We’re told we have Freedom of Religion
until an Athiest comes along and asked
that the word God be taken away.
At our expense the government agrees
its ok, what about us as Christians don’t
we get a say.
I as a christian can respect that in nothing
you believe, can’t we just agree to disagree.
Your free to have your beliefs, and I am free
to have mine, tell me where we draw the line.
I respect that to you there is no heaven
or no hell, however, removing God from
everything still isn’t going to serve you very well.
God lives within our homes and our hearts
you see, so go ahead and try your best,
but you can’t take him away from me.
We’re told we have Freedom of speech,
then we’re told to watch our words.
Becareful what you say, someone
might just take offense. What has gotten
into everyone these days, this really makes
We have to mind our words, our thoughts
hell eventually our dreams, today more
than ever so it seems.
I should be free to be me, and you to be you.
We are made to be different, especially unique.
What type of understanding is it that you truly seek?
It makes no difference to me what choice it is you make,
as long as it is not my freedoms that you are choosing to take.
We’re told we have the Right to Bare Arms,
For the protection of our families and our homes.
Put those arms in the hands of criminals and thugs
and suddenly the fault becomes our guns.
I agree everyone has the right to life,
but blame the criminal not the device.
Controlled by nothing more than the idol hand,
but these words one must hear and understand.
Threaten my home, my family, or my life,
I will defend them at all cost.
For with that same gun you point at me,
My life wont be the one that’s lost.
What happened to times when we took
responsibility for our own actions, owned
up to what has been done.
We have lost sight of what these rights
really mean, choosing to put on them our
own spin, but no matter how you choose
to see it a sin is still a sin.
