    Faith has triggered numerous suicides, yet they're never talked about. I doubt Robin Williams suicide was triggered by a Bible thumper. But Bible thumpers HAVE triggered suicides, and broadway is an example of how warped interpretations of the Bible has caused many a dead member of said thumper's friend-family-colleague circle.

    This wasn't the thread to express your dislike for bible thumpers, Skep.

    Severe Depression is a killer !

    Apparently he was down over having to 'downsize' his life due to financial commitments to ex's...and so forth..it was part of it , I guess...his latest blitz in doing movies one after the other...of which we will all see by the end of the year according to 'the Hollywood buzz'..

    Probably working too hard..being older now..and not coping well with the stress of working all the time...has something to do with it I am sure..

    Unless we start talking about suicides triggered by thumpers when we have a celeb suicide, we're NEVER going to address it. When a non-celeb dies via thumpers, the broadways of the world just put up a fence (Anyone look at the ugly fence on the Vista bridge lately?). We need to address why 2 Oregonians kill themselves every day and why broadway gets off the hook for his actions in the name of God.

    Broadway sez; "full of life we were"

    It's too bad the ones you drove to death couldn't make it.

    I have to agree with everyone else here Skep, sorry, but this is not relevant. Not the place to do it.

    Exactly. No one talks about it, so how would you know? Heck, even broadway doesn't even understand how he triggers people into a downward spiral. If he knew, he wouldn't have had to fire up so many hotdogs.

    Alcohol = suicide trigger
    Drug abuse = suicide trigger
    Bible thumper = suicide trigger
