SURVIVORS: Courtneys Story

Courtney was placed in foster care at 6 months old. Her mother was incarcerated and her father was a pimp who had no use for a baby. She was permanently placed in a good home with a pasotr and his wife at age 7 and all was well until an older cousin began to spend the night. She molested over and over again and over the years during visits to see her biological family, she was the victim of incest. She sys that the abuse was so traumatic that it became part of her identity. She sat in church listening to sermons about sin and wondering if she would go to hell. 

As a teenager, promiscuity, drugs, alcohol and trouble with the law became too much for her foster parents and she was sent back to her biological father at age 15.

Based on data from more than 21,000 U.S. college students, researchers found that greater religious feeling and engagement was tied to increased risk of suicidal thoughts and actions for participants who identified as LGBTQ”.

  Reuters: April, 2018, Anne Harding 

 

 “Lesbians and gays who reported that religion was important to them were 38 percent more likely to have had recent suicidal thoughts. For lesbians only, religion was associated with a 52 percent increased likelihood of suicidal thinking. Questioning (faith) individuals were almost three times as likely to have attempted suicide recently if they reported that religion was very important to them”.
