Discussion of politics and religion is taboo? Sure it is.

Image result for politics and religion

Peaceful people reluctant to quarrel
with neighbors or co-workers
about faith and politics
hide, afraid – until the day comes
when moderates,
liberals, and non-Christians
meet consequences
intolerably unpleasant.

Speak out as you are able.
Oppose a conspiracy
against people of faith
by preachers
who want to protect
all people of all faith
by whining about judges
marriage and women’s rights.

Unpleasant consequences
portrayed through emotion,
imagined senses of offended-ness,
and indignation
fueled by cynics
and rash pretenses
of outrage.
