    I was praying this was a hoax of some sort. But my pastor confirmed it for me. Had just spoken to Ergun and his youngest son this past Sunday.:tear: Lord have mercy JESUS!!!

    Oh heartbreaking!! So often, there is mental illness involved with the person committing suicide and it's been a long road with them and the family. I can't imagine how terrible this is for them. I will be praying for them. :(

    WOW! This is just soooo wrong. I won't say that the attacks on his father led to his suicide. But when you look at this guy's blog and the way he goes after Ergun's son, it makes me wonder if perhaps he was just tired of all of it? And when folks start coming after him for something he had nothing to do with? when do we say enough is enough?

    Help us Jesus!!!

    We do not need to be bashing the Caners at this time. For goodness sakes some people just do not know how to give it a rest.

    Why don't you attempt to love your neighbor as yourself? Your post is ridiculous and uncalled for.

    I can only imagine the pain. May the family experience the God of all comfort.

    Did I miss something? I think Jerome was just asking the question. Nobody in this thread has been bashing the Caners. It's been just the opposite.

    He was just speaking fondly of his kids on Sunday. He spoke about he had not planned to have any kids because he wanted to get his Ph. D and be an intellectual. And that he was so happy that God didn't listen to him because he would have missed out on the joy he got when he could go to different churches and countries to preach and his boys get to tag along.

    The truly disturbing thing is that the idiot blogger hasn't as yet had the decency to pull down his post.

    I think you misunderstand Jerome. I believe he's indicating the blogger's posts against Caner and specifically Caner's son are at least partially to blame for this unfortunate incident.

    I doubt I've misunderstood. Have you read the link and how it attempts to shame Caner? It's not necessary at this time to shame him or his family.

    How very sad. May the Lord display grace, mercy, and divine comfort to the Caner family.

    Tell me how he could not know, given his obsession with the Caners and the fact he obviously follows the Twitter accounts of both father and son closely so he can post the next alleged "dirt" on one of them. :rolleyes:

    Why does this tragedy have to be turned into the next Baptistboard gossip session.

    You're assuming, accusing as if you have all knowledge, and then to top that off you add ad hominem in your prior post. Grow up.

    Uh ... you're mentioned where in that post?

    Never mind. Rev's right. This is ridiculous.

    This kind of thread, where it is inevitably heading, needs to be closed and deleted.
