Not In God's Name - Poem by Paula Puddephatt

Protestant, Catholic, Mormon, Jew –
I understand your point of view.
If you can’t mine – well, that’s a shame.
No “holy” war is in God’s name.

Islam means “peace”. We all want that.
Meet the Quakers. Be friends and chat.
Buddhist, Hindu – we’re all the same.
No “holy” war is in God’s name.

Jehovah’s Witness to a Sikh:
Sisters and brothers, let us speak.
It’s not a case of placing blame.
No “holy” war is in God’s name.

“An ye harm none, do as ye will.”
The Wiccan Rede, we must fulfill.
Let peace on Earth become our aim.
No “holy” war is in God’s name.
