The really F*cked and funny thing is they start off rather calm throwing out their talking points. However when you methodically debunk each one. The really crazy comes out and they go off the rails… just look at that…
It is certifiable crazy talk… It is some kind of mental illness we refuse to address or identify..look at it…
People get all over me when I say that fundamentalist religion and conservatism are mental illness.
Though this is not a discussion about religion you might not that Sherri Tull thinks we are going to need and act of god.
On one hand she cold be delusional on the other maybe not unless it is an article of religious faith. I call bullshit on the DSM.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), is the single most important text used by clinicians. It is the diagnostic rulebook. Currently, the DSM grants religious delusions an exemption from classification as a mental illness. The following is the DSM-IV’s definition of delusion:
“A false belief based on incorrect inference about external reality that is firmly sustained despite what almost everyone else believes and despite what constitutes incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary. The belief is not one ordinarily accepted by other members of the person’s culture or subculture (e.g. it is not an article of religious faith). When a false belief involves a value judgment, it is regarded as a delusion only when the judgment is so extreme as to defy credibility. Delusional conviction occurs on a continuum and can sometimes be inferred from an individual’s behavior. It is often difficult to distinguish between a delusion and an overvalued idea (in which case the individual has an unreasonable belief or idea but does not hold it as firmly as is the case with a delusion)” (2000, p. 765).
