I've been crying all weekend, hearing that one of my sons friends comitted suicide. He was 22years old.
His parents kicked him out of the house while he was in high school. Their religion was extreme, and the boy never fully conformed. But IMHO, he had much potential and was a typical good teen.
My son told me yesterday that mom and stepdad flew across the country to the boys home, collected his personal
objects (of any value) and.....left their sons remains unclaimed with the state.
I cannot fathom ANY reason to leave that child behind and alone!!
My son and many mutual friends hope to start a fundraiser and wait out the timeframe for 'family' to claim his remains to bring him home and celabrate his life together with people that did love him and will miss him.
Would religious people who have strong beliefs in suicide NOT bring their son home and claim him?
:( I personally can't think of any reason to do this!

I thought that only Catholics thought that suicide was unforgivable...
The Catholic Church does not teach the suicide is unforgivable. Paragraph 2283 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church reads, "We should not despair of the eternal salvation of persons who have taken their own lives. By ways known to him alone, God can provide the opportunity for salutary repentance. The Church prays for persons who have taken their own lives."
