So, here on the religious and ethic forum is a list for all the song that are stupid, meaningless and idiotic if indeed there is no GOD.


While the first verse of “The Star-Spangled Banner” is widely known by the American public, the last three verses are generally omitted in performances. Here are all the four verses, as they were written over 200 years ago by Key:

O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,
’Tis the star-spangled banner—O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Good Bless America so it can keep bombing and invading countries that never did anything to us.

Here is yet another. Presented first is the story surrounding the song and the first verse.

God Bless America was written by George Gershwin during the Influenza Epidemic of 1918... All the countries that never did us any harm ---
And there is this event where no harm was intended. We can thank GOD, Japan had know idea how vulnerable the United States was left after that attack. Hawaii could have been invaded with very little response at that moment ------ but it didn't and we were able to even raise some of those ships in the war effort: Remembering Pearl Harbor

Philippians 2 King James Version (KJV)
1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,

2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

There is only one line mentioning heaven, and one line mentioning God. Both in th 4th verse, which nobody ever eeven hears. If you think the song is stupid, meaningles, and idiotic without those two virtually unknown lines, then you are an idiot.

Without GOD we are DIVISIBLE. Only with GOD can we stand INDIVISIBLE with liberty and justice for all. Ideals are but cheap words unless they rest on an IMMOVABLE FOUNDATION. Only GOD is solid ground. All other is sinking sand. And the likely reason we don't sing that 4th verse is that it reminds some people that they are mortal and NEED GOD. And frankly, I find that most songs get to the climatic point in the closing verse and not necessarily at the start.

I'm sure that's what they tell you in your church. They tell you a lot of crap that just isn't true. However, assuming all your rhetoric is true, the country has been divided on racial, religious, and gender lines since it's inception, so your God sucks on that whole indivisable thing.

The only thing stupid, meaningless, and idiotic is the thread premise.
