DeathChoice VaticanVoice

Dear Bishop Michael Cote, Doctor of Divinity
through pre-historic untold ages
through reborn renaissance stages
through industriously energetic praises
through enlightenment phases
through empowerment dysphasia

Some of us lesser health care practitioners,
good faith social workers,
teachers,
parents and grandparents,
uncles and aunts,
and ecofeminist inter-religious allies
of LGBTQ souls

Working with, not judging against,
supporting, not hate-crime creating,
helping up, not knocking down,
faithful to God’s multicultural
polyculturally robust EarthCreation,

Are hoping you will let the Vatican know
we can no longer support Roman Catholic
xenophobic
homophobic
sexphobic
non-elite caste-phobic dogma
traditions of elitist patriarchal apartheid.

We can no longer support Vatican Teachers
Preachers
WitchDoctors
Superstitious Fear and AngerMongers,
Western-Roman White Male Supremacists,
financially or emotionally,
naturally or spiritually,
ecologically or theologically.

Our LGBTQ sacred experience
of healthy LifeCulture wealth
does not classify same gender erotic feelings
and other mutually collaborative eco-political actions
as Sin,

As absence of robust virtue,

As missing the mark of multicultural communion,
regenerative Creation’s healthiest fertile wealth.

We further hope you might enlighten us,
especially those of us already among Rome’s
faithful sanctified,
Those already recognized throughout church history
as essential GodSent saints,
bishops,
archbishops,
deacons,
cardinals,
popes,
crusaders,
missionaries,
monastics,
celibates,
contemplatives,
mystics,
moral ethicists,
church attorneys,
ecclesial accountants,
sacred property administrators,
liturgical planners,
collegiate through preschool teachers,
priests who are
and have been
and will be born
and have been born again
in living lesbian waters
gay flowers
bisexual plants
queer pansexuality
transgender
polygender non-binary,

Each with a unique
GodCreated narrative
that includes no more or less sexual orientation choice
than does your own story,
presumably 100% heterosexual nonchoice,
inherited,
gifted,
graced.

Why is minority,
non-elite,
suffering servant status
not part of the VaticanTeaching
healthy GodCreation story?

Why is unconscious desire
to defy valued heterosexual norms
by masking deeply subconscious
economic and political suicide choices
a pre-pubescent sinful development
at a time of relentlessly rooted
economic health and political safety choices
essential to your own
absence of non-heterosexual spiritual
natural experience?

Why are conscious grace-filled fruits
of honest
transparent
vulnerable
integral
compassionate
loving desire for multiculturally healthy EarthCommunion
not among
your taught synonyms
for divine blessing of poor in spirit
disenfranchised by aggressive patriarchal nature
disempowered in ecological
system-balancing knowledge
unenlightened about systemic theological
hierarchical
monocultural

Is less co-operatively holistic
than inter-faith re-ligioning
reconnections,
polycultural holy communions,

Not so red Roman patriarchal
celebrating green humane/divine matriarchal
lilies of the fields
meadows
green pastures,
integrity of LifeCulture’s natural/spiritual potential

To transmogrify organic elements
of our passion
power
light
as God’s true and beautiful
humane/divine
multiculturally pleasing
Saints

And monoculturing sinners, all,
but not through lack of discipling Earth’s HealthIntegrity
by having chosen
to become non-heterosexually erotic,
exotic,
non-normative,

Nor having ever chosen to non-elite risk
in exchange
for health/wealth heterosexual reproductive
eco-political hegemony

StraightWhiteMale patriarchal empowerment
and exclusively sacred
anthro-privileged enlightenment

Intolerant
of any sexual/sensory sin
certainly not accepting inclusive eros enfranchisement,
nor ever sacredly esteeming non-elite sensory empowerment,
instead excommunicating our most holy enspirited
experiential communions

Transubstantiating mediating communicators
supposedly created to support
empower
enlight us
as God chose to gracefully make
all Earth’s regenerative LifeGiving PolyCultures

Working and playing win/win together
throughout catholic
multicultural Church History
of queer saints
male-secretary infatuated popes
pansexual Psalmists
LGBTQ ecclesial teachers and lawyers and financial officers
translators
academics

And extended ecofeminist
Holy Green Spirit ecologists
holonic catholic economic
ecosystemic
ChristianCreation theologists
reflecting on God’s angelic alliances
transubstantiating experiential communion
of LGBTQ Saints and Lovers
and Extended HolyFamily
remembered and long forgotten
Elders among us
on this Epiphany of AllSaints EarthDay.

Please advise False VaticanTeachers
we are unwilling to continue co-investing
in Patriarchal Sin
because MulticultureCreatorGod
does not invest in,
does not bless,
sins of omitting
Earth’s own health wealthy King/Queendom
at Left/Right Hand
bilaterally transubstantiating
experiential InterFaithed Culture communion

Restoring healthy EarthJustice
by not continuing to invest
in unwealthy StraightWhiteMale dominant ignorance,
sin
and superstition

As if CreatorGod/Dess
looked and sounded
communicated and communioned
unsubstantiated thoughts and feelings
appropriate to a foolishly Naked
RightWing dogmatic
Straight White Emperor,
proclaiming sacred ProLife

Red Green and Blue

Red grows politically angry
about wealthy society’s conspiracy
to keep my ego away
from health’s abundant wealth.

Blue spreads out
economically fearful of anger’s power,
my own loss of leftbrain control,
most times less,
sometimes more
than terrifying competitive victory,
unhealthy monopolization
of light and power,
wealth accumulated
by neglecting
postponing
preempting HaveNot wishes,
accelerating Earth abusive investments
of a powerful
and punishing
highly narcissistic
inhumane
pissed off
judgmentally quivering society,
blatantly unsustainable.

Green ecological relationships
remain hopeful
the conjunction of two polarizing
paralyzing negatives,
anger and fear,
like two negatives
equaling a positive,
will produce healthier wealth,

Not more political envy
and economic greed;
but heavenly peace
and nonviolent EarthJustice.

Planning for Grace

Last night I arrived very late
for a GRACE planning team meeting.
GRACE’s mission advocates against
all things racist,
whether systemic
or the normal chaos of hate
and sin
against everyday non-violent win-win
choices
policies
procedures
positions
platforms political and economic
sacred and secular
sociological and neurological.

I stepped into discussion of a thesis
that all policies are either racist
or anti-racist.

We were trying out various policies
to see if we could discover which they were.
This reminds me of a popular radio show
outing “HIDDEN RACISM!”

This discernment process
also reminds me of a hiring incident
in our Southern Region
In which a job description
with preference for academic credentials
over indigenous democratic leadership experience
led to hurt feelings of being disrespected
and concerns about systemic white male privilege
within our Unitarian Universalist Association
for egalitarian
and interdependent compassion.

Are budgeting procedures
that begin with authority of last year’s status quo
and are then incrementally nuanced
through recommendations of currently empowered authority figures,
like Treasurers
and CFOs
and Board of Invested,
often age Infested,
Directors,
racist or anti-racist?

Is prejudice just about policies
that must be bilaterally explicated
as healthy or unhealthy for inclusive empowerment,
or is white male privilege also hidden in our procedures,
our therapeutic proposals,
our strategic plans
to do more of the ZeroSum same,
whatever that may competitively be?

What about all our communications,
verbal and non-verbal,
personal and public?

What about all our investments
of time
and money
and positive or negative
or ambivalently uncommitted attitude?

And are all these things
just racist or anti-racist?
Or might they also be
egopatriarchal or ecofeminist,
ageist or multigenerationally inclusive,
nonbinary-phobic or pansexual,
aristocratic or democratic,
communal or capitalistic,
cooperative or competitive,
polycultural or monocultural,
WinWin or LoseLose,
NonZeroSum or ZeroSum,
RightBrain prominent or LeftBrain dominant,
non-violent or violent?

I can hardly wait to read more
about this thesis or antithesis
to find out what I may have missed
all my racist or anti-racist years.

Strategic Ignorance

The best preventative and remedial antibiotic for narcissism,

whether internal or external, or both,

is to strategically ignore their aggression.

Do not feed or water bullies.

Pretend you cannot see or hear or even smell them,

and those parts of yourself,

internal voices,

most predative.

Enough to be Dangerous

Do you know the concern?
“S/he knows just enough
about a through z
to be dangerous.”

I am uncomfortably familiar
with this analysis,
a weapon often wielded
from ivory towers
overly influenced by ideology
masquerading as theory
rooted in statistically measured experience,
severed from historical-cultural,
biological-neurological indigenous context.

Even so,
one feeling I am sure of
my own too robust expertise
is Intolerance.

And, now I am discovering
I have chosen to join a community
with a multicultural intention
to embrace,
or at least tolerate,
all souls,
all species,
all living systems
except those deemed too intolerant,
too wounded,
for multicultural health
as a resonant indicator
of economic and political wealth.

We are exclusively intolerant
of intolerance
because we would provide safe sanctuary
to all souls,
especially victims of monoculturing intolerance,
of win/lose economic and political supremacy,
strategy
gamesmanship.

I find a tension here
between unconditional love
and lacking sufficient curiosity
and courage
to discuss shared values
and disvalues
with those too defensive
too hurt
too lost
too conservative
to tolerate intolerably queer me,
to tolerate the alien Other.

This reactionary intolerance
of intolerant prejudice
bigotry
often straight white male supremacy,
feels like further breeding ground
for misunderstanding,
segregation,
mutual divestment business as usual,
more win/lose devolutionary anger and fear,
more potential violence,
hate,
war

More egocentric privilege
rather than universal ecosystemic love power

Actively hoping to cooperatively uncover win/win
polycultural resolutions
resiliently curious
and courageous
when in the presence of win/lose competitions
intolerant of active hope
for restoring peace
by retiring retributively inflicted punishment
shunning
non-communication
anti-communion
for past sins of intolerance.

Hate-Love Relationship

Where we embrace love,
Grief is as strong as death;
love lost.

Where we are afflicted with hate,
Gratitude is as strong as death;
loss wished for.

Grief rages against loss,
Yet gratitude lost
can become violently angered,
terrorist frightened
of present and future
as past’s reincarnate vulnerable pain.

Grief begins
felt in solitary vulnerability.
Gratitude eventually heals
through transparently shared solidarity.

Love is as strong as
mortality’s vulnerable weakness.
No more,
no less,
as these merge into one healing face
of gratitude for co-relational gain
more than mere absence of pain.

Habitual love,
Earth-inhabiting resonant life,
Eco-regenerativity
as strong as
Ego-relationality.

Fundamental Choice

You can’t love what
and whom
you don’t know.

But,
you can choose,
become used to,
become heavily invested in,
become committed to,
then become addicted to hating whatever
and whomever
you don’t yet know
with cognitive and emotive intelligence.

Especially if no know-one listened
and learned you better
healthier
wealthier
gooder
feeler-thinker.

Hopeful Whistling Signs

I recall similar signs and notices
of ironic appeal:

“We have a zero-tolerance policy against bullying”
ripped and torn,
and is that a dried yellow yolk stain?

“This is a NO GUNS neighborhood”
surrounded by a lot
vacant except for weeds
mulched in broken shards of glass.

ZERO CRIME AREA notices
as prolific as NO HUNTING signs
in SureWood BeNice Forest.

Me thinks
we protest
too much
to not raise questions
about the wisdom of declaring victory
and moving on,
rather than struggling through win/lose
toward win/win resilient climates of peace.

Perhaps the guns
and their bully keepers
can’t read,
or don’t choose to notice the notice,
or don’t have enough time
in their conflicted day
on their lose/lose way
to making liars
of our best win/win published intentions

Made by frustrated raw spot prey
on some other day
in some other room
they would not
could not
should not feel free to enter
listen
then speak transparently
of their/our own vulnerably exhausted sweet spots

Now worn into deeply entrenched
isolated anger
hate
fear
envy
mistrust
distrust
defensive fight and/or flee choices

Provoked by win/lose competitive environments
cultures
climates
experiences
not bully and gun and crime
and co-related raw spot free.

Universal compassion
is a worthy goal.
But declaring goals already achieved
does not help induce real world cooperative progress,
especially for those not in the room
to help write our negative injunctions.

Perhaps we would healthier
and more effectively begin
with our positive universal aspirations:

We invite Zero Intolerance
Learning to listen with active compassion.

This is a ProPeace place
Cooperatively held active safe space
for growing our ego/eco-managed win/win grace.

We multiculturally and inclusively love co-passion searches
rather than dispassioned hunts
and nihilistic degenerative desertions.

Healthy people
seldom step out in anger
while co-inviting ourselves to step into compassion
with coming peacefully home messages
rather than angry commands to go back
to alien lose/lose lands from which none of us
could ever hope to survive,
much less win/win thrive.

Signs against patriarchal colonizing offenses
do not give compassionate notice
we are for matriarchal creolizing passions.

Through Thick and Thin

There are no walls
too thick to complete absorbing hate.

We knit together no fragile win/win webs
of interdependent cooperativity
too thin to resiliently invite
timelessly emergent love.

I have no thoughts
too thick to withstand win/lose business as usual
evolutionary theories

And no feelings too vaporously slender
holy
spiritual
too thin to compassionately invite health
for timelessly emergent climates,
in and out
spirit yinning and nature yanged
holy and yet physically whole
open ecosystemic
just right EarthWomb

Regenerative/degenerative
Right both/and and Left either/or
complexly feeling curious courage
sometimes chaotically expressed
reversed
revisioning
revolutionary
revolving compassionate resonant
resilience

Polypathic ZeroZones
poyphonically harmonic/dissonant
sweet thickly polynomial spots
with raw not not polytheistic unbound plots.

Ego thickness requests,
commands,
sometimes demands
polypathic Wisdom
Where ecosystemic thin dipolar boundaries
invite polycultural Integrity.

Fundamentalism v Evangelical

I believe
I can be an evangelical
multiculturally intelligent Christian
if I am not an anti-historical literalist,
a fundamentally white patriarchal dogmatist,
using holy scripture to divide and conquer
what divine creation has compassioned to regather.

I also know beyond death’s shadow
and within life’s promise
A fundamentally patriarchal believer
in God’s might makes Earth right
cannot be a good news gospel driven
spiritually maturing
evangelical Christian believer
and doer
and follower
of polypathic cosmic-conscious Christ
timelessly embodied.

What is healthy evangelical loving witness
is antithetical to patriarchal fundamentalist dogmatism.

Evangelical Christians follow Christ’s win/win multiculturing heart path
of integrity.
Fundamentalists, fake-Christian and fake-Islamic
and fake empowerers of all faiths
and all natural/spiritual systems,
lead win/lose monoculturing mind pathology
of mendacity.

To learn the difference
between fundamentalism and evangelical vocation
is to know us by our communal natural love
and our divisive anti-spiritual judgments
against those who shrink
down into fundamentally shriveled
win/lose zero-sum narcissists.
