The Passion of the Christ_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why Jesus would be a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show
Oh, by the way I heard that Mel
was on the Ellen Show.
Their passions are not quite the same.
He's hetero you know.
A Gibson girl this host is not.
We all know Ellen's gay.
And Mel's a bloody Jesus chap
who claims the narrow way.
But lest you judge the actor's choice
for being Ellen's guest,
consider what you know of Christ.
Let that be Prudent's test.
This rabbi ate with prostitutes.
He hung with the maligned
while those self-righteous holy types
were hateful and unkind.
Though criticized, the rabbi loved
to mix with those who sinned.
In fact the Good Book clearly states
he was the sinners' friend.
The bottom line? I think J.C.
would sit at Ellen's side.
The passion of the Christ was love
and that is why he died.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
