Talk about HATE rhetoric

There's this fellow named Dan Savage who is a hatemonger concerning all things Christian and biblical. He is an atheist, and has said some awful things about Christians and to Christians.

I'm all for allowing any U.S. citizen his right to free speech, and to voice his opinions, but when ABC and Disney buy into this hate-mongering by putting on a sitcom loosely based on this guy's life, I have to draw the line!

Media Research Center has put together a video about what this guy has been saying. It's quite shocking to me. Although, it probably isn't shocking to less sheltered people. I have MTV blocked on my TV. I find it quite distasteful. I don't listen to the shock jocks on radio so I wasn't exposed there. Perhaps, the most shocking thing I saw in this video is how Obama has endorsed Dan Savage and what he's been saying. Well... view the thing for yourself. What do you think?

Amazingly, Jesus died for this guy, too. No matter how despicable one's actions are, Jesus still offers His blood to cover them.

Love divine, all loves excelling, 
 joy of heaven, to earth come down; 
 fix in us thy humble dwelling; 
 all thy faithful mercies crown! 
 Jesus thou art all compassion, 
 pure, unbounded love thou art; 
 visit us with thy salvation; 
 enter every trembling heart. 

2. Breathe, O breathe thy loving Spirit 
 into every troubled breast! 
 Let us all in thee inherit; 
 let us find that second rest. 
 Take away our bent to sinning; 
 Alpha and Omega be; 
 end of faith, as its beginning, 
 set our hearts at liberty. 

3. Come, Almighty to deliver, 
 let us all thy life receive; 
 suddenly return and never, 
 nevermore thy temples leave. 
 Thee we would be always blessing, 
 serve thee as thy hosts above, 
 pray and praise thee without ceasing, 
 glory in thy perfect love. 

4. Finish, then, thy new creation; 
 pure and spotless let us be. 
 Let us see thy great salvation 
 perfectly restored in thee; 
 changed from glory into glory, 
 till in heaven we take our place, 
 till we cast our crowns before thee, 
 lost in wonder, love, and praise.
