God is bigger than gender
larger than ethnicity
greater than skin color
more powerful than religious squabbles
transcends sexuality and
does not limit one's calling to human
definitions or restrictions.

There is no shame in being female and
no privilege or power in being male.
Only God is infallible.
Sacred is a personal determination,
not the unilateral conviction of those who fear
others might think too carefully about
how tightly they are being controlled.
