Yup. The best and most logical explanation to give for this reasoning.

Well you see first Religion was invented, and everyone was told they would one day find paradise in the afterlife. So eventually people started to ask "Hang on! If paradise is waiting for us in the afterlife what are we doing buzzing around this shit-hole?".
This probably lead to people hopping off the merry-go-round, but the powers that be couldn't lose their worker bees, so what else could they do?
"Suicide is against God!!! *whispers*Phew! that was a close one"
It probably went something like that.

I am not talking about a dying person dying a few days early to ease there suffering or some one dying for a cause, etc
I am talking about people that kill themselves over girlfriends, fights with there wife, bankruptcy, etc.

It takes courage to turn the gun on your ownself, takes courage to face death.
