In the Name of God

In the name of God:
We kill a woman over her fetus.

In the name of God:
We spread hatred and racism.

In the name of God:
We spread our wars.

In the name of God:
We strive for perfection.

In the name of God:
We become a dictator.

In the name of God:
We use the bible as justification for our mistakes.

In the name of God:
People go hungry and homeless.

I denounce God.
A Hitler in the sky.
Causing us all to die.
Without freedom of expression.
Without the perseverance to move on.
Without the honesty of mistakes.

God – You don’t want us to move forward.
You have us bound in chains.
Afraid to live and learn.

So we repeat the cycle.
In the name of God:
Pray. Hate. Repeat.
