Y'know. I can handle it better when you pick on me. Leave my friends alone okay?
Why is it you're in this to crush people's spirits? Yes. I said Crush. When someone volunteers to do something in GOD's church you don't get a say. When are you going to learn?
They're working for God, they're following the prompting of the Holy Spirit, they're trying to do something God has called them to do and all you can do is put them down?! How dare you.
What are you doing? Are you helping them? Are you encouraging them? Why no. You're not. You're in the background attacking their character.
They're doing God's work.
Whose work are you doing? Tell me, because I'd really like to know.
Church people--sometimes you need to shut your big ugly mouths.
I remember when you, dear church people, made me cry. When you sat in your circles and accused me. You had that look in your eyes, like if you'd have had a rock in your hand you would've stoned me.
Now you're making my friend cry and it pisses me off even more to know you're still at it. To know you still show up every Sunday and sing your songs and say your prayers and to know your heart is still full of vile nastiness.
Why? Why do you do these things?
You, church people, the ones who SHOULD be supporting other church people, are instead breaking people's hearts.
I just don't know how to love you right now.
God forgive me if I've ever been a church person. Help me to never, ever crush someone's spirit.
