These results apply to lgbt people who are particularly unhappy, a situation which exists for a percentage of heterosexuals, too. The results are not based on all lgbt people.

It is not surprising that their seeking bona fide health intervention did not improve outcomes. It's a tricky problem.

As for the seeking out religious help for the problem(s), I'd like to see that data broken down state by state. I bet going to an lgbt positive house of worship in MA would not be harmful. Maybe even better than going to a mental health professional and getting pumped full of pharma for profit.

It's the hypocritical, mullah, supposedly literalist outlets, predominantly in the buybull belt, which would cause a worsening of the issues for lgbt people, I'll wager.

They use religious superstition as a pea-brained excuse to put our citizenship rights on hold every day; so we need to put religion on hold until they learn to mind their own business

The study said, "If respondents sought help from spiritual guides, they were more likely to commit suicide than those who sought no treatment at all."

How does this compare with the non-LGB population? Is it possible that mental health professionals are much better equipped that the clergy in dealing with such issues?

It's the truth. You demand freedom and tolerance from all, especially from those who disagree with you, but as all liberals are hypocrites, you will not tolerate any view different from your own.
As a Libertarian for nearly 30 years, this is why my hatred of Democrats and liberals is unbounded.

Wow! That was twisting the knife in the back of the political issues
dealing with the 'gay agenda'.

Freud stated that the homosexual mind is "intractable".

Talibangelicals don't "believe in" Freud or in psychoanalysis.

Freud said that the suppression of all pervasive bisexuality is the cause of all neurosis.

However, as with the buybull or with Marx or with Shakespeare, you can support most anything via selective quotes.

Christardate.

Since you are out instead of closeted, therefore not suppressed, how do you explain your neurosis?

1. I'm not bisexual. Git ur hom skool teechur to try and 'splain it to you how that fact makes you look even stupider than usual, closet case.

2. Heterosexuality is not something that needs to be repressed to suit society's mullah bigots, and therefore that suppression does not happen. No suppression, none of these stresses we're talking about. No imposed stress in identifying as str8.

I see what you are saying: the fact that heterosexuals are unsuppressed is the cause of your paranoid feelings of suppression, which is manifested in your heterophobia.

No, you couldn't figure it out, even though I patiently explained it at a closet case's grade level.

Freud said that suppression of bisexuality causes neurosis.

I am not bisexual.

Therefore, by your stupid misunderstanding, I am still suppressed in that sense. Because I am not bisexual. I have am not of the "heterosexual deathstyle choice."

That was the first, simpler point, you christardate. Forget the second point. It's too subtle - at an eighth grade level.

Yes, I understand, but you still have not explained your neurosis.

Honey. The real Gay Christian Churches see through you at a mere glance and the picture on the other side glares in cowardice from being seen. They bolt the doors from the inside if they see you coming. He who falls on the ice in the middle of the desert like he'd never seen the stuff before. Warrents always catch up, no matter where you hide. Your hate starts from the inside and expands accordingly. Amazing that cats would put up with you. The other animals hate the devil with a passion.
