A love poem from the bible by a lesbian couple is being shared on Facebook, and it’s being seen as a fitting tribute to the life of the late biblical figure.
The poem, titled “I Love You, God,” was posted to Facebook by the author of “The Song of the Gay Lesbian,” who identifies herself as an author and writer.
It’s titled after the Biblical passage in Matthew chapter 18:22, which describes a woman being given a kiss from a man.
“My life has changed forever,” reads the caption of the poem.
“I am no longer the same woman who used to be, but a woman with a purpose, a woman who loves God, a loving woman who always knew the truth, a faithful woman, and a loving wife.”
The poem is titled in part to Jesus.
“I am so glad I was able to love my mother,” reads one line.
“This man I know, I knew, loved my mother.
I never knew he loved anyone.
My mother is gone.
I love my mom, I love her, I loved her so much.”
The second line of the verse is written in the third person.
“And I will love you as I loved my father,” it reads.
The post is being seen by some as a tribute to Jesus in light of recent reports that gay marriage is now legal in seven states and Washington D.C. in addition to Massachusetts and Vermont.””
Love the Lord Jesus and all who love him.”

“Love is the first law, love the Lord is the second,” reads another line in the post.
“As a child I loved being a little boy, and then I loved the world.”
The couple has been featured in the online version of the popular book, “The Gay Lesbian Bible.”
“It was very heartwarming to see a woman, an author who writes for a Christian magazine, really do what she loves and how she loves her audience and how people in the church respond to her,” said Heather Fink, a spokesperson for the LGBT Christian Network, which runs the popular website, “Loving to Love.”
“We have seen some amazing responses from the LGBTQ community, and the more we do this, the more this will be seen and understood,” Fink added.
“We need to continue to be more aware and to be on the forefront of what’s happening and what we can do to support them and to make sure we are not complacent in our support and how to support our brothers and sisters in the LGBT community,” she said.
Fink, who has a son with her partner, said the post was a fitting gesture.
“The message is clear and powerful,” Finks said.
“It shows that love and support are always there for us.”
