Religious paranoia is a condition which has been compared to extremism and intolerance. It has been cited as a possible contributor to political violence. It is often related to splitting, psychological projection, a desire to maintain a sense of purity in situations of real or perceived persecution, and rigid and unchallengeable attitudes.
