An Immoral Choice – v2

The mirror before us
the filter of Christ
His life before us
in this season of Lent

The choices He made
to become the sacrifice
to give His life
that we may have life

How do we compare
in the choices we are making
in what we choose to fund
who we lift up
and who are left behind

An immoral choice
to be greedy, stingy
to leave our neighbors
out in the cold

An Immoral Choice
written at House of Purpose Coffeehouse
Hillsboro, NH
March 11, 2011
and finished
at Pembroke Town Meeting,
Pembroke, NH
calling on the NH Legislature
and the Governor
to spare those without a voice
those who need us
from the severe budget cuts
that are currently planned
in HB1 and HB2, etc.
in part based on the testimony
of The Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson,
Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire
