When Beauty Becomes the Beast: Scrupulosity

Many people suffer from scrupulosity, which is a form of Obessive Compulsive Disorder that turns religion into an unhealthy obsession. Scrupulosity transforms what can be a beautiful religious practice into an ugly, scary situation.

This webpage: is a lovely resource that details scrupulosity in a concise and informative way. It covers all the bases clearly and accurately. I suggest reading it if you feel religion has become scary for you or a loved one. Religion should be a healing, peaceful experience, not one filled with doubt, obsession, or fear.
