Repeat-With Regret

In 2004 I wrote a poem titled “The Wall” after the church trial of Beth Stroud. And here we go again. In April the United Methodist Church has scheduled another trial for Amy DeLong.

Both women, both ordained in the United Methodist Church, have committed themselves to love – the love of another woman. And Amy performed a ceremony of commitment for two other women. For this she has been charged and will be brought to a church trial.

I become weary of arguing about the places in the Bible that theoretically condemn same-sex relationships of either men or women. I wonder why those opposed don’t see the similarities between this and the issues of race and ordination of women. In those situations too, scripture was picked out to support exclusion. And now again.

It is ironic to me that it’s not the sexual orientation that is wrong—it is the exclusion and judgment that is wrong.

And check out my poem “The Wall.”
