Atlantic Writer Jeffrey Tayler Wants Christianity Officially Considered a Mental Illness

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.

Jeffrey-Tayler
Taylor wants you in a straitjacket.

    So he thinks he’s a competent behavioral health care practioner and advisor!
    Guess he doesn’t know that much…
    If psychiatrists are the EXPERT authority on all things Christian…
    Then tell me why, Mr Taylor, they and psychologists, have known, higher than average…
    Incidences of suicide…Huuummm?
    As it is commonly known even among them…
    Suicide is a “permanent” final solution,
    For what is considered a “temporary” problem…
    After all self destruction is is primarily a state of mind,
    Before the act of carrying it out…

    Progressive fascists simply cannot resist the urge to round people up and herd them into re-education or labor camps. It is in their DNA.

    Anytime these little piss ant libtards feel that they are up to it, they have a standing invitation. I’m not about to be rounded up, but I will meet them in single combat to the death. I train in full armor everyday, no reason I can’t take a day off for an actual gunfight.

    I seem to remember people being thrown in mental hospitals in the USSR for not believing that Communism was so great. Obviously they were insane so bring on the straight jacket. A little Thorazine to make them more pliable and the problem is solved. Solved just like it will be here if we don’t stop these people.

    I don’t even know how they let this guy out unsupervised!
    Cognitive disassociation behavior isn’t considered criminal either…
    Had an athiest patient once, who used to be a university professor that was so dillusional…
    Used to roll her stool into little balls and save them in her sock and underwear drawer…
    She was harmless, but darn if she wasn’t about 50 cents short of a dollar!

    Well, it doesn’t really matter what’s diagnosed as a mental illness and what isn’t.
    And if homosexuality used to be termed a mental illness until the ‘gay’ lobby forced psychiatrists to overturn that decision then if Christianity is declared a mental illness, I’m sure that Moonbats will ignore the fact that it is…. because they’re not hypocrites are they?

    With the world crying about a f#$^ing lion being shot by a moron dentist and not many giving hoot about babies being killed and their body parts sold, would anyone care if Jeffery Taylor met a similar fate? The only thing that keeps this country from turning into a Mad Max movie at least for now is most of us were raised with Christian morals (thou shall not Kill and turn the other cheek) Otherwise people like Jeffery would be fair game. I believe some of these sick Marxist found in media and in education think somehow they will be protected by either strong security forces or military sometime in the near future and that they will be in positions of power to implement their demented sick plans. Keep on wishing Jeffery because ass$%^s like you would either have to flee the country and take refuge in Cuba or be found under desk in soiled pants crying laying in a fetal position, right before your dragged off to the executioner.
