Death In The Crystal Cathedral

The latest victim of psychiatry and psychiatric drugs is Johnny Carl, the choir director at Orange County, California's famous Crystal Cathedral. He locked himself in the Crystal Cathedral and killed himself when police tried to go in after him.

"The longtime conductor of the Crystal Cathedral Orchestra had been hospitalized for depression weeks before he shot himself to death at the soaring glass-and-steel church, his wife said," according to FoxNews.com

The article went on to say, "His wife, Linda Carl, said he had stopped taking a drug earlier this year that helped him control manic depression because of concerns it could harm his kidneys."

Let's add to that that it can harm your sanity and make you homicidal or suicidal.

This is yet another example on the front page of the news of someone who became wildly insane after seeking treatment from psychiatrists for mental illness. These guys don't help people. They make them crazy. Their drugs make people crazy too. If we can pick a psychiatry or psych drug victim who kills himself or others off the front page of the papers on a daily basis, that has to be the tip of the iceberg. If this guy wasn't the choir director of the Crystal Cathedral, but instead worked as a check-out clerk at the 7-11 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, would it have made the front page? How many are really dying?

It's time to identify the ogres that made these drugs legal and arraign them on a few thousand cases of manslaughter. Even the FDA, who is famous for backing drug companies, not the public safety, made them put a warning in a black box on all anti-depressants now warning that the drug could cause suicide. So why didn't they make the drug illegal? Is the risk of suicide negligible for an antidepressant drug? Ask Johnny Carl's wife.

Hi Don,
I was just passing looking for Church links on the blogger site and found your Death In The Crystal Cathedral blog. Your blog was not quite what I was looking for, but I enjoyed my visit all the same.
