    I'm not suprised by the results, i think why it was so different in my class was because i live in the bible belt.

    I've had someone bring up religion very unsuccessfully and offensively while I was suicidal and someone else bring it up in a way that was helpful when I was suicidal at a different point. So it depends on the suicidal person, the person bringing it up, how they go about it, and a lot of other factors.

    this.

    I've been suicidal, and I had someone who brought God into it in a very loving, compassionate way which was helpful. I have no doubt though seen some people misguidedly bring God into it and do it in such an insensitive fashion that it just should not have happened.

    So it vaires on person, how it is brought up, etc. Too many factors for a black and white answer.

    I'm not asking about other people, I'm asking about personally and that would fit with i don't know.

    personally, my faith is a huge part of my life, so as long as it is done in a fair fashion I would appreciate someone bringing my faith into it.

    Using your religion first and foremost is basically saying "I don't have the time to understand your issue so I'm just gonna treat you like I would everybody else, the way I want to treat you"

    But it can be used well if you are a good person yourself.


    What I'm saying is: don't be a copypasta, spamming the same message for everyone and not taking into account individuals

    I'd much prefer that they listen and do something to safeguard than talk to me about religion or anything like that.

    I'm not religious in any way but I think I wouldn't be appalled if I can see someone bringing religion up not in a copypasta way like Terralynn mentioned, but because they genuinely want to help and hope this would help me. But even if that were the case, I wouldn't really know what to do with it. Honestly, I just can't believe in God, even if my life depended on it. To me it's always come across as a made-up story that doesn't make any sense whatsoever. I'm a pure Atheist at heart and wouldn't want it any other way, really - so long story short, no. Then again I can't think of anything anyone could say to help me in that kind of situation. I dunno. With me it's like when I'm in huge crisis, I'm in huge crisis and noone can help me but myself. When it's not that serious a lot of friends/things can help, though and I must add, I'm really good at cheering myself up and battling my way through adversities, so I think it's not very likely I'll ever get into that serious situation.
