The Trilogy

If a child from birth is never told which religion he must choose, 
will he belong to the Muslims, the Christians or the Jews? 
Or will he grow up using his brain for the purposes it was designed, 
and think for himself all through his life, thus broadening his mind? 

And if this way of doing things began to be widespread, 
would so many people in this world still wind up being dead? 
Long before their natural lives have run their natural course, 
curtailed by some so called believer, in an act of savage force! 

Yes the fanatics use any means to make us see the light, 
but usually it is violence they employ to prove that they are right.
Although, they never answer the questions we raise, 
they just tell us we must believe or die, in the name of the one they praise!
