Here’s one more thing I wish I could post on my Facebook wall but I won’t. From the Advocate article:
“We can learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about gay people,”
he said on April 13.
“The same way, the same way we have learned to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about shellfish, about slavery, about dinner, about farming, about menstruation, about virginity, about masturbation. We ignore bullshit in the Bible about all sorts of things. The Bible is a radically pro-slavery document. Slave owners waved Bibles over their heads during the Civil War and justified it.”
After the students walked out in protest, Savage retorted,
“It’s funny, as someone who’s on the receiving end of beatings that are justified by the Bible, how pansy-assed some people react when you push back.”
I love Dan Savage.
“Pansy-assed” is my new word.
