Barber “Explains” Gay Suicide

The utterly repulsive Matt Barber of the absurdly misnamed Liberty Counsel “explains” the high rate of gay teen suicides.

Barber concluded by claiming that “kids who are engaging in homosexual behavior often look inward and know that what they are doing is unnatural, is wrong, is immoral, and so they become depressed and the instances of suicide can rise there as well.”

Oh, of course. It has nothing to do with the fact that so many of them are disowned and abused by their own families. Or with the fact that they face immense harassment by their schoolmates. It’s because they secretly agree with Barber and they just can’t face the shame.
