Respect and Obey Authority

As if there weren’t yet enough reasons why religion is bad, here’s another one:

This is West Coast Believers Kid’s band called X-TReMe PoWeR. It was our second song and we made up the lyrics and put it all together through garage band. It’s all about respecting and obeying your teachers, your parents, and Jesus! Hope you like this one too!

Respecting your teachers and parents, doesn’t sound too bad – but other than that, it’s hard to find anything that isn’t wrong with this song:

Authorities are here to help you. Do what they say and everything will be okay.
[…]
If you listen and obey, success  is yours today.
[…]
First of all, pray for all, who are in authority.
So that we, can live, in peace and happiness.

Yeah, right. I’m sure Hitler and Goebbels would’ve been proud of them. Just don’t question anything and do as you’re told – it always worked out just fine in the past. And not just for them, for everyone! Now those are just from within the last couple decades – don’t even get me started on the times preceding that…
