A Recipe for Disaster

 

A Recipe for Disaster

 

By Elton Camp

 

A theocracy existed in Israel of old

The benefits it brought were untold

 

That is, when people did as they should

The Law was holy, righteous and good

 

In other nations where religion held sway

Matters developed in a very different way

 

Human dignity and life itself did assail

For worshipers of  gods Chemosh & Baal

 

They who shudder if Islam does dominate

Christendom’s record should also hate

 

History shows the horrid problems it brought

When the divine right of kings was taught

 

The political state claims for God to speak

And the prospects for happiness grow weak

 

The wicked Crusades as an example recall

The corrupt church said to slay one and all

 

Disaster to Native Americans it did bring

When attacked in the name of God & king

 

Throughout history, carnage and conquest

Are what religion has delighted to bless

 

Religion and politics separate should remain

From trying to combine them, the wise abstain
