Bourdain: Casualty of Leftist Mindset
American Thinker, by Lloyd Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 6/11/2018 6:38:07 AM

My fashionista wife Mary told me the famous purse designer Kate Spade shockingly committed suicide. Upon hearing about the tragic suicide of Anthony Bourdain, this scripture came to mind. “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36) Bourdain was famous, and worth $16 million. Folks, we live is such an evil time that merely suggesting that people are better off with God in their lives is venomously attacked and branded fanatical religious hate speech. But I am going to go there anyway. Mr. Bourdain, and I suspect Ms. Spade,

Im going to disagree. He was suffering some type of depression, masked by success and surrounded by sycophants who would hand him the rope if he asked. All along the sycophants would say how great he was, how awesome, how talented and how happy. Meanwhile, inside, he was in a swamp.

Good article. I see this void in today´s children who are brought up without God in their lives. The void is filled with drugs and video games both of which have been proven to be addictive and downers. Sad.

I’m going to agree. I have seen it myself, in everyday people.

Not mentioned in the article is leftist anger. I can’t imagine going through life being that angry every minute of every day. Even when they get what they think they want, they are still miserable.

I know that Spade held a fundraiser for Illary but I don’t know if she was consumed with TDS. Bourdain certainly was - not long before he offed himself he expressed the desire to poison President Trump.

Thank you, Mr. Marcus for your words of wisdom. Try as we might, we cannot erase the God of the Universe. Man is so filled with hubris and pride to believe that he is the center of everything. That thinking only leads to misery and anger which is the state of mind that the left wallows in on a daily basis.

Personally, I find freedom and meaning in a life lived for Jesus Christ. Although I fall short on a daily basis, I am confident in the forgiveness and acceptance by God. It must be depressing to believe that this old world is all that there is. Thank God for the heritage of faith my parents instilled in me. It has made life worth living even in the darkest of times. The hope that Jesus Christ brings is life changing. Sadly, too many are too sophisticated to even consider it.

Marcus could be on to something here, but I have sadly known several people who took their own lives and none were close to wealthy or lefty types. A couple of them were dear Christian servants who suffered for years and years with depression. Sometimes suicide is a selfish response to temporary setbacks. Other times it is an attempt to escape from unspeakable, unrelenting pain.

The Bible is an amazing ancient text with prophecies fulfilled that would be the envy of astrologists and fortune-tellers. From 2 Timothy 3:

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God;...

Selfish is someone who hogs all the candy because he wants it all for himself and doesn´t want you to have any. It rankles whenever I hear folks claim that suicide is selfish.

Like #6 (and probably others here), I´m too familiar with this topic. The person who is so desperate that he ends his own life is certainly focused on his self to the exclusion of all else . . . and that deserves our compassion and prayer for his soul. But is he selfISH just because we´re angry with him for doing this? Or because we think we´re immune from it ourselves because we might be Christian or mentally stronger or whatever?

When a soul is under the influence of mind-numbing pain, is it even possible for him to want all the candy or care whether you have some of it?

Mr. Marcus speaks well, but I believe his opinion here is simplistic, lacks understanding of the psychiatric disorder leading to suicide as the only relief of unbearable psychic pain. I have known many suffering from severe endogenous depression. They don’t care who has candy, political “truth” or religious enlightenment. They lack the mental and emotional resources to embrace hope, even that offered by God.Their ability to find pleasure, or interest or faith in anything, their ability to give or receive love, is draped in an unbearably heavy black cloak, Even getting dressed in the morning, eating breakfast, looking out the window, can be unmanageable. Taking the next breath may be a hard task. So it’s unrealistic, maybe glib, to blame politics or a lack of the proper religious convictions for what may be a devastating chronic disease, terribly resistant to treatment, and too often fatal.

Bourdain was an addict/alcoholic. The disease is a mental obsession, physical cravings and a spiritual malady. God had no importance in his life. He was running on self will and not Gods will. His disease was progressive and fatal. He had resentments and anger ruling his life. He chose the permanent solution to a temporary problem. When the toxicology report comes out the real story will be told.

A question for both sides of the above debate.

Is it being centered on self and lack of faith in The Lord that creates the unbearable pain or does the unbearable pain create the self-centeredness and lack of faith?

I lean to the lack of faith being the cause but am open to arguments.

#8,#9- “Nearly 500 years ago, Martin Luther, who many historians believe may have suffered from clinical depression himself ... once commented in a letter that suicide can be like ‘a man who is overtaken by a robber in the woods,’ when a person suffering from depression reaches a point of despair at which they take their own life. In the case where a suicide is committed out of despair rather than defiance, Luther saw the person as a victim in need of mercy rather than an unrepentant sinner deserving condemnation.”

A person is saved by grace alone, through faith alone, because of Jesus alone is the central teaching of the Christian faith—not by man’s own effort or merit. A suicide victim who is a Christian may not be excluded from salvation because God’s forgiveness in Jesus “...is a constant state in which the Christian is kept by the Holy Spirit.” An individual’s spiritual condition upon death is known only to God.

“When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:17-18)

#11- Perhaps the answer to the question can be summed up in one word, Satan. Satan and his angels were thrown down to the earth in great wrath (Revelation 12:7-23) and Scripture makes clear there are good and evil forces in the world.

Martin Luther once said, “I don´t have the opinion that suicides are certainly to be damned. My reason is that they do not wish to kill themselves but are OVERCOME BY THE POWER OF THE DEVIL." He goes on to express concern that this statement not be misunderstood or misused in a way that would downplay the danger and seriousness of this sin in the minds of people.

Instead of a debate, it feels more like just looking at a thing in a slightly different way, that´s all. But I tend to lean your way, #11, with regard to which comes first (self-centeredness and lack of faith).

That said, however, I can totally see someone - even a strong Christian - abandoning his faith and becoming obsessed with his wound after drowning in the despair of his pain, as #12 alludes. A beloved former Ldotter who succumbed to this very circumstance comes to mind.

Whatever the case, depression is a hard path, even for a devout Christian.

Thanks to all for the thoughtful comments here. No doubt some of us have a particular loved one in mind.

It is important to understand that depression robs the person of rational thinking. The first thing to know about true depression is that the afflicted cannot possibly fathom that things will get better. It is simply that dark.

For those of us who have gotten close to this point, it´s a reality. For those of us who have watched others descend to this point, it´s a terrifying grief.

The mind, like the body, can become diseased. This is not a punishment for something we´ve done, for we have all sinned. I have known humble, loyal Christian servants who have suffered under and succumbed to the ravages of the illness we call depression. It is entirely different than sadness, disappointment, jealousy, selfishness, etc. Think of a time when your car didn´t start. No matter how often you turned the key, the engine didn´t respond. Trying to tell a deeply depressed person to look on the bright side or that things will get better simply does. not. work. Turning the key won´t help.

Some day we may understand better. Until then, it is pure sadness and grief when an otherwise vital person is beyond help. May God have mercy on us all.

People who commit suicide, or want to, or have tried, don´t think rationally. They feel there is no hope and cannot see the light or think tomorrow is another day. They die alone.
It´s that final straw that pushed them over the edge.

On the other hand, how many pharmaceutical companies will be held accountable for side effects?

The FBI is many things to many people, but seen from the inside where I spent my career as an FBI agent, most of all it is a bureaucracy. The evident abuses of the vast investigatory powers of the Bureau to surveil the campaign of Donald Trump has left a paper and electronic trail as it jumped through the many procedural hoops required for Spygate to unfold. Based on a clue from the Strzok-Page texts and my understanding of the rules the FBI has to play by, it is possible to piece together a picture of how and why surveillance

By any reasonable account, the historic meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-un, resulting in an agreement pledging to work toward a stable and enduring peace (over six decades after the Korean armistice was signed at Panmunjom) was an incredible achievement. In fact, had Obama or Clinton achieved as much, we would expect a ticker-tape parade down Fifth Avenue. North Korea has agreed to completely denuclearize and has begun the process, according to reports of satellite imagery, and has agreed to return the remains of U.S. military who perished in North Korea.

The left has created a macabre myth that runs counter to the whole experience of mankind. The left has persuaded the gullible masses of America, including, sadly, most conservatives, that "discrimination" by individuals and businesses is wrong and that it violates the Constitution. Precisely the opposite is true. All serious cognition and all honest moral judgments involve discrimination. When individuals and businesses are not free to discriminate, then the power to determine what is true and false and good and bad becomes the sole property of the state – or that even more odious creature, that lobotomized

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president.
