Fear, Guilt, and Shame: Psychological Abuses in Fundamentalist Religion. The Mindshift Podcast with Dr. Clint Heacock: “Religion is ultimately disempowering, claims Andrew, because you are taking the word of another person–an authority figure–not only to diagnose your spiritual problems, but also to provide the solution.
