In Theravada Buddhism, a person can become a god, and during godhood attain a state of enlightenment which results in ending the cycle of rebirth. Some of the final stages of this cycle involve letting go of the will to live, followed by letting go of the will to exist in any form. Losing the will to live or exist at all happens exclusively in god form. After losing the will to exist, conciet, restlessness, and ignorance go away too. Then, nirvana is attained and the person isn’t born again.

Talk about glorifying suicide.

Nowhere in the precepts does it say that you should take life.

Buddhism asserts that the desire to exist is a manifestation of ignorance and pain, and that ending the cycle of rebirth is holy and desirable. How if that different from a non-Buddhist seeing existence as pain, desiring to go to sleep and never wake up again?

I’m not sure what you mean by “stupid,” but Christianity promotes slave morality.
