For another great example of systemic narcissism at St. Dysfunction, here’s a wonderful email between Jean Reed and Bob Malm, in which the Jesus-babble is mixed thoroughly with the discussions of mental illness.
As always, there’s no concern for anyone else. Nothing at all Christlike about the attitude, even when, as here, it’s mixed with Jesus-babble. Nor does Jean understand the meaning of the word “slander,” as he casually tosses it in with the whole, “servants of Christ” nonsense.
And while Jean is quick to send his opinion off to Jeff “Sugarland” Chiow and Bishop Shannon, nowhere have I seen any sign that he’s ever made an effort at healing or reconciliation. All of which is a little curious for an avowed “servant of Christ.”
