An ethnic religious denomination
believes it has the answer for this nation.
The descendants of separatist Christians
say just leave to us the important decisions.
That they are inbreeders is a particular problem
resulting in a crazy desire to condemn.
So they look down their collective, parnoid nose
on everyone else as a danger to pose.
Their average churchgoer just isn’t in the know
while, ironically, their scholars write scholarly prose.
They live in a cult-like world all their own
believing they are the chosen for a heavenly home.
They see themselves as better than others
but their culture is one that just smothers.
As a result, they are dying on the vine
while thinking that they are better than fine.
On a tour of heaven, visitors are warned of a door to steer clear.
Those separatists think they are the only ones there.
