Here's the kicker. What about the adults who swear God speaks to them? Shouldn't they be seeing a psychiatrist as well? Or locked up, depending on what God is telling them to do?

If you consider an 60+ year old today..... perhaps, but I wouldn't judge them so harshly.

Science and the availability of information has changed drastically over the past 20 years. By the time I'm 80 I will certainly look at theists in a much different way than I look at my parents who are around that age. The tide is changing and it's happening very quickly. Statistics show that theism is being eradicated at an accelerating rate as information becomes more widely accessible. Atheism is increasing where there is relative freedom of information. Dictatorial theocracy and poverty is the food of ignorance. Patience, it's not going to change much in our short lifetimes but it will change.
