DT Lyrics:





Subject: Godless America
From: Mrrzy
Date: 11 Feb 02 - 01:50 PM

This was suggested to me as a patriotic song even atheists could sing...

Godless America, land that I love
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above
From the mountains, to the prairies
To the oceans, white with foam
Godless America, my home sweet home (bis).

The idea that the singer is speaking to the PEOPLE - who should stand beside and guide her government, and make all appropriate uses of technology, which among other things provides light from ceilings, if nothing else...

So, is this what you call inclusive, Mrr? I have to admit I cringe just a little bit when I hear people sing "God Bless America" because it excludes nonbelievers - but doesn't your parody do the same thing, only from the opposite direction?

Somehow, this method loses something when applied to other songs, like:
Lessed Be the Tie That Binds
Less the Beasts and Children
Less This House
Count Your Lessings

Hee hee! And no, I wasn't meaning inclusivity, Joe, this is something an atheist can sing ALONG with the theists, and still be patriotic. Chances are nobody would even notice.

How about Lessed are the Meek? Or - even better - after a sneeze, can you say Less you?

Mrrzy - you expect theists to sing Godless? You're another symtom of what's wrong with the world. All you people are so FOR freedom of religion that you have turned it into freedom FROM religion. A little bit of reverse bias except that you guys would never admit to it as usual. GOD bless America! GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Remember that.

What the hell happened to you catspaw? You've lost your sense of humor, forgotten how to spell, and become a religious pedant.

Oh...you say this ain't the real spaw? Well, yeah, that would tend to explain it.

If I was the real spaw I would have sprinkled my comments with flatulance, masterbation and putdowns of EVERYONE who didn't agree with me. I'd kick Max in the balls too. That's acceptable behavior. I am not catspaw49 though- I am catspaw50. Get it?
