Roseanne Blogs About Marie Osmond's Son, Claims He Committed Suicide Because He Was Gay

| Filed under: When Celebrities BlogRoseanne

The always outspoken Roseanne took to her blog to express her feelings about the tragic suicide of Marie Osmond's son, Michael Bryan.

She writes:

"marie osmonds poor gay son killed himself

because he had been told how wrong and how sick he was every day of his life by his church and the people in it. Calling that "depression" is a lie!

Yet the Osmonds still talk lovingly about their church, saying nothing about its extremely anti-gay Crusade. Marie also has a gay daughter! Hey, I want her and all the gay kids in the world to know that they are just fine being gay and that they deserve love and respect instead of insults and rebuke! I have gay people in my family and my circle of friends and I am kicking bigot ass and taking names!

That is how its done in my religion—(I have my own religion that I made up for myself and it is a great religion that actually works and respects facts and not fantasy!)

Gerald Lund one of the ex church apostles has three gay kids himself.

Yet, even though the people they say they love the most in all of their public displays and speeches (THEIR KIDS AND FAMILY!!) are gay,– their own children,for crying out loud- these people cannot find the christian decency and compassion within themselves to stop their hypocritical gay bashing!!

How sickening. I know so many mormon kids who were gay and committed suicide, and I just cannot and will not stay quiet in order to not offend bigots anymore. It is all so terribly depressing.

Marie please don't talk about how your faith in your church has helped you get through this one! Please get some integrity and tell that church of yours that you will leave it and stop giving it ten percent of your money if they don't stop trying to destroy your kids' and all gay people's civil rights and dreams and hopes!!

G-d is trying to use you for something good and this is your opportunity! Your church is wrong and on the wrong wrong wrong side of things! Get as vocal about that as you are about your diet. G-d bless you too, Marie.

Take a hard look at the facts now as you use this very sad time for introspection, healing growth and prayer, and become a strong symbol for loving mothers who make no apologies for hatred against their own kids!"

"yes i know that people get mad at me for the things i say

here that they think are insensitive and unkind. I say what I think needs to be said, though, and I always will, even if nobody listens. I really could care less. My opinion is my own and is well thought out. I decided a long time ago that I would not cower and stay silent when I feel things are wrong, whether it wins me fans money or praise or the opposite of those things. I am not a wimp, I am no democrat!"

Thoughts??

    Good for her, thank God we have someone willing to speak the truth. Religion is so hypocritical and it is a tragedy if his family's mormon beliefs led to his demise.



  2. 2

    She needs to shut the fuck up about other people's children and what they may or not have been thinking when they took their own lfe.

  3. Laury says – reply to this

    Usually I think of Roseanne as a crazy bitch, but I think this time she's right. I sympathize with Marie Osmond for the loss of her son, but if he did kill himself because his religion taught him that it was wrong to be gay, then she needs to find a new religionn that will be more supportive of people's rights.



  4. 4

    Although I do not think that this is Roseanne's place to make these statements, I do kind of have to agree with her. If that is the case, that he really did commit suicide because he was Gay and the Mormon church didn't accept him, that is truly sad. I myself have gone through depression, and I know what it is like to have so much held up inside and wanting to burst because no one around you seems to care. I cannot even fathom what that is like for someone who is gay, and cannot be who he or she is because Religion divides them from their family. You cannot help who you truly are.



  5. 5

    The Mormon Church is one of the most gay-hating ever. Suicide among gay youth in the US is very high. What Roseanne blogs about makes sense.



  6. 6

    ignorant. From what's come out, the poor young man suffered from bipolar issues that manifested in depression while in a manic state. Depression mixed with mania is when most folks with bipolar disorder have the motivation to actually go through with suicidal thoughts. This is biological, not political Roseanne you dumb ass. And Marie already has a lesbian daughter she's supportive of. Roseanne needs to take care of her own kids and stop being such a self righteous bitch.



  7. 7

    Celebrities need to shut up and I need to stop reading your site because it is ignorant.



  8. 8

    Roseanne is nothing more than a fame whore - resorting to anything to get her name in the news. I don't believe that Roseanne was a close personal friend of the Osmond family and therefore, is in no position to discuss the sexuality of Osmond family members nor their religious beliefs or any other personal matters. It's simply none of Roseanne's business if he was gay and it's none of ours either. Shame on Roseanne Barr. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding this young man's death - may he rest in peace and my prayers are with the Osmond family during this most difficult time.



  9. 9

    and before people start ragging on Marie Osmond for her religion, she was AGAINST prop. 8 and was vocal about being against it. And like I said before, her daughter is a lesbian who she is very close to. Stop painting such horrible generalizations Roseanne when you don't even know the situation.



  10. 10

    She is very cool. Good for her for speaking out. Remember how the Mormons backed Prop. 8? They OUGHT to fucking lose their tax exempt status. More people should speak out against the utter bullshit of this and other religions.

    Roseanne grew up in Utah; she has a Lesbian sister, and has herself always been outspoken about gay issues.



  11. 11

    I agree with her BUT it is too soon to be talking about this show some RESPECT



  12. 12

    I like Roseanne and I agree with what she says about the whole church thing, but how does she know Marie's son was gay? was it said before?



  13. 13

    Good for Roseanne!
    These children need to know that they are fine and loved…who wouldn't be depressed when you are despised just for being who you are!?



  14. 14

    what a bitch. Did she look into this kid's medical history to make her assessment? this pisses me off. I really think it sucks the mormon church backed prop.8 and have not allowed gays to marry in theri church. But to take a personal tragedy that NONE of us know anything about, and then project political issues onto is DISRESPECTFUL to this poor young man who was in a lot of pain. Don't make this a political issue when there' sno proof it is to begin with. That's bullshit.



  15. 15

    She's a fucking idiot.



  16. 16

    I think she's right on this one. Listen to what the man who wrote "Milk" had to say about it.



  17. 17

    Bravo. Standing Ovation !!!



  18. 18

    PS: She's completely conjecturing here, she has no insight into the state of this kid's mind or the family situation whatsoever. What a bitch.



  19. 19

    cudos roseanne!!



  20. 20

    None of your business Rosanne - let the poor family have their privacy to grieve in peace right now!

  21. Heh says – reply to this


    21

    Thoughts?? How about a standing ovation !!



  22. 22

    Roseanne's bitter because she was a Jew brought up in Utah and never quite fit in with the Mormons. That aside…. Hey Roseanne, maybe you should try suicide. No one but the people living on your dime would really care.



  23. 23

    I respect her opinion…but there's a time and place for everything. It's just a little too soon. The boy was just only buried recently….



  24. 24

    I love Roseanne!!! She is my favorite bitch of all time :) And as for Mormons, there is something wrong with a religion that only gives to their own (Mormon) charities, and refuses to help out with the rest of the world!



  25. 25

    He didn't commit suicide because he's gay. He did it so Marie could get on Oprah. She hasn't had any crises to cry about on the talk show circuit since fake fainting on DWTS. He took one for the team, mama needs some attention.



  26. 26

    Roseanne's the BOMB but if this is true-DAMN.
    There are too many reports lately about people getting into trouble, hurt and killed because they can't be who they are. It's sickening. I love gay people but I am so glad I'm straight. Life is sometimes too much to deal with as it is and (wacky religious)people can be such viscious assholes!.
    And it is too soon to throw it Marie's face. Needs to be done yes, but..
    Roseanne was never one to hold back.



  27. 27

    and don't forget, this is the same cow who said her father raped her and her whole family said she's a liar and an attention seeker. She's just a crazy, delusional bitch.



  28. 28

    It's completely true what Roseanne is saying. People may find her opinions too strong and in bad taste but everything she is saying is absolutely true. Marie's religion promotes nothing but prejudice and hate and how parents could choose to still devote themselves, and being a celebrity promote it, when it goes about making their children's lives a living hell is beyond me! GO ROSEANNE!!!



  29. 29

    Gotta agree with Rosanne!



  30. 30

    When your CAREER is over, take to a blog.
    .
    She's a loser who skipped on her 1st husband once she had a little success.



  31. 31

    at this point, not enough information has been given to determine why he took his own life. it could have been due to depression. it could have been depression induced by the clash between the mormon faith and leading a gay lifestyle.

    whatever the reason, suicide is a tragic event for anyone, and perhaps before roseanne decides to go on a tirade against the mormon church and its stance on homosexuals, she should have some compassion for a grieving family and shut.the.fuck.up.

    but that would require taste and human decency…



  32. 32

    While I find her blog…raving, I CAN say that I have met several young Mormons who have attempted suicide after realizing they are gay. I have no idea who Marie Osmond's son was or if he was gay, but if he WAS, she should seriously take a step back and examine whether or not her participation is sending a healthy message to young people who are like her son.



  33. 33

    Thank you Roseanne. This is one hundred percent true. Thank you for speaking out. Im sorry if she was half as vocal about this as she was "he diet" she could help one if not ten gay youth understand suicide is never the answer. Then her sons death would not be in vain.



  34. 34

    If what she's saying is true then more celebrities should speak out. It's very hypocritical to make money in the entertainment business but still not be able to afford and real love or comfort to your own child because they're gay. Meanwhile presenting yourself as this wonderful and loving family.



  35. 35

    Tell us again how you were molested by your parents as a child and had suppressed the memories Roseanne. Did you ever publicly apologize for that? You were so crazy even that apeshit crazy Tom Arnold, who was your husband at the time, thought you were crazy, and that's REALLY CRAZY. At your best you were annoying but now you're totally irrelevant, old and washed up. You have a lot of nerve stomping on a mother who just lost a child.



  36. 36

    Amen.

  37. chiro says – reply to this


    37

    How the hell does she know?! No one will ever know why he did what he did and for her to use Marie Osmond's misfortune for her own media attention is flat out shameful!! GO AWAY HASBEEN!



  38. 38

    I love you, Roseanne!!! thank you….



  39. 39

    Rosanne Grew up in a city currounded by Mormons. She knows how horrible they are to gays in their church. not only do they try to force the kids to get married, but if the child won't hide that they are gay the church encourages to the parents to turn their backs on them telling them that "They are not the child you once knew, they are full of evil now and need to be sent out." It isn't a shock that a church that wouldn't allow blacks full membership until around 1980 is still out there being bigoted. Good for Roseanne!

  43. 43

    I'VE HEARD THIS A MILLION TIMES ABOUT THE MORMON CHURCH AND THE GAY SUICIDES BECAUSE OF THEIR FAITH AND FAMILIES. But she should not have done that to Marie. At least not yet. And how does she know for a fact that this is the case?



  44. 44

    KILL RELIGION SAVE THE WORLD…

    Roseanne make a lot of good points! It was on the news here that his note made clear his reasons and that the family had chose the church over him.. (they said) that the note said he loved them anyway.

  45. 45

    How dare she! I'm Morom and I find this really up-setting. How dare she use something so tragic and personal to get some attention. The LDS Church is NOT in any way shape or form anti gay. I know this for a fact, as a member I know of plenty of LDS members who are gay. I say this as a person not as a Mormon, but I hope she gets hit by a car.



  46. 46

    Wow, Why would someone attack a family and basically accuse them of contributing to their own son's suicide? That is sick. Especially in such a public forum. Just because she wants some press!



  47. 47

    Re: ladynTO – said…..
    I agree with her BUT it is too soon to be talking about this show some RESPECT
    ______________

    What respect, Marie's schedule has her back performing in Vegas the DAY AFTER her son's funeral. Where is HER respect?!



  48. 48

    Roseanne keeps it real. People are born gay. If you are a true Christian you know that it is not your place to judge. If your child is gay, they're just gay.



  49. 49

    I agree with what she is saying, but it is impossible for her to know all the reasons of why this young man decided to end his life. I don't think she should be expressing her opinion so publicly as though they were fact, and so soon after his death.



  50. 50

    I say now is not the time. Love me some Rosie, but there is a place and time to say certain things. From my understanding, Marie has an open gay daughter. She supports her completely. If her son were gay, and she and the family were against it, why would she allow him to be in the middle of it in L.A., and attend a fashion school? It was probably depression and only depressin. If it was the ga issue, let her address it in her own time.



  51. 51

    I think shes right.



  52. 52

    Hey, somebody had to say it. Somebody whose words would be heard far and wide. It just isn't possible to be Mormon, gay, AND happy/normal/well-adjusted. Because those people spend their entire childhoods, their entire lives, knowing that what they are, on the inside, is something their entire families as well as most everyone they grew up around feels is an abomination, a sin, a work of the devil. And yet they can't stop feeling the way they feel or being who they are, or they just can't keep hiding it anymore, and the anguish overtakes, consumes and destroys them, like we've just seen. THAT is, in my humble opinion, the biggest evil being done here. Sorry, but I think Ro is 100% right here, and if nobody close to Marie is going to say this to her, then who better than Roseanne, who is KNOWN, by career reputation, to be mouthy, opinionated, and outspoken.



  53. 53

    I agree with Roseanne! Funny,but the first thing I thought is that Marie's son might have been gay. I hope,if that were the case,that Marie will speak out about it. We need more people who are willing to accept us,so that more kids don't feel that suicide is the only choice. Too many kids have died or are dying because society is pushing it on them with all this bullshit . Try watching the movie,"Prayers for Bobby". It shows exactly this. I give Roseanne and anyone who let's kids know that being gay is okay,all the credit in the world.



  54. 54

    Roseanne is 100% dead on with this one! I love her courage!!!



  55. 55

    Anyone who doesn't agree with that she is saying is a closed minded idiot! lol She makes 100% sense!!!!



  56. 56

    i think its rediculous that people just judge this situation, noone knows what really happend so its stupid for people to think that is was the mormons that did it. I am gay and a mormon and i havnt been persicuted for it, i have been welcomed in still by the poeple at church and they still treat me the same. As for PROP 8, why should they legalize gay marriage when its not allowed in the religion? How hypocritical would that be? And if they had, then everyone would have still complained because they are going against the beleifs of the religion. As for the person who says we jsut give to our own charities, that is stupid becasue im pretty sure we were one of the first teams in Haiti and everywhere else that needed aid, so please please get your facts straight before you being down someone elses beliefs. Even if he did feel that way and was so depressed dont generalize the whole religion for it.



  57. 57

    Wow, I suddenly have newfound respect for her. Very very true.



  58. 58

    WOW. All you people who think Mormons are gay haters… Shut the heck up! Yeah, you can tell I'm Mormon by how I don't need to use profanity. Unless you are ACTUALLY Mormon, and are a MEMBER of the Mormon church, you have no room to be talking about them hating the gays. It's not true. If you open your eyes, the church is VERY accepting of ANYone, be it Gay, black, Mexican, Down-syndrome, or anorexia. They don't like when people ACT on those intentions. And you know what? That's FINE. Let people believe what they want! Aside from that, it was WAY inappropriate for Roseanne to be making statements like that. Its not only tacky, but EXTREMELY disrespectful. It's barley been a week. By the way, the church, like I said, accepts everyone. They just don't approve of people acting on those impulses. If you don't agree, that's fine. But that's your opinion. But don't say they hate the gays, there are many leaders in the church who are very compassionate. Anyway, let the yelling start.



  59. 59

    I knew this would come out, Mormans are a dangerous cult……



  60. 60

    I don't even think the child is in the ground yet. . .so classy Roseanne!

    And FYI. . .People, my mother, LOVES, and is BEST FRIENDS with my gay brother. . .even though they differ on the topic. . .LOVE IS POSSIBLE WITHOUT AGREEING ALL THE TIME!!!

    That is the truth!

    62

    maybe roseanne is right but I think its mental illness that drives people to suicide and it isnt necesarily connected to his homosexuality. suicide is when you dont see any light at the end of your personal tunnel when you just think everything is over for you and you see no way out. something was wrong mentally with this obviously tormented person and I dont think it was solely gender related, he clearly has famous busy parents that probably didnt give him all the love and attention he craved. just look at this woman she is back working already not even taking a week to grieve for her son. but who knows maybe work lets her cope…I couldnt do it though, I would be devestated if I had a son and he killed himself in such a horrible way.



  63. 63

    Good for Roseanne! I do feel for Marie and her family. But I had a feeling from the time I heard about this that he was gay. How many more of our children have to die because of religion?!



  64. 64

    The LDS church teaches that being gay is just a temptation and if you don't act upon it you will not go to hell. I read an article in the Salt Lake Tribune a couple of months about a gay man who was mormon. He had a partner and he said in the article that when they were together he was the happiest. Then he decided to go back to the church. I think life is about love not about death (or what will happen after). I think the man in the article is a coward. He gave up the best moments of his life because he was afraid of what may or may not happen after death. I think this is the case with Marie Osmond. She is a coward. I'm sure she loves her son but she shouldn't stick up for a church that put him in so much pain. I think the problem with most christian religions is they forget who Jesus Christ was. He was all about compassion, love and forgiveness. I see none of those qualities in most christians because they are so focused on hating or changing people who go against the bible. Just love.



  65. 65

    I feel very sorry for Marie and her family for their loss. I also agree 100% with Roseanne.



  66. 66

    WOW! YOU GOTTA LOVE ROSEANNE…TELL IT LIKE IT IS! I BELIEVE HER…SORRY TO SAY. IF THIS IS INDEED TRUE, HOW SAD FOR MARIE'S SON. I WONDERED WHY IN INTERVIEWS MARIE USED TO GET ALL CHOKED UP TALKING ABOUT HER SON'S "REHAB" MAYBE HE WAS JUST GAY AND SHE COULDN'T ACCEPT IT. MORMANS ARE MORMANS AND IF HE DID KILL HIMSELF OUT OF SHAME FROM THE CHURCH AND HIS FAMILY - THAT'S JUST FUCKIN SAD…REALLY SAD. I HAVE TO AGREE WITH ROSEANNE AND ALL OF HER THOUGHTS HERE!



  67. 67

    I agree with Roseann 100%-

    VeganVal lose their tax exempt status over what? It's a social issue same as legalizing drugs and non-profits have the right to voice an opinion even with money about it. If you take away that right for the ones you disagree with someone else will take away that right for the non-profits that supported your opinion.



  70. 70

    TRUTH



  71. 71

    Conservatives want gay suicide and they want patriotic gays to be thrown out of the military.



  72. 72

    What's up with this site? Quotes by washed up old farts like Hulk Hogan and Roseanne Barr? These geezers are irrelevant, and nobody really cares what they think.



  73. 73

    good for her. i love roseanne. this all needed to be said. people are too judgemental and hurtful. we need to wake up and realize what we do and say to people can cause harm. who cares if someone is straight or gay..everyone deserves to be happy no matter what. thanks roseanne for standing up and saying what needed to be said!!

    Excuse me if I'm wrong, but I thought Marie has a lesbian daughter whom she loves and supports?



  77. 77

    because Rosannes' life is perfect??? I am sure Marie is a good mother and loves her children, and has found a way to be true to both her kids and her mormon faith.



  78. 78

    I am a christian and I support EVERY word Roseanne said! I'm so tired of hypocrisy in religion–It's insulting and sad!



  79. 79

    Re: Aussieone – I don't give two hoots what the media "speculated" or reported. Unless a copy of the suicide note is published, none of us will never know so please stop with the assumptions that he was gay.



  80. 80

    Re: TheMainMan – Not acting on those impulses means you're not being true to yourself. So your church is basically asking people to not be themselves which is very wrong. You accept them but expect them not to be themselves? No, that isn't accepting everyone.



  81. 81

    Love her. Tell it like it is Roseanne!



  82. 82

    How does she know Marie's son was gay? Was it a known fact? How can she assume that he took his life for that reason? Was it in his note? She seems pretty presumptious here, although some of what she said does have merit. The church of Roseanne is an amusing concept.



  83. 83

    Wow. That was awesome. Hey Roseanne…not too shabby. Time to go back on Howard and spread the "word" and take me with you! The Mormons almost single handedly are responsible for the downfall of Prop 8. I say screw the Mormons and their magic underwear plus the litters and litters of offspring they poop out daily. Can't even watch Big Love. p.s. screw Tom Arnold

    Re: TheMainMan

    You are such a fucken tool:
    *
    You write the church is fine with gays: "They don't like when people ACT on those intentions."
    *
    Act on those intentions who the fuck are you ? People are who they are… Act on those intentions is that persons RIGHT TO LOVE AND BE LOVED.
    *
    So your church is fine if they are gay as long as they pretened its wrong and live sad and lonley lifes… You just proved Roseannes point you fuck wit.
    *
    When did you choose to be straight ? How many gay relationships did you have before you made the choice ?
    *
    People are who they are.
    *
    You and your church in the words of south park: "Dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum"

    Re: EvaDiva – Wow you must be REALLY dumb. You can't even spell MORMONS right? And it's been typed for you like, 8 BILLION times on here. And you did it more than once. Let's learn the TRUTH maybe? If he felt shunned, that's his own problem. Or the PEOPLE… Yes PEOPLE who shunned him. If you and anyone else can read on here, like all the Mormons have stated, the church doesn't SHUN gay people. I WISH I COULD TYPE EVEN BIGGER SO PEOPLE WILL GET IT THROUGH THEIR THICK HEADS THAT THE MORMON CHURCH DOESN'T SHUN ANYONE!!!! Now PEOPLE, on the other hand are a whole different thing. I can shun you as a person for eating meat, but that doesn't mean that the Mormon church is shunning you too. You can't judge a GROUP based on your reaction to people from in the group when it doesn't include everyone.



  86. 86

    Well said Roseanne! Love this woman



  87. 87

    Re: oohlala8 – If you spent 30 seconds doing some research, you would see that the Mormon church donates millions of dollars and hours doing humanitarian aid across the world. There were thousands of Mormons that went to New Orleans right after Katrina. There are hundreds of Mormon Dr's and Nurses in Haiti and Chile right now helping to save lives. They send food, clothing, school supplies, wheelchairs, and money to impoverished nations and victims of disasters. They teach English, infant CPR, and basic skills around the world as well as job training and placement. They also provide funds for people to go to college if they can't afford it. Does that sound like an organization that only helps out their own?
    Yes, I am Mormon. I was against Prop 8, but only because I don't think it should have anything to do with the Federal Government. Yes, being gay isn't what comes to mind when one thinks of the traditional Mormon lifestyle. However, I know several gay people and parents of gay people in my church and the parents have nothing but love for their children. Mormons don't hate gays. We love everyone and try to treat everyone with respect and kindness.

    Re: cuppcakez – Ok. So according to YOU, not acting on your impulses isn't being true to yourself. So let's see… I'm feeling the impulse to smoke some crack today. If I don't do it, I'm not being true to myself. I'm ALSO feeling the impulse to shoot you… Hmmm if I don't do THAT, then I guess, ha, I'm not being true to myself. WOW! Thanks for pointing it out to me! It's SOOOO clear now! I'ma go do those things that I have IMPULSES to do, right now! Let's see how it turns ok, mk?

    Re: Spindoc – What respect, Marie's schedule has her back performing in Vegas the DAY AFTER her son's funeral. Where is HER respect?!

    YEAH really and people want to bitch cuz Rosanne made a comment about a Celebrities child who died IN THE PUBLIC EYE! It's not like they kept it all a secret and Rosanne is commenting on something PRIVATE she is giving her opinion on something that has been made VERY PUBLIC! Which I FIND her correct and bold in doing.

    If it is a known fact that he is gay, then she is walking a fine line in speculating that his sexuality led to his suicide. I think it is insensitive and none of her business but there is some righteousness in her rant.

    If he was in the closet it is really wrong for Roseanne to speculate about his sexuality in addition to speculating as to whether that led to his suicide after he is dead and the family is grieving.

    Re: jaygay – You're so right… that faint on DWTS was so fake it made me a little sick. This family have snaked their way back into the media spotlight and I could see it coming back then and everytime I see (especially her) them on tv I cringe.

    I am a Christian person who is being challenged right now in finding a church that either believes women should not be in any leadership roles, or gay people are an abomination or have no diversity (and do not want any). Have most Christians read the Bible??? More Christian people need to try to be Christ-like instead of Christian. Very tired of these churches deciding being gay is wrong. perhaps he was in rehab to try to "fix" him from being gay. I don't know. I would not be part of any religion or organization that did not accept my child just as beautiful and perfect as they were gay or not. Maybe Roseanne's timing wasn't great, but she makes a great point. We are losing too many young people for a lack of attention to their needs and acceptance.

    I also want to add that I know many straight ex mormans. They finally realized it was all a bunch of bullshit and quit.

    GOD DOES NOT EXIST. I mean really, there is a magical all powerful being sitting in the clouds, that can hear prayers, know EVERYONES thoughts and has total control and credit of all the GOOD things on earth, yet no responsibility for the bad, even though "good" wouldn't exist WITHOUT "bad"???? What possesses people to actually BELIEVE that shit?????

    Mormons are the most homophobic church in history. They also don't let women become priests. They didn't let Blacks become priests until the 1970s. Fact. So not only are they homophobic, they're also sexist and racist. Who would want to be part of a closed-minded institution like that— unless their parents forced them into it

    She is right about everything she said.
    God is God.
    God is not the church.
    The church is a disgrace.
    Marie, may God help you and us all.

    One of my gay friends also tried to kill himself when he was a teenager.
    It happens.
