A N.I.C.E. neurologist from Oxford's school of hideous strength has proposed treating religious fundamentalism as a mental disorder.

She told The Times of London: "One of the surprises may be to see people with certain beliefs as people who can be treated. Someone who has for example become radicalized to a cult ideology -- we might stop seeing that as a personal choice that they have chosen as a result of pure free will and may start treating it as some kind of mental disturbance."
Taylor admits that the scope of what could end up being labelled "fundamentalist" is expansive. She continued: "I am not just talking about the obvious candidates like radical Islam or some of the more extreme cults. I am talking about things like the belief that it is OK to beat your children. These beliefs are very harmful but are not normally categorized as mental illness. In many ways that could be a very positive thing because there are no doubt beliefs in our society that do a heck of a lot of damage, that really do a lot of harm."
What she doesn't say, because this will only come later, is that this will then be turned from "child-beaters" and "terrorists" to simple Christians; as in, "those homosexual-hating bigots who refuse to accept gay marriage" and "those misogynistic chauvinists who refuse to support abortion and contraception." Eventually, "free will" becomes the enemy of the servile state, and while this lady does not outright deny the existence of free will, I suspect that she (and much of the rest of her field) has embraced a materialist's conception of man in which there is nor room for will. Right now, it's the child-abusers (the definition will be loosened eventually, when the time is ripe) and the Jihadists (eventually to include anybody who does not swear complete obeisance to Ceaser and his holy academics).
The real question is when we'll find a way to cure people of the brainwashing they receive first in the public school and then (more thoroughly) in the universities.
