An update to my last post about Channing Smith

Here is another news article about the 16 year old boy who was outed as gay by cyberbullies.   This report gives more details and also shows photos of the boy.  Hugs

  1. What a waste of a young life, taken away because someone chose to be nasty aand publish damning material that didn’t belong to them.

    • What’s really terrifying is there will be those in the guilty circle that will actually celebrate his death saying … one less “fag” to worry about.

    • Hello David. Yes. He died because to him having everyone know he had an attraction to another boy, that him and the other boy were trading sexual messages were worse than death! I really hope people are looking out for the other boy! Think about this, as an adult with nothing to lose I don’t care if people know I am gay. In fact most of my life I did not care. But there were times when being gay cost me promotions, cost me jobs, got me beaten up, made me an outcast, and has cost me people who I thought were my friends. How much worse is it for a teenager? I was denied a rental when the owner found out I was openly gay. Oh Odin, we can not have a homosexual renting from us!

      The real problem David is that all the kids are hearing in churches , on conservative TV stations, from parents and teachers who are Republican is that being LGBTQ is wrong, evil, an abomination of god. The kids who put his messages in the open did so because they also were taught it was wrong to be gay boys, not allowed of them to do post their private messages. If this had been between a boy and girl it would have been OK and no one would have died. How screwed up is the message we tell kids that it is far more wrong to admit your love to someone of the same sex who loves you back, than to have someone get those messages then post them knowing the harm it will cause. The US is rushing towards being like Muslim countries where such things are punishable by long jail terms or even death. I have seen videos of young teens being hung because they were accused of homosexual acts in Muslim run countries. That is the future the evangelicals want for the US only with Christianity in charge and the laws we had in place to stop them have been worn away and now tRump is simply letting them have everything they want..
