It is unfortunate that we see religion developing alliances with bio-psychiatry. In the past children in Catholic schools were often tormented by the 'nun with the ruler'. Today, we find that the Catholic Church often operates youth 'treatment' facilities where the nun with the ruler is now replaced by the power of the psychiatrist with his drugs. These programs are not about helping young people find meaning, the objective is to be for the profit of the psychiatrists and the religious institution itself. I am personally aware of many abuses that occur in such facilities however the Church will often gloat about what a wonderful contribution they are making to helping the 'poor, troubled' children.

There is some intimate relationship between religion and modern medicine, especially psychiatry. This probably should not surprise us, but, for myself, I do not understand what is going on: only that it is evil.

Anyway congrats to Dr Edmunds.
