A Chapter by Abdul Batin Osman Bey

a little glimpse into the Moorish Orthodox Church


My church has no walls

It is limitless

My church accepts all

Regardless of gender and race

My church is your church

It is autonomous


My church has no one clergy

Everyman a priest

Every woman a priestess

My church is Orthodox

Without dogma

Without creeds

My church is free

No donations needed


Those who share my church are renegades, outcasts

They are poetic revolutionaries

Chaotic magi and peace loving anarchists

Marijuana smoking opium orgy loving righteous family

They are these and all in-between


My church has a name

It is the Moorish Orthodox Church of America
