Irrational Dichotomy (n): Division into two mutually exclusive, opposed, or contradictory groups: a dichotomy between thought and action, or holding two contradictory beliefs simultaneously.
When a person is exposed to evidence which runs counter to their previously held notions of reality, there exists within their mind a contradictory dichotomy of ideas which must eventually become resolved. This is an uncomfortable, and often distressing time for them and can, if un-resolved for an extended period of time, lead to mental illness.
Christians, and indeed all Religious adherents, fall into this group. And they are not allowed to resolve these dichotomies.
Understanding and enlightenment comes to one when that dichotomy is ultimately resolved and beliefs once again fall in-line with observable reality.
The World's Problems Were Not

The world's problems were not all created by religion. One World Religion is not the solution.
HOWEVER, OBAMA DOES NOT SUPPORT ONE WORLD RELIGION: He clearly supports a pluralistic society, including freedom of worship.
What Is Talked About Here

What is talked about here does not LEAD to mental illness - it DEFINES mental illness and it has nothing to do with religion, just because it also manifests among religious people. Why do you think we see so much suffering - murdering, wars, environmental destruction, greed, and on and on. WHY? Because there are two sets of opposite rules for behavior and it has nothing to do with religion. It has to do with the ELITE RULING CLASS. They have no rules for themselves. They only establish rules for the sheeple.
