No Big Deal

No Big Deal

Cardinal Cupich puts things in perspective.
Child molestation ain’t that big a deal.
It leaves a wound? Well, hurry up and heal!
Pope Francis guides our wonderful collective
In new directions, and is thus directive.
He tells us what to think and how to feel.
We ought to be submissive to his spiel.
If Christians fail in that, then they’re defective.
As for these so-called crimes, this rabbit hole,
The pope and cardinal can only shrug.
Boys will be boys. The urges of the soul
Will lead to acts more forceful than a hug.
With kids the Church may fleetingly condole.
The issue is an unimportant bug.

–Tom Riley
