Loyalty misplaced

Ironically some Protestant people say they believe the bible’s message of forgiveness. Many of those “men of God” find it hard to live out God’s mercy message…



Annual anarchy, typical Twelfth news,

very cracked-record, proud sectarian views,

shouting out at sinners, gospel-warped ire,

petrol-soaked pallet towers, Protestant pyres.


Why should Queen Elizabeth care

for loyalty misplaced in flags and fanfare?

Not grace-saving blood – just judgement thunder

of marching bands pulling province asunder.


O True Blue Unionists! All others are traitors

  • you show spite not spirit – who are the haters,

shouted red-faced spleen and bully-boy bluster?

Embattled and embittered, Calvinistic cluster.


Unbiblical, sinful – that sectarian sash,

pagan hatred spat, stoked petrol bombs smash:

murder and mayhem, only God can forgive,

His wheat and weeds wait for sickle and sieve.


“Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God;
once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” – 1 Peter 2:10
