religion VS mental illness
I just read an article about mental illness in religion and started wondering if highly religious people might be considered as mentally ill. I mean like there have been a lot of mass suicides do to religious backround and reasons but are these people really considered ar religious in that fact. and if they believe in a certain religion does it leave a stain to religious beliefs.
I am not saying that i agree with that fact. in fact - i am a believer myself. It just got me wondering what would you guys think
the article is found at http://www.superbious.com/Religious/arti...lness.html

I would appreciate your input in that manner

How is "I have an imaginary friend that dictates policy" not mental illness? Consider

What needs to happen, in this case, is the removal of stigma from mental illness, so that peeps are not afraid to ask the question, "am I a fucking nutbag," of themselves and their contemporaries.

The prophet that speaks for god is also an expert on being a fucking nutbag. But, you are correct. Might need to qualify such for the n00b. Thumbsup

Yep, truth in advertising, full disclosure, and all that kind of stuff.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
