The morality police….

The morality police wear many disguises

+

Over in Iran protestors

take to the streets,

the morality police have been exposed

as murderers,

the re-education of a young woman

ended in death….

re-education, because she wasn’t,

in their view

wearing her hijab, headscarf correctly…

the outcry is justified….

the protests continue…

+

here in the UK, the morality police

are also at work, disguised as the Church of England hierarchy

hiding behind rules,

show no compassion,

they ban a God-daughter,

an ordained God-daughter,

from taking her God-fathers funeral,

even though it was his wish…

why?

because she is married to a woman,

homophobia is exposed (again)

so they moved the service to a marquee,

there is no outcry,

there has been no murder,,

and the morality police are satisfied…

( pondering the death of Masha Ami, and the Church of England ban on Mpho Tutu Van Furth from leading her God Fathers funeral)

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and a grandson). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
