No one I know is in favor of bullying, except the bullies, of course. But the anti-bullying campaign is not about bullying. It's about so-called homosexual teens and a great deal of bullying is being directed at Christian teens and adults who still cling to the Bible and what it says.
As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference in California after Dan Savage, a gay anti-bullying speaker, began cursing, attacked the Bible and repeatedly called those who refused to listen to his rant a crude name. Savage has produced a video that includes President Obama and Hollywood stars and he and his so called "husband" were guests at the White House for the president's 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception.
So you see what this is really all about, right? It's about slamming Christians who proclaim that God is the author of sexuality and marriage and He gets to decide the boundaries in male-female relationships.
And when Christians stand up for that, they are bullied. Will the anti-bullying campaign include them? Hardly.
