“All sects are different, because they come from men; morality is everywhere the same, because it comes from God.” -Voltaire
Now it is high time for change as I peruse this land
With forethought to eliminate the things I understand
To be the cause that separates mankind from one another
Destroying ties that bind a sister from her brother
As I look down I recognize religions built with hands
Have lifted up great barriers that prevent each man
From crossing roads of freedom to love another soul
Religion set a border line and this is not love’s goal
As I look up I realize that the author of our love
Had set no limitations on this gift from up above
