“The truth was a mirror in the hands of God,
It fell, and broke into pieces.
Everybody took a piece of it, and they looked at it
And thought they had the truth.”  Jalâl ad-Din RUMI

“Religious fundamentalists see themselves
As having remedies for the maladies of the modern world.
In reality, they are symptoms of the disease they pretend to cure.”  John GRAY

“The worst wars are religious wars between sects of the same religion,
Or civil wars between brothers of the same race.”  Ayn RAND

“It is easier to raise a temple than to bring down the object of worship.”  Samuel BECKETT

When religion is a pretext to alienate, oppress, enslave, rape and kill,
God is condemned to become
A perpetual war machine.

Some people say, he is a concept,
Dreamed up by men to measure their pain and to overcome their fears.
God, God, God…

Some say, he cannot be petitioned with praying
For others he is highness, love, vengeance, freedom and justice.

No freedom of speech
No freedom of thought
No freedom of conscience
No freedom of doubt
No freedom of choice
No freedom for women
The omnipotence of men
Perpetual war machine

Perpetual war machine
“Belief in a cruel god makes a cruel man”,  Thomas PAINE
Perpetual war machine
God forever. God, God, God…
 Perpetual war machine
“In every man sleeps a prophet…”
Perpetual war machine
“… and when he wakes, there is a little more evil in the world”,  Emil CIORAN

Some people say, he created everything
Everything and so many lies and manipulation,
Division and mutilation,
Chaos and destruction,
Genocides and persecutions
“Belief in a cruel god makes a cruel man”, Thomas PAINE

Some say, he is absolute truth
So absolute that it makes you feel so superior
That it makes you think you’re better than the rest of humanity
So you can claim the monopoly of ethics.

Women and men of good will
Who agree that no one alone holds the truth,
I just want to tell you,
That he is back, black as thunder,
Rolling the dice more than ever…
God, God, God…

Perpetual war machine
“Belief in a cruel god makes a cruel man”,  Thomas PAINE
Perpetual war machine
God forever.  God, God, God…
Perpetual war machine
“In every man sleeps a prophet…”
Perpetual war machine
“… and when he wakes, there is a little more evil in the world”,  Emil CIORAN
Men, men, men…
Perpetual war machine

Perpetual war machine
“In every man sleeps a prophet…”
Perpetual war machine
God, men, God, men, God, men…
“… and when he wakes, there is a little more evil in the world”,  Emil CIORAN

“The truth was a mirror in the hands of God,
It fell, and broke into pieces.
Everybody took a piece of it, and they looked at it,
And thought they had the truth”,  Jalâl ad-Din RUMI
