Religious belief - really a Mental Illness?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. No, the Great Sky Pixie really does exist and cares for me!

  2. The GSP may or may not exist, but doesn't care about me either way

  1. Amusing paper especially "Approximately 75% of the American victims of this mental illness are Christians." What is he saying there's not many Muslims/Jews/Jedis etc that actually believe!!??

    That and the bit where you go to the comments left and they are all adverts for viagra...................................
  2. He doesn't like religion or religious people much, does he?

    Rather a prejudiced starting point he takes and dives headlong into some fine lunacy of his own.

    But tell me, what is a "Formal military pilot"?

    Is that a member of the RAF who actually knows what an iron is for? :?
  3. So far two attacks on the messenger, none on the message.
  4. Can't be bothered to read it to be honest but I do know a lot of religious maniacs who have had nervous breakdowns. Not sure if it was before or after they got religion though.
  5. Andy P,

    Is ARRSE a religion yet, if so my increasing belief and devotion does resemble a mental illness...............
  6. Na na na na na na na na leader
    Na na na na na na na na leader
    leader, leader
    etc etc ....

    I think God has a pretty bad management style really. Just think about it - only a shiite middle manager would send out so many mixed messages and expect his lads to get on with it. What a useless fat, bearded, middle-class old tosser. (zap...lightning strike incoming)
