A Poem

It’s strange, really
being part of a class
that a famous priest claims
has no moral legitimacy

No reason for existing aside from sexual deviancy
or mental illness he says
nor reason for me existing at all
except in mortal sin

God weeps for you he says
and your lifestyle
as a good Catholic and a priest for the Lord
I must tell you you are a sinner and blasphemer and are going to hell

Says the priest
not knowing
of my lifestyle

or my works 

or of my love for God 
and my fellow person
and John 3:16
and God Is Love

It is really strange
being a person 
condemned by a priest
as a sinner and blasphemer

I know
I'm not the first

  1. It would not surprise Jesus, who knew all about the priests and scribes and Pharisees. And Jesus is still the head of the Church.
