I run a family business, and
I’d like to make it clear:
Unless you put the bible first
You are not welcome here.
Forget the constitution—see,
The thing you have to know…
The rules I heed were given us
Two thousand years ago
Well, more than that, or maybe less,
I’m not exactly sure;
I only know God loves us, and
He wants to keep us pure.
So sin is what we’re fighting, and
I’ve got to take a stand
Though I’ve never read the bible, still
I follow its command
Cos the bible says I’m righteous, and
The bible says I’m good
And I wouldn’t be a bigot, but
The bible says I should
So it’s fine to bring your handgun
Cos the gospels say okay
But I will not take your money, if
It’s clear that you are gay
Some Christians disagree with me—
They’re wrong, it’s guaranteed—
I’m just following the bible…
Which, some day, I ought to read.
This one suggested itself after I read Ed’s post about the local lawyer’s response to the Grand Rapids mechanic.
