Does Islam Have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?

Written by Audrey Russo on March 26, 2014

It appears that the largest Islamic country in the world, Indonesia, is not satisfied with controlling the Muslim population alone…but as its prophet demands…they have now passed a law that will require all Muslim and Non-Muslim Indonesians to obey Sharia Islamic Law.

On the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the government has approved a law called the “Qanun Jinayat” which compels both Muslims and non-Muslims to observe the Sharia Islamic law. According to the edict, anyone who violates the precepts of the Islamic law, regardless of their religion, will be judged according to the Islamic law. Non-Muslims who violate the criminal code will have the choice to be judged in either civil courts or Islamic ones. (Wow…choice!!)

I know that this should be no surprise, as I mentioned in a recent article…but it started me thinking that maybe people aren’t the only ones with psychological problems, like Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), maybe the ideologies these people create are also OCD…?

The dictionary defines Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder (OCD) as an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that generate uneasiness, apprehension and fear by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety; or by a combination of such obsessions and compulsions.

Hmm…OK, but Muslims lose on one of the symptoms of the disorder, which includes excessive washing or cleaning. Nope, not known for stellar hygiene in their countries.

But also found on the list of symptoms is extreme hoarding; preoccupation with sexual, violent or religious thoughts; relationship-related obsessions; aversion to particular numbers; and nervous rituals. We have a winner!!

The truth is…ideologies are created by people. And warped and perverse ideologies are…you got it…created by warped and perverse people.

Looking at the Quran (words of the prophet) and the Hadiths (traditions of the prophet), it’s unequivocal that Islam was created by a warped and perverse person: Muhammed. A critter as OCD as they come…controlling not only those who were gullible enough to follow him, but it tells his maniacal minions to control ALL peoples on the earth.

So what’s the big deal about a horde of people who were brainwashed into OCD behaviors?
This horde of people who were brainwashed into OCD behaviors…carries weapons!

Shalom through strength…
