A Purpose Driven Sonnet

The Rev’rend Doctor Warren, seems to me
would like to have his cake and eat it too
regarding homosexuality.
Alas, his fork-ed tongue is nothing new.
“Let me be clear what God’s own Word intends:
that sex outside of marriage is a sin.”
And marriage as a union he defends:
no other than a man and woman, kin.
But killing gays perhaps does go astray;
let’s not forget what Jesus did command:
that dignity for all be his new Way,
upon that rock the church must take a stand.
Um, Rick? My sexuality is ME.
Shut UP already ‘bout my dignity.


edited to add: This is my second submission to Shannon's InSoWriMo (International Sonnet Writing Month) challenge.
