Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

New Pope Condemns pop music
Benedict you're really such a bore
You think pop music is satan's spore
In the trash it should be thrown
And shun the Rolling Stones
No listening to Creed
For evil it will breed
Yes evil it will breed

Benedict you really are so square
You're condemning Queen and even Cher
Rock is poison for mankind
It will corrupt your mind
And even Cheryl Crow
Her songs have got to go
Her songs have got to go

Evil lyrics in "Louie, Louie"
That is what you decree
Even Donnie and Marie
Are not your cup of tea

Benedict says we may go astray
If rock music's what we choose to play
Vile tunes from Motley Crew
They're evil through and through
And songs by R.E.M.
And Pink Floyd you would condemn
You would condemn
condemn condemn

This is nonsense -- a knee-jerk reaction based on misinformation. First of all, Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) was very appropriately speaking about the impropriety of using certain kinds of music at the sacred liturgy (worship service) of the Catholic Church. People (including parodist Silly Willie) have jumped to a lot of conclusions based on quotations taken out of context by Vatican-based liberal, a writer who is a notorious dissenter and basher of the Holy See, Mr. John Allen. Note how slickly Allen wrote the following in the dissenting British journal, "The Tablet," recently ................................... "At the Eighth International Church Music Congress in Rome in 1986, for example, Ratzinger blasted rock music as a 'vehicle of anti-religion'. He said rock and roll is a secular variant of an age-old ecstatic religion, in which man 'lowers the barriers of individuality and personality' to 'liberate himself from the burden of consciousness'. Rock is thus 'the complete antithesis of Christian faith in the redemption'. " ...................... See how Allen quotes, out of context, the characterizations of the Cardinal, but it is ALLEN who provides the "subject" of each phrase -- "rock music" or "rock and roll" or "rock". But the rest of us, who do not have the benefit of the full text of the Cardinal's remarks, really don't know what kind of music (which songs, which groups, etc.) the Cardinal really was criticizing. Allen hid from us the larger context and the noun(s) that the Cardinal used! ================ PLEASE, people, use the brains God gave you, and give people (even elderly priests!) the benefit of the doubt when you don't yet have all the facts.
