Another suicide related to bullying?

At least that is what the family and friends of Jaheem Herrera are saying. The story does not mention the anti-gay nature of the harassment but the mother says it in the interview. Sounds like there were multiple issues involved as well. I don’t know all the circumstances but an investigation needs to be conducted.

This is very sad.

What if Focus on the Family and Exodus partnered with GLSEN and PFLAG to issue a joint statement and/or campaign to teach kids that bullying for any reason is immoral? What if the Christian groups made a concerted effort to reach out to youth group leaders with the message that calling kids gay, etc. is harmful?

Can I get a witness?

    Can I get a witness?

    Yes – Amen!

    Remember the song “Blowing in the Wind” by Peter, Paul and Mary? It asks some similar quesitons and has a similar theme to your post.

    The response was not adequate???

    IN a criminal sense that would be aiding and abetting by not interferring when the problem was brought to their attention.

    It is high time we left fear at the door – fear of being misunderstood, fear of being accused of capitulating to the “gay agenda” – and speak out and stand up on these basic issues of justice. It hits at the heart of the gospel – and there ought to be no hesitation whatsoever.

    Good work on these issues the last few weeks particularly Warren.

    If Focus on the Family and Exodus did that that would be wonderful!!!!

    Like that’s ever going to happen…. Many of the so-called “family” organizations cannot help but shade the truth or worse about homosexuality, what makes you think they even consider joining with GLSEN.
