Letter: Gays at bay

Sir: Hundreds of UK teenagers suffer and attempt suicide annually because Section 28 prohibits their teachers from telling them that there's nothing wrong in being gay.

Rupert Thorne from Northern Ireland (letter, 8 November) erroneously considers that the section's removal would result in the "active promotion of homosexuality in schools". I suggest that he contemplates the death and devastation caused by the active promotion of Christianity within his own province before condemning even more people to an early grave.
