Quote of the day: Dan Savage

Try to keep up: The dehumanizing bigotries that fall from the lips of “faithful Christians,” and the lies about us that vomit out from the pulpits of churches that “faithful Christians” drag their kids to on Sundays, give your children license to verbally abuse, humiliate, and condemn the gay children they encounter at school. And many of your children—having listened to Mom and Dad talk about how gay marriage is a threat to family and how gay sex makes their magic sky friend Jesus cry—feel justified in physically abusing the LGBT children they encounter in their schools. You don’t have to explicitly “encourage [your] children to mock, hurt, or intimidate” queer kids. Your encouragement—along with your hatred and fear—is implicit. It’s here, it’s clear, and we’re seeing the fruits of it: dead children.

The kind of hatred spewed at Christians in blanket vomiting of assumptions and misinformation from the gay community is no more excusable. Christians are varied and diverse. Muslims and Buddhists are uniformly against gays in every way. The president of Iran says there are no Iranian gays.
I see no mention of Muslims in this quote however.
