We’ve asked year after year
"No explanation! No records! Stop asking!"
But we’ll not give up, my brother
There’s an empty chair at our Christmas table
We'll have dinner together again some day
Until then we’ll help those like you

At Christmastime it seems so cold
to lock sick people in the hole
Mental illness is their crime
Over a million doing hard time
and His blessed Mother Mary
But Jesus' left the manger now
He's locked in solitary
you do also to me"
Christ shivers in His lonely cell
Every sick prisoner is He
and save Him from His plight?
God gave His Son to restore us all
Let's treat His brethren right
Enjoy the holidays during this season, and I wish you joy and safety whatever you celebrate. I celebrate the birth of JESUS CHRIST, the world's greatest human rights advocate and my personal Lord and Savior. He is against capital punishment (Psalm 102:19-20), prisoner torture (Heb. 13:3), victimizing people (Matt. 25:40), avoidable wars (Rom. 12:18 ), all forms of discrimination (Gal. 3:28 ), and apathy about human suffering, which is inexcusable (Prov. 31:8). Being a Christian, I rejoice that He came, but I am even more delighted that He will soon return. Every eye shall behold Him, King of kings, as Vickie Winans sings in the video embedded below (YouTube link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCWR1VT4mdk ).
