For God Sake Find Another Chorus

“Allahu akbar.” God is great. I’m pretty sure that’s true, if He exists. But really, does He want to hear it every time some whacko kills a cartoonist or kidnaps a schoolgirl or blows a flock of human lambs to tiny shredded bits? I think it must annoy Him, for God must be a deep thinker, given He thought up absolutely everything. It must be galling to have some crazed misguided fool invoke your name as justification for whatever hateful task he’s set himself. In this, no one’s hands are clean. I’m looking at you, holy fundamentalist of any stripe.
