"Denial is a coping mechanism that gives you time to adjust to distressing situations — but staying in denial can interfere with treatment or your ability to tackle challenges. If you're in denial, you're trying to protect yourself by refusing to accept the truth about something that's happening in your life."

I realize I shouldn't be laughing at these seven tremendously sad and messed up people, but the absurdity of the situation and the conflict of their feelings and religious beliefs take the better of me. Sorry!
