Everyone is wondering if he was gay, of course.

It would be nice if his terrible death had some impact on his SOB father, but that might be doubtful.

Why was a supposedly 'mentally ill' person allowed to keep a loaded gun in his closet?
.
Who owned the gun; and for how long?
.
Was it a suicide or a homicide?

He wasnt mentally ill. He was depressed which can be considered a "mental illness" but being depressed does not stop one from owning a firearm.

I do not believe the son was the owner of the firearm though.

He was gay and had to struggle with that and knowing that if he came out his family with disown him. Poor kid as he was very smart.

If the father's homophobia did play some part in the son's suicide then I think the only solution for Rick Warren, pretend pastor and actual multi millionaire, to escape a lifetime of guilt would be seppuku.

Mazel tov, you fraud.

Apparently not smart enough to know his father is full of evil gelical sht and to laugh in the old bigot's face.

I wasn't wondering if he was gay. You seem to have a one-track mind. This is a terrible tragedy, and I pray for Mattheew and his family at this terrible time.

Some of you are truly beyond belief! I can't get my mind around how the people making some of these comments can not look in the mirror and see their own bigotry, narrow mindedness and evil hearts! And you call Pastor Warren evil???? I wish I could pity you, but at this moment, all I can feel is shame and disgust for you!

Wow. I mean, why does it really matter whether he engaged in sodomy with another man or not? Other than it may solidify his mental illness. So insatiably a narcissist is you.
God you're an idiot.

A politically active justice system instead of a constitutionally active foundation.
The breakdown of Christain fundamentals, and yet those breaking down morality blame Christianity.
You have earned your plight.

Jesus claimed wars of brothers against brothers.
The end of days are near.
Any hour of any day.

This is no longer, our govt. By the people for the people.

Religion could vanish from the earth tomorrow and we would need to maintain common sense for you would be left with the choice of what is right and what is wrong. I personally would rather see lawyers and polititians disappear. What a grand start that would be going forward for it is they that have distorted the truth in so many ways.
They are no longer of sound governing minds and their decisions are based mostly on finance and not common sense. Perverse, we are doomed.
You'll see, soon.

Christian fundamentals are breaking down because the 2013 year old social experimentation is breaking down. Guess humans can't be herded in flocks afterall.
