Gay Buffalo Teen Commits Suicide After Being Bullied -by "Christians"

I'm FURIOUS. This 14 year old gay teenager in Buffalo, NY was bullied to the point of suicide.  He was harassed beyond belief. I looked at some of the videos on You Tube of this kid when he was struggling. After he died, comments from RELIGIOUS PEOPLE, people who are supposed "CHRISTIANS" wrote these HATEFUL comments on the boy's memorial video on You Tube:
 "Faggot lol" - posted by  tatis3 4 hours ago

"Poor kid he should have left that disgusting lifestyle alone it's against GOD and nature" - posted by


These are just THREE of the hateful, insensitive, Nasty, disgusting comments from "Christians."
I am done with Christianity. - I know that there are a lot of good, loving people who are Christians, but there are also a lot of weak-minded, hateful people who just follow what they want and use hatred and intolerance in the name of God.  If this is part of being a Christian - encouraging people who don't live like you do to take their own lives, there's NOTHING human in it. This is Barbaric. 
   I'm SICK of Republicans who use Religion to promote this kind of hatred. 
   I'm sick of churches and Evangelists encouraging and applauding this kind of barbaric behavior . There is nothing "Religious" about destroying innocent lives with intolerance, hatred, ignorance.  This has Nothing to do with Jesus and "love everyone."  - Rob
   

ABC News Story:     
Gay Buffalo Teen Commits Suicide on Eve of National Bullying Summi
ABC News-  Sept. 21, 2011- Jamey Rodemeyer sent out many signals on social networking sites that he was struggling with his sexuality, and although he encouraged others on YouTube to fight off the bullies, things didn't get better.
The Buffalo, N.Y., boy, 14, killed himself this weekend after posting an online farewell.
A student at Williamsville North High School, Jamey had been tormented for the past 12 months by cyberbullies who made disparaging comments with gay references on his Formspring account, a website that allows anonymous posts.
"JAMIE IS STUPID, GAY, FAT ANND [sic] UGLY. HE MUST DIE!" one post said, according to local reports. Another read, "I wouldn't care if you died. No one would. So just do it :) It would make everyone WAY more happier!"
Friends reported the bullying to guidance counselors. But everyone, including his mother, thought he had grown stronger.STORY/VIDEO: http://abcnews.go.com/Health/gay-buffalo-teen-commits-suicide-eve-national-bullying/story?id=14571861

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
