Subject: Homosexual Soulforce Org Blames Christian Teaching For Deaths Of Gays Because Gay Man "Contemplated" Suicide At Southern Baptist Convention

This headline goes beyond sarcasm to falsehood. The article does NOT state that the man contemplated suicide while at the Southern Baptist Convention. I am sure you were intentional in your wording, using a dangling modifier on purpuse, but I expect better of even you, John, in promoting your causes.

Editor's note: Yup, you caught me! The headline is accurate if you read the story.  "At SBC convention modifies the main verb "blames."

The notion of blaming historic Christian morality for the suicidal thoughts of immoral people is absurd and dishonest. You don't see Christians blaming immoral practitioners of sin for the suicides of orthodox Christians.  Next thing you know Christians will be blamed for the burning of first century Rome and thus, justifying their persecution and execution.

Did you write Soulforce about their dishonesty?
