Pastor Rick Warren's Son Commits Suicide

From today's New York Times:
The 27-year-old son of the Rev. Rick Warren, one of America’s most influential religious leaders, committed suicide, Mr. Warren said in an e-mail released on Saturday to staff members and congregants at his 20,000-member Saddleback Valley Community Church. Rick Warren said in the e-mail that his youngest son, Matthew, had “struggled from birth with mental illness, dark holes of depression, and even suicidal thoughts.” After a happy evening with his parents, the e-mail said, “in a momentary wave of despair at his home, he took his life.”
As they typically do, wingnut sites like Michelle Malkin's Twitchy have harvested a bunch of tweets from random unknown people which they claim characterizes "the ghoulish left."
