Limericks VI - Religion

Limericks VI - Religion Pell-Mell for Hell Mel by Michael R. Burch There once was a Baptist named Mel who condemned all non-Christians to hell. When he stood before God he felt like a clod to discover His Love couldn’t fail! ### Why I Left the Religious Right by Michael R. Burch He's got Jesus's name on a wallet insert and "Hell is for Queers" on the back of his shirt and he upholds the Law, for grace has a flaw: the Church must have someone to drag through the dirt. ### Hell to Pay by Michael R. Burch A messiah named Jesus, returning from heaven, found planet Earth burning with children unfed, so he suggested: “Instead of war, why not consider cheek-turning?” Indignant right-wingers retorted: “Sir, your pacifist views are distorted! Just pull the plug quickly on someone who’s sickly! Our pursuit of war can’t be aborted!” ### The Heimlich Limerick by Michael R. Burch for T. M. The sanest of poets once wrote: "Friend, why be a sheep or a goat? Why follow the leader or be a blind breeder?" But almost no one took note.
