The article presents the author's comments on the paper "Only Converge Where Religious Orthodoxy Is Abandoned." The author says that the article asserts that the only common ground of modern psychology and Christian dogma is that both deal with similar emotional conditions. But they deal with them quite differently. Religion and psychiatry can only converge where religious orthodoxy is abandoned and its sanctions repealed by psychological empiricism.
