Patriotic Atheism

ATHEISTS ARE EVERYWHERE

There are Atheists in foxholes

Atheists in hurricanes

There are Atheists in all the roles

Denied by your refrains

Atheists are your fellow citizens

People who love and laugh and cry

Atheists are your relatives and friends

Don’t insult them with a lie

Atheists in many foxholes served

And some have had to die

Give Atheists the thanks deserved

Don’t dismiss them with a lie

Atheists are all around you

They work, they help, they care

And no matter what you think is true

Atheists are everywhere

And no matter what you think is true

They do not want your prayer

ATHEISTS IN FOXHOLES SONG

(May be sung to the tune of the Marine Corp Hymn)

Music: http://www.niehs.nih.gov/kids/lyrics/marine.htm

For the Bill of Rights of our free land

For the Treaty of Tripoli

Many Atheists have fought and died

In the air, on land and sea

Atheists in many foxholes served

No task too hard to try

Give Atheists the thanks deserved

Don’t dismiss them with a lie.

(May be sung to the tune of The Army Goes Rolling Along) Music: http://www.defenselink.mil/multimedia/audio

In the field, under sail

Atheists will never fail

Atheists were there all along

Helping us stay free

Protecting liberty

Lying about them is wrong.

So where e’er you go

People need to know

Lying about them is wrong

Where free people go

Let them always know

That Atheists are going along.

(May be sung to the tune of The Navy Hymn) Music: http://my.homewithgod.com/heavenlymidis/USA/usnhymn.html

To Atheists who were so brave

Thank you for all you did to save

Our freedoms that permit a few

To lie about the things you do

From your foxholes hear and see

This thanks from those you helped keep free.
