Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”
The founder of the “It Gets Better” anti-bullying project called Christian students a foul name and delivered profanity laden attacks on the Bible at a conference for teen journalists.
Dan Savage told the audience to ignore the “(explicative deleted) in the Bible” and heckled students who walked out during his self-described “beating up the Bible.” The talk included sexual innuendos and Savage’s telling the audience about his partner’s appearance in a speedo.
The speech was announced before the event as addressing anti-bullying.
The National Scholastic Press Association released a statement where they offered no apology for the comments made by Savage. Their only comment addressing the incident was that they wished Savage had “stayed more on target for the audience of teen journalists.”
