creating God in our image
Justified by Mark Valentine

My God is good. My God is great.
He hates everyone I hate.
I know he must look down upon
People that I frown upon.
It follows then, God must agree
With those who look and think like me.
In war, my God’s always allied
With soldiers on my country’s side.
In politics, or any sport,
He likes the side that I support.
 
So, logic'ly, since He’s divine,
And His views agree with mine,
That must mean my views are right,
And so I go to sleep at night
      With a calm exterior
      Morally superior.
 
Cuz moral high ground can’t belong
To anyone whose views are wrong.
But, as for me, I know the truth,
I’ve known it since I was a youth.
So, no need for my views to change,
For my salvation’s prearranged.
If you’d like to share my fate,
Come hate the people that I hate.
