A road paved with intolerance, ignorance and fear

September 10, 2010

Somehow, this song just seemed right for this moment in time, when yet again, crazy people are misusing religion to justify intolerance, ignorance, fear and hatred.

On this Gratitude Friday, I’m grateful that there are lots of people NOT like that.

Some Day by John Mellencamp

Someday, someday
But I don’t know when
Someday, someday
But I don’t know when

Brother brother oh brother
Why are you walking down this road here
This is the road of madness and trouble
And it’s paved with intolerance, ignorance and fear

Someday, someday
But I don’t know when
Someday, someday
But I don’t know when

Drinking our liquor from a paper cup
Mean to each other
Enough is enough
I look at your face
You look just like me
Hey brother, I’m not your enemy

Someday, someday
But I don’t know when
Someday, someday
But I don’t know when

How many times can a spirit be broken
For this is the kingdom of heaven we’re given
Good fortune will come to those who create peace
For those are the ones that will walk in heaven

Someday, someday
But I don’t know when
Someday, someday
But I don’t know when

Someday, someday
But I don’t know when
Someday, someday
But I don’t know when
