The sort of moonbats who run the media now control the White House and the Supreme Court too. But still they aren’t happy, because they haven’t finished consolidating their power…
The Atlantic writer Jeffrey Tayler is annoyed at the “educated elite” in our country. Why have they not risen to the occasion and labeled passionate religious belief a mental illness?
The writer’s disappointment followed the release of an article on The News Nerd entitled “American Psychological Association to Classify Belief in God as a Mental Illness.” In the story, Psychologist Dr. Lillian Andrews had stated: “The time for evolving into a modern society and classifying these archaic beliefs as a mental disorder has been long overdue.”
Yet the article, it turned out, was a hoax.
Alas for Mr. Tayler. Indeed, the journalist had already treated religion as a mental illness before this study had seemed to confirm it. Yet, “the hour was not nigh,” he wrote sadly. “Psychologists were not yet ready to diagnose firm belief in God as what it is: an unhealthy delusion.”
“Yet, would that it were so,” he whined in a piece for Salon. “Imagine, so many Supreme Court justices and Republican politicians, from Antonin Scalia to Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, disqualified in one fell swoop on mental health grounds from holding public office!”
Plus liberals could confine them in institutions and pump them full of drugs just like in the Soviet Union, disabling them as completely as if they were taken out and shot.
Not to worry, Tayler; momentum is on your side. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders has already removed homosexuality as a disorder, implying that it is normal to be a pervert. The “educated elite” won’t have to push the envelope much further to conclude that, by the same token, it is abnormal not to reject God.
