From Towleroad: Teen Christians Vs. Dan Savage At Student Journalism Conference: Video

From Towleroad:

A great brouhaha is stirring in the nation’s conservative publications over comments Dan Savage made two weeks ago while addressing the JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention. The convention was entitled “Journalism On The Edge,” which you’d think would prep participants for a certain amount of edginess in the presentations.

From Huffington Post: Pat Robertson: Christians Bullying LGBT Kids In School Is Wrong

From Huffington Post:

Rev. Pat Robertson could not have been clearer during his 700 Club’s question and answer period – bullying gay and lesbian students is wrong.

Roberston was asked by a viewer named Douglas: “What would you say to a school that has gay and LGBT (sic) students being bullied by the Christian kids?”

Robertson actually seems a bit shocked by the question, and answered: “Well I think that’s terrible. Christians shouldn’t do that… I mean.. lesbian, gay, transgender, blah blah blah, I mean.. Christians shouldn’t do that. They ought to act in love.”

From Towleroad:

Dr. Robert Spitzer, a psychiatrist who published a controversial 2001 study suggesting that in rare instances gay people could change their sexual orientation, retracted those claims in an American Prospect article published last week. Spitzer had led the effort to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness in 1973, and the 2001 article was an attempt, according to Spitzer, to “question ‘whether everything you’ve been taught is wrong.'”
