Dan Savage, creator of the “It Gets Better” anti-bullying project, was invited to be a keynote speaker at a high school journalism conference in Seattle. And during his speech, things quickly got controversial.
“We can learn to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about gay people,” Savage said. He then went on to cite how much the Bible got wrong: slavery, menstruation, human sexuality, etc.
Some attendees applauded in agreement, while others took offense to Savage’s Bible-bashing and promptly walked out the conference.
When Savage was finished, he said “You can tell the Bible guys in the hall to come back now because I’m done beating up the Bible.”
