Advent 10

Are you in, or out?

A bastard: Out.
Born beyond the margin of human society,
where the animals shelter: Out.
Acknowledged by unreliable witnesses –
sheep herders, geriatrics, women, foreigners: Out.
Political refugee: Out.
Didn’t go to the right school: Out.
From the wrong place: Out.
Welcomes sinners: Out.
Touches those whose touch defiles: Out.
Breaks the Rules: Out.
Beyond the wall: Out.
Hung on a cross: Out.
Cursed by God: Out.

Are you in, or out?
