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
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'
