All In The Name Of God

Rating: 5.0
Many seek with greed

Plunder! in the name of God

Pastor milks the congregation
Mullah reigns by intimidation
Innocents bleed when fanatics whine
Mayhem! in the name of God
Prospectors braved raging seas

Pastor milks the congregation Mullah reigns by intimidation Innocents bleed when fanatics whine Mayhem! in the name of God.. a reality of exploitation in the name of God. But we shall never forget there are also very many religious people who are really seeking God without a profit motive. thank you dear poet. tony
