    Pastor Rick Warren's son commits suicide

    The Southern California church headed by popular evangelical Pastor Rick Warren says his 27-year-old son has committed suicide.

    Warren's Saddleback Valley Community Church said in a statement that Matthew Warren had struggled with mental illness and deep depression throughout his life.

    "Matthew was an incredibly kind, gentle and compassionate young man whose sweet spirit was encouragement and comfort to many," the statement said.

    "Unfortunately, he also suffered from mental illness resulting in deep depression and suicidal thoughts. Despite the best health care available, this was an illness that was never fully controlled and the emotional pain resulted in his decision to take his life."

    Can someone please explain to me why this family's personal tragedy is anybody else's business, much less news?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    He's a national figure, he did an interview on TV with John McCain and Barack Obama when they were running for president in 2008.

    That doesn't sound like a national figure to me.

    Sad news. I cannot imagine to know that sort of heartbreak. I pray I won't.

    Given the individuals involved, I'm sure the parents will go thru all the theatrics and proclamations of grief, but 3 weeks from now you'll probably be hardpressed to notice they'd "been through" anything.........................
