Sigh. I should have known I would not get to have the last word.

If it makes you feel better, I expect Mr. Hsiung probably would say that referring to someone's posts as "your obsessions" is unsuportive. He might even consider it uncivil. Perhaps he will come back and sanction me. I miss him. What about you? Do you miss Dr. Bob?

> I used this Jesus of Nazareth as an example of that people called him names and could be classified by psychiatry as being obsessed.

What do you think psychiatry would have to say about Jesus if he showed up today? How do people tell the difference between a healthy obsession and an unhealthy one?


> Tabitha's statement,[...I don't see how things turned out so well for Jesus...] degrades and insults those that give service and worship to him. For her statement could be thought by a subset of Christiandom people as that Jesus was stupid and suffered a horrible death for no reason and that His bringing the news to repent for the kingdom of heaven was at hand was an obsession that led to his death.

Huh. I can see how you could infer that from what I said, but it's way harsher than anything I think. I recognize that Jesus' death has a huge meaning for at least a billion people. But a person lacking Christian belief might see a man who agitated the authorities of his time so much that he ultimately died a horrible death, and might think that is not such a good role model for a person struggling to attain moderation in their life and mental health.

Admittedly it was a flip remark. Unsupportive as well, probably. Sometimes I like to say something that seems witty to me without fully considering the result. It probably stings people some time, but I don't think it's fair to call it hate.
