Let me start by saying that I am a devout Catholic. I was baptized in New York as a baby and confirmed as an adult in the Catholic Dioceses of Harrisburg Pennsylvania. In my religion it is ok to commit suicide. Let me repeat,"In the Catholic faith it is now allowed that those who commit suicide can have a Catholic funeral." My question to all non-Catholics is why? Why is committing suicide a bad thing? When does a person not want to commit suicide because of the influence of others? And doesn't every spirit have the right to judge based on their own valuations wether or not they want to suffer life among other people? Also wether or not the spirit wants to suffer creations of itself and resistance to God and to the SuperEgo as described by Frued in his model of psychoanalysis? Are these not pertinent questions? Are you not valid enough to consider these and decide to end your life?
