Coming our way: Christianity as mental illness

persecution

Christians are already identified as potential terrorists by the Obama regime’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Now a British science writer named Kathleen Taylor, is advancing a provocative and politically incendiary idea — that “religious fundamentalism” (whatever that term means) may one day be treated as a mental illness.

The (UK) Times refers to Taylor as “a science author and research scientist at the University of Oxford.” But Taylor describes herself as “a freelance science writer affiliated to the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford,” who had “trained as a neuroscientist after doing a first degree in philosophy and physiology at the University of Oxford.” She specifically states she is not a “therapist”. And yet she’s tossing claims about “religious fundamentalism” being a “mental illness”!

(Note: I’ve spent most of life in academe, beginning as an undergraduate student to eventually being a full professor, but I have no idea what a freelance writer “affiliated” to a university means. I am retired from my university and although I’m no longer employed there, I am “affiliated” to my university as a professor emeritus. In Taylor’s case, however, her “affiliation” to Oxford carries no title. It appears what her “affiliation” means is that she was a student at Oxford U.)

The (UK) Times‘ article on Taylor is titled “Science ‘may one day cure Islamic radicals’,” and attributes to Taylor the claim that “Muslim fundamentalism may one day be seen in the same way as mental illness is today and be ‘curable’.”

Curiously, Huffington Post‘s account of Taylor makes no mention of radical Islam but refers only to a vaguely generic “religious fundamentalism.” According to HuffPo, Taylor was speaking at the Hay Literary Festival in Waleswhen she was asked what she foresaw as positive developments in neuroscience in the coming years.

  1. BRAIN WASHING,is when you have a government ,WHO teaches children, ITS normal for adults to rape and molest children and anyone who disagrees with that has a mential illness,LIKE THE FAGOTS and QUEERS WHO RUN THE US GOVERNMENT,and not to worry the police gangs are being trained to deal with parents who come to the schools mad because their children just annouced THEY WERE CASTRATED by the school nurse today,but they will shoot to kill if you don’t like it…..so ,good luck,you wanted whores and demons teaching your children to be good little fagots and queers………………………………
