Quote of the week

My colleagues and I often care for patients suffering from hallucinations, prophesying, and claiming to speak with God, among other symptoms—in mental health care, it’s sometimes very difficult to tell apart religious belief from mental illness…. Our conclusions frequently stem from the behaviors we see before us. Take an example of a man who walks into an emergency department, mumbling incoherently. He says he’s hearing voices in his head, but insists there’s nothing wrong with him. He hasn’t used any drugs or alcohol. If he were to be evaluated by mental health professionals, there’s a good chance he might be diagnosed with a psychotic disorder like schizophrenia. But what if that same man were deeply religious? What if his incomprehensible language was speaking in tongues?

Male prostitute now claim info on Juan Uys

A reader alerts me to the fact that the SA male prostitute site now claims that information will shortly appear about the “gay activist” Juan Uys. This move comes shortly after many people – including myself – began to argue that this “male prostitute” was none other than serial trickster Juan Uys/Neil Watson.

It seems pretty obvious that if the male prostitute was not Juan Uys, he would have been happy for others to think that he was. By claiming that Juan Uys will also be one of his “victims”, he is really trying to claim that he is not Juan Uys. Which suggests very strongly that he is but that he wants us to think different.
