Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage is mad at Dan Savage for calling the Bible’s statements about homosexuality “bullshit.” Really mad. Incensed. Beside himself. So much so that he’s turning it into the bigot’s equivalent of a hip hop battle, challenging Savage to a duel of argument at 20 paces:
As a father of seven, watching it makes my blood boil.
Let me lay down a public challenge to Dan Savage right here and now: You want to savage the Bible? Christian morality? Traditional marriage? Pope Benedict? I’m here, you name the time and the place and let’s see what a big man you are in a debate with someone who can talk back. It’s easy to make high-school girls cry by picking on them. Let’s pick on someone our own size!
I’m here, any time, any place you name, Dan Savage. You will find out out how venal and ridiculous your views of these things are if you dare to accept a challenge.
