RELIGION

Savage Distortion is not anti-God, anti-faith, and certainly not anti-spiritual. If faith helps you, if your belief comforts you, swell. My issue is with organized religions and how they manipulate those who believe, and, of course, the relationship between organized religion and war.

Frank Zappa summed it up fairly well on 1981's 'The Meek Shal Inherit Nothing':


"Some take the bible For what it's worth when it says that the meek shall inherit the Earth
Well, I heard that some sheik has bought New Jersey last week 'n you suckers ain't gettin' nothin'

Those Jesus Freaks, well, they're friendly but , the shit they believe has got their minds all shut An' they don't even care when the church takes a cut. Ain't it bleak when you got so much nothin'

Do what you wanna. Do what you will. Just don't mess up your neighbor's thrill.
'N when you pay the bill, kindly leave a little tip, and help the next poor sucker on his one way trip... "

Comments:
Frank had a good take on how Man uses reliogion to control the meek.
This is from "Dumb All Over";
You cant run a country
By a book of religion
Not by a heap
Or a lump or a smidgeon
Of foolish rules
Of ancient date
Designed to make
You all feel great
While you fold, spindle
And mutilate
Those unbelievers
From a neighboring state
