by Voddie Baucham from his sermon “Nebuchadnezzar Loses His Mind” as transcribed by R.L. Stollar from Homeschoolers Anonymous posted on his Facebook feed.
Didn’t Voddie say that you should never watch television? Sounds like he’s been watching a lot of “Law and Order: SVU” and listening to Dr. George Huang on SVU. This is some of the usual disgusting shaming of mental illness and those that suffer from it.
I don’t know about anyone else, but the people in my life that have struggled with mental health haven’t exactly been proud of that fact, no matter what people like Voddie say.
“Another reason that we’re psychologized — because of these drug commercials. [in mocking voice:] ‘Where does depression hurt? It hurts everywhere.’ K? We see these commercials and they come at us… Movies and television programs, dramas, police dramas, where the psychologist is the one who knows everything about the person who’s doing this crime. Why? Because if you’re a psychologist, you are all-knowing. ‘This person is probably this age, and he probably grew up like this, and he probably has the’ — all the while, you over here are looking at the other part of the movie that the cops are not seeing and what are you being told? The person with the psychology degree is god. And ‘destigmatization’? Far from there being a stigma anymore with mental illness… now we’re proud of our mental illnesses. We wear them like a badge.”
