The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Gay Priests
The Vatican canít fire gay priests and be left with two,
The seminaries half full of them so what can they do?
They donít trust women and wonít let them be ordained,
But your faith in the system has to be maintained.
And pedophiles have rights, you know, and canít be moved,
Maybe just to the next parish where they may improve,
The present status quo canít be changed; so there!
So be obedient like a monk and say a prayer.
Congregations should be sensitive about this matter,
Pedophile priests here and there is no need to scatter,
And donít you dare ask your confessor if he is gay,
And if he is; what will you do; should you walk away?
