I will agree with the statement if the belief is grounded in some logic or any real reason. But when it is due to a strongly held position where contradictory facts are ignored, then it is no longer that way.

"It's not a lie if you believe it"
It sounds profound, but it isn't..
If something is a lie it remains a lie, no matter the number of people who believe it.
I'll split hairs on this. It remains a "lie" but the person saying it isn't lying. In that case error/mistake might be more accurate.

hes a comedian and it funny only if you dont take it seriously , remember you live in a nation that worships stupidity, and is proud to be ignorant, and considers intellect gay, which it is, gay people are actually on average much smarter and more talented than straight people, its that extra bone we have in our wrists

A liar tells lies, even if the liar believes the lies.

Think of the all-purpose Hitler comparison.

I'm rather sure Hitler believed his lies.
