When did; to question the church... become seen as an affront to faith and a direct attack on God’s Grace?

Shame on You...

The preacher called out; leaving not a shadow of doubt.
Banging his fist against the bible; as if to drown out his holy rival.
Looking for sin among his flock; he is in for such a rude shock.
Paedophile priests; teaching Sunday school.
Philanderers; spruiking about family values.
Televangelists and syndicated religions; putting a price on faith.
The demons are slipping in through the back door; but are they the ones wearing black and white...

Shame on You...
When does; a priest’s touch turn to something more than just a guiding hand... to lewd conduct, molestation, to paedophilia.
When does; hush money drawn from the bottom draw become a disgrace... as the offender is quietly slipped out the side door only to offend once more.
When does; leaving issues languishing at the church’s front door become sacrificing what is right... Instead of defending an establishment.
When did; God go up for sale... where a credit card buys the key to paradise.
When did; to question the church... become seen as an affront to faith and a direct attack on God’s Grace?

Now what is truly the disgrace...
