Gay teenager, who was bullied and kicked out of home, leaves note thanking Lady Gaga before he

committed suicide.

A teenager who committed suicide earlier this month left a note thanking Lady Gaga for being 'a fearless, relentless, proud LGBT advocate'.
Eric James Borges, 19, took his own life after suffering years of physical and verbal abuse at school and rejection from his 'extremist' Christian family who kicked him out of home for being gay.

A friend read from the note at one of several memorial services held for the young man in San Joaquin Valley, California.

4. WHY is this happening in the 21st Century?

It sounds like something that should belong to the Dark Ages. We HAVE to help these kids.

6. This is why I never snark on Lady Gaga

Even though I don't care for her music or performing persona. She is an outspoken and tireless advocate of LGBT rights, including bullying of teens.

8. What kind of people are the parents?

We are reading too many heartbreaking stories. There is no he should have had to endure verbal and physical abuse in a sane world. He didn't have a safe place to be and I cannot understand people that do this.

9. The face of another victim of conservative ideologies.

It is sickening that in this nation, the richest in the history of the world, that we cannot provide BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS for all people.

10. Another creative voice silenced by caveman ideas.

I hope his fucking asshole parents are not allowed at the funeral. They kicked him out, so fuck them.

Even now, their asshole pastor and "church" members are consoling them, telling them they did no wrong, only what their evil, hate-filled, judgmental, politically-obsessed, invisible man Jesus wants. Look, up in the sky! Can't you just feel him smiling down on you! Ya fucking turds.

Religion in America has become a sickness, as sure as it has long been in countries that fight continually over what their invisible sky bastard wants. The expendable little people get fired up and kill each other while the "religious leaders" rake in the cash.

I used to think, ok, I don't follow or believe in your religion, but you go right ahead and practice it. Obviously religion can't exist without targets to HATE, and I am god-damned tired of being one.

FUCK YOU, "gentle christian" religionist bastards. FUCK ALL of you. You've shown the whole world what you're really about. You started the war, and picked on what you assumed were the weakest groups, probably due to the fact that you have always been a bully but hid it long enough to your cock sucked by another guy; then you showed your true colors.

I think it's time to OUT the huge numbers of these hateful, hypocritical assholes, sneaking around in the dark, in alleys, peepshows, vile, disgusting restrooms hoping to find some other self-hating queer to use long enough to get their rocks off.
