A Man, They Made a God

He danced with harlots
He drank with thieves
He ate with beggars
He slept with killers
He conversed with the humble

They believed …

He defied the high priests
He shunned the kings
He ridiculed the powerful
He snubbed the rich

They killed him!

And erected a church …
In His name

From: 
Evil Saints, Innocent Devils
