"Overreligioussness has been considered by some psychiatrists to be a 
form of obssessive-compulsive disorder often successfully treated by 
prozac or another SSRI."

How much religiousness is overreligioussness (sic)?  Hyperreligiosity,
whatever that is, is also regarded as symptomatic of the "temporal lobe
personality" of Bear and Fedio.  

In any event, one would certainly expect any emotionally significant
belief/memory system to have some sort of representation in the temporal
lobes.  That's not terribly exciting, is it?
