Religious fervour can often cloud a deeper psychological condition, I suggest. Are we Hubbers sufficiently aware of this potential? In our fun/enjoyment of the argument, our desire to present our opinions and have them heard at least, but better if they are agreed with..... the person at the other end of the Internet web can be struggling with a personal need which is not being met. We can be unwittingly feeding a depressive state, but we have the luxury of being able to walk away oblivious of the part we have played in it. Would anyone with professional qualifications like to comment?

Very few of us 'see our psychological condition' Jewels. Indeed, we are it at the self-image level. The good advice I read somewhere is "Do not cherish opinions."
I cannot speak from any professional basis here, just a humanity concern that transcends religious concepts. Thank you for this thoughtful response.
Alan - Just like you, I don't claim any professional skills of interpreting the mentioned issues. Since you asked for a professional opinion, I am sorry if I unintentionally pretended to provide such answer. Just sharing my thoughts as always.
Very valid Sandi. Thanks.
Thank you Eric and Vlad (from the post following this).
I think you will have noticed my concern arising in a Question which stopped receiving Answers 2 days ago. (Not mentioning any names. Let's keep it sensitive and respectful.)
I am always pleased - an ego reaction no doubt - to the profundity which (not always, but fairly frequently) appears in both the questions and answers on Hub Pages. May it continue to help so many, for I'[m pretty sure it does.
