Faith-Based Initiatives

Lyrics by: Sunny Armer
Gaggle: NYC Metro
Tune: Give Me That Old-time Religion

Drop those faith-based initiatives,Stop those faith-based divisions,
Don’t make faith-based decisions,
It’s unconstitutional.

End that church-state integration!
We want church-state separation!
It was good enough for Jefferson,
It’s good enough for us.

They hang crosses in the halls,
Ten Commandments on the walls,
Christmas wreaths in bathroom stalls,
It’s unconstitutional.

They will not hire gay people
Under minarets and steeples,
Denouncing them as evil,
It’s unconstitutional.

They fund Muslims, Jews, and Christians,
Every sect and cult and schism,
They don’t fund atheism:
That’s unconstitutional.

We need secularization
To have justice in our nation.
Give us church-state separation,
And we’ll all have liberty.
