The Bible doesn’t say a word about Mormon youth suicide rates. Your assertion that it does is pure nonsense.

You can look in your ancient religious texts all you like for contemporary suicide rates. I’ll look at peer-reviewed data.

The LDS Church treats LGBTQ people horribly. I know that both first and second hand. I know for a pure and certain fact. I’m not guessing, and I don’t have to look in ancient texts to know it.

I have eyes, and ears, and a heart, and a conscience. I am a loving, decent, humane person.

I know exactly and personally how evilly your Church treats people like me.

If you’re OK with that? That says something about you. It’s says something terrible about you as a human being.
