In America, it is widely taught that hating Gays and Lesbians is perfectly acceptable behavior. Hate and loathing of Homosexuals is even preached directly from the pulpit of many churches in the United States, with horrific results.
30 to 40 percent of the youth living on the streets are teenagers who were thrown out of or left their homes because they are homosexual.
Thirty percent of teen age suicides are among homosexual youth. Proportionately, this figure is at least two to three times higher than for other adolescents.
