This concerted attempt to justify bigotry against atheists and atheism would be concerning were it not so hilariously pathetic.
Consider the fact that 4 of the 5-star reviewers here have two interesting things in common-- one, they have all similarly misspelled the word "psychology":
"There is really nothing new to this work. We have been doing the pscyhology of religion for two centuries." -- From the review Nothing New by Gene Hoch
"This book is simply the continuation of a long list of works on the pscyhology of atheism. There is no doubt that atheism is under attack." -- From the review by Stephen G. Sabo Jr. "Valerie Sinclare"
"This book is a well written, fully footnoted, truly academic work. As a professional in the field I am pleased to see a summary of the pscyhology of atheism (and/or) secularism in such a concisely written work. A must read for all academics." -- from the review by Frances Deseno
"This book is well footnoted and only cites world renowned academic scholars in their particular fields. Just as the pschology of religion was an area of study in the past century, the new century is marked with the advent of the pscyology of atheism." -- From the review by J. Pasquini
The last one of them even appears that it could be from a family member if not the good Fr. Pasquini himself.
The other thing they have in common is that as of this writing, they all have reviewed ONLY books by Fr. John J. Pasquini.
It looks more than a little bit like a desperate attempt to shore up the reviews on his books from a few shill accounts. Just how distorted and craven a mindset does it take to resort to that?
Let us hope that Fr. Pasquini had nothing to do with all this, and is as he presents himself, an honest, truth-loving and God-fearing priest.
But just suppose this book had a different focus: "Buddhist Personality Disorder: Addressing a Distorted Mindset." In fact, some have said that since Buddhism has no deity, that it could be said to be atheistic. Or how should we react to a book on: "Hindu Personality Disorder: Addressing a Distorted Mindset." Or perhaps, "Unitarian Personality Disorder: Addressing a Distorted Mindset." Would not many of the same arguments that can be found in this book apply in these as well? But atheists are an easy target because they don't have quite the collectivist mindsets the religions do, they don't all get together once a week to confer on atheism and their role in the community. Atheists are much less likely to complain to the degree other religious would if they were similarly "addressed." Then again, there's undoubtedly a book or two out there that targets christianity as psychologically disordered as well, making equally demented attempts to gain points for convoluted arguments.
And it's odd as well, since most of the fathers of psychology are not known for their particularly religious positions-- Freud wrote that "religion is an illusion," and Jung considered Christianity to be a "collective mythology." Yet there have been some attempts of late to produce a "christian psychology," perhaps this is just another feeble stab in that direction.
Oh well, 2-stars, as it's good for some comic relief.
