Paradise Now

All you need is one word, Erase just one word from the minds of the people, Rout out just one idea, one concept, Eliminate 'Religion' from the dictionary of mankind-- Man's stupendous and gravest faux pas! And, you'll see peace, happiness, brotherhood; There won't then be any infidels, No gentiles, no heathens, No pagans, no idol worshipers; No racism, no hatred, no jihad, No crusades, no inquisition, No persecution, no repercussion. No church, no mosque, No temple, no synagogue, No holy scriptures, No words of God, No places of pilgrimage, No holy sites, no holy icons; There won't be a pope or a priest, Nor any saint or a swami, No mullah, no imam, No pundit or any rabbi. No one to dupe you, No one to lure you, No Satan, no sin, No guilty conscience, No need for confession No need for salvation; And, what the hell, There won't be any hell! "I Can't Breathe" contest by Cyndi MacMillan

Abdul, this is one hell of a poetic rant. Would that such a cleansing would bring about these results. This will be a fav and a 7.
