The Toll of Mortal Sin

Irish Times:

ALMOST 20 per cent of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people have attempted suicide and almost all saw this as related to their sexual identity and the experiences of being abused and feeling isolated, a report to be published today has found.

The study, Supporting LGBT Lives: A Study of the Mental Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People, also found almost one-third of respondents had self-harmed at least once.

To be published today by Minister for Health Mary Harney, the study is the biggest carried out in the Republic into the mental health of gay, lesbian and transgender people.

It clearly shows, according to its authors, “the negative effects of stigmatisation, harassment and discrimination – what is termed ‘minority stress’ – on LGBT people”.

Not sure how they reached this causation theory. More likely we are seeing the Toll of Mortal Sin. I bet dollars to doughnuts that adulterers have elevated rates of suicide, I'll also bet you'll find the same suicide rates in metro San Francisco, CA, USA, thereby nullifying the "stigmatisation" red herring.

What the homosexuals need is love and compassion. Real love. Not phoney liberal love that fiendishly enslaves the homosexual in their own sin. Liberal love only increases the love of the liberal for himself, it is self-reward for how "tolerant" he is. Instead Christian love is needed, it listens, it befriends but it firmly guides people to the holiness that they are themselves capable of. A holiness that they fully deserve.
