Dan Savage, the gay rights activist who started the “It Gets Better” movement, was invited to be the keynote speaker at a high school journalism convention in Seattle.
Savage sure knows how to clear a room. During his remarks, he called the Bible pro-slavery and argued that if the Bible got something like slavery wrong, then anti-gay protestors shouldn’t use the book as a defense for their views either.
As you can see in the video below, some students applauded Savage while others walked out on his speech.
Savage went on to call those who left the room “pansy ass” and later apologized if he “hurt anyone’s feelings.”
Do you think Dan Savage made a good point, or did he go too far?
