America Needs A New Religious Liberty Task Force*

by Mark Granier

Like it needs another baker refusing to bake
even one, irreligiously gay, cake.
Like it needs more religious liberty gravy.
Like it needs to launch a Religious Liberty Navy.
Like it needs an Attorney General keen to take action
against ‘cultural’ climate change (the planetary one being a distraction).
Like it needs religious cheerleaders to cover their religious knees.
Like it needs a pro-evangelical POTUS who’s the embodiment of sleaze.
Like it needs a Religious Liberty parade
rained on by golden showers of religious lemonade.
Like it needs another state turning religiously red.
Like it needs a religious hole in another religious head.
