The Man in the Mirror?

judah's narcissistic narcissism email
So I get this email the other day from "judah22". Its one of the rare ones that I get from homosexual activists which isn't laced with sexual profanity and sexual threats. Which, BTW tells you where there minds really are. But that's another post for another time. "judah22" wrote to tell me that I was a narcissicist and along with me, listed other "narcissistic" groups as part of a consortium of "hateful evangelical christians". Even though he said I would "dismiss" it, I told him I would reply to it on the blog. Have a read:

"The lord said that false prophets would come and lead the sheep astray and you would know them by the results of their labors. What are the results of your labors and people like you. Matthew Sheppard, Danny Overstreet, Billy Jack Gaither, Gwen Aroujo Brandon Teena, and all others who have been killed or maimed because of hateful rhetoric from people like you. I know you probably will dismiss this e-maill[sic] because you somehow believe you are saved in heaven, but let me tell you this us glbt people would rather spend an eternity in hell with all our friends and family, than even one moment in heaven with haters like you and the AFA, CWFA , FOTF, FRC, SBC and other hateful evangelical christians. I would prefer my friends to you any day. Oh and If you really want to know one of the characteristics of a narcissist is that they are very religious so basically all people of faith are narcissists."
Three points I want to address in judah22's email:
First, "judah22" recites a sort hybrid form of scripture to fit his accusation against me and others who oppose homosexuality.
Here's what Christ actually said: "For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect,if that were possible." Matthew 13:22
These false christs and prophets will appear and perform "signs and miracles". I wouldn't think that "murder" is hardly a sign or a miracle directly connected to narcicissim. And not one of the killers of the aforementioned people were Christians in any sense of the word nor has it been shown that they ingested a steady diet of anything by me or the groups listed. For example look at the case of Danny Overstreet. And I don't think that you have a good foundational understanding of scripture. You may need to work on that some more.

Secondly, judah22 you say that homosexuals would rather spend an eternity in hell than be in heaven one moment with Christians. Wow, thats a ton of hate! Out of your own mouth, you may have sealed your fate with those words unless you change them. Hopefully, you're not speaking for all homosexuals or your friends and family.

Finally, there's this definition of narcissism you've stated. You claim its characteristic of "very religious" people. Perhaps, but then again it could be a trait of people in general, despite one's religion or lack thereof, which in that case would include yourself and most of the homosexuals you said wanted to spend eternity in hell. Just a hypothesis, ok? You cite nothing to support your claim nor do you define what "very religious" means. So the whole thing could orbit into a hypothetical stratosphere forever. However, like the hybrid scripture, it appears to be something of your own invention, crafted to fit your perfunctionary accusations. Now, according to most in the psychiatric field, narcissism is a pattern of traits and behaviours which signify infatuation and obsession with one's self to the exclusion of all others and the egotistic and ruthless pursuit of one's gratification, dominance and ambition.

Although it says nothing about being very religious, there's more on narcissim here.
