Is God Fiction A Mental Illness?
Nov 13th, 2017 at 2:53pm
 
Yes advocates label proposed same-sex marriage law, backed by No campaign, a ‘licence to discriminate’

YES campaigners have said a proposed same-sex marriage law is so poorly written even heterosexuals could find themselves discriminated against.

http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/gay-marriage/yes-advocates-label-proposed-sames...






Why are people allowed to legally discriminate in a secular country, on the grounds of religious fictions.

Fictional religious gobbledygook should be taxed.

Government education funding only to non religious state schools.

Removal of tax advantages for fictional religious charities.

And a full medical investigation into religious beliefs, in it being a mental illness.
If so, protecting children from it.

Angry NZ pastor moves to Australia

A KIWI preacher who says gay people should be shot in the head and women belong in the kitchen has set up a church in Australia.

A New Zealand preacher who said gay people should be shot in the head and that Kiwi PM Jacinda Ardern belonged in the kitchen has packed up shop — and moved to Australia.
Pastor Logan Robertson has announced via Facebook that he and his family had moved to Brisbane and had “planted” a new church in the city.

Religion has a place in civilized society.

In some people, there is a need to have the security of a parent like omnipotent being to protect and look after them.

Good religions teach people how to live with kindness and in an altruistic way.
They help those less fortunate and give of themselves, gaining self worth not otherwise available.

Bad religions impose draconian requirements and preach bigotry, always demanding more and more of their followers, from monetary to personal commitment in the extreem.

A religion safe in its truth has no issues with its followers talking to and mixing openly with other religions.
A religion or cult that knows it has only lies as its mantra, will forbid its followers from mixing, afraid that they will see the truth that theirs takes more than it gives.

There in nothing wrong or mentally unstabe with religion
It how the religion is interpreted and enforced that creates mental illness.

Is fighting over property and resources a mental illness too: because that's what a society does and is indeed why it needs itself to survive!

Australian society was developing in a secular direction due to an inherited cynicism about God's blessings in a hard-scrabble fight with nature, and the hypocrisy of the churches, but that is not the case now. After the 1960s, credibility was given back to the unsubstantiated claims of spiritualism in many forms including the traditional religions. This was done by a generation that didn't see much of the early hard-scrabble life, and could afford the luxury of dabbling in fantasies.

What is superior. The deity, or the religious machination that pretends to represent that deity?
So in your version, did the deity give everything, or did the religion that uses that deity give everything?


The trouble with religion is it's fictions slows down evolutional quantum leaps. It's like a wet blanket.

Religion has a place in a civilised society.
Yes, the museum.

Religion : supposed to create attributes like goodness, kindness, altruistic ... so these people if not influenced by religion would be the opposite?

That's crap. It's religion being used to pretend superiority. It's implying if you are not religious then you can't be a decent person.
