Has it come to this?


I suppose democracy must be to blame

giving people choice in matters fore-ordained

presuming to choose Gods leaders for Him,

uninformed masses choosing calculated deceit,

guiding our lives by standards more pleasing

than Gods to those who have the greatest voice

desiring freedom and recognition of the “oppressed”

we are cast from our mooring

adrift upon a sea of deceptive calm

nature abhors a vacuum and democracy a guide

other than its own, where God is banished

eventually all aberrant voices will have their say

making their way of rebellion the norm

all voices have speech yet adhering to none

in a realm where no word is law

any word may become law

escaping Gods good rule

we are subject to the tyranny of man

and without voice to re-consider



Based in part on the recent discussions

within the Anglican Church on the “matter”

of the ordination of homosexual leaders. It is

unbelievable that such a stage is acknowledged.

Would that Gods law be that upon which mans

was based. How can any doubt exist about Gods

condemnation of homosexual behaviour?
