Any religion is 'true' if it helps you become closer to the sovereign of the universe.
Likewise, if a religion excludes you from the sovereign, it's not good for you.

Ok. So if there is no sovereign of the universe, no religion is good for you, as it takes you farther away from reality. Conversely, atheism is true and beneficial, as it most closely aligns one to the reality of the universe.

If that is true, why do elderly people in Catholic countries commit suicide more often than those in Protestant and secular countries?

If you live in a "Catholic country" does that mean you're a practicing Catholic? I live in a blue state, but I sure as hell am not a practicing Democrat. Or even a Democrat.

Since we do not know WHAT the reality of the universe IS, your statement is nonsense.

You mean that one with that cannibalistic habit of eating flesh and drinking blood? Nice religion.
