Good thing the Christians are in charge of the country, he'll probably be made a saint over this.

Back in high school, I witnessed a group of fundies exorcising a demon from someone in mid-class. I found it hilarious.

/knows all 'bout evil demons

(Joking aside, I can't believe that no one would notice that this woman was so insane that she'd do something like this. There had to have been signs that she was crazy.)

I like the strange speaking in tongues nonsense like what I saw in Borat.

Borat didn't even have to do much to get the laughs during that segment.

I was expelled from my Christian school in 9th grade when my principal told me I had an "aura of Lucifer", so I'm really getting a kick out of some of these replies.

I think she should have stabbed the demons out of herself before she went after the two year old.

It's a really long story that's sort of hard to explain. I'll just say that the administration had some serious mental issues. It was one of those hardcore fundamentalist Southern Baptist schools where everyone was related, everyone went to the same church, and about 1 in every 10 kids there had a parent that taught there. Needless to say, if you weren't part of the school's little religious "inner circle", you were treated completely differently discipline wise. Something as simple as not proclaiming your belief that Muslims worship satan (my father is a muslim), Catholics are idol worshiping anti-Christs (my stepmom's Catholic), and the King James English Bible was the original word of God that was there with the Trinity before 7 day creation would get you after school detention. Me and 5 of my friends started talking to people about the kind of things they would punish us for, and the administration got really pissed off. We found out through my friends dad and my other friend's grandpa, who were on the school board before they were asked to leave by the administrator, that she had actually had plans to get the 6 of us expelled since the beginning of my 9th grade year. My grandparents (both teachers), my friend's mom (a teacher), and the previously mentioned board members were all asked to leave and were threatened not to speak out about it just because they were associated with us. They all decided the Christian thing to do was to just leave the school alone and not talk about it, which kinda pissed me off. There was a lot more that went on, but like I said, it's a really long story and some of the details are kind of personal.

Does this "aura of Lucifer" allow you to make people burst into flames at will?

Seriously, that's something that has to be asked. Just wish I could ask the principal himself, since he seems to be the expert on such things.

The best part was when she did a public exorcism over the whole "chapel" (we gathered together for some pseudo church service every wednesday in the lunch room of their brand new building). She got up and started praying out all the "demons and goths and cutters and witchcraft practicers and atheists and sexually immoral from her school". The funny thing is, she told my mom I was a liar and made up the whole event. about 10 minutes later, my grandpa called and confirmed the whole incident saying it was one of the most disturbing things he'd ever seen, and he's as conservative as they come. He's been a missionary, taught at Bob Jones University, and he still thought the lady was batshiat crazy with the whole "demonic aura" thing.

She's not retarded. She's not a fundamentalist. She's probably just an aggressive paranoid schizophrenic. Let's not make this one psychiatric case into some sociocultural phenomenon.

Question about schizophrenia for anyone who knows:

Does it ever just escalate suddenly to demons and stabbings, or do most show signs before they "snap"? Can schizophrenics hide it?
 
2007-06-16 02:06:21 AM  
Yep, that's a stabbing


//Loves "that's a stabbing" headlines
 
2007-06-16 02:14:32 AM  
you know, this is not an isolated occurence... i know a person that this sort of thing happened too, just no fatal stabbings...

of course, he is pretty farked up, and needs help...

Epossumondas: Question about schizophrenia for anyone who knows:

Yes and no. It depends on the severity of the affliction, and in what context. Many schizophrenics can hide their hallucinatory experiences from those they meet briefly, acquaintances, and even friends.

The film A Beautiful Mind, starring Russell Crowe puts a good face on it.

Particularly when they do so within the context of a society that accepts religious hallucinations as beyond criticism.

Christianity did not make her do this, but Christianity may have provided the necessary camouflage.

Well since Xtians have such a control on society I'm sure she'll be back on the street within a few days. She was only doing the Lords work..

Or took the brown acid.

Of course, if Christianity is true, why not kill kids with demons? Fortunately, most regular Christians seem to understand deep down that it's all pretend.

sacheoltang: most regular Christians seem to understand deep down that it's all pretend.

They say the same thing about atheists, that deep down we really know there is a god and we just don't want to bow down to him.

The difference is, of course, that they are wrong.

Wow, I grew up in a communist country in Eastern Europe. It had a really brutal mental asylum system. Basically, anyone who acted crazy, and it was witnessed and documented well enough publicly to be looked into - ended up in the nuthouse - locked up, key thrown away sort of thing. I never once remember seeing any crazy people in public.

I was quite shocked when we emigrated to Australia. Anywhere you go in public, there are goddam crazy people everywhere, yelling out random shiat for no reason, etc. Once when I was a paper boy, some crazy cat lady came out of her house shrieking when I put some advertising material in her mailbox. She said I was an "agent of the Devil" and need to be burned alive. Then she ran inside threatening to come after me with a flaming torch. Of course, I just ran off, didn't wanna confront that shiat.

I sometimes really think the approach to crazy people in my old country was better. I know it probably sometimes snared people who have genuine mental health issues and aren't batshiat crazy and dangerous beyond repair, but damn, makes me wonder if that presumption is healthy or not sometimes. Crazy people suck. Crazy people who even show a *hint* of being dangerous to others should just not be allowed to wander the streets. But damn, I'm so torn up over what to do. The whole "lock them up in the nuthouse and throw away the key" thing probably wouldn't be acceptable in places that care about human rights, but on the other hand, I felt so much safer in a place which did it that way.
 
2007-06-16 06:15:51 AM  
rather than a stabbing, i thought a burning alive would be more appropriate.

perhaps a drownin'.

In America they don't let them wander the streets. They stick them in the White House and Pentagon, with occasional time off for clearing brush in Texas.

I exorcise demons, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies...

The stabbin' is integral to the success of your exorcism. You got to make enough holes for all the demons to escape through. Especially in such a small person. Otherwise, you end up with them getting log jammed in their major orifaces.

Melgania: I sometimes really think the approach to crazy people in my old country was better.

Yeah. Er, I think living in a shiatehole like your ex-homeland might have given you some serious issues. Speaking as a functional bipolar affective disorder sufferer I'm kinda glad that they don't "throw away the key". You surely have to understand that there are varying degrees of "insanity".

Some of us do pose a genuine threat to others and in a country with a decent mental health system (so not mine or America, dunno about Australia) that can be dealt with and treated properly; some of us are just a bit odd on the outside and need help with the agony of our inner turmoil. Like I say, it's a question of degree.

To suggest that the fascistic system of the communist bloc states might have got it right is bordering on the sociopathic, maybe we should throw your commie ass in the clink and see how you feel to be one of us? Yeah, I'm exaggerating greatly, but it doesn't feel good to be pigeonholed does it?

As for this case, this woman needs seperating from society and some heavy treatment, obviously she's an extreme case who should probably recieve residential treatment for life; and some of the other posters are absolutely correct, in a land where fundie christians are accepted as "normal" insanity like this can be easily camouflaged. Saying that, fundies are free to do as they will, as it should be, but we should be careful of people who talk to angels etc. That's not religon, it's schizophrenia or something similar.

I've tried my best to post this in as reasonable tone as possible, but I do have to add that your post makes me really bloody angry, and that if you really think what you say you think, despite the freedoms you've been granted in your new place of abode, you should fark off back to whichever backwater you originated from. If there's one thing I can't stand it's immigrants who go on about how much better things were done in "the old country". Sorry, but that just pisses me off. Learn some tolerance and enjoy your freedom.

Hey, no problem.

Sorry if I offended you, I was really just living out some bad memories when writing that post. What it really comes down to for me is the risk management issues of having people with given mental issues living freely in situations where they can cause harm to others in society.

The mental health management mentality here seems to be along the lines of: "well, he hasn't cut anyone's throat yet, despite threatening to do so 10,000 times, so we'll just let him wander the streets".

To me, that's kind of scary. It just seems like an out-of-context extention of the usual legal presumption of innocence, which is all well and good (and I wouldn't have it any other way, believe me, as someone who knows what more arbitrary justice systems can be like), but it gets a bit scary when applied to mental health policies, especially when it means that unstable (and potentially dangerous) people are left to wander the streets instead of being properly handled.

This is why I said I'm torn on the subject. I don't want to see innocent people with genuine mental health issues locked up arbitrarily and indefinitely. But at the same time, every time I see some shifty freak on the streets of Melbourne acting like he just might bash my brains out with a hammer because he things I have a robot controlling my brain so he wants to get it out (this actually happened here recently - paranoid schizophrenic bashed out someone's brains with a hammer because he thought they are being controlled by an alien robot), it just makes me stay home playing WoW more than I want to.

QFT.

Lunacy is often disguised as religion. This is because religion is, at its core, lunacy.
