....not ignorant....very much aware....I choose to see the good in everything and everyone. I choose to love because...well yeah...I'm gonna say it....well because you made me......Because He first loved me 😉 If you knew me before and see my comments now .....you might be a believer too. I was soooo lost and a throw away child my friend. I cant live any other way. I'm happy...so be happy for me! God is love....too me:)

    The stuff about gays is not the only bs in the bible. Most of the bible is bs... It is not the word of God. It is the word of what men think a God would have said.

      Correction... It is the word of fearful men with essentially zero science at their disposal think a God would have said.
