One thought on “LDS Funeral Trauma

  1. Kaydell Leavitt says:

    After one of my suicide attempts, I was home and went out to take a walk. A neighbor saw me who was a friend and she gave me a hug and said to me, “Kaydell, I’m glad you didn’t die, because you would have gone to hell!”.

    She wasn’t LDS, and I don’t know where she got the idea that I would have gone to hell, but official LDS doctrine is that only God knows enough to judge somebody that commits suicide and although suicide is wrong, you don’t go to hell. Maybe, LDS local leaders don’t’ know official Mormon Doctrine on the subject which the following link is a link to an article under “S” for “Suicide” in Gospel Topics at lds.org.

    Will you all email this link to your bishops and branch presidents so that they can offer comfort to the loved ones of victims of suicide rather than merely enforcing authoritarian rules?!

    Speak truth to authority!
