Anti-gay loony Michael Brown was on an American Family Association radio show last week and he admitted that gay teenagers do commit suicide because of anti-gay bullying, but then said, in essence, that it’s no big deal because kids kill themselves for lots of other reasons too:
Brown: For every one kid, gay teen, that commits suicide because of bullying or because parents say ‘homosexuals go to hell’ or because they just feel ‘I have no future, I have no hope, I can never marry’ and so on, these should be weighty issues to us as Christians, this should hurt us, what if it’s our own kid? That’s why we need to look at every kid. But for every one that commits suicide for that cause, there are–is it dozens, is it scores, I don’t know the exact stats how it breaks down–but a whole lot more kids who commit suicide for other reasons, we never hear about them in the news! We don’t hear national campaigns about them!
But what about all the people who don’t die of cancer?
