Christianity: An Acrostic
By Heidi Stephenson

Catholic countries in particular,
Have a tendency towards immense cruelty;
Royally abusing God’s creatures in fiestas and bull-fights,
In the false, Pauline-inspired ‘belief’ -
Satanic in its wicked foundations -
That only Man is beloved and ‘Chosen;’
Ignorantly presuming,
Arrogantly propounding
Nihilistic, deathly predilections, as ‘divine’ in origin.
In the End, when God restores the earth,
The truth will finally be known.
Yokes will be broken, and humans made to pay.
