One Town's War On Gay Teens

Rolling Stone has an expose on a town where nine teens have committed suicide since November of 2009.

"Like many 13-year-olds, Brittany knew seventh grade was a living hell. But what she didn't know was that she was caught in the crossfire of a culture war being waged by local evangelicals inspired by their high-profile congressional representative Michele Bachmann..."

This is infuriating to read, but it is important to understand what is happening here and in many parts of the country.

This is sad beyond words.

But they will not win, those people; they will not win. And they know it. Their frenzy is a proof of this.

My concern is who gets caught in the crossfire in the meantime.

I know what you mean... It just rips the heart out, knowing how much these young ones suffer :-(
