(a parable for the 21st century)

(Jehovah's Queer Witness)

A great warrior whose brave men and women perished in battle,
still stands tall before her enemies. Unslain and proud, she
dances the war dance high up on a ridge, where the enemies
stare from below. They are boiling with anger, for now, she

Suddenly, her left knee is pierced with an arrow...yet still
she dances. The limp she has acquired in no way diminishes the
nobility of The Dance; in fact it honors her more! So much so,
that the Great Spirit lifts her off the earth and into the
sky, to praise this fine warrior's indomitable courage.

The enemies, seeing this, grow jealous. So her other knee is
struck, and, amazingly, our brave warrior does not fall back
to earth, but dances on, and is elevated even higher! Then a
shower of arrows pierces her all over...yet still she dances,
never missing a step in her prideful display: the feathers of
her headdress touch the blazing sun itself, unsinged!

Still more arrows rain upon her, and her flesh falls away. Her
body parts all drop off, one by one...yet she still dances so
nobly, so beautifully! There is nothing left of her now, but a
dancing skeleton. Then even her bones fall, and what remains
after this? Her spirit, dancing!

For she *is Little Pony, brave warrior of the Sun, who dances
in the sky--silver unicorn with pink aura--celebrating the
liberation of all her earthly gay sisters and brothers across
this tiny globe. So remember this: whether the sun is shining
or not, or if it is on the other side of the planet: Little
Pony is dancing for you, for your victory. Little Pony is
invincible, for she *is The Spirit of Gay Pride. 

And sometimes when you squint up at Father Sun--especially
at dusk--you will see Little Pony dancing. And if you tell
her "thank you", you will find her also dancing in your heart,
