Quoting the Bible

Have we lost it?

We’ve taken the rights of our own.

We’ve taken the rights of those

Who deserve them most.

Have you lost it?

They are sinners!

They’re too different

They do not deserve.

How could you be so dense?

They are women.

They are men.

They are human!

How could you be so blind?

The Bible itself says it is sin.

Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve!

It’s how the world was meant to be.

The Bible says!

Oh here we go.

Preach!

Tell me what the Lord says.

Don’t patronize me heathen!

Have you not read the word?

God frowns upon homosexuals!

If you read the Scripture, you would see!

God loves us all.

Isn’t that what you say?

Your churches believe they preach love,

But all they speak is hate.

But the Word says it.

In black and white the Word says it all.

It’s a sin!

It’s a disgrace!

God loves the sinner,

But hates the sin.

He is a forgiving God.

Isn’t that what you preach?

But the Scripture says—

Repeating yourself are you?

Your argument has become invalid.

Keep quoting the Bible if you please,

Remain a stagnant mind in an evolving society.
