    Why does that happen on this site so much? Seriously. I made the statement that bullying is the American Way. That does not mean it is exclusive and my post does not say that. If you misunderstand, if my post is unclear....fine. But I clarify the reader consistently tells me what I REALLY meant. WTF?

    It's that cowboy mentality that permeates our culture.

    Give a case of somebody that is happy with life killing themselves. Otherwise, you don't have an argument.

    Being unhappy isn't a mental illness. Try again.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Then whether a person is happy or not is irrelevant, isn't it? Clearly, people who are happy are much less likely to kill themselves than people who are unhappy. People who are unhappy often have a reason for being unhappy and it doesn't imply there is something wrong with them that requires your help to fix.

    Agreed... I think we agree overall on this issue, to be honest.

    Heh, then why are we arguing?

    Okay. calm down.
