The latest Slacktivist post has to do with rumors spread by people who need someone to be against, but it sounds more fundamental a notion to me. In fact, I can see the signs in every brand of theism. Call me a foolish atheist, but at least try this on for size:

"Are you afraid you might be a coward? Join us in pretending to believe this lie and you can pretend to feel brave. Are you afraid that your life is meaningless? Join us in pretending to believe this lie and you can pretend your life has purpose. Are you afraid you're mired in mediocrity? Join us in pretending to believe this lie and you can pretend to feel exceptional. Are you worried that you won't be able to forget that you're just pretending and that all those good feelings will thus seem hollow and empty? Join us and we will pretend it's true for you if you will pretend it's true for us. We need each other."
