Romanovsky & Phillips – Hymn lyrics

(I have no patience left for the Catholic Church. For those who
Do, it is my hope that you will not compromise yourselves but
Will aggressively work towards bringing them into the 20th
If there's something to be learned
From examining the past
It's that institutions change
Or else they do not last
Now you are such a dinosaur
In the ancient ways you think
And if you do not soon adapt
You too will be extinct
I believe that Christ's intention
Many centuries ago
Was to serve and to enlighten
And to guide our spiritual growth
But the latest word from Rome
Is not a loving one at all
If Jesus walked on earth today
I think he'd be appalled
Now the priesthood's quickly shrinking
But you won't let women in
And instead of teaching safer s**
You condemn it as a sin
You deny all women the right
To decide their bodies' fate
Suggesting that their purpose here
Is just to procreate
You say that gays and lesbians
Are fallen from God's grace
And tacitly you sanction
All the violence that we face
You distort the Bible's words
To support your platitudes
But bigotry is not
A very Christian attitude
Now as for reformation
I have very little hope
But if you think it can be done
Go and tell it to the Pope
'Cause the clergy and parishioners
Who are still inside the closet
Support this persecution
Even if they do not cause it
