    Re: Who's in hell? Pastor's book sparks eternal debate

    Reminds me of a song by Ray Wylie Hubbard called Conversation With the Devil.

    I had a dream last night I was cast into Hell by a jealous God
    The Devil walked up and said you don't need no lightning rod
    It hardly ever rains down here I can't recall the last storm
    You aint gonna need that leather jacket it gets kinda warm
    There's one way in there's no way out looks like you're to stay
    The place is a mess, it's overcrowded, more are coming in everyday

    I said ah man, wait a minute there's gotta be something wrong
    I aint a bad guy just write these little songs
    I always pay my union dues don't stay in the passing lane
    And he said what about all that whiskey and the cocaine
    I said well yeah but that's no reason to throw me in Hell
    Cause I didn't use the cocaine to get high, I just liked the way it smelled

    He said come on over here son, let me show you around
    Over there's where we put the preachers, I never liked those clowns
    They're always blaming me for everything wrong under the sun
    It aint harder to do what's right, it's just maybe not as much fun
    Then they walk around thinking they're better than me and you
    Then they get caught in a motel room doing what they said not to do

    Now the murderers and the rapists they go in this firey lake
    As well as most of the politicians and the cops on the take
    And all the mothers that wait to get to KMart to spank their kids
    Instead of showing them how to do what's right, they just hit 'em for what they
    And all the daddy's who run off and abandon their daughters and sons
    Oh anybody that hurts a child is gonna burn until there done

    Everybody is down here I said who's up in Heaven with God and the Son
    Oh some saints and mystics and students of metaphysics 101
    People who care and share and love and try to do what's right
    Beautiful old souls who read little stories to their babies every night
    What you wont find up in Heaven are Christian Coalition Right Wing
    Country program directors and Nashville record executives

    Now I said I've made some mistakes, but I'm not as bad as those guys
    How can God do this to me can't she sympathize
    He said you're wrong about God being cruel and mean
    Oh God is the most loving thing that's never been seen
    I said hotshot tell me this which religion is the truest
    He said there all about the same, Budda was not a Christian, but Jesus
    woulda made a good buddist

    Well I thought about my future I didn't seem to have much of one
    I looked around to leave but there was no place to run
    I said I don't suppose I could go back and try living again
    You know like reincarnation I hear that's the way it's always been
    I can't answer that he said you're gonna have to wait for that response
    But it's not any more unusual to be born twice than it is to be born once

    Well it looked like I was gonna be stuck here as far as I could tell
    I thought I might as well suck up you know what the hell
    I said you know that song that Charlie Daniels did
    About how you went down to Georgia and played fiddle against that kid
    He said yeah it broke my heart but you know what are you gonna do
    I said to tell you the truth I thought your solo was the better of the two

    Well then I woke up and I was lying in my bed
    I went upstairs and kissed my little boy on his sleeping head
    I took this dream as a sign from God so I thought I'd better pray
    I said don't ever speak to me directly and thanks anyway
    Now so much has changed about me besides me just giving up red meat
    Some get spiritual cause they see the light and some cause they feel the

    Hell is just a figment of a believer's imagination. ****, if it's true at least all be chilling with some of the greatest musicians and minds to have ever lived.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
