It was interesting to read their take on what makes a community last. The idea that sacrifice is the glue sure works with the idea of misery loving company!

Religious beliefs are not mental illness. Saying so is disrespectful to people who truly have mental illness. We’ve talked about this before.

while I am not a professional. I do speak advisedly, religion meets the diagnostic manual meaning. and Wanda I am socially disordered with major depression, I have been diagnosed following bullying by an interfaith group. I not not mocking the mentally ill, I am one of them. the disrespect is not going to those in need of medical support – but naming the problem demographic being normalized when it should not – the medical profession needs to take a stand against religion – it is not therapy, just like the legal profession needs to take a stand on law as well.

I cannot agree with this and would appreciate you not calling religion “mental illness” on my site. It is disrespectful.

Oi Vey.  What’s next? Move election date because of Muslims day off is on Friday or because of some Islamic holiday? And what about other religions? Canada is a multicultural country with people ranging from one religious observation to the next. Don’t we need to shift the voting date to accommodate them too? Or are Jews getting special treatment only? If so, how’s that fair to other people of different religions who are Canadian citizens? They never thought about it, did they? Obviously, not.

To top it off, Canada is a Catholic country Historically. Our major religion by population in Canada is Catholicism.
Not a Jewish or Muslim state.

Today Canada is a post-Christian Secular Religious Pluralist State.1 Reply

time for religion to be in the diagnostic manual and out of the law and out of the medical industry.
