An Open Poem to Episcopal Bishop V.Gene Robinson

An Episcopal Bishop, says I,
Can have sex, if I wish, with a guy.
An act damned in the Bible -
Yet he claims he's not liable,
Thereby living his life in a lie.
Even worse, he would preach this to others,
To children, their fathers, their mothers.
Though God destroyed Sodom
From the top to the bottom
This lesson the bishop just smothers.
In claiming he knows what God meant
By the biblical words Heaven sent,
He dismisses Saints Paul
Peter, Jude, et al
While preaching his words of dissent.
May The Lord help this bishop recover
From his ill-fated choice of a lover.
May he give up that life
Reserved for man and wife
And help others the same truth discover.
Written in charity by Robert Quinn Glendale, New York
