Raped by Jesus (Warning:Graphic text)
FreakMeow
A few months ago I came across this poem and it really says a lot about what goes on in religion.


Raped by Jesus
By: Azaroth

I lie sprawled on the stairs
Behind the towering church steeple.
Its long, gray shadow
Hides me from the people.
My flowing white dress
Is bunched at my knees.
Bloody lips between my legs
And torn, white blood-stained panties.

I confessed to my Father,
"I think I have sinned."
He said to me,
"My child, tell me what you did."
"I have found pleasure and seen the lies of Your teachings.
You've put You on a shelf,
But now I've thrown You off
And begun to think for myself."

He said unto me,
"My daughter, you're right--that's a sin.
I think you are lost,
And I'll help guide you back in."
"But I've seen who You are,
And I don't want to be like You."
He simply said to me,
"I'm sorry. That's not something you can choose."

"But, Father," I questioned,
"How can that be wrong?
It's been Your unchanging way
For far too long."
"It just isn't right
Because I believe He says it's so."
"But what if You're mistaken?
How can You...You can't really know."

"Father," I pleaded,
"I just cannot trust You.
What if I no longer have faith in Him?"
"You must! I will make you."
"What are You doing?"
"I'm making you believe
In the power of the Lord, my child."
"Please, let go of me!"

"This is your retribution.
This is how God wants it."
"NO! Stop it, you son of a bitch!"
"Just relax. It will be over in a minute.
Please, settle down, my child.
Please do not yell.
Church is a quiet place,
Safe from Satan's Hell."

"God dammit! SOMEBODY HELP ME!"
"The Lord's good, dear, sweet name should never be taken in vain,
For if it is, my child,
It will cause you nothing but great pain.
I hope through this
You'll see today,
That the Lord gets angry
When you don't obey."

I could not fight his aggression
As Jesus looked on and watched over us
With his arms outstretched
On his stained wooden cross.
I managed to crawl outside
But collapsed on the steps.
I fell to the concrete with my arms outstretched.
With little remaining visceral strength, I wept.

So now I lie sprawled on the stairs
Behind the towering church steeple.
Its long, gray shadow
Hides me from the people.
My flowing white dress
Is bunched at my knees.
Bloody lips between my legs
And torn, white blood-stained panties.

Here is the website I found this poem on.

Disturbing metaphor but a great way to describe the way religion pretends authority and piety while taking away innocence, dignity and self esteem.

The poem disturbed me. It seems like the author was really raped. May not have been, but the emotional impact played out that way for me.

Dark is an understatement. Rather on the graphic side, all right.
