The Lyrics

Who says that life is started at conception
And needs the protection of the Court Supreme?
And who says that man came not from apes but Eden
And that Adam's Eve did scheme?
The Bible The Bible Religion!
The Bible The Bible Religion!

Who says a woman must not show her face, and
That the act disgraces Allah who is great,
And where is it said that if she disobeys, a
Stony death must be her fate?
The Qu'ran The Qu'ran Religion!
The Qu'ran The Qu'ran Religion!

Who says a man whose color isn't white is
Not allotted rights, and three-fifths of a man, and
Who says a woman doesn't get to vote
Because it wasn't in God's plan?
The Founders The Founders The Fathers!
The Founders The Founders What Mothers!

Can't you see they're simply products of their time?
An ancient time, a long-past time
Reading them in context hardly is a crime,
Don't act as though you're dense!
There are bound to be anachronistic bits
That give you fits, so keep your wits;
Yes, there will be misses just as well as hits
You've got to use good sense!

Now THAT verse is wisdom indeed!

Well done, Brian. Wasn't a movie made by Monty Python about the story of your life?

Thanks, Johnny D!

Monty Python has not made a movie of my life
But if he got in touch, I would pick up the phone
Cause if I was a star, I'd be living the high life
Everywhere that I'd travel, my name would be known!

Truer words have rarely been spoken, at least on this website. Three fives for you.

The legend lives on from Mount Sinai on down of the tablets shown by Charlton Heston. But most holy books need some thoughtful good looks, for the fundamentalists ain't restin'.
