A priest laid it right between the eyes at a funeral, to the mourners as well as to the parents; the 18 year old youth, a Straight A student, who committed suicide was not going to go to heaven. I am uncertain whether the priest had any control over the matter, but apparently, it does not matter how the person lived their life or what drove them to the point of desperation.

Most of the leaders in my particular religion, thankfully, believe that the right question to ask is not whether the person is going to heaven or down below, but what kind of life they lived, and who they've helped, in the living world. But to me, this is no way to comfort mourners. It is a public shaming, and why?

If you believe in heaven that is between you and GOD.. Another of those Rules made by men, supposedly in the name of GOD. It appears that GOD may have failed your child

You can never NOT be a cannibal now. Or a vegan.

Unless some prayer is religiously required,that is just disrespectful.
