Preventing gay youth suicide is immoral

Jim Burroway over at Box Turtle Bulletin has a strong stomach. He >reportson the latest fundraising letter from Tony Perkins, of the vile Family Research Council.

Seems Mr Perkins is livid that those terrible Democrats are recording videos for the It Gets Better Project, which encourages at-risk LGBT youth to hang in there, not to harm themselves, because they WILL find a better life.

Perkins writes,
Can you imagine George Washington, Ronald Reagan, or any other president telling school children that it’s okay to be immoral and that they’ll eventually feel better about it?

It’s disgusting. And it’s part of a concerted effort to persuade kids that homosexuality is okay and actually to recruit them into that “lifestyle.”
As Burroway writes,
Their solution to the youth suicide problem? More of the same name-calling from other kids and all of the adults around them — and even from the President and First Lady of the United States if he were to have his way.
Honestly, this makes it clear, doesn't it? Perkins and his ilk see no problem with gay youth suicide, or bullying of gay youth. He considers gays so disgusting that they'd rather see children dead by their own hands, rather than supported and loved as the people they are.

THe immorality here is not from the video project.

I really don't know how those people live with themselves....

And I wonder how much longer the rest of us can claim the word "Christian" when they have slimed and perverted it so badly...
