venting

have you noticed the focus on religious values?
Venting April 2002

Ya know they push religon on us
As if there were no free will
Starting from our very pledge
Is it un-American to reject God
As if patriotism knew the difference
I notice all these self-proclaimed God fearing
Americans are so blinded by the stories of the bible
Are the first ones to cast their stones on the ones who can still see
Is there no peace in faith?
Where is the cross-embroidered on our flapping flag
Hidden between the red and white stripes?
Nestled amongst the seas of white stars?
