I am not a bigot

never have been, never will be

one to deride my neighbour

for behaviour un-condoned

from my lofty perch

 

I too have failings

all too plain to see

I cannot treat you with less love

than I myself require

I have also sinned

falling short of the glory of God

and He has saved me

 

but!

 

regardless of our law

in support of 'basic human rights'

I do reserve the right

to decry your lifestyle as an error

and a moral abomination before the Lord

and pray for your salvation

 

it is not you I hate

it is what you do

 


 

They (federal gov't) passed a law last night

giving 'equal rights' to open homosexuals.

Yet another restriction on the freedom

I have to practice my religion.

 

Now they can call evangelism 'bigotry'
