When religion ruled the world
« on: March 05, 2013, 06:43:58 PM »
Long distance dedication to Pope Benedict - how the hell a religion can hang the crimes and joys on one human - a heavy hat and a heavy coat.  The horrible burdens of religion and the protection of it are ruining our world.

Lyrics by Coldplay

Quote
I used to rule the world
 Seas would rise when I gave the word
 Now in the morning I sleep alone
 Sweep the streets I used to own
 I used to roll the dice
 Feel the fear in my enemies' eyes
 Listen as the crowd would sing
 "Now the old king is dead, long live the king!"
 One minute I held the key
 Next the walls were closed on me
 And I discovered that my castle stands
 Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand

 I hear Jerusalem bells a'ringing
 Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
 Be my mirror, my sword and shield
 My missionaries in a foreign field
 For some reason I can't explain
 Once you'd gone it was never,
 never an honest word
 That was when I ruled the world
 It was the wicked and wild wind
 Blew down the doors to let me in
 Shattered windows and the sound of drums
 
People couldn't believe what I'd become
 Revolutionaries wait
 For my head on a silver plate
 Just a puppet on a lonely string
 Oh...who would ever wanna be king
 I hear Jerusalem bells were ringing
 Roman Cavalry choirs were singing
 Be my mirror, my sword and shield
 My missionaries in a foreign field
 For some reason I can't explain
 I know St. Peter won't call my name
 Never an honest word
 But that was when I ruled the world
 Whoaaa (x4)
 (Whoa...) Here Jerusalem bells were ringing
 (Whoa...) Roman Cavalry choirs were singing
 (Whoa...) Be my mirror, my sword and shield
 (Whoa...) My missionaries in a foreign field
 (Whoa...) For some reason I can't explain
 (Whoa...) I know St. Peter won't call my name
 Never an honest word
 But that was when I ruled the world

We could go on all day pointing out flaws in every single religion known to man .

No argument there.

The pope is one of the most celebrated people in the world .

Yep, right up there with Santa.
My tolerance for BS is limited, and I use up most of it IRL.

Not sure if spambot.
