You call yourself the moral majority
We call ourselves the people in the real world
Trying to rub us out, but we're going to survive
God must be dead if you're alive

You say, 'god loves you. come and buy the good news'
Then you buy the president and swimming pools
If Jesus don't save 'til we're lining your pockets
God must be dead if you're alive

Circus-tent con-men and southern belle bunnies
Milk your emotions then they steal your money
It's the new dark ages with the fascists toting bibles
Cheap nostalgia for the Salem witch trials

Stodgy ayatollahs in their double-knit ties
Burn lots of books so they can feed you their lies
Masturbating with a flag and a bible
God must be dead if you're alive

Blow it out your ass, Jerry Falwell
Blow it out your ass, Jesse Helms
Blow it out your ass, Ronald Reagan
What's wrong with a mind of my own?

You don't want abortions, you want battered children
You want to ban the pill as if that solves the problem
Now you want to force us to pray in school
God must be dead if you're such a fool

You're planning for a war with or without Iran
Building a police state with the Ku Klux Klan
Pissed at your neighbor? don't bother to nag
Pick up the phone and turn in a fag

Blow it out your ass, Terry Dolan
Blow it out your ass, Phyllis Schlafly
Ram it up your cunt, Anita
'Cause god must be dead
If you're alive
God must be dead
If you're alive

    General CommentYeah. something on the Anita Bryant wikipedia article that got linked really struck me- how her anti-gay cmapaing was called "save our children" or some bull like that. I love how facist assholes who have no constitutional backing for their opinions go "oh, this is plaguing our children. We need to ban it/get rid of it." all politicians do it, and I think it's one of the worst things about america- using kids as a shield for your asshat plans. too bad DK didn't write a song about that. (lemme know if they did.)

    General CommentOnly in the 80s was the morality movement so polarized.

    Nowadays, the Liberals are into it just as deep as the Republicans, just without the Christian angle. Tipper Gore, Joe Lieberman anybody?

    Any DK fans remember Jello's crusade against Dianne Feinstein when she was the mayor of SanFran? She's one of the most powerful Liberals in the country now, and more totalitarian than ever.

    But I guess since they're not Christian fundies that makes them safe, right? Dumbasses.

    General CommentBrilliant political and social commentary by Jello Biafro and the Dead Kenenedys. This is basically centered around the Moral Majority (back in the eighties), a Christian organization that pushed its political agenda through a number of mediums, including televangelism.

    General CommentThis is so true. I'm so fucking sick of all these fake Christians with their political agendas and all their money grubbing bullshit. All they do is talk about money and brainwash people into donating to them and making them rich. They seem to be forgetting that Jesus said "it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven".
