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…


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 2 lovely grandsons). 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! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
