Will Dan Savage See the Light and Embrace Christ as His Savior?


Hate group leader Tony Perkins prays that will happen, Right Wing Watch reports:

Savage"I would put out this challenge to folks who are listening: to put Dan Savage on the top of your prayer list and pray for him because I believe he has the potential to be a modern day Saul of Tarsus. I mean, just think if the Lord got a hold of his heart and changed him and turned him from persecuting Christians to being an advocate of Christianity and morality, what a huge impact that would have. So don't get angry at Dan Savage; he's doing what people do when they're lost. Pray for him that he would see the light, be blinded by the light, and come to know Christ as his personal savior."


Savage responds, with a post and a video:

Writes Savage:

And Saul of Tarsus? That would be Paul, of course, author of huge chunks of the New Testament and the creep responsible for its most misogynistic and homophobic bits. (Jesus didn't say anything about homosexuality, and Jesus never asked his mother or Mary Magdalene to "keep silent.")

Paul was a tortured closet case, which is the kind of Christian I would have to be to meet with the approval of someone like Tony Perkins. You know, a Christian in the style of Marcus Bachmann or Ted Haggard or Benedict XVI. And let's not forget what "I'll pray for you" means someone like Perkins says it:

Every one knows, "I'll pray for you," is how Baptists say, "F**k you."

F**k you too, Tony.

  2. This guy is an idiot. Dan pointed out the obvious. Yes, the bible contradicts itself and shouldn't be read literally. The first contradiction is Gen. 2:7! You can't even get to page 2 before it's done it! Hell, I was taught about this at 15 in a theology class at a Jesuit High School!

  3. Yep- both creationism and evolution are described in Genesis. Spokesholes and virulent xtian bigots like Perkins never bother about biblical facts.

  4. Perkins is a Christian? That psychopath should pray for himself.

  5. Persecuting christians is sorta like making a dog chase a flashlight spot in a darkened room. Fun for a while and it exercises the dog.

    So pray all you want.

  6. Does this mean there's not going to be a debate after all? Or is this a different guy?

  8. Why does anyone need a savior? Is it all based on that Adam and Eve myth? What nonsense !!!!

  9. There is no light in the filth that is Christianity. They want to drag everyone into another Dark Age.

  10. After seeing this, there was only one word that came to mind....Barf!

  11. With just a few adjustments, I could say the same about Tony Perkins:

    "I mean, just think if the Lord got a hold of his heart and changed him and turned him from a persecuting Christian to being an advocate of Christian morality as advocated by the sermon on the mount."

  12. Let them pray--it keeps them off the streets and out of the fleshpots.
