MSNBC Interview on
Video of Mitchell Gold’s TV interview on October 4th , about the relationship of Bullying and Teen Suicide: See http://www.faithinamerica.org/stopping-teen-suicides.
He said “…I want to talk about bullying that kids get from their parents and bullying they
get from their religious institutions.”
And here is a personal story in response to that TV interview:“I ‘knew’ I was gay by the time I was 10 years old; and the anti-gay messages I heard at church (which, by appearances, were supported by my family and my
culture) caused me a great deal of shame, fear, and (by way of my own behavioral choices) alienation. As an out adult I now consider those same messages to have been a form of child abuse, and I commend you and your organization for shedding light on this in a way I’ve not seen before. Thank you! – Chris”
