Santo Zappa

Músico? Frank Zappa foi sim o maior teólogo de todos os tempos. A prova?

“If you want to get together in any exclusive situation and have people love you, fine. But to hang all this desperate sociology on the idea of The Cloud-Guy who has The Big Book, who knows if you’ve been bad or good and cares about any of it, to hang it all on that, folks, is the chimpanzee part of the brain working.”

“The essence of Christianity is told us in the Garden of Eden story. The fruit that was forbidden was on the tree of knowledge. The subtext is, “All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could be in the Garden of Eden if you had just kept your fucking mouth shut and hadn’t asked any questions.” … Anybody who wants religion is welcome to it, as far as I’m concerned. I support your right to enjoy it. However, I would appreciate it if you exhibited more respect for the rights of those people who do not wish to share your dogma, rapture or necrodestination.”

Hey, we can’t really be dumb
If we’re just following God’s Orders
Hey, let’s get serious…
God knows what he’s doin’
He wrote this book here
An’ the book says:
He made us all to be just like Him,” so…
If we’re dumb…
Then God is dumb…

And if these words you do not heed
Your pocketbook just kinda might recede
When some man comes along and
claims godly need
He will clean you out right through your tweed
That’s right, remember there is a big
difference between kneeling down
and bending over…
He’s got twenty million dollars
In his Heavenly Bank Account…
All from those chumps who was
Born again.[
