Is being a Muslim a mental disorder?

I'll report, you decide:

An Ohio man who became loud and disruptive aboard a flight from Miami to Detroit -- at one point telling those around him he ``wanted to kill all the Jews'' -- was removed from the airplane before takeoff and arrested late Wednesday.

The man in custody is identified as Mansor Mohammad Asad, 43, who authorities sayposed no potential security threat.

Miami-Dade police say he caused enough of a ``disturbance'' that the pilot had to return to the jet-bridge. When Asad was taken off the plane to be interviewed by police, he threatened officers, made racial comments and charged an officer, authorities said. He was Tasered twice.

...

Asad's son, Mickey Asad, who was not traveling with his father, told The Miami Herald his father has bipolar disorder. He told the Associated Press the elder Asad had been in and out of mental institutions when he was younger.

``It's not what it's made out to be,'' Mickey Asad told The Herald. ``I don't know, someone had to have pushed his buttons. I don't know, I couldn't explain honestly. Of course he's not a terrorist.''

Ok... ok... I'm engaging in some supposition while assuming the man is a Muslim... after all, the article didn't exactly say...

And given his hatred of Jews, he very well could be a progressive Christian...

Just saying.

So the son knows Dad has gone off the deep end, that makes it safe for Dad to get on an airplane?

How many times have we heard of nut-cases going off AND THE FAMILY KNEW THE PERSON WAS UNSTABLE?

But that's our kinder and gentler society today. We no longer "warehouse" people like this. Just let them wander the streets, as they HAVE A RIGHT NOT TO TAKE THEIR MEDS.

Too bad the passengers just didn't beat Dad senseless.

He is NOT a terrorist he just forgot to take his pill!!! That's all how many of us have done that once in our lives some of us are HERE because someone forgot to take their PILL?! Me for instance! I grew up around him after he was released from Prison he is my sisters uncle and he is not crazy just has a short fuse and I know for a fact SOMEONE was pushing his buttons cuz he is normally a pleasant person to be around?! WHAT A SHOCK!!! Man I hope next time Im on a flight I remember to take MY PILLS!!! thanks~!

"Progressive Christian"???

What's that? It sounds like an oxymoron to me. In general progressives despise Christians and Christianity. Christianity is the ONE religion they have absolutely no tolerance for.

Likewise Christians in general are strong supporters of Israel and Jews.

The formulation above just shows breathtaking ignorance.

Maggie Mama:

Must be a PROGRESSIVE Christian because EVANGELICAN Christians believe the JEWS MUST BE IN CONTROL OF JERUSALEM when CHRIST RETURNS.

EVANGELICAN/aka BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIANS have been doing major fundraising to assist poor Russian, African, and European Jews in immigrating to Israel. It is part of the prophesy.

I really don't know how many "progressive" Christians there are in the world ... not counting the "heads" of certain LIBERAL denominations and, of course, members of the media.

Of course they did. This fits the leftist template perfectly. Radical Muslims always do what they do only because we provoke them. We get what we deserve, really...

Is it a mental illness?

I don't know is a religion that teaches that non-believers are less than human and ought to be slaughtered, that teaches that women are property and have no rights what-so-ever and that teaches that the way to heaven is to murder innocent civilians, is that sane?

You tell me.

On the other hand, everyone in the world got a pretty good look at how security handles someone who is apparently a violent anti-Semite.

It is if You suffer from the religion of mentally deranged peace..

Judy:

He definitely did turn out to be a Moslem and, by the way, if he had screamed about killing any other (politically correct) minority, he would have been arrested for committing a hate crime. When a guy wants to kill Jews (or actually does, as at the Seattle Jewish Center) it is a mental illness.

Well this seems easy enough... (Below threshold)
hcddbz:

Well this seems easy enough to prove, have the son produce the medical records. Then get the poor man on his meds and if he refuse place him in place where he will not pose danger to others and himself.

If no medical records exist, well we know the real cause of the out burst.
Sudden Jihad Syndrome. Often resulting from reading certain Books, Watching Al Jazeera, belief in the UN and constant denial of the holocaust.

Which can be treated with an all expensive paid trip to the Island of Cuba and an indefinite stay at Club Gitmo. Where one can sit in lazyboy and explain all their ills to DoD Special Representative. The other cure is lead poisoning administered through a double tap of 9MM or single 50 cal to the skull.

Now as to progressive Christians well if you go with Progressive being the ones with Socialist beliefs like Black Liberation theology, aka Rev Wright well yeah they would most likely scream that out. However they are not really Christians they are socialist and marxist who knew atheism is not as popular as they would like, so they use religion as facade to dupe people.
It works well on progressive intellectuals and those who feel they are oppressed by greedy racist capitalist.
Which why leaders of the movement retire rich and live in predominately white communities while followers "oppressed" flowers are no better off.

max:

Islam is merely a variation of the mental disorder of religious blind faith. Anyone who believes that some invisible omnipotent being favors them over another human based on professed belief in said being, is a lunatic.

Progressive Christianity gained government and ruled the Canadian province of Alberta for 36 years.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_Credit_Party_of_Alberta

For an historic example of a progressive Christian see C.S. Lewis.

"We all want progress. But progress means getting nearer to the place where you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turn, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. . .There is nothing progressive about being pigheaded and refusing to admit a mistake." C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

As to the question:
Is being a Muslim a mental disorder?
It should be remembered that most Muslims are Muslims because of an accident of birth and are not willing converts but also are not easy to convert away from Islam either because of the death sentence leaving Islam brings, or the fact that they will be ostracized from their family and community.
