We have no right to play God; it is He and He alone who has the prerogative to give and take life. Yes, the death of a child brings great good to that child. That’s why we are comforted at funerals of children. But there’s nothing in my moral theory that implies that we should bring about this great good (I’m not a utilitarian!). In fact, my moral theory entails that we have a moral duty not to take the life of a child or of any innocent person. God has forbidden us doing so, and anyone who presumes to do so commits a great evil. This is right in line with the teaching of the New Testament, as well as the Old.

it can easily be deduced that William J. Murray was exposed to extremism, a radical transformation from not only what is natural in the human development, but from the reality of the social norms which surrounded him.
After some time and with independence he searched for the truth and found it.
So no it is not a Mental PROBLEM...
(And I disagree...Ideology IS a mental disorder since it is the very essence of brain damage)
While the videos are very valid, he was not ONLY talking about religious browbeating, but ANY Adverse Child Experience.
They will never admit that.
Since they ALL rewire the brain and almost exclusively for the worse so I say brain damage since it alters a humans thinking from it's normal state to something abnormal.
