Ok, so usually at Twitchy we do not write in the first person UNLESS the article calls for it and folks, this is one of those articles that REALLY calls for it.
If you follow me on Twitter (@PolitiBunny) you know I tend to have engagements and debates with all sorts of folks that can go on, and on, and on, and on, and on …
And this was one of those times.
It all started with this crappy tweet from David Leavitt about Anthony Bourdain.
If you’re religious, then you believe there’s a special place in hell or purgatory for people like Anthony Bourdain who take their own lives.

You guys remember David right? He’s the jack-hole who tweeted horrible things after the suicide bombing at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester. Yeah, as you can see, he’s super special.
So super special in fact he even got the attention of The Church of Satan.
Full transparency, I totally agreed with them on this take EXCEPT for the whole ‘imaginary friends’ dig at people of faith. Which ultimately got me in trouble with this Church that is actually a group of atheists who doesn’t believe in Satan but named their Church after him because THAT WILL SHOW THOSE CHRISTIANS.
And my and my big mouth, I kinda sorta called this out and WHOA NELLY spent over 24 hours listening to people Satansplaining about Satan this and atheist that and yeah, that was a hoot.
Hey, if you can’t learn something new every day on Twitter you’re not trying.
But back to David.
Don't forget y'all: This is just who David is. Absolute trash. pic.twitter.com/ORSZIJ3m7F

You are trash.

Sensing a theme here, David.
So by religious you are meaning…catholic?

I'm Catholic, and I believe in a loving God. Anyone who is desperate enough to commit suicide deserves compassion, not judgment …

Im not about to debate religious teaching on suicide. But I hope you know your comment was weak, inhumane, and devoid of any humanity.
God is love. There is only fear and dark in your words

It seems like you are aiming for: “checkmate, religious people” but it sorta screams “I’m an insensitive tool.”

Apparently if you’re not religious you don’t know much about what religions teach.

David that is simply not true. Are you aware of how callous your remarks are? I've had congregants & friends whose child took his or her own life. As a rabbi, I would NEVER communicate this or frankly, even think it. Where is your heart?

When you’ve got people of all faiths (including The Church of Satan which isn’t really a faith but sorta is even if they say it’s not) you KNOW you’ve really stepped in it, David.
Maybe it’s just time to delete your account.
