Oh what a brave soul.
He’s proud to be straight, but like a host that feeds, bigotry inebriates.
No one’s ever been compromised for being a white, straight male with two blue eyes.
And thus, a declaration of unwavering pride walks hand in hand with Jesus, matching every stride.
Pew by pew and row on row, they’re taught to revere him.
But when they’re taught the wrath of God, they only learn to fear him.

And fear themselves, and fear they should.
And fear themselves, and fear they will (God is dead).
Fear the vengeance of a changing tide.
Fear the gap in your conscience that’s ten miles wide.
Until you’ve suffered persecution and defied misguided accusations, you’ve no right to your pride.

Those that are truly afraid are ashamed of their own urges.
