And so we lose another

The news is here.

One more teen dead by suicide after more bullying than his young shoulders could bear. Most of us know all too well what this is like. Some of us would be with him now, but for other slight circumstances. More will join him as long as we have elected officials, clerics, teachers, parents and all the others who refuse to open their eyes to a realty outside the narrow confines of Biblical nonsense and hatred.

A review of Romney's tax returns only makes this clearer. Hate group donations galore. Thirty seconds of Santorum, and we have a clear picture of the thinly veiled hatred that they all espouse. Some even have gay family, yet they refuse to act with the very compassion dictated by those red letters in that book they all claim to cherish.

Those who use this book for moral guidance would do well to think more on the instruction to "Feed my sheep," and a lot less on the strictures of a 5,000 year-old health code that is no longer in enforced.

Pardon me, please, while I go rant further in private.
