Are you asking whether such diagnoses would disqualify somebody from having a membership in the Church of Satan? Since you listed such a wide range of mental illnesses, I'd say it depends. For example, given the ever broadening range of what constitutes "ADHD" or "autism" these days, it's possible to be diagnosed with one of these while be far from, say, Rain Man. But if it's really that severe, then I'd suspect the person wouldn't be able to comprehend and adhere to the cohesive concepts of Satanism (or any other religion) in the first place and wouldn't be seeking it out.

If that was the case, then they'd probably not be able to properly submit the letter in the first place. smile
