"It was a decision based merely on circumstances at the time, when every single little movement produced pain, when everything either happened to me or was imposed upon me in lieu of any meaningful communication. Once all your dignity is stripped…"

"Could it be that since the 'people of the book' look up to to some abstract/absolute/demanding 'father figure', they constantly hope to tarry favor via some degree of conformity. In the absence of such a belief/behavior we…"

"I would go with Sartre's explanation that many people want God to exist because if God doesn't exist then they are 100% responsible for creating themselves through their choices, whereas if God exists it's much easier: just do as he…"

"On the one hand, I would certainly think that sexual orientation would have no bearing on a propensity for gullibility, still, one would have to question why even the gullible would embrace a religion that denounces their lifestyle as an…"

"Same reason there is religious straight people... people are gullible enough to believe it."

Ward Cressin replied to JD Stockman's discussion 'Suicide'
""Hell isn't a place, it's a state of relationship: not being in relationship with God." Really? So all non-Christians and even some Christians are already in Hell right here on Earth. That is what you said - just logically…"

"Does that mean if you are confident that it doesn't exist then you're fine? You only sin if you doubt?     :D"

Ward Cressin replied to JD Stockman's discussion 'Suicide'
"The premise underlying many religions (going to heaven/Valhalla/etc. after death) is very likely a root cause of people getting the equation wrong - to use a concept from the linked article. Instead of death being equal to zero, an afterlife changes…"

"You've also mentioned your deafness, Judith, so I know that life hasn't been easy for you, but I know that you are married now, and presumably happy, and you, yourself, admitted: "The decision to try was a quick one" - don't…"

Unseen replied to JD Stockman's discussion 'Suicide'
"I agree it has to do with gaining approval, but perhaps a bit more of a metaphorical "parent" (society at large, being a churchgoer in good standing being evidence of such). I think that may be what you meant anyway."

Unseen replied to JD Stockman's discussion 'Suicide'
"I see the role of religion in suicide as a mixed bag. For every person driven to suicide in some sense by religion, there may be someone who is kept from suicide by it. For negative reasons, of course: the "straight to Hell" aspect for…"

"I am not, nor have ever been religious in any form. I am gay but have never experienced any bullying because of it, my family are entirely accepting of the whole spectrum of sexuality. I have once tried to kill myself though. The decision to try was…"
