[No, I haven’t gone all “Can’t we just stop judging and love one another?” But the body of Christ on earth IS (for better, I am sure, not worse) all busted up just now. And so I thought I’d share this short rhyme, which … basically just appeared in my head, exactly as written.]
“Love the sinner, hate the sin!” comes the call from the right;
“It’s no sin to be gay!” gets one into the fight.
“You’re picking and choosing! You disobey God!”
“Love neighbor as self! Your theology’s flawed!”
“You toss out the Bible! For that you will burn!”
“I study the Bible! It’s you who won’t learn!”
For now furies are spent, and everyone’s spoken,
On the field is left Jesus, his body all broken.
