I'm sure this will piss someone off no matter how it's phrased, so rather than spend a half hour trying to sugar coat it, I'll just put it out there:
Why do we excuse behavior by a religious person that we would otherwise call insanity if religion wasn't involved? Why is it rejecting reality is considered an illness, unless the rejection involves a piece of religious dogma?
I'm not talking about philosophical issues, but ones for which there are cold, hard facts, such as the fact that marriage existed in every culture on earth long before the Bible existed to tell people what it was. Or the fact that the fossil records and basic math prove dinosaurs and people did not exist on earth at the same time. These aren't matters of faith, they are issues of proof. If someone insists George Washington didn't exist and US history is all a lie, they'd be medicated. Why a free pass if something biblical is added to that sentence?

Actually, they are listed in the DSM
A person with a God Complex is labeled as narcissistic
It may just be semantics, but they are listed as mental disorders
(sorry- not going to research the slew of synonyms)
