Well, yes. There's not really anything wrong with that as long as it doesn't masquerade as anything else. I'm not sure if it's so much about needing to reinforce your own beliefs as it is about just being pleasant to be reminded that you're not alone in your beliefs. I like knowing some people think a bit like me. Not because I need any kind of validation, but because it feels less lonely this way.

They have faith which is fundamentally irrational. They could have the best religion ever promoting nothing but love and compassion and actually live up to the ideals, with each follower being the epitome of what a human should be. And I'd still think they're all whackjobs.
