    Reminds me of Groucho Marx and what he said about not wanting to be part of a club that would have him as a member.

    All God’s Children

    All people are God’s
    Beloved children
    If they are gay
    They may not to be straightened
    Any more than my straight-ness
    Can by choice be “bent”
    What gives me the right
    To treat another’s sexuality
    As if it is contagious?
    Yet on this whole issue
    Many Christians are judgementally…
    Not silent

    If I decide the sexuality
    Of another is sinful
    Am I usurping God’s role?
    For judgement is His
    Jesus brought much good news
    On love, sin, and grace
    Yet on sexuality
    The gospels are strangely…

    Some churches proclaim
    The sexuality of others
    As sinful
    Yet Jesus instructs us
    To love one another,
    And cherish children –
    As they are closest to God’s kingdom
    Yet on child abuse
    Many churches are strangely…
