Students Walk Out on Dan Savage

Christian high-school students uncomfortable with sex columnist Dan Savage’s comments on Bible passages intolerant of homosexuality walked out of a lecture at the National High School Journalism Convention in Seattle. Some said the antibullying advocate’s remarks became abusive when Savage began talking about “bulls--t in the Bible about gay people.” Rick Tuttle, a journalism adviser at a California high school, told Fox News that he was among those bothered by Savage’s remarks. “I thought this would be about antibullying,” Tuttle said. In his lecture, Savage pointed to other biblical proscriptions, including injunctions against eating shellfish, that are usually overlooked in even the most-severe scriptural interpretations.
