The secularization of American society has contributed to the rise in suicides, Jason and David Benham argue.
The conservative Christian brothers, who were famously dropped from an HGTV home-flipping show after LGBT activists pressured the network over the twins’ beliefs on marriage and sexuality, penned a recent column published by World Net Daily on the rise of suicide in America.
The column came in response to the suicides of celebrities Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, as well as a recent Centers for Disease Control report noting a 30 percent increase in suicides in the United States since 1999.
The brothers stated that secularization “hasn’t fixed our problem” with suicide; rather “secularization has only made this epidemic worse.”
“… when you remove the phrase, ‘you were created for a purpose‘ from the cultural conversation, suicide becomes an easier option,” wrote the Benham brothers.
“But the truth is, we were all created for a purpose. Knowing this deep in our hearts will help thwart any desire to end our lives. Because God loves us. He made us. And we have purpose.”
