Dan Savage is an Intolerant Hate-Monger

Dan Savage offended some Christian teens when he told them “We can learn to ignore the bull—t in the Bible about gay people.”  Savage made his comments during a speech at the National High School Journalist Conference in Seattle.  After many students walked out of the speech, one of whom appeared to be crying, Savage said, “It’s funny, as someone who’s on the receiving end of beatings that are justified by the bible, how pansy —-d some people react when you push back.”  Fox News reports that Savage’s comments upset the executive director of GOProud, a gay conservative group.

It seems Mr Savage is all for tolerance- except when it comes to Christians and then, like all radical atheists and their ilk, Christians are a favorite target.  Mr Savage, get better yourself, hypocrite.

Jonathan Stökl Is on the Twitter

Here’s his twitter page.  Haven’t yet learned who he is?  Well you can here or here.  He’s a fellow SOTS-ian and a delightful person.  Very much worth ‘following’.

The Former Head of Israel’s Shin Bet Has No Confidence in Barak or Netanyahu

While America’s Christian Zionists fawn over, slobber for, and unconditionally support Bibi and Barak, those in the know in Israel don’t trust either of them.

Yuval Diskin accuses Israel’s leaders of misleading the public on Iran, says they are making decisions ‘based on messianic feelings.’

That pretty much sums up Bibi’s view of himself.

Former Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin expressed harsh criticism of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Friday in a meeting with residents of the city of Kfar Sava, saying the pair is not worthy of leading the country.  “My major problem is that I have no faith in the current leadership, which must lead us in an event on the scale of war with Iran or a regional war,” Diskin told the “Majdi Forum,” a group of local residents that meets to discuss political issues.

Why Bibi continues to receive any support from anyone, but especially from Israelis, is the world’s greatest mystery. That Christian Zionists in Canada and America adore the man is idiocy.  He’s the world’s most dangerous man.
