Tempest Kayne Smith died on February 20, 2001. She died by her own hand as a direct result of the relentless bullying she endured in school. More than any issue, she was bullied about her religious faith - the one she chose for herself.
If someone shoots another person, I am not going to criticize the person who was shot. How much bullying is a 12-yearold girl supposed to take, especially if, as some surmise, the people who could take action wouldn't, even if the knew or even saw it happening. I surmise that it might because it happened to me at that age!
But, let's examine the issue. Interesting, to look at some facts. If, as most say, The Divine is infinite, there are some conclusions to be drawn. And they are even confirmed in the Christians' own Gospels!
