“The bible is very clear concerning psychics and mediums. Also, when you die, you move on to a different life and DO NOT interact with this world after you leave it unless you decide to return to learn. Try reading the bible instead of scamming people you cunt.”
Yeah. I just got that not five minutes ago. I thought it was appropriate to use the picture of myself as the devil from Halloween many years ago. My feelings would be hurt if it wasn’t blatantly hypocritical and hilarious that someone told me to read the Bible and called me a cunt in the same breath. I get emails like this a lot. Sometimes they’re anonymous. Sometimes not. Most of the people claiming to want me to save my soul, read the Bible, etc., are the ones who use the most abusive language. Being called a cunt is just the tip of the iceberg. In the beginning, these emails used to bother me a lot but over a few years, I realized these are the extremists out there. They don’t represent the goodness in the Christian and Catholic communities that I have come to know through people who love me and accept me for all that I am. Such people who abuse others for having different beliefs are not embracing the true teachings of Christianity. One thing I have always wondered about these people is why are they on my website if they don’t agree with its content? Why waste their time?
I posted this example of hate mail because I know many psychics and mediums who have romantic ideas about doing this kind of work in a public way. Think long and hard about what you want to do with your gifts. There are always going to be extremists out there calling you names like fraud, asshole, bitch, devil worshiper, and cunt, among a myriad of other colorful names. If you can’t become tough, grow thick skin and let these extremists roll off your backs, you might want to reconsider doing this work in a public way. It takes a very strong human being to go against commonly accepted beliefs and stand tall in who you are no matter how many stones are thrown at you. These people can’t be avoided. Letting their venom poison your opinion of yourself can be avoided, however.
By the way, I have read the Bible cover to cover – the children’s version when I was 8 and the King James version when I was 18. I was also a regular at Mass for the majority of my youth. I’m probably more well-versed in different religious teachings than most of these extremists. My advice to everyone is to read everything from every religion and join discussions with different faiths rather than attacking and throwing around insults.
