As far as I'm concerned, the only people going to HELL in this situation are people who feverishly stand in judgment of other people's actions, hide behind their ****ing bibles and use religion to spread their hatred, while the people who are truly SUFFERING, his family and friends, have to read bull**** like that from some anonymous baby f**ker on the internets. Read your TMZ, thumper.

first inclination - to make the obvious joke. but, i'm just sorry. sorry for anyone who feels the weight of the world on their shoulders - so much so that they feel that they have only one choice. i spent one day in that seat, and thankfully - i was able to get help before tragedy took over. its amazing how intense pain can feel when you just don't know what to do with it. best wishes to the fans and families that this man has touched. i'm sorry for your loss...and for his.
