    Unbelievable

    Very sad news when anyone ends their life. This whole online abuse thing has gotten way out of hand. Some people say that social media is one of the worst things that has happened to society. I tend to agree, the vitriol spewed out about Charlotte Dawson after she suicided is just vile. We as a society have become the lowest of the low.

    You know, I'm not really shocked by anything Fred Nile says. His comments are so beyond offensive on so many levels. Alas, given he does not adhere to logic and reason, what possible argument can you present to him to make him question how repulsive, out of touch, backward and inappropriate his comments are?

    Yes, he appears to be completely oblivious to how offensive his comments are.

    Sadly, at 79, I doubt he has any plans for retirement and will probably remain in Parliament until he eventually loses his seat (Kind-of like Wilson Tuckey)

    Fred Nile is a vile, twisted little man.
    Seriously wish someone would remove the giant preachy stick that's shoved up his a$$, and ram it down his throat.

    Blergh

    Oh my god that is utterly dispicable!! That man should be removed from the media limelight permanently!!


    And re people who keep blaming her depression... I hardly see how one woman's depression can cause other people to spout stuff like:


    'Ugly *****' and


    'Please to hang yourself'

    !!
