Video: Anti-Bullying Activist Apologizes For Mocking Homophobic Students

Dan Savage has now apologized for comments he made at a high school journalism convention a couple of weeks ago when Christian students walked out as he was telling the room that the Bible can't be used to justify bullying any more than it can be used to justify slavery or stoning women. Accused of being a hypocritical bully, Savage said he wasn't attacking anyone's religion. Via Gawker.

I’m sorry Christian students got caught in the crossfire a bit here, but considering how frequently the Bible is cited by social extremists as a justification for anti-homosexual sentiment and gender bias... it’s not difficult to see why Savage made the comment.
