The Lyrics

this is why I'm against organised religion.. make your own peace with god..I have always said religion is for people worried about going to hell.. faith is for those who have been there and are now coming back.. oh and J.P shut up already, or turn in the list of ALL priests moved from parish to parish for sexual impropriety..
vatican's spoken, gave a trite warning
homos were hoping, waited his word
his words were stinging, gave a big warning
no praise he's bringing, this is absurd

told the priests, no fail, marriage forbidden,
Canada's new laws, not from "the book"
he says lif'es taken, morals have slidden
won't even think it, won't even look

I say let's do it, let them get married,
contract to live with, one of their choice
I think the pope has, may more problems,
like when his priesthood, shags little boys

Good pace Malcolm, but not all that funny.

Gads, Malcolm and all the rest...give it a rest already...this is tiresome and just going with the 'crowd'.

Malcolm, I find your commentary on this subject valuable; food for thought.

Very good, especially since the originator, Cat Stevens, is now a fundamentalist Muslim and no doubt hates gays. Somebody once said that baseball is like religion: Great game, bad owners. Or, as somebody Malcolm no doubt admires, Lenny Bruce, once said, "Every day, more people are leaving the church -- and going back to God."

"I say a little prayer for you . . ." Nice commentary.
