Well, I'm not sure, I don't think this specific issue has come up before. On the one hand, that's a belief (and explicitly stated that way). And beliefs like that are relevant here.

OTOH, it's not supportive of people who have taken their life. I know, if someone's taken their life, they're not here to read any of this, but there *are* people here (1) who are suicidal and (2) who have lost loved ones to suicide. How does expressing beliefs like that affect those people?
