cursory nursery rhymes

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 11, 2005

Repeat after me:

This is the law that God built.

This is the Church that taught the law that God built.

This is the boy that served the Church that taught the law that God built.

This is the priest that boffed the boy that served the Church that taught the law that God built.

This is the dean, indicted for porn, that shifted the priest that boffed the boy that served the Church that taught the law that God built.

This is the mom, betrayed and forlorn, that complained to the dean, indicted for porn, that shifted the priest that boffed the boy that served the Church that taught the law that God built.

This is the bishop, shaven and shorn, that lied to the mom, betrayed and forlorn, that complained to the dean, indicted for porn, that shifted the priest that boffed the boy that served the Church that taught the law that God built.

And this, boys and girls, is a stunt by which a man who rejoices in the sexual appetites of bad bishop, bad dean, and bad priest, will distribute condoms before Mass outside the Philadelphia cathedral to protest the Church's response to pedophilia. Why condoms, you ask? To trap the germ the kills the cell that guards the health that powers the poofs that hate the Church that taught the law that God built.

But the law, obeyed, makes the germ inconsequent and keeps the acolytes safe. Can't help but think our man's got a problem there somewhere.

    Inspired, Diogenes. Ere I read this and "On Jordan's Bank," I had no idea what a lyricist/poet you were. As Walt Whitman said, (alas, about himself), "Finally! A bard!"

    I hear the sound of a tree falling and a beaver slowly turning his head as a shadow darkens the sky above his head, hinder yon. I sense a meeting of the minds and the counting of rings.

    The "Law" is not meant "for the good," Diogenes... Its purpose is to restrain evildoers... To the extent that each one of us is an "evildoer" the Law exposes our sin and helps to keep us from self-destructing... In this Season, we look NOT for the "Law" but to the coming of "the merciful Christ" to heal us... Dwelling too much on the sins of others CAN be hazardous to one's health... Be careful... JP
