I ain't afraid

&feature=share

Holly Near: I ain't afraid

I ain't afraid of your Yahweh
I ain't afraid of your Allah
I ain't afraid of your Jesus
I'm afraid of what you do in the name of your god

I ain't afraid of your churches
I ain't afraid of your temples
I ain't afraid of your praying
I'm afraid of what you do in the name of your god

Verse
Rise up to your higher power
Free up from fear, it will devour you
Watch out for the ego of the hour
The ones who say they know it
Are the ones who will impose it on you

Chorus

Verse
Rise up, and see a higher story
Free up from the gods of war and glory
Watch out for the threats of purgatory
The spirit of the wind wont make a killing off of sin and satan

I aint afraid of your Bible
I aint afraid of your Torah
I aint afraid of your Koran
Dont let the letter of the law
Obscure the spirit of your love it's killing us

I aint afraid of your money
I aint afraid of your borders
I aint afraid of your choices

I aint afraid of your Sunday
I aint afraid of your Sabbath
I aint afraid of your teachers

I aint afraid of your dances
I aint afraid of your music
I aint afraid of your children
I'm afraid of what you do in the name of your god

1. I think the imagery of the video is inconsistent with the lyrics

I feel the song is against all types of extremism in religion, but not necessarily an atheist song.

Just my opinion.

3. No I'm not offended and you might not agree with me about the intent of the song.

The lyrics and her voice are beautiful.

I like that in DU we can discuss this stuff.

5. A good song with a timeless warning.

 

It has always been such. If all the various gods are so powerful, why do their followers have to do the dirty work of killing the non-believers?

6. More and more

people are less and less afraid to come out of the atheism closet. Our numbers grow daily. Which is the best thing for any chance at peaceful coexistence on this planet.
