I’ve loved this song for quite a while, however the other day it occurred to me that it may have an anti-catholic line in it, below are the lyrics for the first verse:
Maybe I’m a pessimist
What if all the gray clouds in the sky
Would follow me home tonight?
Maybe I’m an atheist
What if there’s no God waiting to meet me
At the end of the working week?
Full lyrics are here:
I’m afraid to listen to this song and many others such as Green Day’s ‘Jesus of Suburbia’ as I fear it may be wrong to listen to in the eyes of God. I’m not listening to them to offend God, I’m listening to them because I enjoy the song overall.
Can someone shed some light on the situation regarding specifically these and similar songs? Thanks.
