Tags: Religion, War, Hate

This is my take on Religion, I detest organised religions and hold them resonsible for all the worlds ills.

God is gracious, God is great

Twas God that taught us how to hate

God is mighty, he gives us power

To destroy the lives in the twin towers

5000 dead, now that must prove

Of God's great wisdom and eternal love

Praise the lord the klansmen shout

Now let us burn the niggers out

Love thy neighbour? The good books right!

As long as he's protestant and white

Children orphaned every day

As the enlightened spread the holy way

All hail the father and the son

Proclaims the man as he loads his gun

The meek shall inherit the earth, its said

Comforting words to the millions dead

Dead through war, diseases and famine

Oh just sit back, admire God's planning

So what's the aim of this God above

To unite the world in peace and love?

If he plans to make us equal, the same

Then his is sure a mysterious game

He walks on water, brings back the dead

Turns water to wine, stands on his head!

So why can't he , with a wave of his hands

Bring even one day of peace to these poor lands

Imagine there's no heaven, words from a song

I could live with that, don't say it's wrong

To live a life free from the ways

Of religious men and their righteous haze

God is gracious, God is great

Twas god that taught us how to hate
