I hate posting song lyrics…

But when I was looking up Scott krippayne, who with his pastor had the winning song in the American Idol contest, I saw the lyrics to “In the Name of God” and found them relevant. These are posted on his website, scottkrippayne.com.

IN THE NAME OF GODScott Krippayne/Regie Hamm

Grand inquisitions
Great Holy Wars
Crusade and conquer
Slaughter the Moors
Fighting, fighting
All in the name of God
Venom and fever
Fire in the veins
Bloodlust euphoria
Suicide planes
Dying, dying
All in the name of God
Father forgive us
For calling Your name
Down on all these games we play
More acquisition
Than we can afford
Trinkets and touchdowns
And golden awards
Getting, gainingAll in the name of God
Father forgive us
For calling Your name
Down on all these games we play
Sometimes were masters
Sometimes were slaves
The human condition
From cradle to grave
Help us, save us
All in the name of God

    Wow! Many of us, myself included, look at current events to reinforce our self-imposed rejections of childhood faiths. Then proof of religious nobility pops up in the oddest places.
