    a statement from McAteer's family.

    'He was reared in a Christian home where he was taught about the love and sovereignty of God, and, most importantly, the grace and forgiveness found through His son, Jesus Christ,' they said.

    'Thankfully, Luke knew the Lord, and had recently rededicated his life. He had been pursuing a daily relationship with Christ in the recent weeks before his unfortunate loss with the battle of depression.'

    His family pretty much killed him. That and his extremes (Fundy to Porno?).

    The complexities of suicide stem from major depressive disorder or bipolar -- yes religion or other circumstances can exacerbate suicide or risky behaviors.

    I've read South Korea suicide rates are very high. They supposedly still have Confucius views and blame themselves for their own mental anguish. So religion could have played a role in his suicide, but it could easily have been his genetics.

    Also if he did have bipolar, and becoming a porn star was out of character for him, mania or hypomania could have been a cause. Obviously not all porn stars have mental illnesses, but the fact he committed suicide shouldn't be blamed on religion alone.

    I'm sure saying all of this also gave his parents some closure and peace in their community. May he rest in peace.
