Shout out, don't hold back.
Lift up your voice like a trumpet.
The U.S. empire is the greatest purveyor of violence
in the world today!
The Pentagon, CIA, NSA, and corporate, political,
and military powers worldwide conspire to control the earth,
crush the poor, and persecute the peace and justice makers.
Yet, day after day,
the rulers and countless people invoke my name,
as if they practiced righteousness
and did not forsake the ordinance of their God.
They delight to invoke my name to bless their violent deeds.
They even use my name to bless their wars and their weapons.
We practice good religion, they say.
We pray and serve our country well.
We keep good law and order.
Look, you serve your own interests, not mine says Yahweh...
