I have had people tell me they were Jesus, I have never wanted any of them committed. Neither did I think they were Jesus. I hav sen a few of them physically removed from the churches they were end, and threatened with arrest if they returned. I wept. I think that you equate having someone committed with a terrible occurrence. It doesn't have to be. Whatever steps can be taken to give them the help they need to live a full and healthy life. I would weep, too, because they were not being given compassion and were being punished rather than being offered the help they truly needed. The form of someone's delusions are only important when they present a danger to them or those around them. They are simply victims of a mental illness. By the way, this is the same treatment I advocate for someone who believes they are Jesus, Scooby Doo, or a ham sandwich.
