No Pedophile Priests... Sept 24th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

Can we influence the Church so that they will change their ways?
Priests should be told to get married and do it without delay,
And women priests allowed to say mass and forgive mortal sins,
Stop wearing fancy colorful vestments and see who wins.




And where are the religious leaders that could bring this about?
Busy on a pulpit ensuring that death-with-dignity stays out,
And as a mere member; you can’t have an independent thought,
You may have to check with the Roman Curia and why not?





And without referendums; questions are never asked,
Pompous Roman preacher decisions that cannot be surpassed,
Which shows that the pious are in many ways, like a flock of sheep,
Just behave yourself and don’t question or think too deep.
