Food For Thought: Dan Savage

"We can learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about gay people. 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."

Ms. Dan has her issues, but she was right on with this one. Although I will concede the use of the word bullshit may have been too much for a high school audience (yes teens curse, but that doesn't mean authority figures should do it in front of them per se). Anyway, watch the speech below.
