When they finally convince themselves that they speak for God, they also convince themselves that they no longer have to think about what they say. They can say whatever they like, no matter how thoughtless; no matter how nonsensical, and it is still true because God wouldn't let them say it if it wasn't true.

 

They say religion is not a mental illness, but it's getting close...

I can't take it anymore. I know I say that all the time, but it just gets worse and worse and worse ever day.

 

Sunday we had a big wind storm and power outages were extremely broad. so I made a joke about how maybe DrumpAss turned the power off  until he gets his wall. Then a close relative, not my husband, said.." We need something, we can't be taking care of all those people trying to get in"  [smilie=grayball-intent.gif]  [smilie=graytard.gif]

 

Drumpass and his henchwoman Sarah Fuckabug are now convincing the dim witted that we have hordes of terrorist coming across the border. 

 

You will love this...and on Faux news no less. [smilie=happydance.gif]  [smilie=hrmm.gif]

 

(forgive me for making you look at Sarah)

I still regard religion as a form of addiction.  Consider what happens when people become intoxicated.  Their judgement becomes faulty.  Many become loud and belligerent -- with an exaggerated sense of their own competence.  They become impervious to reason.  They want others to drink with them.

 

In terms of actual brain chemistry, gambling addiction might be a better model.  We have patterns of destructive, irrational and antisocial behavior -- also intent on bringing others into the activity.

 

 

God's lack of morality is a separate issue.  If we look at a different fictional character -- like Captain Ahab -- Yes, we might say that Captain Ahab is unreasonable.  And God is immoral.

This is why mental illness often manifests as extreme religiosity. Any dose of religion is ill advised, but an overdose is insanity.

Most people have no trouble consuming modest amounts of alcohol.  Some "extremists" become alcoholics.

 

For those who do become alcoholics; AA has a caution.  "One drink is too much.  A thousand is not enough."

 

In like manner, I think this applies to religion.  Many find it a harmless pleasure.  Others are destroyed by it.  In fairness, religion is more like opium than alcohol.  More addicting and more dangerous.
