The priest was an ass. I've known priests like that creep. They used to rule parishes like potentates, but Catholics are slowly waking up.

Belief in Santa is the same as belief in a "god" who will fix everything in the end. What hokum! As your neighbor's house burns down in California: "God was with us." Yeah, but he didn't like your sinful neighbor, I guess. Little kids get cancer and idiots try to somehow get a benevolent "god" in the picture. HOGWASH !!!!!

Religion is a crutch to help escape the harsh realities of life. Grow the fuck up.

Doesn't matter what God thinks if the rulers don't rule. It's a lot of work and God never worked hard that hard so you hire a bunch of cops to beat the shit out of people, lock them up, build a bunch of prisons and jail, dump a bunch of heavy street drugs in the suburbs, angel dust in the urban core and things will run themselves for a couple of decades. Now the yellow vest in Paris have written a new chapter? Turns out to be a global shit storm coming, the weather is fucked and the economy is fucked and people on the bottom are pissed off everywhere.

The Catholic Church has had a very dim view of suicide for nearly 2000 years. Had he killed himself 50 years ago the Church wouldn't have even offered to provide him a mass nor even a space in their cemeteries.

The way churches work is you find the one that embraces your beliefs and join, not join a church them seek to change it's beliefs. If this family doesn't like the Catholic Church's views on suicide, find a church that does.
