      “”
      Judaism’s larger Reformed and Conservative movements are considerably more accepting. Both have moved toward embracing LGBT clergy and same-sex marriage.””
      ______________________

      They haven’t “Moved Toward” embracing LGBT clergy and Marriage, they have fully embraced it. Both conservative and reform movements ordain gay rabbis and perform gay marriges.

      As for the suicide statistics, these strict religions, no matter the deniomination are truly a danger to these kids.

      It is sad to see this happen all over the world where religion is strong. People need to be taught from a young age that they are free to choose their own path through life and should you wish to become religious you should not be forced until you are at least 16.

      While this dogma still poisons the majority psyche it is sadly a statistic that will rise as the younger generations grow ever more socially conscious and intelligent.

      The Haredi Jews in Israel are nuts. They stoned a dog because their “court” found it guilty of demonic possession and they spit on schoolgirls and female IDF soldiers if they dare sit or stand next to men in public.

      Regardless of the religion, be it Judaism (my religion), Christianity or Islam, fundamentalist literalism and closed-mindedness is a shameful situation that causes so many young men and women to suffer in this regard.

      The film, “Trembling Before G-d,” is, in my opinion, an excellent documentary about orthodox GLBT people. It can be viewed free of charge online.
