deliverance – November 29

11.29

The oppressions of narrow religion

we cited for opening Sundays and

closing off Sabbath. Holidays we

declared as times to shop, meaning

time to work. Our limits on usury

interest we ended in the name of

updating ancient scripture, so now the

poor struggle to survive their payday

loans. Prophet Bob said it, we’re gonna

serve somebody. We’ve swapped our

birthrights for a mess of pottage.
