I came searching for spirituality
And you fed me destructive doctrine.
I came seeking some answers
And you fed me legalistic jargon.
I came searching for purpose
And you fed me damaging theology.
I came looking for acceptance
And you fed me your mirror image.
I came with a sense of fairness for humankind
And you fed me discrimination against other denominations.
I came with human flaws and defects
And you fed me guilt for not being sinless.
I came seeking peace of mind
And you fed me rules and regulations.
I came with blindness for skin color
And you fed me prejudice for biracial marriages.
I came with love for all of humanity
And you fed me abhorrence for gays and lesbians.
I came with empathy for pregnant adolescents
And you fed me abstinence and anti-abortion abomination dogma.
I came with a heart for mercy
And you fed me injustice and intolerance.
I came looking for an empathic Jesus
And you fed me counterfeit religion.
I came looking for a pluralistic Jesus
And you fed me a white blue-eyed version of you.
I came seeking an unconditional God
And you fed me provisional salvation.
