He says he loves Jesus

He says he loves Jesus and Jesus loves him.
He's a modern day prophet forgiving your sins.
He's a radio pirate, has cable show too,
A mistress in Paris, but an eye out for you.

His brand of religion breeds heartbreak and pain.
He's a born again Christian with something to gain.
Deceitfully convincing his flock of salvation,
In return he receives a standing ovation.

His glorious sermons preach schemes of division.
Exquisitely crafted to prevent any schisms,
He triumphantly pits his will against right.
He lusts after money, he covets your wife.

An unnatural affection for boys under ten,
He's drugged quite a few on his couch in the den.
He's suspicious of women and fearful of men.
There's a gun by his bed marked 'specially' for them.

He's a beast. He's a monster. It's sad but it's true.
His secret agenda keeps Jesus from you.
Afraid you'll rise up if you find out the truth,
He's afraid you'll tip off your wife and your youth.

He's a huckster, a shyster, and the devil disguised.
He's a freak who insists only his God is wise.
This prince of invective is consumed by desires.
While preaching forgiveness he's stoking your fires.
