The Freedom From Religion Foundation gave Savage their "Emperor Has No Clothes Award" for his expressed views on religion.

FFRF Co-President Dan Barker told The Christian Post in an interview last week that Savage receiving the honor both for his views on religion and for his work with the anti-bullying campaign "It Gets Better."

"So we're giving him an award for being outspoken about religion, but also because we really are impressed that he's saving lives," said Barker.

"Whereas before, young men and some women who were conflicted over their sexual identity, some of them killed themselves. And I think what he's doing – his concern, his care, his love for humanity to start this, is really worthy of recognition."
