What is spiritual abuse? What distinguishes “spiritual” abuse from regular forms of physical, emotional, and mental abuse?

In spiritual abuse, a person’s faith and ideas about God, the supernatural, and the afterlife, get intermingled and entwined with relational and behavioral choices so that the situation is not only about the way a person thinks, acts, and relates – it is primarily about the condition of your soul.

So did mine, a dogmatic Catholic. IMO, true religion is the 
experience-based relationship established by a believer with a Supreme Being and has nothing to do with religious dogma.

We'll be discussing this whole weird phenomenon of godless folk who enjoy stories about Elder Gods. Why are you into Cthulhu? Why do you think there's such an audience for it? What is this strange pseudo-religion anyway? How does it relate to freethought, if at all?
This Hangout On Air is hosted by PZ Myers. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Did you find any other crazed atheists also walking out in those inhuman conditions? At least in Milwaukee we only have to deal with 15 below.

Spiritual Abuse is when one party convinces another that a set of approximations and botheration about discomforts are laws that must be followed, especially when they have no real meaning, provide no real benefit, and are meant to make a person uneasy, uncomfortable, and stressed.

Sorry. I turn off the electricity at sundown so the evil minions can't ride in on the electrons. Gotta renew the garlic on the window sills now. It's getting stale.

It is beside the point, but my inner pedant keeps kicking me in the brain and shouting 'Cthulhu was the priest, not the god!'. Hopefully posting this will make it stop!

+Hank Probert: "Look, if you're really not a scenery-chewing misogynist git DK, try to differentiate yourself from them a little."
"Bottom line: if you hate being labelled a duck, don't quack. "
"All it does is make people think you're yet another tiresome hater regurgitating the same old shit."
"Your attempt at trolling has been noted and dismissed."

— You're embarrassing yourself.

+DialecticKaos: "trying to turn it into feminism and social justice bullshit which doesn't belong."

– You can include here secular humanism, spirituality, transcendentalism, the rights of the future generations, the needs of the human species, collectivism. Fortunately, not all atheists (assuming that those who call themselves "new atheists" are atheists at all) aren't buying this crap.
