This is very sad. Bill Zeller, a Princeton Ph.D., committed suicide recently and left a 4,000-word suicide note, which is included in the link. Sexual abuse at a very young age was the cause, but if you read to the end, he has some parting thoughts for his fundamentalist christian family.

 

I have this fantasy that his family will read it and issue a press release disavowing their fucked up thinking. I'm sure what will really happen is they'll double down their belief that their son was tempted by satan and was beyond the reach of jeee-sus.HuffPo: Bill Zeller Suicide

Bill and I have a mutual friend who posted this to my website last week.  It was very sad indeed and certainly his fundie family shares some of the blame.
