Tragic loss of life

Apparently Rev. Warren thought his son was "gentle, kind, quick to show comfort to others" and I can only wonder if this son was gay!!!!!! The preacher was apparently comfortable in naming his son as someone with mental illness....but I am wondering whether the "mental illness" was the pressure to "be heterosexual." The home and the church in which this young man grew up was fiercely anti-gay...so...if he was gay and trying to hide that, pretend he was not, he would be under tremendous MENTAL
PRESSURE.....one could "go crazy" trying to be other than who one is!!!
I am in sorrow for the young man.....but not for his parents or the hummongus church. Being SO against a minority of God's beloved sons and daughters is sinful. Rick Warren calls himself Christian but doesn't seem to understand Jesus.
