Your Personal Mental Health Prevention Clinic: Now Free Online!

The Internet is one of the most powerful tools to help us in the battle against mental health. Some web resources are especially helpful in mental health prevention, such as this recent contribution from the Huffington Post (discussed in detail at FAIRLDS). Online anti-cult resources are also powerful tools. With their help, when you see a Mormon on the street or on TV, you'll soon be hearing little voices inside your head warning you that they do not believe in Christ, no matter what they say, teach, preach, and believe. You'll also hear spooky music, feel a cold chill, see dark shadows ooze into view, and recognize deadly fangs in their smile. That which once was innocuous or positive will be transformed into a terrifying encounter with raw evil. You have a right to be scared out of your wits, and rabid anti-Mormonism is the perfect ticket to achieve that witless state of angry, fearful paranoia. This kind of mental health prevention does more than just transform you: it can also transform relationships and even help win elections, too!

The Internet isn't the only way to practice effective mental health prevention, of course. Many old-fashioned books and DVDs can be used, such as Ed Decker's mind-jarring The God Makers. I saw this used last year by a highly skilled mental health prevention therapist/pastor in a popular evangelical clinic in Wisconsin, where two adult children of recently converted Mormon parents were virtually reduced to quivering hysteria regarding the zombie-like transformation of their parents into demonic soul-suckers. They had unmasked Voldemort, and no matter how much mom and dad explained that they believed in Jesus Christ, it didn't matter. Logic, evidence, detailed statements from the Church about what we believe and teach about Christ--none of that matters. Once Ed Decker's voice and his orchestra of spooky strings is inside your head, you'll never be the same.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. That's the key to successful mental health prevention. Oh, and it sells books, too! Yikes, did you know that a Mormon politician will be controlled by a demonic cult if elected? And never make any independent decisions again? Just like those ultra-conservative, orthodox zombie-Mormon politicians Harry Reid and Mitt Romney have been doing all these years?

It would have been nice if they would have at least gotten the references right. *cough cough 3rd Nephi*

When I joined our Church, a little over six years ago, I was nearly overwhelmed by the number of "friends" who made such selfless efforts to prevent my mental health. Fortunately, through the power of the Holy Ghost and by "experimenting" upon Alma's words, I was able to stay relatively sane. However, I found additional therapy in the pages of JeffLindsay.com and FairLDS. As stated by Austin Farrar, "Rational argument does not create belief, but it maintains a climate in which belief may flourish". I owe you a sincere and overdue "Thank You" for providing the rational argument.

Down here in Texas, I had a Unitarian friend of mine (no idea how I found one) tell me of this time a guy she was dating asked her what she believed in.

She said science, and her Christian date put a shocked look on his face and said "you're a Scientologist??"

Anyways, I think religion does funny things to peoples' heads. Not much getting around it these days.

Mitt Romney's actual record could be used as a "puppet" record as his record isn't out of line with any church teachings. Harry Reid not so much...

Puppet record? You missed his past pro-abortion stance? His support of big government, big spending, Romney care, gay marriage, etc.? Are we talking about the same Romney? You must be worshiping a different Romney.

Please show me on his record as governor (not the things he said to get there his actual record) he did something pro-abortion?

Again on his record please show me where he supported Gay marriage (he actually tried to get a ballot measure on when the state supreme court legislated from the bench, the state legislature killed it, Romney could do nothing after.

He cut 2500 government jobs as governor that is shrinking government not enlarging it.

He also vetoed over 200 bills including every tax hike sent his way and balanced the state budget while CUTTING taxes and spending. Last I checked that wasn't the behavior of a big spender.

Romney-care has no bearing on any church teaching at all so I have no Idea why you even mentioned it. That said you do realize that the legislature was trying to pass fully state run and funded medicine right. You do realize that Romney-care initially (before they changed it well after he was out of office) actually cut the cost of insurance for employers and single payers. Romney-care also kept it in the private sector and made it impossible unless they undo it completely to pass socialized medicine.

As for the individual mandate while I may not like it nor would I want it in my state it is still constitutional for a state to do it. For example the majority of states in the republic require you to purchase homeowners insurance. All of them require you to purchase auto insurance.

It's easy to make accusations without backing them up with facts though you may look the fool when you do...
