This parody is to a song in the LDS Children's Songbook that I always really liked - very melodic. Back in my Mormon days, I was Primary Chorister and Pianist, and this is a song that I liked to sing and play. Within the lyrics of the original song, it says, "What does the Father ask of us? What do the scriptures say? Have faith, have hope, live like his Son, help others on their way. What does he ask? Live like his Son." Obviously, not bad advice.
But, of course, when I looked at this song from my current ExMormon perspective, the parody became an entirely different song and the end result highlights the "stack of lies" that are, in my opinion, at the very core of Mormonism.
The main thrust of this parody is that the Mormon Church is built on a stack of lies, and although TBMs have obviously been brainwashed into "just believing," the internet and Google are not available to help a person find the truth - and when a person does find the truth, the key to realizing what the real truth is found in thinking for yourself. Critical thinking - analyzing all aspects of the subject matter and applying logic to it. If a person does that, then he/she will know what's true and what isn't. Plain and simple.
A STACK OF LIES
Sung to the tune of He Sent His Son - #34 (LDS Children’s Songbook)
What does the Mormon Church hold out as truth beyond compare?
A stack of lies, so fraudulent, deception everywhere.
How could the Mormon Church profess to be the Word of God?
It is not true, that’s very clear – it’s fake and just a fraud.
Why do the members of the church believe that it is true?
They have been brainwashed very well, they haven’t got a clue.
But now we have the Internet, and what does Google say?
Just find the truth, think for yourself, and simply walk away.
What does it say? Think for yourself.
