I came across this song today, and found the lyrics had already been posted. Let's put them in the music section, too.

Thread Name: BS: Cool! a conservative white man nominated
Subject: RE: BS: Cool! a conservative white man nominated

From the genious kid himself... Todd Snider


Song: Conservative Christian, Right Wing, Republican, Straight, White, American Males
Album: East Nashville Skyline


Conservative Christian, right wing Republican, straight, white, American male.
Gay bashin', black fearin', poor fightin', tree killin', regional leaders of the South
Frat housin', keg tappin', shirt tuckin', back slappin' haters of hippies like me.
Tree huggin', peace lovin', pot smokin', porn watchin' lazyass hippies like me.
Tree huggin', love makin', pro choicen, gay weddin', widespread diggin' hippies like me.
Skin color-blinded, conspiracy-minded, protestors of corporate greed,
We who have nothing and most likely will 'till we all wind up locked up in jails
By conservative Christian, right wing Republican, straight, white, American males,.

Diamonds and dogs, boys and girls, living together in two separate worlds
Following leaders of mountains of shame, looking for someone to blame.

Diamonds and dogs, boys and girls, living together in two separate worlds
Following leaders of mountains of shame, looking for someone to blame.
I know who I like to blame:

Conservative Christian, right wing Republican, straight, white, American males,
Soul savin', flag wavin', Rush lovin', land pavin' personal friends to the Quayles
Quite diligently workin' so hard to keep the free reins of this Democracy
From tree huggin', peace lovin', pot smokin', barefootin' folk-singin' hippies like me.
Tree huggin', peace lovin', pot smokin', porn watchin' lazyass hippies like me.

Pot smokin', porn watchin'.

Shurley shome mishtake? Ed.

Joe do you really think these simplistic lyrics are in any way positive. Stereotypes and generalisations only feed the simple minded, do you as a Christian like being grouped with "Gay bashin, black fearin' poor fightin'"?

Love it! Here's Todd Snider performing it Click here

It reminds be a bit of the Youngblood's parody of "Okie From Muskogee", "Hippie From Olema" that Banana recently redid with some hot bluegrass musicians. Click here

Ake, I don't take these ideological squabbles too seriously. I tend to laugh at both sides. I posted the song because I think it's funny.
I do, however, delete the posts of anonymous guests if the tone of their posts is negative. We allow anonymous posting for serious music discussion, not for trolling. Got that, HiLo?

I was not trolling, I was commenting on lyrics I thought were infantile and insulting.

My wife is very ill in hospital, although I have seldom been in Church and am nominally an atheist many local Christians have come and asked if they may pray for us both......I have been very deeply touched by their concern. They are wonderful people who embody the principles of the Christian faith.....If there is a God and an afterlife I wish them nothing but good in it.

I am beginning to think that we atheist do not have the strength to support a faith, we are so inhibited by science and life.

I am constantly reminded of an event concerning the death of a relative which could not be explained, it concerned powers of communication which science reckons to be impossible.....but I know it actually happened. Was it God or simply a power that we are unable to explain like intuition?   Let the Mystery be I say.

Joe, I'm sorry to say this, but you only encourage the enemies of your faith.

"Enemies of his faith"? Jaysus.

Sorry about your wife, Ake, but get a grip. Or take up spiritualism & table rapping.

Your wonderful local Christians could just as easily be doing it for their own sake.

I m not stupid Greg....I can smell a phoney a mile away.

You are a decent guy, why do you find it so hard to see goodness in others?
This place has more than it's share of phoneys, I have never considered you to be insincere and you know that I have no faith, why insult me?

Have any local non-Christians also offered support, Ake?

If you consider someone taking issue with silly statements like "an event concerning the death of a relative which could not be explained, it concerned powers of communication which science reckons to be impossible" to be an "insult" then I would suggest you refrain from making such in future.

Thanks Greg and Jack I will pass on your good wishes; amazing how little things mean such a lot at times like this.

Greg, you have no right to take issue, you don't know what I am referring to...and it was far from "silly" at the time, I was deeply shocked.
