“Authoress Suggests Very Religious Are Mental Cases”
Does she mean like the ‘Let’s kill everyone who isn’t Muslim’ Terrorists???
What's that? Fear of vaccines?
Homosexual behavior is insane. A male trying to mate with another male’s anal canal is insane. A female trying to mate with another female using a rubber appliance is insane. It’s like having Aunt Rosie sitting at your dinner table tring to eat by sticking a turkey baster in her ear and telling you that’s her life style. It may be, but it’s still insane behavior.
Hyperreligiousity is quite recognizable and is very different from what any religious person would consider normal. Carrying a Bible around with them is the least of their problems.
Yeah, because atheist countries like the USSR and North Korea have always been utopias.
They are also those are the ones who are suffering from mental illness.
“God gives not a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.”
Christianity,and Judaism are basically peaceful and positive.Those who adhere to either one,even very firmly,cannot reasonably be considered to be of low intelligence or mentally ill.I don't know enough about Hinduism or Buddhism to make a judgment either way but I have a hunch that the same can be said of them as well.
OTOH,"Satanism" and The Religion of Pieces are a different matter altogether.The same could probably be said of other religions as well.
how about religions like environmentalists,
who want millions to die, to “preserve the planet”?
or religions like communism ?
or even, religions like Atheism
(which IS a religion. unlike agnostics,
atheists BELIEVE there is no God.
even if they admit there is no evidence.
so, it is a belief, based on faith.)
This broad is a kook.
Many will read Lobergs essay and unwittingly think she has scientific or clinical evidence to support her hypothesis that a lot of very religious people are walking around with a screw loose.
Actually it is a little worse than that.
What is at work here is that people will have their personal prejudices reinforced.
People who by their personal thoughts and attitudes consider the religious odd or personally repellant will give this womans personal unfounded opinion a weight of authority that it in no way deserves simply because it was published.
The Left frequently uses this propaganda technique to great effect to counter the Rights historically proven economic policies.
It is certainly no coincidence that this article and book are coming out shortly before a national election where the Religious Right is a voting block on which the Republicans must depend to carry the election.
The Leftist media will seize on this article to try and push a few undecided voters away from the Republican camp simply by having these voters not want to associate themselves with the mentally ill.
Considering that psychology is a soft science in which you make it up as you go along, I find her credentials to be adequate.
Actually, it is the rejection of Christianity with its soul saving power that is insanity....
Secularism, PC, is a religious creed, insisting on compliance.
Failure to comply with its doctrine begins with scorn and, later, to death. Death is the end game.
Its god is the power of government.
Its sacrificial mass is abortion.
Actually, it is the rejection of Jesus with His soul saving power that is insanity....
About Erica Loberg
by John M. Grohol, Psy.D.
August 7, 2012
Erica Loberg was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. She attended Columbia University in New York and graduated with a BA in English.
She is a published poet and author of Inside the Insane. Her book is a memoir that takes an in-depth look at her own struggles with Bipolar II coupled with a look at inpatient psychiatric wards in Los Angeles County, California.
I was diagnosed with Bipolar II in 2006 and find little education on living with bipolar II versus Bipolar I, says Erica. Often times I try to hone in on that experiences since it is less understood or discussed in our culture than bipolar I disease. I also work with the mentally ill so glean material from that experience to further advocate for mental illness awareness.

Yeah, we look like nuts. I think C.S. Lewis said Jesus was either nuts or the savior of the world. So it's not surprising that his followers would be viewed as nuts.
We should send her to the Mid East to further her study. She could publish her next tome in Al Zera.(sp)
The only thing crazy about today’s Christians, is that they have 1000 cheeks, two cloaks in the garage, and no sword.
When Paul was bitten by a snake, he didn’t seek bipartisan accords with it, he threw it into the fire.
And he didn’t look to get bit again to prove anything to the anybody who missed it. And that’s the name of THAT tune.
