Audio: Anti-bullying programs are wrong. Because Dan Savage

by Jeremy Hooper

Programs designed to fight the very real problem of anti-LGBT bullying are just some "leftist agenda," says longtime anti-LGBT activist Michael Geer. And Dan Savage, a man who created an extremely effective program geared toward helping LGBT youth, is the "proof":

Of all of the anti-LGBT activists' efforts, their attempts to undermine anti-bullying efforts make me the most nauseous. Anyone who has been through America's public schools has to perform a high level of mental gymnastics in order to deny the very obvious problem of picking on the gay kid. It has gotten better, thankfully, an it will surely get even better as the exceedingly more pro-LGBT young people of today make their way through school. But kids are still being targeted because of who they are, and principled leaders have a responsibility to step in and do something about it.

These adult-delivered lines that willfully turn blind eyes to the issue in order to score some cheap political points about supposedly "victimized" Christians? It's just gross. And dangerous.
