ha! chick filay.. cancer yay!
One of the sneakest and most despicable "reasons" the Catholic Church and other fascistic religions have against suicide is to stop people from escaping their abillity to punish and inflict pain. In one of last years American atheist magazine pieces, Bolton described how religion is totally obsessed and preoccupied with punishing people. Its punish, punish and punish some more. Punishment seems to be major motivation for religion's existence. They are always punishing people. Looked upon from this persective, suicide is our escape from their punishments and they don't like that at all! They want to do their damnest to block all suicides and make sure we feel their tortures. But they never admit that this is their real reason. It has nothing to do with the "sanctity of life" and has everything to do with preserving their "right" to punish and inflict pain to force people to serve them and protect and defend them. It's all part of their having power over us.
Sorry about your losses but that religion is a truly immoral institution.
