The Australian newspaper reports that a rising suicide rate has prompted mental health experts to call for greater focus on prevention and new measures they hope will dramatically reduce the number of deaths. What is needed is the opposite of what is overwhelming our young people today.
Until the media's complicit, intentional and over the top campaign to normalize what is not normal in our society is reigned in, and healthy (physically and mentally) living is promoted in its place, the suicide rate is forecast to only increase and quite dramatically.
Marriage between a man and a woman is good for the man and the woman as well as any children they produce. Homosexual activity between two men is not good for anyone and normalizing this behavior to our nation's youth by changing marriage laws, thus encouraging more of this behavior, can only lead more young people toward drug abuse, sexually transmitted diseases, mental health problems and suicide.
Confusing our youth about gender and pretending that a girl can be a boy if she so chooses just confuses young people and will lead to mental illness, embarrassment, shame, despair, drug abuse and suicide.
"The Australian Bureau of Statistics yesterday confirmed the suicide rate had increased from 10.9 per 100,000 people in 2013 to 12 per 100,000 in 2014 — the highest rate in a decade. Almost eight people a day, 2160 males and 704 females over the year, killed themselves in 2014, with suicide the leading cause of avoidable death in Australia.
Helen Christensen, from the Black Dog Institute and the National Health and Medical Research Council Centre for Research Excellence in Suicide Prevention, said the data showed strategies were not as successful as they needed to be. “If we want to be really serious about saving lives, we need to understand why people become suicidal and identify how we can best tackle these issues before they reach crisis point,” she said."
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
