    Another triumph for god fearing Americans, one less queer in the world. Every person who walks through the doors of any church and helps to finance the gay hate campaign has blood on his/her hands. I am sick of hearing “they’re not all like that.” They’re ALL like that!

    One less faggot, PRAISE THE LORD ! Can’t see how the right-wing christian crazies explain that to GOD and the kids who are dead when THEY make the transition.

    It is about time these people who bully and cause suicides are dealt with and charged with murder. They have no business saying they are Christians. People who truly follow Christ would know that this behaviour is the sin and the victim is valued by God as are all.

    Sorry for the all caps comment about to follow, but I feel that I have to yell to get my point across to parents:


    Again, sorry for the all caps. But, I am getting extremely fed up and upset with all of these kids killing themselves over being bullied, the parents complaining to the schools (as they should), but the school not taking any action or not enough action and the bullying continues and the child kills him/her self.

    This is what I would do if I had a kid in school. I would not hesitate to take my kid out of school and do whatever it takes to see that they continue their education. Even if I have to do it myself!

    Oh, and I also believe that there should be a law that the bullies and those adults that did nothing to stop it should be forced to attend the funeral of their victim. Yes, victim.

    It’s because of their actions or in-actions that the kid committed suicide! So, they should be a live witness to what they have wrought!

    It is unbelievable to me how some people will go so far to push a person to the edge like this. Yes, this is how the kid was, he was reportedly Gay. But there is nothing that the kid could do about it. Being gay is not a choice, you are born with it. There have actually been scientific studies that have proved that being gay is in your genes and DNA.

    Approving of this bullying that pushed to a suicide is wrong. No matter if you believe that gays are a sin or not. A human life was LOST. How can you argue that death is better than a person being gay? God still values everyone and knows that they are flawed. He does not want them killed.

    But Emily, it says in the bible “They must be put to death.”. That kinda contradicts what you’re saying and if killing them is okay then surely bullying them isn’t a problem either.

    But wouldn’t you see the killing of anyone immoral and unjust?

    You cannot truly consider yourself a Christian if you condone the suicide (or the bullying leading to the suicide) of a gay boy. Homosexuality is not a sin. Gays are born gays, and that is fine. There is nothing sinful about homosexual lifestyles, as the majority of them are good honest people, like most heterosexuals. They are normal people, so keep your noses out of their sexual lifestyle. God is not ignorant, and god loves everyone. So try to be more like god.

    How can anybody say they are “Christian”, or “Catholic”, or any other religous member, be so into God, and yet say junk like “God hates H*m*’s, G*y’s, etc? Isn’t God all-powerful, and all-loving? Didn’t he create everybody EQUAL?

    I live PROUDLY in Campbell, CA where Mayor Evan Lowe was just sworn in as MAYOR. He is an amazing person, and we should all take a page from his book.

    Do you REALLY want to know what I think? I don’t believe in the devil as a person. The “devil” is the evil insode everybody. He represents something different in all. However, it’s just plain sad when the “devil” acts likes this.

    It’s too bad racism and sexism still exists. I can;t believe that in this day, age, and economy, people are still blind. Just think about this….. how many of you haters out there watch Ellen, Meridith Baxter, or many of the others????

    GOD BLESS!!!!!! You are the ones that need it the most!

    ) Bullying did not lead to the suicide of an 11 year old boy in DeKalb County. That’s the finding of a report on the death of Jaheem Herrera.

    DeKalb County school officials released their final report Wednesday, which says the boy’s death could not be attributed solely to “a simplistic case of bullying.”

    The report cites numerous factors that led to the suicide, including what investigators say was domestic abuse between the boy’s mother and her boyfriend.

    Jaheem was found hanged in his home in April. At the time of his death, his mother blamed excessive and constant bullying from other students at Dunaire Elementary School in Stone Mountain.

    The attorney for the family are dismissing the report, saying the school system is trying to shift attention away from problems at the school.

    Retired Fulton County Judge Thelma Wyatt Cummins Moore conducted the investigation and had released its preliminary findings in May. The report released on Wednesday is the final conclusions of the investigation.

    In May, Moore said there was no evidence that Jaheem’s death was due to bullying, and that school officials had acted quickly and efficiently when Jaheem had been involved in fights at the school.

    Moore says Jaheem’s teachers and the staff and administrators at Dunaire dispute the boy’s mother’s contention that she had complained repeatedly about Jaheem being bullied. The report says Jaheem was a good student and was well liked.

    The judge also documented domestic violence charges that have been filed against Norman Keene, the live-in boyfriend of Masika Bermudez, Jaheem’s mother. Those accusations go back to when they lived in St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and in Georgia.

    I’m so sick and tired of people coming on here thinking that they are such a good parent saying they know exactly what they would do. You don’t know anything! Just because a parent complains to the school doesn’t mean everything is solved! Just cause the school does something about it doesn’t mean its actually going to be solved, and the kid doesn’t speak out!! And sorry but not everyone is f*cking rich and can’t just move their kid to a new school, some people have to pay extra money to put their child in a new school and what if the parent doesn’t have that “extra” money then what do they do? Huh? Take them out of school so they don’t get any education, just cause you have your life so god damn made doesn’t mean everyone else does, so please just stop saying what you would do, cause its NOT easy!
