Breitbart Media report that 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference.  Savage called those that walked out silently, 'pansy-assed'. That says a lot about Mr Savage, what a name to be birthed with.
Dan you might like to view the science of the nature of the koala bears and how their sexual preference changes when they live in captivity.  Really what is the difference between the slavery that is mentioned in the bible, and the slavery that the peoples of the world live in today? Clearly not a lot. Its all a matter of perspective and level of it.
At least those that worked the fields did not have a mountain of debt, and living in nature is supreme in comparison with concrete land. The people just swopped one form of slavery, for another. However, its still slavery when you are enslaved to consumerism. Consumerism that leads people and their cultures and nations to their own self-destruction.
If you are going to quote the bible Dan why not quote the best? Why not give the Christians something to embrace? Why not give that which is positive Dan? Of course, that does not make news does it?
Jesus said 'not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it is given. For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men and others have renounced marriage because of the Kingdom of Heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it. Matt: 19 - 11-12 NIV
'The Greek word eu-nu-chos means: a homosexual, homosexual officer, castrated man, and a celibate person; translated from the Greek scriptures into English as eunuch.'
He also mentioned the sea-food and how Christians have overcome that aspect. Yet, today, we see eyeless shrimps and mutant fish being found by scientists. Clearly, some of the sea-food is contaminated.
So what else did Jesus Christ have to say about Sodom? 'Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.' Matthew 10:15 The judgement began in 2010 when the sign of Jonah arrived in Israel.
What did Prophet Isaiah say about the USA? "Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms, the pride and glory of the Babylonians, will be overthrown by elohiym like Sodom and Gomorrah." Isaiah 13:9 Rev 13 mentions the Leopard Obama, a friend of yours Dan. Rev 17 and 18 is also about the USA. The last days of the end times. Proverbs 30 mentions Obama, the 'slave that became a king', and Andrew Breitbart the rooster.
Prophet Isaiah spoke about the eunuchs. 'Let no foreigner who is bound to the Lord say, “The Lord will surely exclude me from his people. And let no eunuch complain. “I am only a dry tree.” For this is what the Lord says “To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths who choose what pleases me and hold fast to my covenant, to them I will give within my temple and its walls a memorial and a name better than sons and daughters;I will give them an everlasting name that will endure forever.' Isaiah 56:3-5
You quote Leviticus Dan, what did Prophet Jeremiah have to say about the law introduced by the Jewish priests? “‘How can you say, “We are wise, for we have the law of the Lord,” when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?" Jeremiah 8:8
In my experience there is two different laws in the bible, there is the law that came from the 'way of man', and there is the spiritual law that is the 'way of the Spirit'. Unfortunately, the orthodox Church in the USA concentrated on the 'way of man' instead of the 'way of Spirit.
This is the time for you to understand Dan Savage, Teshuvah.
