Lies appear in newspapers all the time. So, it's that you're so gullible that you'll believe anything that's printed. Got it now. It's not that you're evil, or stupid, it's just that you're too lazy to look for facts.

Which ones do you want?? If I post, will you believe them, or are you going to claim I made them up?

More proof that religion is one of the main causes of the bullying of kids:

Survey Links Religious Condemnation to LGBT Youth Suicides

"Results of a survey released Thursday show a majority of respondents believe that the condemnation of gay people by religious leaders contributes to the high suicide rate among LGBT youths. The survey of of 1,017 Americans from across the nation was conducted by The Public Religion Research Council between October 14 and 17."

CNN: "Two out of three Americans believe gay people commit suicide at least partly because of messages coming out of churches and other places of worship, a survey released Thursday found. More than four out of 10 Americans say the message coming out of churches about gay people is negative, and about the same number say those messages contribute "a lot" to negative perceptions of gay and lesbian people.
Catholics were the most critical of their own churches' messages on homosexuality, while white evangelical Christians gave their churches the highest grades, the survey found."

"Christians" should be so proud of themselves--nothing like trying to wipe out LGBT people by forcing children to take their own lives.

If I believed in a God, I would get up each morning and thank Him/Her/It that I am *not* you.

Ralph ~

You really don't belong on this thread. When the topic is sociopaths, *then* you can give us the benefit of your first-hand knowledge.
