Dan Savage has been known as a very vocal and extreme gay activist. He has spoken to thousands of high school and college students, promoting the LGBT lifestyles. He has actively pushed for gay rights that amount to privileged rights above and beyond what everyone else has.
The University of Oregon paid Savage $24,000 in October to talk to students about being gay and some of the perverse acts including fisting. He also promoted the SexPositive app created by the university that not only promotes safe sex, but also provides suggestions for new and inventive sexual techniques and positions. Now doesn’t that make you want to send your kids to the University of Oregon knowing they are developing apps like this for students to use?
Last year, Savage spoke about anti-bullying at a journalism conference. He spoke of tolerance and acceptance of the gay lifestyle. Setting himself up as a fine example of tolerance and anti-bullying, Savage went on a tirade against Republicans, saying:
“I wish they were all f***king dead.”
Savage has often shocked audiences with his outrageous statements supporting his gay lifestyle. A month ago, he appeared on The View talk show and shocked the audience when asked about monogamy. He stated that he and his partner cheat on each other by both having sex with another gay man at the same time. The studio audience thought his response was hilarious, but I find it offensive and repulsive.
On Monday, Savage appeared on an Australia television program as part of a panel of people. During the panel discussion, Savage spoke to fellow panelist Peter Hitchens, who is a pro-life Christian and brother of the late Christopher Hitchens, saying:
“Forcing women to give birth against their will damages women.”
At the end of the program, audience member Lisa Malouf asked the panel:
“Which so-called ‘dangerous idea’ do you each think would have the greatest potential to change the world for the better if it were implemented?”
The moderator turned to Savage and said he should go first. Savage hesitated for a moment then responded:
“Population control. There’s too many G-d d—-ed people on the planet.”
“You know, I’m pro-choice, I believe that women should have a right to control their bodies. Sometimes in my darker moments, I’m anti-choice. I think abortion should be mandatory for about 30 years.”
Hitchens also responded to Malouf’s question, saying:
“The most dangerous idea in human history and philosophy remains the belief that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and rose from the dead. And that is the most dangerous idea you will ever encounter.”
“[The divinity of Christ is so dangerous] because it alters the whole of human behavior and all our responsibilities. It turns the universe from a meaningless chaos into a designed place in which there is justice and there is hope and, therefore, we all have a duty to discover the nature of that justice and work towards that hope.”
“It alters us all. If we reject it, it alters us all was well.”
Some have suggested that Savage was just responding tongue in cheek, but many others say he was quite serious with his response. Tim Stanley of the London Telegraph, wrote in response to seeing Savage’s response:
“In retrospect, Savage might try to insist that he was only joking but there’s no smile on his face and the point seems quite seriously made. [Because Savage spoke] about abortion, he’ll probably be defended by radical pro-choicers. But what he’s basically saying here is that women should be compelled to abort their children so that there are less people around to annoy Dan Savage.”
From everything I have heard and read of Dan Savage and watching the video clip of his response, I believe that he is dead serious that every woman on earth should be forced to have abortions for the next 30 years. He reminds me of Peter Singer who once stated that humans should all be killed so that the rest of the creatures on earth can survive. Singer advocated euthanasia for the elderly, until his own mother became elderly and had health problems. He toned down his rhetoric when it hit closer to home.
But in Savage’s case, there is no family life at home, at least not in the way that God intended it. Two men cannot procreate, which thankfully is a good thing in today’s rampant gay culture. He has no concept of what a family is or the value of having a loving family.
God built everything around the family. The first covenant He made with Adam was that of the family; be fruitful and multiply. He created the family unit for us knowing that it is the one thing that will keep us stable and on firm foundations. It is also symbolic of our relationship to Him and Jesus Christ. The family unit is what has held America together and kept her strong for over two centuries.
Forcing every woman to have an abortion for the next 30 years would effectively destroy the family unit and the cohesive stability it gives to society, opening the doors to a liberal, progressive and socialist society. He doesn’t even want to give women a choice, but make abortion mandatory. The tolerance he preaches is strictly for his own perverted agenda. And sadly, thousands of young people are listening to his preaching every year.
