List, always lists…
The highly offended
put you on their shit list
because King James
edited a book.
Please don’t preach at me
while screwing hypocrisy.
You have a whole list of fucks
to give about public bathrooms,
but not a tear for a lesbian
who died in Afghanistan
to protect your freedom of speech.
Oh, I know..You have another list
to put me on…vulgar tongue.
Sorry I can’t sing pretty while
you justify hate by cherry picking scripture
from a pulpit decorated with Trump.
You talk about persecution in the U.S.
because of your faith. Really?
Dine on homeless shelter soup
with a homosexual boy who calls
an alley home because his parents
camped out in Leviticus.
Yes I’m pissed. Hashtag me bitch…
Tweet the hell out of it until it
gets twitter marked trending.
People with compassion have open arms.
I am so tired of those who talk about
unconditional love with closed fists.

I am not throwing an entire religion under the bus. I know kind, loving Christians, but I have felt the claws of those who aren't.
