    "There's no correlation between inacceptance [sic] of homosexuality and depression and suicide," Perkins told NPR.

    Here's how Perkins explained the issue:

    "These young people who identify as gay or lesbian, we know from the social science that they have a higher propensity to depression or suicide because of that internal conflict," he says.

    Homosexuality is "abnormal," he says, and kids know it, which leads them to despair. That's why he wants to confront gay activism in public schools. For example, his group supports the Day of Truth, when Christian high-schoolers make their case that homosexuality is a sin.

    Maybe we should just rename this country to "Divided Theocracy of America."

    In fact, that would be a great idea because then, all these fuckers sitting at huge buffets talk shit about "fags" would be fined and imprisoned for gluttony, which is also a sin.

    And yet again, as usual, America completely forgets that there are other countries out there (Canada? You don't even have to cross any ocean for it) with which you can make a comparison to see that this is total bullcrap.

    The Divided Theocracy of America indeed. Ruled by the United Morons.

    I pledge allegiance, to the Divided Theocracy of America. And to the dumb republic, who criticize fags, yet do every sin... in their buffets, while cheating on their spouses, will be imprisoned and justice for all.

    How is it possible to be that stupid?

    QUOTE AUTHOR GOES HERE"These young people who identify as gay or lesbian, we know from the social science that they have a higher propensity to depression or suicide because of that internal conflict," he says.


    And just who put it there?

    Being left-handed, or tall, or a genius is “abnormal”. But if you have a bunch of bigots like Perkins telling the left-handed, or tall people, geniuses that they are “abnormall”, I suspect you’d get the same results: depression, etc.

    “… his group supports the Day of Truth, when Christian high-schoolers make their case that homosexuality is a sin.”’


    Regardless of the fact that many main-stream religions are starting to say otherwise, and regardless that there is nothing in the bible saying that any state of being is a sin. And, of course, regardless of the fact that the bible is much harder on people who go around condemning others, feeling righteous, eating shellfish, etc. What an idiot!

    These people are depressingly stupid. How can we get them to feel depressed about it, and suicidal?
