I wish I could help her get out of Iranian religious justice into a country that respects women.

How many Iranian women have pictures without veils that if they visit the U.S. can be sent back to the Iranian religious Gestapo and be used to flog women with 99 lashes.

God Of Mercy Help An Iranian Woman From Flogging and Stoning


Your Holiness, thanks for standing up against abuse,

While the Church has suffered in its own affliction

That tried to keep a lid on the pedophile dark secret

That fermented in cancerous lesions of cannon law.


That only in the public confessional will healing begin

That the problem needs analyzed with love’s devotion

That claims the mountain core of Truth’s human faith

That respects all human life in deserving His loving graces.


God of Mercy let’s fight the religious abuse and torture,

Let us fight worldwide governmental abuse and torture,

Let neighborhoods join together, against abuse and torture

Found in any organization and family over time’s passing.


That we do not need to keep abuse swept under floors

But teach the effects and conditions in open airing forums,

 Especially, where those that bear the mark can seek solace.

That needs to release built up frustration in locked up minds.


God of Mercy,

Abuse and torture are an abomination to humanity

That needs understanding,

Its effects taught before,

Too late actions.

For when that word

Has another’s ears attention,

Or that blow hits another

Leaving that grave mark ,

One may heal on the outside,

But the scar inside

“”Is a lifetime memory.””


So God of Mercy,

Can Christians pray

For a Muslim women

That will receive 99 lashes

And then be stoned to death in Iran

In the name of Iran’s Allah the Great.


Show your and His compassion,

And with the Pope,

Say abuse and torture,

Are morally repugnant.



But God how many women,

Will look the other way,

To say she deserved all of this

Treatment for not wearing a veil,

In a picture, somewhere in the past?

Yes, she deserved this Muslim’s fate.


A Pope will have a prayer vigil,

While the world looks at Iran.

And if she is - put to death.

They will post her picture in newspapers

With a black border of Iranian Justice.

That is more brutal,

Than the Shah every was.
