Because the Bible tells me so
An 18-year-old gay man from Texas allegedly slain by a high-school classmate who believed his friend was making advances toward him; a 31-year-old transgender woman from Pennsylvania found dead with a pillowcase around her head; and a 24-year-old lesbian from Florida purportedly killed by her girlfriend’s father, who disapproved of the relationship. Murders, maybe, but--
FRC leader Perkins says, there is another factor that leads kids to kill themselves.
"These young people who identify as gay or lesbian, we know from the social science that they have a higher propensity to depression or suicide because of that internal conflict."
Homosexuality is "abnormal," he says, and kids know it, which leads them to despair. That's why he wants to confront gay activism in public schools. For example, his group supports the Day of Truth, when Christian high schoolers make their case that homosexuality is a sin.
"The Islamists and the homosexuals work out of the same playbook. They knew that if what they do and what they subscribe to is scrutinized, people will turn away from it, so what they want to do is they want to marginalize and eventually silence anyone who challenges their ideology and their agenda."
So FRC is not a hate group because they are church-oriented and believe in the words of Christ. Somehow the translation of the Bible I read left all this crap off the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes.

I wonder if judgment of a chosen lifestyle (after all, they choose to do that) adds to the pressure, social uncertainty and the depression. I mean who would feel pressure when fellow homosexuals are KILLED as they try to live their lives?
