Dan Savage is a person who bullies high school students when he gives speeches against bullying.
If you haven’t seen it already, there’s a video clip of him giving a speech to some high school students in which he attacks Christianity relentlessly. Some Christian teens walk out and he gets even nastier about them. You can find the clip if you’re interested. I’m not going to embed it or even link to it, because the language is disgusting and I don’t want to give this aggressive sodomite any more publicity.
What interests me in this savage attack on Christianity is that his attack is against Scripture. His essential argument is, “We don’t take any notice of the Old Testament’s prohibitions on eating shellfish or crustaceans. We ignore the fact that the New Testament allows for slavery. We overlook the polygamy amongst the patriarchs. We have learned that the Old Testament’s rules on eating pork are not to be taken seriously, so we’ll soon learn that the rules against homosexuality are also something we can safely ignore.
Where does he get that method of arguing? It can only come from a set of assumptions about the Christian faith which he has picked up from fundamentalism. So, although this guy is a pretty unpleasant and aggressive piece of work there is more at work here. Read more.
