Shadow to Light: "Does Secularism Make You More Vulnerable to Mental Illness?
I haven’t given this topic a lot of consideration, but the correlation between secularism and mental illness does seem worthy of further examination."
Of course being a secularist makes one more "vulnerable" to mental illness. This is because the foundational rationale of promulgating and ultimately imposing secularism upon society is a deliberate lie -- "You can't/shouldn't legislate morality!"
That above two-pronged claim is both incoherent and self-refuting; consider --
"You shouldn't legislate morality" -- This assertion is not only false, but is itself a moral claim. Thus, as a legislative prescription, it is self-refuting.
"You can't legislate morality" -- This assertion is false; and it is a deliberate lie: the people (i.e. generally leftists and 'atheists') who promote this have no intention of "not legislating morality" once they gain power ... for that is impossible in any event. Rather, they what to bamboozle people with a (relatively) normal moral compass into believing the lie, as a step on the way to imposing their own twisted morality upon those same people.
There is *always* a "god of the system"; and if that god isn't the Creator of men, it will be a creation of men; if that god isn't the God who feeds men, it will be a god who feeds off men.
To legislate *just is* it impose someone's moral conceptions upon the society ruled by that legislature; there is no such thing as moral neutrality ... and the people (i.e. generally leftists and 'atheists') pretending to advocate for moral neutrality know this, and have no intention of abiding by their claims of moral neutrality once they have power over your lives. Just look at what they have been doing (in merely the USA) in the past few years, before they even have the full control over State violence that they seek.
So: "Does Secularism Make You More Vulnerable to Mental Illness?"
Answer: Does trying to live contrary to reality "make you more vulnerable to mental illness"? Or: Is trying to live contrary to reality evidence that one is *already* mentally ill?
