Foolish Lord...

Foolish Lord... it's quite foolish of you, isn't it, to keep on loving people like us, people who've made such a fool of you by being everything you are not. We've killed our friends, our enemies, and ourselves all in the name of the one who said, "love your enemies" and "if you live by the sword, you'll die by the sword." We've ridiculed and subjugated women, and gays, and every kind of minority in the name of the one in whom there is now no male or female, slave or free. For this we are not deserving of forgiveness, yet foolishly we ask for it, and recklessly, you offer it to us. Thank you God. In you we are truly free. Amen.
