koler, I would just like to say that not all Christian denominations believe that. I do not believe that your friend went to hell b/c he killed himself.
I am an Independent Baptist, and we believe that salvation is a gift given by God through Jesus. We believe that all you need do is believe on Jesus and that He is the true Son of God, and follow Him. That is all it takes to get to Heaven, later on I'll quote many verses that show this to be true. So if your friend was saved (bleieved on Jesus) then he went to heaven, regardless of how he died.
I have more things to say, but I have to go ,sorry. I will comment later when I get a chance.
Also, I would like to know what rights you say the "Christian majority" has stripped you of? I know of none, but I do know of many rights that Christians have been stripped of by the secular population. I'll take time to mention them later, I really have to go now.
