This might be inspiring...until you realize that, out of the 535 members of Congress, only one - Pete Stark - has the courage and conscience to admit that he does not believe in God. And Congress is too busy reaffirming its trust in a mythical and supernatural god to do the job they were sent there to do. And why should they, when they can sit back and let God do all the work?
I LOVE THIS!!!
Response to Dale Headley:
I am as concerned as you about the bone-headed actions of most of the members of congress in reaffirming a motto that directly contradicts the constitution they pledge to uphold. My intention in offering this song to the freethought/humanist/atheist community was to describe as best I could, who we are (doctors, firefighters, friends, relatives, etc.), the issues we agree on (separation of church and state, prayers promoted by government, etc.), and what we believe in (freedom of conscience, science, human rights, reason, etc.). I was also looking to poke at the religious attitude that supports the “under god” phrase in the pledge of allegiance, where in the chorus, the song presents an idea we might all get behind as a secular nation - under nothing mythical or supernatural. So, I’m not sure how you connected my song in lacking inspiration... to the idiots in Congress. Are you saying that it might be inspiring if there were 535 atheists in Congress?
