A RELIGIOUS NIGHTMARE... MAR 25TH,2013
A RELIGIOUS NIGHTMARE … Mar 25th,2013
Were the pedophile priests excommunicated or did they move?
To another distant parish and the hierarchy all approved?
To continue their crimes on any children they could find?
Are there any normal priests left or are they confined?
Is this a crime story, an illusion or a nightmare?
Should we all huddle in a corner quietly and say a prayer?
Did this scandal really happen or is it just a story?
Where were all those bishops in their vestments and their glory?
Are the churches still full of the faithful, praying and singing hymns?
Just waiting to go to confession and confess all their sins?
Am I the only one who lost the faith along the way?
Should I add the reason to my computer cache?
