Officials on college campuses across the nation are alarmed at a wave
of recent suicides involving Christians who have been harassed by
homosexual activists. The main stream media isn’t covering the story so,
as usual, I have taken it upon myself to do their jobs for them. None
of the following eight cases have been covered by any of the three major
Jonathan was a community college student in California. He was
giving a speech on the impact Jesus Christ has had in his life and in
the lives of others he knows. During the speech, he quoted a verse from
the Bible, which referred to the traditional definition of marriage. His
professor jumped up in the middle of the speech and shouted “You
fascist bastard.” He then refused to give Jonathan a grade for the
speech – sarcastically telling Jonathan he should “ask God what (his)
grade is.” Jonathan subsequently committed suicide.
Scott was a librarian at a university in Ohio. He was a member of
a committee charged with picking books for a freshman reading program.
He recommended a book called The Marketing of Evil, which was
critical of, among other things, homosexuality. A homosexual faculty
member publicly accused Scott of sexual harassment – merely for
recommending the book. Shortly thereafter, Scott took his own life.
Jennifer was a graduate student in Georgia. She was studying
counseling at the graduate level when word got out about her religious
objections to homosexuality. Some professors also found out that she
considered homosexuality to be a chosen lifestyle. Neal Boortz found out
and called her ugly names on his radio show. The university forced
Jennifer to go through a government-mandated thought control program,
which Neal Boortz had endorsed on air. She soon found herself facing the
prospect of expulsion from the university. She later killed herself in
the face of the Boortz-led witch hunt.
Crystal was an administrator at a university in Ohio. She wrote
an article for the local paper, which let homosexuals know that there
are ways to escape the lifestyle that ends their lives prematurely. She
told them they could find hope in God. But they were enraged. They
demanded that she be fired from her job – even though her opinions were
written and disseminated on her own time. They managed to get her fired.
Later, she took her own life.
Julia was a student at a university in Michigan. She was asked to
help a homosexual client by using “gay affirmation” therapy. But she
refused to do so because of her beliefs about homosexuality. (Note: It
is OK to refuse to provide gay correction therapy even if that is what
the client desires. But one must not refuse to provide gay affirmation
therapy). Julia was expelled from Eastern Michigan because of her
views. So she ended it all.
Graham was a freshman at a university in North Carolina. He was
taking a class in the political science department when the issue of gay
marriage came up. When Graham mentioned his opposition to same-sex
marriage his professor told him to shut up. He then threatened him with
prosecution under the university speech code. So Graham decided to file
suit. But before the suit was filed he took his own life.
Ruth was a student in Georgia. She was battling her campus speech
code in federal court when homosexual activists began spreading rumors
about her on the internet. They even called her a “bitch” for fighting
against the campus speech code. After they circulated pictures of her
Jewish co-plaintiff (doctored with swastikas) all over the internet she
decided she had had enough. So she took her own life.
Mike was a professor in North Carolina. The director of the local
LGBSTQQCCISA (Lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered, queer,
questioning, completely confused, indecisively-sexed, and allied) Center
kept sending him emails promoting LGBSTQQCCISA issues. The director of
the LGBSTQQCCISA Center admitted that she did it to provoke him. He felt
bullied. So he killed himself.
These eight cases are all true except for one thing: The
Christians who were bullied by gays and gay activists are all still
alive. Not a single one has committed suicide. That is because they have
centered their lives around Jesus Christ, rather than their sexual
identity. And no amount of bullying can change my mind about that.
