    well, you were right, Whit, and I was wrong. Remember earlier I suggested we be nicer to Dan and hear him out?

    As his comments have receded from the factual, objective world further into delusion, I notice how much more this feels like conversations I’ve had with patients at Bellevue, VA centers and other psychiatric centers.

    I don’t know how it is in England and elsewhere, but now that I live in the Southeastern US, it’s quite striking how people conditioned from childhood to believe in a completely fact-less, delusional form of Christianity find it very easy to slip into belief in materialistic delusions.

    I don’t think it’s irrelevant that the largest faction of Trump supporters are the Southern Baptists, and that this branch of Christianity was founded on a mission to prove black people are inferior to whites.
