Last night was a GOP “Value Voters” debate. Phyllis Schlafly, Roy Moore, Paul Weyrich, Don Wildmon, Rick Scarborough, and Janet Folger were all in attendance, and Joseph Farah, the founder of WorldNetDaily, moderated. McCain, Guiliani, Romney and Thompson all refused to attend.

Here’s the opening “re-envisioning” of “God Bless America”, performed by the Church of God Choir, from Springfield, Ohio. (Lyrics after the jump.)

Curiously, Ron Paul was not afraid to enter the lion’s den (he faced boos, and a smattering of cheers). His closing statement:

He’s a bright man, and affable, but I really don’t agree with a lot of his views (some of ’em are downright crazy). However, he’s the best candidate in the GOP race, hands-down.

GOD BLESS AMERICA, as re-envisioned by the Church of God Choir, Springfield, Ohio

Why should God bless America?
She?s forgotten he exists
And has turned her back
On everything that made her what she is.

Why should God stand beside her
Through the night with the light from his hand?
God have mercy on America
Forgive her sin and heal our land

The courts ruled prayer out of our schools
In June of ?62
Told the children ?you are your own God now
So you can make the rules?
O say can you see what that choice
Has cost us to this day
America, one nation under God, has gone astray

Why should god bless America?
She?s forgotten he exists
And has turned her back on everything
That made her what she is

Why should God stand beside her
Through the night with the light from his hand?
God have mercy on America
Forgive her sins and heal our land

In ?73 the Courts said we
Could take the unborn lives
The choice is yours don?t worry now
It?s not a wrong, it?s your right

But just because they made it law
Does not change God?s command
The most that we can hope for is
God?s mercy on our land

Why should God bless America?
She?s forgotten he exists
And has turned her back on everything
That made her what she is

Why should God stand beside her
Through the night with the light from his hand?
God have mercy on America
Forgive her sins and heal our land

(Reading from 2nd Chronicles 7:14) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land

God have mercy on America forgive her sins and heal our land.
God have mercy on America forgive her sins and heal our land.

    Personally, I like the changes. They are far more amusing than the boring version I grew up with! ;-).

  • Heh. Some other commentary I saw out there on the intarwebs was that Value Voters “hate America”, to use wingnut logic about criticizing anything American.
