50th LDS Hymn Parody - and 100th Blog Post

OK, this is my 50th LDS hymn parody - and my 100th blog post.  Pretty cool, huh??!!  Now I gotta set a new goal...

As far as this LDS hymn parody goes, I think it's pretty much self-explanatory.  YOU CAN MAKE THE FUTURE BRIGHT if you leave the Mormon Church - and your life will be so much better.  I can say that with certainty because that's exactly what I have experienced.  Truly... the future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!

Obviously, there are obstacles in any chosen path, including people telling you that you've chosen the wrong fork in the road.  But there are a multitude of rewards in store for those who follow their conscience and assert their individuality.  Knowing for sure that the Mormon Church is built on a stack of lies, I know there is no other path available for me.  Staying with a religion that is obviously false was not an option for me.  Staying true to myself was the only thing I could do. 

Those are my words of wisdom for the day.  And here is my 50th LDS hymn parody...

YOU CAN MAKE THE FUTURE BRIGHT
Sung to the tune of You Can Make the Pathway Bright, #228

You can make the future bright,
And it will be out-of-sight,
If you leave the Mormon Church.
If it fills you with dismay,
It is worth the price you’ll pay,
If you leave the Mormon Church today.


(Chorus)
If you leave the Mormon Church,
They will say you went astray,
Gave eternal life away.
And the guilt trip they will play,
If you leave the Mormon Church today.


Though the scriptures they’ll recite
As they try with all their might
To defend the Mormon Church.
They’ll insist that you must pray,
Push the evil one away,
If you leave the Mormon Church today.


(Chorus)
If you leave the Mormon Church,
They will say you went astray,
Gave eternal life away.
And the guilt trip they will play,
If you leave the Mormon Church today.


It is only common sense
That it's built on false pretense,
Lies abound within the church.
Oh, the peace that you will find
When the web of lies unwind,
And you leave the Mormon Church behind.


(Chorus)
When you leave the Mormon Church,
They may turn their backs on you,
And say you don’t have a clue.
But the truth will set you free,
When you’re out, I know you will agree.
