National Scholastic Press Association spokesperson:
The story line is that gay bullies are Christians who read Leviticus and Romans. And nothing will get between the story and reality.... some actually felt hurt by Savage’s comments, especially those aimed at religious beliefs. While some of his earlier comments were so strongly worded that they shook some of our audience members, it is never the intent of JEA or NSPA to let students get hurt during their time at our conventions.
Note that the National Scholastic Press Association is not apologizing for their speaker, what he said, or his verbal bullying. It's all good.“The first thing he told the audience was, ‘I hope you’re all using birth control,’” she told CitizenLink. “he said there are people using the Bible as an excuse for gay bullying, because it says in Leviticus and Romans that being gay is wrong. Right after that, he said we can ignore all the (expletive deleted) in the Bible.” As the teenagers were walking out, Tuttle said that Savage heckled them and called them “pansy asses.”
