Tragic and well compiled read by Mormon father who lost his son to suicide. The statistics and well studied “rejecting behaviors” that the Mormon church is continuing to teach and promote, is well thought through by Brian Bresee. This is why I often share my righteous anger and indignation by calling out top leaders of my church. This kind of teaching… which leads to in-group micromanagement and bullying has no place in any entity that would bear the name of “Christ.”
