Gay-rights advocate Dan Savage, in his latest diatribe here, again attacked the faith and beliefs of Christians concerning homosexuality, but this time to a group of high school students. He had been invited to give a talk at a conference on journalism organized by the National Scholastic Press Organization, but in short order Savage's talk quickly disintegrated into a rant of hate, laced with vulgarity and rage. Though he may be seen as a courageous voice for gay-rights, there was no courage displayed on his part, not when you have a captive audience of high school students having to listen to this type of hate against their faith. It was cowardice through and through.
There was courage however displayed at the conference, by the young students who actually walked out of the auditorium in the middle of Savage's ravings while being subjected to name calling by him. Theirs is a courage to be admired by all. They let their disgust be known by their action of walking out without lowering themselves in a verbal debate that would have accomplished nothing productive.
Mr. Savage has actually done a favor for faithful Christians and to others who hold fast to natural law concerning same-sex attraction, by showing the world what militant homosexuality is all about. He single handedly exposed the profound depth of moral depravity into which sin will lead people when they allow their basest of passions to dominate their lives. His rage, hatred and anger is frighteningly close to the demonic as seen in this latest video. "It wasn't like I sneaked up on a Bible study class and commandeered the podium,” he told the Seattle Times. “I'm like the Devil. You have to invite me in.” Telling words Mr. Savage.
It's been apparent for a long time now how militant homosexuality is a hate group hiding behind the cloak of victimization. Having rejected the natural and God given order of intimacy between a man and woman, they have instead adopted the unnatural acts of homosexuality as a moral good. In turn they have attacked Catholic beliefs and of Christians in general that believe such acts between men are a grave sin of the highest order against God and nature. Mr. Savage's hate of anything or anyone that speaks against these acts was in full display during his talk.
The Church, in all her compassion teaches about human dignity and respect for all, especially homosexuals as seen here in the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
2358 "The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided...."
There are no words more profoundly beautiful than these regarding men and women who have SSA. To a true Christian there is no such thing as hate for the homosexual. Again, as said a million times, "Hate the sin, love the sinner." Gay advocates pretend there is no distinction between the sin and sinner and so they paint all those that see homosexual acts as sinful with the same broad brush of being hateful of the sinner. I do not believe for one second that militant homosexuals cannot see the difference between the sin and sinner. They do, but it isn't just respect they want, but a full acceptance and justification of their behavior, a behavior that the Church will never accept as anything else but a grave sin.
Created in God's image, men and woman have God's law written in their hearts. We know the immorality of killing, theft, dishonesty or sexual sin. We cannot escape it. Dan Savage and his ilk have tried to scrub their hearts clean of this 'voice' within them with their own version of Lady Macbeth's "Out damned spot!", but it is an exercise in futility. That little voice will not go away and it enrages them. It enrages them for that voice is their accuser. The hate we see in militant homosexuals is the overflow of the hate and loathing they have for themselves.
Dan Savage has a finger on his own self-destruct button. If he believes his behavior will endear him to those that oppose sexual acts outside of marriage, he is in for a big surprise. He is nothing but a pushy, coercive bully whose whole life revolves around his genitals. Go on Youtube and check out other videos of Dan Savage if you have the stomach for it. What you will hear is militant homosexuality in all its depravity.
Dan Savage is given to temper tantrums, stomping and stamping his feet with his attempts to shock those in his audience with profanity and hate for the things that are good and holy. Like an impetuous child that doesn't get what it wants, he will do whatever he can to attract attention. It is during his tirades that Christians need only to sit back, and let him display his hateful immaturity and depravity to the world. In some of the blogs I've read concerning Mr. Savages anti-christian rhetoric, there have been comments from faithful Christian who have SSA and live chaste lives, cringing from the likes of Mr. Savage. As one commenter said, he doesn't advocate the gay lifestyle, but only to have the normal respect due to all men and women. They see Savage as an obstacle to this goal and are distancing themselves from him and his militancy.
Unable or unwilling to repent and to leave behind their lifestyles, militant gays shrink away from the goodness in whose image they were created when they are exposed to the light of truth, sinking ever lower to new level of verbal or physical violence. Mr. Savage has lost his way and is on the path of self-destruction of his own making in this world where we were created to seek God. But his loss is not absolute. With every breath Mr. Savage takes, God offers him the grace to set him free from the chains with which he has shackled himself. Mr. Savage, I promise you, you have my prayers, for one day, your last breath, as well as mine, will come.
