Obama's anti-bullying czar bullies Christian kids
Dan Savage, who launched the "It gets better" campaign that President Obama incorporated into his outreach to homosexual youth, mocked Christian students because they disagreed with his opinion of Christianity.
Savage, speaking at a seminar for high school journalism students earlier this month, made a profanity-laced attack on "B.S." in the Bible that he said is used to justify gay bullying.
When several Christian students decided to leave the seminar, "Savage noticed them leaving and called them 'pansies,'" according to Citizenlink, a Christian the first reported the incident.
Savage also called the students "pansy asses," according to Rick Tuttle, a high school journalism teacher who attended the speech. "It felt hostile as we were sitting in the audience – especially towards Christians who espouse beliefs that he was literally taking on," Tuttle told Fox News.
One of the CitizenLink writers noted Savage's hypocrisy. "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," Candi Cushman wrote.
