On behalf of all the dead and dieing folks who should have used a condom but didn't, thanks.

Dan, clearly your oppressive bullying made it so that Joseph Ratzinger could not face another day of ridicule in the public system and will instead try home popeing.

The headline isn't in quotation marks so you own it Danny.

Plagiarizer.

Perhaps Dom can explain quotation marks to you.

Evidently even a HS dropout trumps a community college theatre dropout in the grammar dept.

The Catholic Church is the world's biggest and ugliest bully. But they bully women and children, so that's o.k. You just aren't supposed to bully the bullies. See?

@1

Yeah.

Thanks from everyone.

On behalf of all the dead and dieing folks.

Who should have used a condom.

but didn't.....

@3 Any real journalist might also read the story beyond the headline and see the very video and the references to Tim Minchin in the original article. It's a thing called "context" which Newsbusters really likes to ignore.
7
Funny that "Newsbusters," whatever the hell that is, thinks that a short comment made in a blog post for a low-circulation, local newspaper deserves national headlines.
8
@1 and @5: your parents, for instance?

Here's hoping a lot more people do click on Tim Minchin's pope song! Only probelm I have with it is its ear-worm quality that has =me hummung duptdaduptduptaaa duptdaduptduptaaa duptdaduptduptaaa duptdaduptduptaaa......

Funny that "DannySavage," whoever the hell that is, thinks that the facebook site of a a small private prom in podunk, Indiana deserves national headlines......

Perhaps Newsbusters should consider that the headline and the video did not get coverage by the major media outlets because they know that their audience agrees with the sentiments expressed and they know their corporate masters wouldn't allow them to report that fact. Fuck the motherfuckers at Newsbusters and fuck the motherfuckers who think calling that motherfucking Pope a motherfucker is bigotry. I would also add that religious leaders are fucking dancing on the graves of dead gays kids. Dancing motherfuckers each and every motherfucking one of them.

MOOOMMMYYYYYY I GOT A BOO BOO

Dan is great! No, Dan is a bully! No..I don't know! Help, I have Stockholm syndrome! Help! Someone rescue me from this brute!! *faints*

I'll bet these wingnuts must be similarly outraged when some cartoonist takes on Islam ..

and look at Danny all over the place posting....somebody sure ate their Wheaties this morning

@8 sorry if that was to obscure for you. In addition to covering for child molesters, the pope also continues to demand that no catholic use a condom. This has resulted in the completely unnecessary death of thousands of his followers.

My parents are not at risk of contracting HIV but thanks for the concern.

relax Granny.
Adrian was talking to The Troll.

It's headline news because obsessive, anti-gay bigotry doesn't play in Peoria anymore. They might as well have been planning a prom that excluded Jews, or African Americans. The mainstream is beginning to see anti-gay hatred in the same light as white supremacy.

i don't need to look at a calendar of moon phases, 'cause da troll tells me a full moon approacheth. go crawl back into your hole, you spiteful little virgin.
22

lucky for Danny obsessive anti-religion bigotry still packs them in on Slog.

Frankly he's too old to learn a new schtick.
23
21

why? are you lonely?
24
I read the comments under the linked Newsbusters story.

Now I need some brain bleach.
25
Lots of unregistereds lately...hmmm wonder how that could be?
26
22, Can you point me to where Dan says that religious people shouldn't be allowed to marry, or have children?
27
@24, Agree. I too read some of the comments on that website. Scary shit!
28
damn. you ARE new here.....
29
22, Has Dan ever organized a prom that bans Christians?
30
now Bob, don't change the subject.
Have you been tested lately?
31
And it is kind of Danny to offer a corkscrew to retrieve wadded up panties, and share his patented technique....
32
31.

Well.

Since his probation forbids Danny to lick or buttfuck doorknobs anymore corkscrewing his ass is about the only fun he has these days.

According to sources.
33
30, It really upsets you that I'm a healthy gay man doesn't it?
34
33

No.

But considering you live in Baltimore it is a minor miracle.

Abstinence.

100% Safe & Foolproof.

just ask Bob.....
35
34

That's not really true, Troll.

Bob is proof that ButtUgly is even more Foolproof & Safe than Abstinence.
36
34, 35, It especially upsets you that I'm a sexually active, healthy gay man.

Huh... I've been reading Dan Savage since H.S., and that was a longer time ago than I'd like to admit, and I've never felt "herterobashed," whatever the hell that is. The comments were pretty special. Those folks are pretty darned fragile. You say one critical thing about their beliefs or their actions, and all of the sudden they're being bashed. And of course no one's read it. They already know ALL ABOUT IT from reading conservative columnists. I bet you probably none of them watched the Brian Brown interview.
39
37, It upsets you because your fear is the only thing holding you back from acting on your homosexual desires.
40
Some people thought Life of Brian was bashing Christianity. People who'd never seen it but demanded it be banned anyway. They haven't changed in 35+ years.
41
Poor widdle Cwistians, nobody will buy into to their whining martyr complex anymore.
42
@11 Sweet poetry!
43
To many right wing-nut Christians, telling them to stop trying to force their version of Biblical rules (that even they don't follow) onto others is tantamount to feeding them to the lions.
44
This is an article essentially saying, "Dan made fun of us and no one thought that was horrible!"

NewsBusters, you ate absolutely fact-based on this one. Great reporting.
45
I read the comments on that article. I do not recommend it, I feel dumber already.

I have to say, good on you Dan for dealing with this all.the.time. and still doing what you're doing, and thank you we are winning. Honestly, just reading the article and the comments makes me so angry and it's not even me it's attacking. Crazy shits.
46
Really? The "mainstream news" ignored a comment made by a blogger? Even if he *is* a columnist whose articles don't typically make it out of the "Escorts" section of the seediest left-wing rag in town?

Wow. Really, just wow. Please, do tell how the "mainstream media" is censoring the real news about my cat dying, or the tragic circumstances that lead to a drunkard's homelessness.

Oh, and Dan? I think it might be time to stop googling yourself. ;)
47
Unfortunately for Newsbusters, there is too much hate spewing from rightwing media personalities/journalists (including Fox News and Breitbart.com) to make any claims of "liberals do it too" sound plausible.
