Guess Who’s Coming To Worship - Poem by Joe Rosochacki

Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church Does not promote freewill at all,
It is hypocrisy, the ultimate irony, the most perplexing paradox of principles,
Their outlook on Christ's teachings were beyond reason, their reasoning quite small,
They are racists to boot, their reasoning isn't quite radical,
Take Hitler and KKK for example,
The Aryan Nation,
Take a look at 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner'.
Stella Harville and Ticha Chikuni weren't welcomed,
For inter-racial couples were frowned by church elders,
there could be no winner
The couple could not a get a membership no less a confirmation
To practice their form of worship
I wasn't aware that Christianity had an ethnic or color barrier
Christ was not a Christian nor Euro-American 'white'
As too often he is depicted in paintings or later in film
With a halo of light
Would Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church shun Him His doors
That promptly they would exult in adoration
What an evil group of hypocrites,
On their judgment day will plainly see,
Matthew 25: 40
New International Version (©1984)
'The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'
