Well they are certainly misled. Personally I would refrain from demeaning them, because they are demeaning their own selves. They’re basically saying “God damn me.” Which has to frustrate His love immensely; God would rather they be saved. So why should we damn them. It’s between God and them now.
I agree with you. I just refuse to call them “retarded” and am implying that their behavior is “reptile” in nature.
