The Lyrics

Meant as satire. I would never say this as myself.
Maybe you wanna go and spoil the church
and leave parishioners all in the lurch.
Or maybe you think that gays should stand up tall
one gay bishop beats having none at all.

Oh, in that case, I don't want no part.
I do believe that that would only break God's heart.
Oh, but if you feel morality is a magic potion
I second that devotion.
Say, if you prefer holy water, over sex-toy lotion
I second that devotion.

Maybe you think that gays will just shut up
and think that this will overflow their cup.
Or maybe you think you'll take us all for fools
ignoring the Old Testamenting rules.

Oh, in that case, I don't want no part.
I do believe that that would only break God's heart.
Oh, but if you feel morality is a magic potion
I second that devotion.
Say, if you prefer holy water, over sex-toy lotion
I second that devotion.

(instrumental gap)

Oh, in that case, I don't want no part.
I do believe that that would only break God's heart.
Oh, but if you feel morality is a magic potion
I second that devotion.
Say, if you prefer holy water, over sex-toy lotion
I second that devotion.
I second that devotion.
I second that devotion.
(repeat 'til fade)

had to split a little on the funny , Michael, overall good song, current, and relevant.. I guess the ones in the church who don't agree are the e-pissed co-palians now personally I think it's ok.. if his committment to morality, fidelity and overall goodness of spirit and soul, I would attend his church, and I'm not an episcopalian

I understand the "split the funny" part. A lot of these songs are angry, and splitting the category between "how funny" and "how well point is made" might be fairer. So it's a fair vote. I second Malcolm's vote-tion.

I agree with your song Michael and I gave points for funny based on how well the point. I disagree with attending any church with openly gay clergy. God calls this sex act an abomination and has no place in His Church. 5+5+5! Just my humble opinion and belief system. Good job!

There's only two people who have shown themselves able to praise what I do and still upset me at the same time. The other is my mother. And people who like to describe themselves, or their opinions, as "humble" rarely are.

Boy Mike, I really wish I knew what you mean here. I assume your mother and you are on good terms. I really meant what I said and this is one of the few instances where we seem to agree. And yes I do have a way of upsetting people, but that just goes with the alpha personality. The opinion in this case was a humble one, please take it at that. I have other opinions and they are not so humble. Just to reiterate - A very good parody here and not just because I happen to agree with it. I was written very well. God Bless you.
