A sincere credulous belief in religion may be the single best stress-reducer possible. Whenever something bad is happening in your life, you can turn to your religion as a sure-fire placebo to make those worry symptoms vanish! Yes that’s right, folks, step right up, and we’ll cure what ails you.
Something bad about to happen? No worries, God loves you and he’ll make everything okay! Just swallow this.
All that praying didn’t stop that tragedy from ruining your day? Don’t worry—this life-altering excruciating experience is just a small step in God’s greater plan! You’ll look back on this and be glad that God gave you this experience someday! Now take this, talk to yourself for a while with your hands pressed together, gaze tearfully at the sky, and pray that everything ends up okay. It’ll be all over soon, and then your infinity of bliss awaits! And remember—if anything else happens to you, it’s probably just a sign that you don’t love God enough (because you’re a terrible sinner who deserves eternal torment).
That’s enough troubles for today; have some levity!
