My New Theme Song

I've had Chris Tomlin working on a theme song for me to use like a busker while I'm out trying to get a job. Tell me what you think:

[To the tune of Indescribable ]

Coming up from the mountains of East Tennessee.
A troublemaker from Holst'n Presbytery
Pro-life fundamentalism, vigor and spite
Rebutting the liberals with all of his might.
He's worth shunning

Thumps his Bible, he's unordainable,
What's with this guy? He puts St. Athanasius to shame!
Calling their Marxism fraud!
Confessional, pharisaical,
Falwell could take a few pointers on how to disclaim,
From this irascible clod!

Ever haughty, he tells his teachers where to go.
Disregarding their syllabus, looking for quotes.
Taking classes from Baptist gives the deans a fright.
So they tell him in meetings: "Chris, that just aint right!
They're the bad ones!"

Thumps his Bible, he's unordainable,
What's with this guy? He puts St. Athanasius to shame!
This seminarian's odd!
Pugnacious and untrainable,
Group therapy might not fix him or make him obey.
He presumes to hear from God....

Unfortunately, Chris, when the inmates run the asylum, you have to play by their rules if you want to get anywhere in the asylum.

Blessings in your new call.

heh, sounds about right, Chris.

John - funny how both sides always think the other side is the one in charge and messing things up. I swear if I get one more closet-anabaptist accusing me of not being reformed enough I'll pop.

You don't thump the Bible, it thumped you!

I hoped that you'd write a polka next!

I thought Nurse Ratchet was Stated Clerk?

I believe the operative word in John's apt remark, is the first one. It is unfortunate... but nonetheless true.
