Dan Savage Challenges Peter LaBarbera to Identify his ‘Hate Speech,’ but Key Nasty Video Remains Spiked
Atheist homosexual sex columnist errs in referring to wrong video in challenge to AFTAH president
BREAKING: View the video of Dan Savage that is going viral — as Savage attacks the Bible and refers to the “pansy ass” attitude of Christian high school students who walked out in protest. Go HERE.
By Peter LaBarbera
Talk about chutzpah: homosexual militant Dan Savage — creator of the despicable hate-site “Santorum.com” — has issued a public challenge to document his “hate speech.”
Yes, you read that correctly: only in the upside-down world of “gay” activism would a man who notoriously and proudly ”re-defined” Rick Santorum’s last name as “The frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex” — issue a challenge to find the hatred in his recorded words.
But here’s the kicker: at least one of the videos containing some of Savage’s rancorous attacks on Christians was taken down a few days ago, and remains down today (April 26, 2012).
Increasingly, conservatives (like Gina Miller) are paying attention to Savage, who despite his cruel antics and anti-Christian barbs continues to be lauded in media and academic circles. He even has his own, brand new show on MTV, about sex on college campuses. If there is anything that testifies to the sham of the liberal crusade against (ostensibly right-wing Christian) “hate” and “bullying,” it is the media’s, academia’s and pop culture’s rewarding of cyber-bully Savage.
Hiding his hate?
When my friend and Illinois Family Institute writer Laurie Higgins wrote a piece about Savage’s upcoming speeech at Elmurst College (Sunday, April 29, 2012 at 7:00; contact Elmhurst HERE), it appeared to Laurie (and to me) that Savage had responded to her article by removing one of more of his anti-evangelical-Christian videos from YouTube. Caught up in a moment of “gotcha,” on Thursday I tweeted Savage about allegedly “scrubbing” his videos. “Who’s the ‘pansy’ now, Dan?” I asked, referencing his taunt against offended Christian students who walked out on a recent Bible-bashing talk by Savage in Seattle. (And in deference to Savage, I’d have been fairer by simply asking him if he spiked the videos.)
On Thursday, Savage responded on his The Stranger blog that he did not take down any of his videos. Rather, his video production company, Hypomania, did, and not to hide any of Savage’s hateful comments but for “quality control reasons” (e.g, bad lighting). As he did on Twitter (see graphic above), Savage accused me of lying. amidst other silly charges (e.g., “fantasizing” about his perverted sex life when all I did was expose his admitted “three ways”). And he challenged me and others to point out the “hate speech” in his videos.
Here’s the problem: Savage identifies the WRONG video (“How to Come Out to your Evangelical Family”) as the source of his hateful remarks against Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and evangelicals who oppose homosexulity.
Did Savage or his video company scrub his site?
Common sense dictates that Savage put up all the videos Higgins and others have referenced that were taken down — especially his Rhodes College talk (which at press time Sunday was still down) — so we can evaluate Higgins’ assertion that he called Perkins and other evangelicals “douchbags,” etc.
I will take Savage at his word that he is not running from his open (very public) record, which includes an abundant supply of malicious attacks against people of faith. Now let’s see the proof by restoring the blocked videos so we can accurately answer his challenge.
Meanwhile, here is an excerpt from an excellent American Centurion column by Gina Miller — who is a MUST READ for anyone concerned about the future of America. God bless. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
Gina Miller writes in The American Clarion (excepts follow):
“Homosexual Radical Dan Savage Bullies High Schoolers”
The Word of God has warned us, so we are not surprised when people inspired by the forces of darkness screech and wail against God’s Truth. Some of the most vicious, anti-Christian, anti-truth people in the world are the radical, homosexual activists, and among them, not many are as vile as Dan Savage.
Savage is a twisted, sex columnist who started the “It Gets Better Project,” a propaganda tool targeting kids, which pushes the homosexual lifestyle on them under the guise of an “anti-bullying” campaign.
From their website is this description,
That is a damnable lie. Numerous studies have shown that depression, drug abuse and suicide rates for homosexuals are much higher than among the normal population—yes, I said “normal”! It is detestable to lie to young people, encouraging them to embrace homosexuality, claiming it will make them happy in the long run.
At the About.com website is a report from 2008 which states, in part,
The column goes on to quote the lead researcher on the study who blames bullying and lack of social acceptance for those increased problems among the homosexual population.
That is not the real reason. When a person violates God’s natural order for human behavior, whether it is through sexual deviancy or any other sinful behavior which runs counter to God’s natural law, that person will invariably be miserable. All manner of sinful behavior leaves the person who engages in it unhappy and unfulfilled—at the very least. This is especially true of homosexuality, which God has described as abominable and detestable to Him.
Dan Savage, the vicious homosexual radical who has said the most despicable things about those who disagree with him, was giving a speech last Friday in Seattle.
As reported by Focus on the Family’s CitizenLink,
This freak is speaking to high school kids! This man who is supposedly an anti-bullying crusader is perhaps the biggest bully out there. For him to go before these kids and say these kinds of things, to call Bible-believing high school students “pansies” is sickening, but I suppose that is his goal—to sicken those who oppose his hellish message.
Savage certainly has a record of saying things that would make the ancient, smoking-grease-spot-residents of Sodom and Gomorrah proud. Savage has invited former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain to perform oral sex on him. He has wished all Republicans were “f-ing dead.” He has said things about Rick Santorum that I cannot easily describe, because they are so heinous, and through all of it, Savage is lauded and uplifted by Hollywood celebrities and media minions of Hell. Even Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) has lent his support for Savage’s “It Gets Better Project.”
Of all the reprehensible things Dan Savage says and does, the most sinister part of his sodomite crusade is his targeting of children. Jesus has very strong words for those who would hurt children and cause them to stumble.
As Peter LaBarbera, President of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, points out,
People who peddle perversion to our kids will one day pay a terrible, unimaginable price if they do not turn from their wicked ways and embrace the free gift of salvation offered by Jesus.
By preying on children, people like Dan Savage become the most despicable among us. He offers children and young adults lies from Hell when he encourages them to embark on a homosexual lifestyle that he assures will make them happy. He lies when he says that people who speak out against homosexuality are “bullies” and “bigots.” As I have pointed out before, the “anti-bullying” campaign is nothing more than the latest platform of the radical homosexual Left to indoctrinate our school kids with their perverse agenda and to gain more young recruits into their dead-end, homosexual club.
People like Dan Savage are only offering Hell on a silver platter to vulnerable, impressionable kids, and one day he will be sorry for doing so. But, thankfully there are many Jewish and Christian warriors who offer real help and real hope to people of all ages who may be dealing with unwanted same-sex attraction. Groups like Jonah International, Positive Alternatives to Homosexuality (P.A.T.H), Exodus International and others provide truthful answers and support for those desiring to fight and overcome same-sex attraction. ….
