Which came first, the prayer or the bomb? (a poem)

My God is bigger than your God
My weapons are bigger than your weapons
Because my God is bigger than your God
My country is wealthier than your country
Because my weapons are bigger than your weapons
My God is bigger than your God
Because my country is wealthier than your country

God likes the United States more than other countries
Because God helps those who help themselves
And no country helps itself to other countries’ wealth like the United States
God likes a winner
And the United States is the biggest winner since the Roman Empire
God liked the Roman Empire
Even though it used to persecute the church
But in the end the Romans made the church official
And then the church replaced the Romans
So it all worked out in the end

Roman Empire gladiatorsIt is possible to know what God wants
God speaks through the Republican Party platform
The platform says it represents God
Therefore what God wants is in the Republican Party platform
God gives the country with the most believers the most weapons
Because believers are the most likely to use the weapons
And then there will be less believers in other countries
So it will be easier to take those other countries’ wealth
Proving that the country with the most wealth
Has the most believers
And therefore is the best country
It is easy to believe

    Awesome 🙂
    Conservative Christians deserve all mockery. They read neither the Bible nor Marx – yet they claim they champion knowledge in both Christianity and Marxism. It never stops amazing me how far the Capitalist mass-deception extends. They convinced the Christian masses to follow the exact opposite of the biblical doctrines: the evil Mammon-idolatry as presented by atheist (!) Ayn Rand.
    If these so-called conservative Christians would actually read what they are talking about, they would realise they are de facto heretics whereas Marx’ views are in perfect harmony with Christ’s teachings.
