Torquemada Lay Down Your Burning Effigy
Torquemada, lay down your burning effigy lest you scorch the Earth.
Quell your fanatical enthusiasm for shaking your fist, and proclaiming-
repent, you are all off Gods Christmas list.
Torquemada, release the poets and the artists to their work.
Or rip out eloquent tongues, and chop off long fingered hands,
and let them be silent monks.
Torquemada, will you forgo the new inquisition, so that you may-
stamp out the insecurities of faith, with courage, passion and hope.
Or issue you proclamation of waste.
I used Poor old Torquemada as an analogy to make my point.
What I'm trying to say here is that faith, no matter your believe should be rock solid.
No matter what people say about your religion, it is only ever said through lack of knowledge.
But asking question of faith can only serve to strengthen it.
