Behind Enemy Lines – The Army Of God lyrics

Religious zealots, self-proclaimed crusaders
God's bigoted soldiers are nothing more than women-haters
Their beliefs and ideals are taken from the pages of the book of lies
And can be interpreted to any end, any agenda can be propagandized
So Christian soldiers, listen up as god instructs you all to kill and maim
And firebomb women's health care clinics, enacting terror in his name
Employing ignorant, hateful rhetoric to dress their agenda up as fact
And justify their terrorism as a religiously sanctioned divine attack
Health care providers are threatened with slayings and mutilation
Women seeking medical help are subjected to harassment and intimidation
By sick extremists like Clayton Waagner, James kopp and the rev. Donald Spitz
I'm not interested in the twisted lies of morally bankrupt hypocrites
The army of god makes martyrs out of terrorists who kill and maim
The army of god is playing god, condemning others in his name
They actually believe that a woman who's been raped should now be forced to bear a child
In their opinion her violation and unwanted pregnancy should be reconciled
There's only one opinion that matters when it's time to make that choice
And it doesn't belong to a fictitious god
Who supposedly speaks through a bigot's voice
The army of god makes martyrs out of terrorists who kill and maim
The army of god is playing god, condemning others in his name
It's painfully obvious that defending life is really not your goal
It's all about suppressing women's rights with hierarchal control
They embrace their sexist ideology with aspirations to oppress
So if these bigots represent a creation of gods, I'm really not impressed
They even denounce peaceful anti-choice activists as closet abortionists
Because if you're not willing to kill for god or bomb health care clinics
Then you apparently don't understand how precious life really is
And how killing will illustrate that point in some twisted, confused show of justice
The army of god makes martyrs out of terrorists who kill and maim
The army of god is playing god, condemning others in his name
