"Imagine (No Devil)"

Parody Written by:

Ingeborg S. Nordén

The Lyrics

Although I do have some Christian friends whose beliefs I can respect without agreeing, hell-obsessed types who see Satanic forces everywhere in popular culture are another story. This parody is dedicated to everyone who's tired of fire and brimstone--on the net, on TV, and on the streets of their hometowns.
Imagine there's no devil
And no Satanic lies
No Hell below us
You just might be surprised
Imagine all the people
living their own way

Imagine there's no Bible
to tell you what to do
No one to save or damn us
Imagine that as true

Imagine all the people
knowing inner peace

You may say that's deceiving
that I'm sure to be undone
Maybe no one will destroy us
whom the world needs to shun?

Imagine no possession
I wonder if you can
No need for demons under
the culture made by man

Imagine all the people
thankful for the world

You may say that's deceiving
that I'm sure to be undone
Maybe no one will destroy us
whom the world needs to shun?

Hmm, now who could have inspired you to write THAT? Could it be...I don't know...SATAN?!

Nice, but what about the psychopaths, which are 1-2% of people anyway - and capable of making a living hell of the earth. And, of course, the powerholders - if there is no religion threatening of an eternal punishment, the powerholders need to make a Hell already on Earth to frighten the subjects into submission. That is why Communists (who were Atheists) ruled with terror.

Am I to assume that Susanna wants the devil to stick around?

BTW, nice job.

*nods* As a disabled pagan who's dealt with a few "drive-by faith healings" here in town, I have gotten tired of *some* Christians' assumption that I worship, serve, and/or am possessed by Satan (who is not even part of my theology, for crying out loud). I didn't expect a lot of votes--high or otherwise--for this song; it's just my way of venting frustration when a few religious fanatics go too far.

I don't think that Satan really requires you to believe in him to possess you. I am not saying that you are possessed, so don't think that I am. I am sure that you are not possessed. I am also sure, however, that not everyone who ever has been possessed was in that state because they worshipped and or served Satan.

No one has to ask where Crazy got his name!

I agree completely. When I was 13, my father started dated a religious nut. One of the things that I remember clearest about her was her saying "I've had a relationship with Jesus longer than anyone else." 555 (I would give you 666 if I had the option, ha ha ha.) By the way, I practice magic myself, so I know what it's like. :- )
